3 Reasons You Never See Superheroes Wearing Reading Glasses

Some days I feel like a superhero. A real life super-powered woman of steel! Take this morning for instance. Before 8 AM I had made breakfast, packed three lunches, fed two cats, a dog and four goldfish, drove two kids to two different schools, folded five piles of laundry, unloaded the dishwasher and got myself to work. Now if that doesn’t take superpowers, I don’t know what does.


But even if I feel like a superhero, I could never really be a superhero. O.K., sure, they don’t really make superhero movies about 40-something suburban moms, but that aside, I could never be a superhero because, well, I am completely dependent on reading glasses. And superheroes don’t wear reading glasses.


Why can’t superheroes wear readers, you ask?


  1. A superhero does heroic deeds


You know, deeds like fighting crime and saving lives. I once rescued a pet hamster from a vacuum cleaner hose, which I think would qualify, except that before I could take apart the vacuum I had to go hunting around to find my reading glasses. In the high-stakes world of superhero crime fighting and life saving, seconds count. There is simply no time to go rummaging around for a pair of readers.


  1. A superhero needs a great fitting costume


You could argue that my Saturday morning yoga pants might qualify, but true superhero costumes are elaborate and complicated. How would Wonder Woman ever thread that golden lasso through such a small belt loop if she were dependent on reading glasses?


  1. A superhero has supernatural or superhuman “special” powers


Did you read about my morning above? The very nature of motherhood requires “special” powers. But, unfortunately, I couldn’t even chop a salad without my reading glasses. Those pesky readers slow me down, get in my way, and sadly disqualify me from superhero status.


But even if I never get my own action figure, I was happy to find out that with the KAMRA® inlay I could free myself from the constant frustrations of reading glasses. And that, my friend, is a step in the superhero direction!


– A 40-something presbyope and superhero wannabe


What is the KAMRA® inlay? Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the KAMRA inlay is a mini-ring with an opening – or pinhole – in the center. The pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye, providing a natural range of vision – from near to far. It offers long-term performance so that you can continue to enjoy clear near vision over time, even as presbyopia progresses.
