Many people tend to enjoy reading books or magazines by lying down in bed or on a hammock and holding their reading material in the hand. It can be quite pleasurable and relaxing when you are reading in this position. Having said that, sometimes you might feel a strain, particularly on the neck, due to your posture.
Instead of straining your neck and not reading comfortably, Hammacher Schlemmer has introduced uniquely designed Supine Reading Glasses which allow users to read even when they are lying supine in bed. These interesting lightweight glasses employ two optical-quality glass prisms that bend reader’s vision 90º providing easy reading from a recumbent position. By having a pair of the Supine Reading Glasses, users no longer need to support their head with pillows or hold the book awkwardly above their face. The Supine Reading Glasses cost about $50.
