1. Pre-moistened disposable wipes to easily remove dirt from your lenses so you're not straining to see.

Zeiss Lens Cleaning Wipes are truly my favorite glasses cleaners! My dad put me onto these and they're the best because they are multi-purpose. Once you use these gentle wipes to clean the raindrops off your glasses (my pet peeve), you can use them to wipe off your phone (plus the camera), and your laptop! I even sometimes use them if I see a spot on my mirror. And best of all — they do NOT leave streaks!

Promising review: "You simply CANNOT beat these for the ease in use or the great results! They are awesome for cleaning glasses, but also for wiping off the PC screen, iPad, smartphone screen, sunglasses straps, you name it! Now we keep some around the car in case you get your hands sticky, pop one out and wipe off, and it removes any sticky feeling, as well as helps to get rid of bacteria (especially if you don't have any sanitizing gel handy)! You will find they really help you out on a day to day basis." —Been there, tried that

Get them from Amazon for $14.90+ (available is five sizes) or Walmart for $13.95.

2. Anti-slip hooks for keeping your glasses in place, even when you're bending over to tie your shoe.

Promising review: "I knew the best way to test these out would be to wear them to work (at a bbq restaurant) where I'm constantly moving up and down and getting a little sweaty. My glasses never moved! It was amazing, these are a must buy! They're very discreet, which I like. From the side view, you can't even tell they're there at all! It takes a few seconds to adjust when you put your glasses on once these are on the glasses but when you get them where you like it, your glasses won't move until you take them off. They don't bother my ears or pull my hair." —ChadbdotGet them from Amazon for $3.49.

3. A mini toolkit to help replace those missing screws that make your glasses fit awkwardly.

Promising review: "I only needed new nose pads (lost one) but figured I'd go and get an entire kit for how cheap it was! Holy cow I didn't even realize there were that many different screws that are used with glasses. I'm prepared to have this for many many years!! Awesome to have on hand just in case anything breaks. Love that it comes with tweezers because even with my small hands the screws are still hard to hold and place." —Courtney & ChuckGet it from Amazon for $7.99.

5. An easy-to-apply natural wax to keep specs from slipping so you're not constantly pushing them back up.

This product is a beeswax-based blend created with all natural-and certified-organic Ingredients!Promising Review: "I got this for my wife. She has naturally oily skin and wears plastic framed glasses, so she has problems with them constantly slipping down her face. This product works great to help hold her glasses in place without raising the center of vision with nose pads. The wax will wear off naturally, so she applies the nerd wax every day or two. But don't worry, the wax won't wipe off and stick to your face, it just seems to sort of disappear." —AnthonyGet it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three sizes).

6. A reusable microfiber cleaner brush that'll easily clean both sides of your lenses, so you can comfortably read without seeing smudges.

Promising review: "I bought these for family members and they just love them. My husband said they are good for touchups but he still uses the spray and cloth to deep clean. Our housekeeper saw them and used it to clean her glasses and she asked where I got them. So I bought her a pack. My mother-in-law keeps texting me how she loves them. So I guess all in all they are a good product." —pati3180Get it from Amazon for $6.15.

7. A handy assorted nose pad kit for when your pads go missing or the ones you have just don't feel right.

Promising review: "I have wire-rimmed glasses, and only need glasses for close up work. So I am constantly taking my glasses off and putting them on. I am continually losing the little plastic nose pads on my glasses. We can go to our eye doctor's office, but it is a half-hour drive away and we have to plan a time to go there. This set of nose pads was so delightful to receive! I can choose between various styles of nose pads and get exactly what I want." —Never Too Old To LearnGet them from Amazon for $9.99.

8. Over-the-ear headphones that won't be painful and battle with your glasses for ear space. Finally!

Promising review: "These headphones are VERY comfortable for long editing and/or music sessions. I also wear glasses and I still found them comfortable to wear for over two hours with no problem. The self-adjusting band is definitely not a gimmick. It works perfectly and I don't have to readjust the headset afterward as the ear cups never allowed my ears to touch the speakers. Lastly, the sound is amazing! I'm not an audiophile but I was truly surprised at how clear and detailed the audio is from these headphones." —EshcoleGet it from Amazon for $29.17 (available in three styles) or Walmart for $29.17.

Promising review "This is awesome! I bought this for my eyeglasses because I am constantly taking them off (I only wear them for nearsightedness, mostly for driving or attending presentations). The chain feels more like jewelry than anything and doesn't irritate my skin." —Danielle Myers Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors)

11. 3D movie clip-ons for when the paper ones from the theater just don't feel right over your frames.

Promising review: "I wear prescription glasses which, for whatever reason, have always made things difficult for watching 3D movies. I can put the 3D glasses on over my normal glasses and that will work, kind of, but I have to re-adjust things every 10–20 minutes or my 3D will stop being, well, 3D. Last night I watched a movie for the first time with these clip-ons, and it was the first time I've fully enjoyed a 3D film. I didn't feel like I was wearing anything but my normal glasses (mostly) and the film stayed in 3D for me the whole time I was in the theater. I can now finally appreciate 3D films to their full extent, and I couldn't be happier." —Y|yukichigaiGet it from Amazon for $8.99.

13. A magnetic glasses holder for your shirt when your glasses are too tight to comfortably put on top of your head.

Promising review: "I have struggled for years with my glasses falling out of my shirt pocket and onto the floor. I have tried eyeglass necklaces\strap holders which either breaks or chokes me when it gets snagged. The eyeglass necklaces\strap holders crashes my glasses into something which often break my glasses. Now my job no longer allows the straps or necklace for my glasses. My wife suggested that I try ReadeREST because she noticed a person at work with it. Something so simple that makes me smile every time I reach for my glasses. My glasses are right where I put them and when I bend over to pick something up they don't fall out of my pocket or crash into anything. It makes my glasses easy to reach when I am in a tight area." —NereekGet two from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two colors) or one from Walmart for $9.99.
