Don’t worry if you’ve left your reading glasses at home. Local restaurants are pairing up with a local eye-care practice to provide diners with glasses in various strengths so they can read the menu.
Cafe Troia, The Capital Grille, Rusty Scupper, and The Prime Rib are currently participating in MenuMates, a program sponsored by the Katzen Eye Group.
Of course, if you have an iPhone and forgotten your glasses, there’s an app for aging eyes called, appropriately, Over 40 Magnifier and Flashlight, for 99 cents in the iTunes store.
It’s a handy tool for my job. There’s also a mirror mode so I can wipe the chocolate off my chin, too.
