Keep Eyeglasses Nearby with an Eyeglass Chain

Updated on March 26, 2014

Try an Eyeglass Chain, Necklace or Leash for your eyeglasses

Are you looking for an easy way to hold onto your eyeglasses, reading glasses or sunglasses? Keep glasses close by with a stylish eyeglass chain or necklace. If you misplace or lose your glasses, it can be a huge waste of time trying to find them. Using an eyeglass chain keeps your glasses in place and available at all times. No need to set them down or worry about breakage and you always know where to find your glasses.

An eyeglass chain is great for sunglasses and reading glasses too. A thoughtful gift for anyone who wears glasses.

Debate?

Have you ever lost or broken your eyeglasses?

What is the difference between an eyeglass necklace, chain or leash?

(and sometimes lanyard)

As I search for different ways to keep from losing my eyeglasses, I find that many of the descriptions are used interchangeably for the same product. I found no distinct meanings of each term, but that most people like to call them what they prefer. So with that in mind, this is what I think an eyeglass necklace, chain, leash and lanyard mean.

Eyeglass Necklace- A pretty beaded style necklace with two loops to attach to the ends or your eyeglasses.

Eyeglass Chain- Made of a chain type metal with either loops to attach to your glasses or one large loop at the bottom to hold your glasses.

Eyeglass Leash- This could be any version of the above two referenced. Necklace or chain with varying lengths.

Lanyard- Usually used for ID Badges, but I have seen this term for eyeglasses also.

Why I like an Eyeglass Necklace.....

I wear prescription glasses and sunglasses and I find it to be very tiresome to juggle back and forth between eyeglass cases in my handbag. I also have very sensitive eyes and I need to wear sunglasses when outside. I find it so much easier to wear an eyeglass necklace and easily inter-change glasses. When constantly going from outdoors to indoor places, such as shopping, sightseeing and work related tasks, an easy way to change eyeglasses is with an eyeglass chain .

I know exactly where my glasses are without digging through my handbag and my family and friends are so thankful for the time it saves!
