Reading Glasses is a Google Chrome browser extension that allows users to focus on the text they are currently reading.

Similar to how some video streaming sites allow users to dim the lights on content surrounding a video, turning on Reading Glasses fades away sidebars, unrelated text, and ads around the desired reading material.

Reading Glasses and other services like Instapaper encourage users to digest long form reading online by removing distractions and providing an additional method to focus.
