Love the look, high quality frame, but lenses smudge easily.11/20/2016
Comments

I love the look of these glasses but I have to clean the lenses constantly. They get smudged quite easily. But they look neat and smart. So I LOVE the look. It's worth the cost, in that sense, because the frame is high quality. But lenses smudge easily. They seem like poor quality plastic and they feel like they may pop out eventually (sooner than later).

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Sturdy, Comfortable, Stylish
Cons
Poor Quality

Wanted a new look and turns out this petite round style turned out perfect. Thought they might be to small but not at all. So very comfortable to wear. Never in the way of anything even laying down on your side. Bought one in black then went back and bought another. They just worked so well for me. If you have to wear glasses why not something a little different. This item is just perfect.

Sharp Looking Glasses!7/11/2016
Comments

These are wonderful, good looking glasses and comfortable too! As readers, the magnification is accurate and the lenses are just large enough to cover your full field of vision when reading. Not used to wearing anything but metal frames, I am concerned that the plastic frames might crack. But so far they seem to be quite sturdy and I've had no problems.rnThese are definitely not your pharmacy, off-the-rack reading glasses - I've not seen anything in any of the stores as attractive. And the price is attractive too!rnI was so impressed with the look and quality of The Basil, the price and promptness of Readers.com in filling my order that I have already purchased another pair of glasses from them! Great product, great company.

I love the fact you can wear them on your nose. The curvature is perfect. You don't have to take them off to see at a distance.

My man looks fabulous!6/21/2017

Bought these for my husband. He wasn't initially sure about the Bridge, but now he wears them all the time. They stay on, are small enough to peer over, and large enough to be comfortable for reading and computing. A hit!

So cute. I love the round frames and also the fact that I can get them in a small size. You can't do that in the local drug store.
