I wear these for my nightly reading before I fall asleep. My best friend says that I now "look like Harry Potters grandmother"! I also wear them when hand sewing and watching t.v.simultaneously. they are very comfortable and I really like the long earpieces.

I bought these with 5 other styles. I was new to Readers. These are my absolute favorite! I went back to the site to order more in other color combos, alas, most are already sold out. I hope Readers will get these in again. Next time I will buy several in each color?

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!

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Comfortable, Stylish

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

I own over 20 pair and love the look, the functionality of all. I use a cord on the Basil which means I never lose them. My only complaint is there could be better scratch resistance coating and better quality, but I understand any cost concerns re price.rnrnFun, fun, fun

Exceptional value and very stylish9/26/2016

The multiple readers I have purchased in this style fit perfectly. The V-nose places them where I only look through them when I look down, therefore never having to take them off. I no longer leave my glasses around the country. Exceptional value and beautifully crafted, durable as well.
