I love these readers! I am 53 and had cataract surgery about 4 months ago. I have been waiting to get a new prescription from my eye doctor but have been unable to due to complications. I wanted a pair of glasses to take on vacation so I ordered these. They are perfect! I ordered 2 pair from another online company also so I compared side by side and the Readers.com glasses are much better and way less expensive. I will order again and definitely recommend to my family and friends.

I have bought about 10 pairs, in case they go out of style. They10/20/2016

Neither flimsy nor super-high quality frames....another reason for me to have bought more! Were the Bateses I bought a year and a half ago a little better quality than currently, or do I imagine so?

Very nice glasses, perfect for some of us.10/24/2015

I wanted plastic frames that I could put on top of my head occasionally without the specs catching in my hair. These glasses are the answer. They're well-made, durable, and the large lenses are so easy to read through. I'll buy this model again!

I hate wearing reading glasses because most of them make you look like an old fogie. I had a pair just like these for a while but unfortunately they broke this year. I was so happy to find this pair on readers.com. Just what I wanted. rnI Have gotten so many compliments about how they look on me. rnI LOVE these glasses!!

They are too heavy for me but the lens quality is superb. I'll suffer through until I can find a similar style with less mass.

I had a favorite frame that is no longer available...these fit well and look almost as good on me. Bates is probably my go-to frame for a while.
