    Although I very much liked the look as well as how light they were the first pair had a for lack of a better description warpedness when you looked straight ahead they were fine but if you moved your eyes the side angles were distorted so they very kindly shipped another pair and sadly the same issues

    Lens is not clear5/20/2015
    Comments

    First pair came and I loved them but when I looked through the lens the area near the bridge of the nose was very blurry in the left lens. I contacted Readers and they were great, said they'd send another and check for defect before sending but the second pair came with the same issue. I just kept them to have for a spare in the car but magnification is not accurate. Loved the style and weight but issues with quality of the lens.

    So Lightweight!2/7/2016
    Comments

    I just received these a few days ago and I'm already back ordering another pair. Aside from the typical concerns of accurate magnification, comfort and appearance, a huge issue for me is "weight." I cannot stand to wear glasses that weigh heavily on my nose and are therefore uncomfortable and sometimes even leave marks behind. I am on my computer or reading my kindle at least 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, and I am truly appreciative of the Somerset Flexible Readers.

    Pros
    Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Comfortable, Stylish

    Perfect readers!11/9/2015
    Comments

    I need readers for work since I sit at a computer all day. These are fabulously light and don't hurt the bridge of my nose after endless wearing. Plus, they look great! They seem flimsy when you first open the package, but wow, the light weight is awesome! Not sure about other reviewers, but I these glasses are very clear and sharp.

    Loved the glasses but the magnification is off. As you look toward the nose piece it is very blurry. Called Readers.com and they were great, said they would send out a new pair and have them checked before they did. They sent them out promptly but the second pair had the same issue. Magnification is off and inconsistent. Keeping them for a spare but they make my head spin if I look to the inside area.

    Favorite go-to glasses7/8/2015
    Comments

    These are my favorite glasses and I have a glasses addiction! I have different pairs in every corner but I will search for these instead of reaching for another pair. I like them so much I am ordering 2 more today. My favorite things about them is that the allow me to read the computer and paper, they are light on my nose, they are very durable (have sat on them more than once) and they look great!
