Great Style. Piece of Crap2/21/2016
Comments

Well. they are under $15. You get them on sale. I go through at least a pair every couple of weeks. The b.s. hinges just disintegrate under any kind of normal wear. Is it worth it? Only if you, like me, lose your reading glasses often enough that you won't kick yourself too hard when these inevitably break. At least you'll have a couple tucked in your drawer.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Comfortable, Stylish
Cons
Break Easily, Flimsy, Poor Quality

Good bang for your buck6/21/2016
Comments

Even though I purchased these to keep by my computer I still wanted something stylish and affordable. These definitely hit the mark on these two counts. They don't sit comfortably high on my nose, leaving red marks but in all honesty so do my $500 Gucci's. The pair I received is black which (I am pretty sure) is not what I ordered. I wanted light brown or something more tortoise shell looking. I could have sent them back for an exchange but for an item at the (great low) price it hardly seemed worth it. I will never buy readers at Rite Aid etc. again, these are less expensive, sturdier and more stylish.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Sturdy, High Quality, Scratch Resistant, Stylish, True To Size
Cons
Uncomfortable

Cheap, but effective1/13/2016
Comments

Despite being relatively inexpensive, I still expected better quality construction. Three pieces of plastic (plus lenses) screwed together, not even a metal hinge. Almost toy-like. For the price, I would expect a 2- or 3-pack of this quality.

Comments

When shopping on this website for these glasses I wondered why I could find no description or claims about the lenses themselves. Now I know why: they are made of a slightly milky material. They're not crystal clear!

Poor Quality
