Staring at the computer screen all day can be such a drag, and not to mention a headache! Fix your eye strain and aches immediately with our Fairbanks Computer Reader. This full framed style features magnification throughout the entire lens. A slight yellow tint helps soften the brightness of the computer screen while an anti-reflective coating helps keep images sharp. The retro shape is always a classic, and will flatter men and women.

Please Note: This reader has curved temples creating a very snug fit.

Frames are too uncomfortable for me to wear them2/15/2016
Comments

While the yellow tint on the lens does cut down on computer glare I was unable to keep these on for more than 15 minutes. The frames wrap around the back of my head and apply pressure that over time gives me a headache. This wrap around style frame pulls the lens too close to my eyes and my eyelashes brush them every time I blink. I am an average size person so I'm sure there are many people who will find the fit to be similar. Maybe they'll work for you if you are unusually petite.rnI can't wear them and would never buy them again.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Sturdy
Cons
Priced Too High, Uncomfortable

Got these to try. I like the light weight. Good clarity. Just enough coating to cut screen glare without looking like full on yellow. No spring hinges. Those are nice to have...

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Comfortable, True To Size
Cons
Flimsy

I will buy this product again and again in the future.8/25/2016
Comments

I have been using my Fairbanks Computer Reader glasses the minute I received them and I can't say enough about my glasses. I spend up to 3-6 hours on my Samsung Google Laptop now and then and do surveys, check my e-mails, go on my social sites and never once did I my eyes get tired. I would recommend the Fairbanks Computer Reader glasses to me a 5 star quality product.

An article on this same site (http://www.readers.com/blog/benefits-of-computer-glasses/) says needs for computer readers are different than regular readers because: "Most prescription eyewear corrects either near or far vision. Reading glasses are designed for close work. Unfortunately, most of us position our computer screens in an intermediate zone about two feet in front of us." These glasses are NO different than my regular $3 drug store book readers except they are tinted. When I called Cust. Serv. I was told I need a lower power (1.50 - 1.75) to fix the problem since lower power changes the focal length of the glasses. Thing is, my regular readers are +1.50 and again, I see NO difference between them and these new glasses. Disappointed that these aren't computer readers, designed to help me see a monitor 24" or so away. To me, they are regular reading glasses that are tinted and labeled "Computer Readers." Won't do any more biz with this company.

Did this product arrive as described? If not, in what ways can we improve?
Yes.
How do these readers fit?
Fit is okay. A little snug, but the plastic is flexible enough not to put a lot of pressure on my head
What do you like the most about these readers?
Not much. I see no difference in the "computer readers" than my regular book reading glasses.

great glasses7/26/2016
Comments

I have a long head from nose to ear and have trouble finding glasses that fit right. These arms are long enough plus. The light tinting reduces eyestrain. I got +2 (up from+1.5 I have used for 20+ years) and the computer monitors are in focus @ ~ 24". Solved my problem, except now I want a pair for home too. Really like.

Not actually for computer distance... Better for close reading6/6/2016
Comments

Not appropriate for distant monitors... But would be ok I suppose for close reading ( a book or papers). I don't have eye strain with these thankfully, and was disappointed these won't be helpful in the office. Would not recommend if you position your monitors more that 16" away

Pros
Stylish
Cons
Priced Too High

Anyone with a computer should own a pair of these.8/7/2016
Comments

Anyone with a computer should own a pair of these. They were so inexpensive I took a chance and now I love them. They're conformable to wear and the subtle tint helps with eye strain. Bravo.

I never work on the computer without these. If you have a great distance contact lens prescription and are over the age of 40, it usually means that you get tired reading things close up. These glasses fix the magnification issues and the glare reduction is a plus. I ordered 2 pair after having my first for a day so I can have pairs at home and at work. You will love them and at the price you can't go wrong giving them a try.

Frame is brittle9/11/2016
Comments

This reader is shaped for a specific head shape and is not flexible. Mine snapped below the nose frame on each lens. Simply not very sturdy. There are much better readers out there!

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Stylish
Cons
Break Easily, Uncomfortable
