First time needing reading glasses
on June 12, 2010
Just as the title above mentions, I am new to the needs of reading glasses. I visited an Optometrist to have my eyes checked because I found myself 'straight arming' everything I was trying to read but some things I could not adjust and I had no idea how much stress I was going through until my visit. Fortunately everything checked out fine and all I needed was some inexpensive level '1' reading glasses. I was first introduced to the Visualites by the eyeglass shop across the hall from the Optometrist. I tried several on and always came back to Visualites b/c they were light, flexible and clear plastic lenses. I was told by a few veterans of reading glasses to get more than just one pair. Well I learned the hard way and went on a business trip without them and had to purchase a heavier and more expensive 'cheaters' from the rotating rack to get me through. As soon as I could I ordered 3 more pairs from Amazon/Visualites to have in the car, office, and around the house. These Visualites come in a great selections of colors and lens strength, a nice compact case and at $20 a great price. I assume I will graduate from my current 1.25 to something else as the years go by and I will only buy Visualites.
