They look more like optometrist glasses than they do drugstore reading glasses.
You can't go wrong.
Although it has been several months since the most recent review, I can confirm that the color and size issues remain.
COLOR: The frame color was significantly darker than the item pictured. It was much closer to the color of these glasses, which I also own: Asset Eyewear Reading Glasses - Round Tortoise / ROUND TORTOISE +1.00-R333TRT100.
SIZE: While I expected the frame width to be best suited for a narrower/smaller face - which it was - what I didn't expect was how short the temple pieces were - more than 1" shorter than those of the other product mentioned. They are appropriately sized for a child's head, not an adult's. I needed to heat and reshape the ear curve, moving it toward the end of the temple piece to make it fit my head properly.
Again, not a bad set of readers for the price, but rely on the reviews to know what you are getting before you order these.
I do need prescription lenses as my eyes are slightly different and I have those made at For Eyes or one of the discount opticians. But, as we all know, we can never find our glasseswhen we need them. So I keep at least 3 pair of these American Readers around the house so one is always handy. I can also throw them in my pocket when on the run and they are there. I've yet to break a pair (as I did with Peepers) and the plastic lenses have not scratched easily.
So these will NOT replace prescription glasses that you eye doctor will prescribe, but they are good economical choice when you need to read a newspaper or a menu or sit at your PC and things are "not quite sharp.
So, all in all, I can recommend them as a general product and these tortoise ovals in particular.
Note that over the years the exact color of the tortoise design has changed a little so not all my frames match. But all are - as described - "tortoise shell" in pattern.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
