More than just "Readers"
I was not sure I would get comfortable using these and since they are not cheap I hesitated. Ok, I now have two pairs for different cars and got a pair for my wife who loves them also.
The magnification is low in the lens so reading a book on the beach might require a bit of "up" adjustment but since you are plopped in place it is not an issue.
I read my watch without thinking and same for other routine tasks.
What I don't like is I got SOOOO, used to these glasses that when I go inside and take them off, I now can't see anything close up! And of course the Maui Jim lenses are the usual outstanding lenses that I have gotten used to with my other pairs of non-readers.
If you need readers and are even considering these, make the investment, you will love them.
Well worth the price of admission for these glasses.
