So long neck pain.
Your neck wouldn't hurt as bad if your climber wasn't hang-dogging each bolt, or if you were belaying with Y & Y Plasfun Belay Glasses. With high-transparency prisms, the Plasfun lets you see your climber without actually looking up, and the plastic construction keeps the frame light, flexible, and solid. In fact, the frame is so flexible that it can be worn over sunglasses or glasses. The Plasfun comes in an anti-shock case, and that case includes a carabiner so you can clip it to your harness.

- Q & A
If you can't beat them...
They may look silly, but holy hell do these specs make belaying a lot more comfortable. They aren't very applicable for multi-pitch scenarios, but if you're belaying a bunch at the gym or a crag, these things alleviate neck pain ten-fold. Using them can be a little funky at first, but you'll get used to it by the end of the day if you belayed enough climbers.
Clear and comfortable

Does the job and my neck is happier for it.
My only complaint is that after a few days of hanging the carrying case from my harness by the included carabiner, the loop on the case frayed and failed. There is a second velcro attachment method.

First world problems, I know, but these really help your neck when you're belaying all day long. I used to make fun of people wearing these things, then I tried them, and now I won't go back! These are a great price compared to other belay glasses on the market. Highly recommended!
Photo disclaimer: I was using a Grigri w/ a friend holding the rope before taking the photo. Safety first!
No more neck strain!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Comes with a nice protective case too!
