Over the years I have had people to suggest "reading glasses" to me. I thought that there was no way a cheap set of over the counter (so to speak) reading glasses were going to help me, and that they surely could not work since you can get them for so little. Well, was I wrong!? I got a pair of these because they were given to me to try, and they WORKED! All of this time I could have been using things to read and not have to strain my eyes, move around to different places thinking it was the light, and just overall have improved the quality of my life and my reading experience a long time ago. GREAT product, well worth it!
