I already have these glasses in a larger strength for close up work, very good quality, no shadows or weird lenses, so bought these in a lighter strength for reading. Love them, perfect for me, shipped quickly. Thanks.
The frames and the case are a delight, but the quality of the lenses themselves was substandard; HOWEVER…after emailing Speert International about my displeasure with the product and my intent to donate them to charity since they were very inexpensive. Speert unexpectedly issued me a full refund including shipping, without me even asking for one, and they were happy to have the product donated! That’s the second half of great customer service (the first half being a good product). Way to go Speert International – I’ll give you another try.
Historically readers have lasted me several years , normally being changed out only when I need to up the strength. I use them to knit, read, and eat. No roughhousing. I have gone through 2 pair of these in a year. The same thing happened to both. The plastic into which the right hinge is embedded on the temples cracked and the hinges slid out. They are very pretty and I get a lot of compliments, but ended up with little bang for the buck. If they were $5.00, I’d say go for it, but not at the price I paid ($16.95). They are made by Calabria whose products I have been using for 10 years with little trouble. These glasses, as pretty as they are, fell short.
I didn’t expect to love these, but wow! So cute! The ones I got are for close reading and I’m going to get another pair for mid-range reading. These are so nice that I really hope they stand the test of time. I switch between contacts and glasses and these are so great for my terrible close vision. I also ordered the tan color and they are equally lovely. Going back for a purple too. Yes, I’m mildly obsessed with them. :DUpdate 1/7/18 – I forgot to mention what great quality these are too. So impressed with these readers. Calabria Victoria Designer Reading Glasses in Blue ; +3.75
