    Gunsmith's saving grace

    By "Coyote Cap"

    from Morristown, Minnesota

    About Me Gunsmith

    Pros

    • Over The Top Refocus

    Cons

    • Side Shield Option Needed

    Best Uses

    • Close Accurate Work

    Comments about Extreme Readers:

    As a gunsmith, clear and VERY close-up vision for accuracy when working inside a firearm is absolutely needed. Other glasses just don't do the job and thanks to Duluth Trading, my optician bill is now geatly reduced. The only down side for a gunsmith would be the need for optional side protection shields when grinding, polishing small parts and especially working on the wire wheel.

    "Fine Print" Conquered!

    By Flash

    About Me Trifocal Vision

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Comfortable
    • Lightweight
    • Power Rating Is True

    Cons

    • Tight Fit For Big Heads

    Best Uses

    • Reading The Newspaper

    Comments about Extreme Readers:

    A bit firm on the temples for a big head but comfortable nonetheless. Main advantage is in reading the newspaper: no more sore neck from tilting the head up in order to engage the bottom focal length of trifocals. I bought several for one at the desk, one at the kitchen counter and one on the nightstand. Love 'em!

                        Even though I returned this item, I would suggest it to anyone that has to do very close and detailed work. When you put them on you can feel that it is a high quality item. They fit well and and are very comfortable.

                              When sewing it helps 2 ways:: threading the needle, and with buttons finding the holes to thread.
                              Any type of fine detail work where regular reading glasses just aren't good enough.

                                I need to carry two pairs of glasses. One fo far vision and one for close up. I could never find powerful enough close up glasses until I discovered these. They are lightweight, sturdy and very clear. I have the 4X and they are the best reading glasses I have found. Well worth the price.
