This is What Our Customers Are Saying-
"I'm just writing to thank you for your excellent service and for filling a gap that meets my work needs beautifully. I recently had cataract surgery and no longer need prescription glasses. I work as a proofreader, and often have to go back and forth from paper to computer screen, so I was delighted to find a company that made bifocal computer readers. They were exactly what I needed after several weeks of constantly swapping two strengths of glasses. Also thanks for working with me to customize the computer strength. The New Fogey DC115 frames are very close to the style of frame I had previously worn, are quite well made and fit perfectly without any adjustment." - Peter C., New York
"These are great quality eye glasses and I love how you can choose the lens power for each eye. I searched the internet for a while and this is the only company I found that did that. I highly recommend these glasses and the company. Shipping was fast and free too!" - Leah
"Steve offers wonderful service and quality, along with very reasonable prices. I have been dealing with him for several years and he always exceeds expectations. I started out by ordering one pair of inexpensive folding readers. Many pairs and years later, I continued to be impressed. I probably should have toned this review down, as it may appear I am Steve's long lost unemployed cousin, looking for a marketing job. If you discount this review as not authentic, it is your loss!" -
"For those of you who know how bad the readers are you get at the pharmacy and big box stores, you simply have to try glasses from this company. Yup, they'll cost you a bit more, but the clarity and lack of distortion of the lenses is simply outstanding and heads and tails above anything you'll get in a store. I always get the mojo blue block ar and use them primarily for computer work. Great glasses and the company provides great service."
"Mojo BluBlock AR - This coating really does a fabulous job of anti-reflective, reduce glare, improves contrast. My last pair have this coating and still going strong - ie. seems durable. Scratch resistance and easy clean is also very evident. Not really sure if $25 is a fair price - however, when you add this coating to glasses costing $25 to $50 it has a huge impact on overall price and therefore a bit of a deterrent.
That said - I can no longer abide glasses with out this coating - go with the mojo!" - Anon.
[Editor: Mojo BluBlock AR was reduced in price to $15.00 several years ago. All 4 of our blue block AR coatings are vastly less in cost than whay you would pay in stores!]
"I didn't know what I was missing! I have used regular off the shelf reading glasses for working on the computer but my eyes were always tired afterwards. I also work under florescent lights. Wow! What a difference these computer glasses made. I am very pleases with the results. I will have to buy a few more pairs!" - Malinda P.
" I just wanted to write and tell you how much I love my new reading glasses I ordered from you.I had lasik surgery on my right eye about 10 years for distance and I sleep in an ortho-K contact on my left eye to see close up daily.
I can see perfectly far away and for reading...however, my challenge was looking at my computer screen 8 hours/day. That 2 foot range never comes in clearly and regular reading glasses with the same strength in each eye didn't work for me and was driving me nuts. When I read the instructions on your website on how to figure out the strength needed for computer it was like a lightbulb moment. So I ordered glasses with a different strength for each eye and got the blue block w/ tint. The tint and strength in each eye is perfect. It was so amazing I just had to thank you. I may have to order some more and I will definitely be telling all my friends.Thanks so much!" - Delann S.
"The most recent pair I got from you guys I added the Mojo Blue Blocker AR coating - what a difference - having had cataract surgery with multifocal lenses I can read fine and see distance. But when I work on my large computer screen at home it's about 2.5 - 3 feet away which is my dead spot. The first pair (once I got the power straight) caused some fatigue and strain, but when I got the last pair with the coating, wow! I can sit all day in front of the screen without any problems. Great glasses. Thanks!!" -Alan B.
"Dear Steve, I was so pleasantly surprised that you returned my phone message so promptly on Saturday and accommodated the change in my order. The glasses just arrived and I am so pleased! Thank you for the excellent service.
Since I had PRK, I’ve been frustrated with ‘ordinary’ reading glasses from the drugstore since my eyes now need different powers for reading (which is almost invariably the case for Lasik/PRK patients) and computer work has becoming challenging. There were very few online offerings for dual power glasses, and your website was by far the clearest, user-friendliest and most informative of the few out there. Your selection also was superior in terms of price range and variety. I will definitely be ordering again in the future – I find it useful to have several pairs of reading glasses around the house. These two I ordered are my first ‘test’ pairs. Thankfully you have affordable options.
I will also definitely tell everyone I know who may need reading glasses about your website, and in fact I made a note to myself to tell my eye doctor when I go for my 3 month post-op appointment in September (I’ll bring your letter so I can leave something with your brand/web address). I’m sure his patients will be happy to have an easy, affordable source for dual-power reading and computer glasses (rather than spending hundreds of dollars to have a custom prescription filled at an eyeglass store). I know I was very happy to find you!
Many thanks from a happy customer." - Luisa
"Much higher quality than drug store glasses at a fair price. Great selection. Super fast shipping.
They actually listed a phone number that I didn't have to press one for English! I did not get trapped in a robo call! I left a message and Steve called me back and I actually spoke to a very helpful HUMAN BEING !!!!! Steve knew his business and advised me well.
Thanks Steve, I will be a regular customer." - John U. Fort Worth TX
"I am a pharmacy readers person who used to buy Scojo glasses before their quality got bad.
These glasses are amazing. I purchased the Amber lenses in 2.0.
The quality is superb and they save my eyes when I'm on my iPad at night or on the computer during the day.
The case has a bright orange cover, so it's easy to find and it's a hard case. 100% quality across the board: case, frames, lenses.
Best thing about my purchase though? The lovely note about the company that accompanied the glasses. Steve and Rhonda, you are an amazing couple and you sell really good quality glasses.
All the VERY best to you both! You definitely have a new customer and devotee!" - Antonia G.
I'm so happy I found these guys. They're the only company I've found that offers exactly what I was looking for, i.e. lighter tinting than sunglasses. In addition, I was very surprised to find that they come in so many colors and depths. The icing on the cake is that they give you the ability to have different levels of correction in each of the two lenses.
In summary, I would give these glasses 100 stars if I could." - Charlie
"Hi Steve and Rhonda,
I found your website from a Google search for computer reading glasses. I placed the small order because your prices seemed high; relative to other online retailer sites. Once the order arrived, I clearly understood why the price delta. This is a professional (if that is the correct word) pair of reading glasses. They are sturdy and will likely last a very long time. I’m accustomed to ordering 2-3 pairs of the flimsy glasses at a little over one-half your listed price. Those other reading glasses do not hold up well; often damaged while in a shirt pocket. When I do the math, one pair of your ultra-high-quality glasses are a much better value.
I believe that the (unexpected) hard case that came with the reading glasses costs more than the reading glasses found on the end cap displays in the big box stores. That is extra protection when carrying the glasses in a computer bag, as I do one day per week. Again, more value to the customer.
I have never (and I mean never) had a reading glasses order protected so well, packed so carefully, and sent in a sturdier box than you provided. I’ve received damaged orders inside padded envelopes. Returns are a time-consuming pain and not worth the time and expense. I simply wrote those orders off as lessons learned the hard (and expensive) way.
Finally, the value-add of a Crystal Cleaner and lens cloth was unexpected. It costs more to include and ship these extras. But, these nice touch items don’t come from Amazon.com! This stuff shows that a small business with good people can compete. After this experience, why would I buy reading glasses from anyone else? I may not be the smartest consumer on the planet. But, I can figure that out with ease.
The cliché “You get what you pay for.” certainly applies to Reading Glasses Etc.com! When looking at the total value of one order from you, I am already ahead of the game. I wish you all the best."
Thank you, - Ken W.
"I was looking for some spare glasses and I am glad I purchased from you. The frame construction and optical quality are outstanding and better than my $250 prescription glasses. I even bought another pair! Reading Glasses Etc.com fast shipping and outstanding support are icing on the cake. Highly recommended. - Anon. 5 Stars
"Greetings...I don't often give customer feedback, usually only if my experience was particularly positive or negative. So I'm writing to you to let you know how my customer experience has been with Reading Glasses Etc. As a new customer, I have just been completely impressed with every aspect of my purchase, from finding your website after googling "custom reading glasses" to the "look and feel" of your website and its user friendliness, the transaction process, how quickly I received my order, product packaging, and the quality of the glasses... everything was just OUTSTANDING!! You have earned a continuing customer in me and I will happily refer my family and friends to you." Sincerely, Adrienne
I highly recommend their glasses and service." 5 Stars - Shannon
"Your website is very cool! I almost want to take it a step further and say groovy, but then that might reveal my age! I'll shop here again and will definitely tell my co-workers." -
"So I was delighted to find I could find the right magnification at Reading Glasses Ect! I love the color and the quality is far superior to even the pricey pharmacy frames. Over all I am very pleased with the product, customer service, and the delivery. The best part of all is finally being able to read pill bottles and ingredients labels!! Yay Reading Glasses Ect, for saving me from the high prices at the optomatrist! 5 Stars" - Ashleigh
"I want to tell you that I LOVE the glasses I got from you and I get compliments on them everywhere--and that means in India, South Africa, Oman, Australia.... wherever I go. They are the BEST. Thanks so much." - Edith
"My readers just arrived and they are exactly what I was hoping for. Finally I have a great pair of reading glasses that I will take care of. The glasses arrived perfectly aligned, despite shipping jostles and my quite possibly nonstandard head shape. The supplied case and cleaning fluid and cloth indicate the care taken by the owners!" - Hugh
"I'm very happy I discovered this site...My new readers are beautiful! Free shipping was an unexpected bonus, and even with that, I expected my glasses to take at least a week to arrive---not two business days (as they did.) Excellent quality, price, service, and shipping; I will definitely be buying all my readers from here from now on!" - Erica S.
"I got my new reading glasses today and boy am I a happy guy! If only I hadn’t spent a half-million dollars on other pairs for other places that are hiding in the desk drawers because I’m just not satisfied with them." - Michael S.
"I am a 100% full time, life long cheaters user. I've bought everything from cheap, cheap, cheap, to high end expensive exclusive reading glasses. After a while a person gets to know exactly what works and what doesn't. The most expensive is not that much better than the mid prices glasses. This company doesn't sell junk and their service is top notch. There is quality in the frames, lenses as well as cleaning products which come with every pair. Don't hesitate to order from this well run little company." - Julie
"Just a big thank you. Not only is your website fun, but our first order got here quickly and the quality is great. Thanks!" - Lisa H. California
"My optician told me that the only way I could get a pair of readers with a different power in each eye was to get prescription glasses. I bought my readers from you and saved about $300.00! You ROCK!!" - Elana B. Texas, USA
"I had my doubts because I couldnt try them on, but the style I chose was so close to what I saw in a store that I went for it. I just use them for computer and didnt get them with the ar but I will next time!" - Guest
"My husband bought me a pair of readers from your site for my birthday. I love them!" - Sarah N. New York,NY
"What a great range of very good quality half frames! I am really pleased with all my pairs. Keep up the good work!" - Bill L. N.Z.
"Thank you for the great service. Love the sense of humor on the site too." - D.F.
"Just wanted to say thank you for not only an entertaining shopping site, but for such quality products. We always need readers in our house because they either take a vacation without notice, or get dropped by someone (not me). And it is hard to find quality lenses for such a deal along with really quick shipping." - LH
"I just received my third pair of prescription readers. Whether you need prescription readers or just regular ones, you wont be sorry buying from Steve and Rhonda! Great products and great service!" - Jim K. Athens, GA
"Cool site!" - Diane S., S.C.
"I bought my regular glasses from Lens Crafters with my insurance plan and it cost me over $150.00! I needed readers for computer over my contacts and got them for $89.00 with the ar! I like these better!" - Scott N, Portland, OR
"My friends were making fun of me because I was squinting using my new phone. As a goof they started seaching for readers and found the 12 step program on your site. LOL funny!!!! I bought a pair of tinted readers and love them! 2 of my friends have bought too." - Geoffrey K, San Fransisco, CA
"My sister and I pitched in to get our dad a good pair of reading glasses for fathers day. He loves them! He is 84 years old and not real clear anymore. It was a touching to see him light up. Thanks!" - Cassie and Stephanie G., TX
“I can’t say enough GREAT things about the glasses and service from ReadingGlassesEtc.com! Their reading glasses are incomparable to any – bar none! They have glasses for EVERYONE! If you want cute or funky reading glasses, they have ‘em. If you want basic or lightweight or anti-reflective glasses for heavy computer use, they have ‘em. Also, their friendly, helpful, caring service is a rarity nowadays. ReadingGlassesEtc.com treat you like a person, and NOT a number! I love my designer frames. I am a teacher and just love the cute, funky styles! Thanks so much, ReadingGlassesEtc.com!” - Carol H.
"Received the glasses and just want to say I am very pleased with the quality and style. I have tried several other sites before and this one is the best!" - Richard H., CA
"I recently had cataract surgery in one eye. My distance vision and reading correction in both eyes are pretty much the same, but, I have my computer screen about 3' away from my eyes and the transition from reading to distance is not the same for both eyes. I ordered glasses with 1.25 for one and 2.50 for the other and now I can read the screen with either eye!" - Guest 4 Stars!
"EXCELLENT Glasses and Company! The reading glasses sold by this company are EXCELLENT! They are some of the BEST quality glasses I have ever purchased, bar none! If you read, use the computer EXCESSIVELY daily, these are the glasses for you! Ladies, be sure to check the "size" of the frames because, like me, if you have a smaller framed face you will need the smaller sized frames.
I am a teacher and needed some fairly good quality reading glasses (check out the "anti-reflective" ones!). I also wanted some cute frames to wear around the K-5 students I teach. I found them here! You will LOVE the cute styles and MANY choices! Additionally, this company is VERY GOOD to deal with. They treat you with respect and fairness. Not to mention you actually get to speak with a "person" and not a machine if you need to call or email them.
I give them 5 stars ACROSS THE BOARD!" - Carol H. 5 Stars
"Fantastic-Service, Products & Vision! If you have reading glasses on right now, take turns covering each eye and see if you are seeing clearly out of both eyes! I was not. One eye great the other a blur!! Now I see clearly out of both eyes because the lenses are correct for each eye!! The lens quality is great and the frames are super!! I had mine in 4 days!!" - Will S. 5 Stars
"I Love These Glasses and This Company!!! The glasses are beautiful...just perfect. I received them in less than 1 week and they were a special order. I wanted them in black and Steve was very helpful and prompt. In fact, I just ordered another pair in a different style. Keep up the good work." - Guest 5 Stars
"Durable, comfortable, attractive... These glasses are truly prescription-grade at a fraction of the cost. The frames are durable, despite being half frames. The secret is strong, tough nylon monofilament (think fishing line) that runs invisibly from the frames down around the bottom of the lenses in a recessed groove. If you manage to pop a lens (I've done it a couple of times, with excessive twisting) you can put it back in yourself, with a bit of practice.
I have finally fatigued my first set of frames. They are very durable, but I insist on taking them off and putting them into a pocket, so they get flattened, and eventually the rebending of them will fatigue the welds at the nosepiece. If I'd use a hardcase, then they would last virtually forever.
The lenses are amazingly scratch proof. Drugstore readingglasses scratch the day I start using them, and are pretty well worn out in a couple weeks. Having coated lenses which don't scratch unless truly abused is wonderful. As I start on my next pair, if a scratch a lens before I wear out the frames, I will be able to replace it with one of the current lenses, as even after several months of rough use they are still unscathed.
Great company, great product." - C.T. 5 Stars
"Soothes tired and red eyes! I purchased these readers in 15% tint to wear for work. Fluorescent lighting and dry air (I am a Flight Attendant) make my eyes tired and red and these glasses have just enough tint to soothe the glare and cover up my red eyes. Many thanks for your product!" - Denise, Boston Mass. 5 Stars
"Excellent." - Ed L. 5 Stars
"In the past two weeks I have bought two pairs and am in love with both!! From order to delivery supper fast. Great quality, I would recommend this site to everyone and give them 5 STARS...Thanks!" - G.B.
"I wear reading glasses all the time. My eye doctor and I could not agree on strength of the lenses. My vision kept changing, within a window of a few minutes, and the doctor could not figure out why. Frustrated, I went to the store and bought pre-made readers to try out. The readers I was buying had cheap plastic, thick spherical lenses that scratched easily and there was not a good choice of frame styles. One private optician agreed to make the power I wanted for me and after spending 300$ and more I managed to get my hands on decent glasses.
Glasses from readingglassesetc.com :
The first time I came to your website and found that you are making readers with Poly Lenses that are aspheric and with AR coating option, I was thought "Yeah sure , like I've never heard that before". But there was option to return them for full refund, minus shipping, so I thought I give it a try. I was amazed at the whole experience.
1. The glasses were on my nose within 3 days .
2. The glasses are not cheaply made like the ones bought in the store. They feel sturdy, they have soft nose pads unlike store bought glasses with plastic nose pad that keep sliding down on slightest sweating and are built in without possibility of replacement.
3. I did not have to do ANY adjustments at all. I just took them out of the box and put them on and I was good to go.
In my personal opinion , your website is God sent. Since I wear reading glasses all the time, these glasses are everything for me . +3.50 are not available in stores. Just some websites where they make them very cheap with expensive frames. Your website is pretty good and looking better every time I visit . In my opinion, the products are all very affordable. I would not mind even if you charged for shipping! The first time I contacted you I got a response in less than 1 hour , and I thought you were having slow day . After contacting you several more times and getting just as fast responses, I realized that you are very prompt to get back to customers."
