These cases are ideal for those of us who have to wear reading glasses, or need glasses only occasionally. Just pop them in the case when you don't need them. The zippered compartment is perfect for a driver's license, credit card, and lens cloth. I've even found a slim pen that fits in it. This pouch helps me keep everything I need close at hand, around my neck. The only problem that I have found with the case is the stitching. I purchased four of them. On one of the cases, some of the strands of threads were loose, and I cut them off - don't know if that will cause more stitching to unravel. So far, so good. I use my pouch every day, and I usually wear it out after 7 or 9 months. That's why I bought four this time. I would hate to be without one! They are especially ideal for traveling!
