I owned 4 or 5 of them for just one reason: comfortable, lightweight, but break easily beyond repair, so I had to buy the next pair. I guess, I should try something more durable, there are millions out there.
These are really well made, they don't scratch or stretch out! I've dropped them on the ceramic floor and thought they would be history...guess what...not a scratch or defect! You can't kill em! My third pair of Gabriel + Simone sunglasses! Super stylish and fab!
Bought these glasses so my wife could read in low light situations. Glasses were wrong magnification for her, my fault, I guessed wrong. Other problem was that glasses were delivered with weak batteries on one side of glasses. This is a problem because each side of the glasses has at least four button batteries, expensive to replace. Glasses are nice looking for this type, seem to be good quality. Had to return.
The reading glasses are a fun tortoise shell frame with turquoise color arms. It's certainly a conversation starter and I've received many compliments on them. The one criticism I have is lens is plastic and not glass as I had expected. It magnifies the print but the plastic is difficult to keep clean causing the lens to become cloudy. I have to clean the lens frequently which is a nuisance. The glasses were inexpensive and I guess I got what I paid for. I will, undoubtedly have to purchase another pair with glass lenses costing much more money. In the future I will pay more attention to the product discription. The glasses arrived promptly and was packaged properly to avoid breakage. Overall I am very pleased with Overstocks.com and the variety and quality of the products offered.
