Answer: 
The maximum power is +3 diopters, but that doesn't mean that they magnify 3 times. They don't really magnify at all, but they adjust the range of distances where you can see clearly. At the maximum power these glasses with let you see thing clearly at a shorter distance, so you can see small details that you couldn't otherwise. If your vision is the same in both eyes you could get the same effect using Read More
The maximum power is +3 diopters, but that doesn't mean that they magnify 3 times. They don't really magnify at all, but they adjust the range of distances where you can see clearly. At the maximum power these glasses with let you see thing clearly at a shorter distance, so you can see small details that you couldn't otherwise. If your vision is the same in both eyes you could get the same effect using cheap 'reader glasses', but these work glasses have the advantage that you can adjust differently for each eye as well as adjust for different distances.
I find these work glasses to be very helpful in the shop where I am constantly switching from very close work to long range and everything in between. It is much more convenient than using two or three pairs of prescription glasses. They have far more range than bifocals or progressive lenses, but they do not correct for the condition called astigmatism where lines at certain angles seem blurred. Read Less

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by These things are so cool! These things are super handy! Very convenient to have the ability to have glasses that allow me to see a bit closer or farther away depending on my needs are the time. Very lightweight and so far pretty durable which is great for me. Keep them stowed in my tool box for quick jobs and they have come in handy at several points in time. Essential piece of kit if you do a lot of detail work! March 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by They made my eyes hurt I followed the instructions that came with the glasses exactly and adjusted each eye individually. I was only able to adjust them to either near or far vision clarity, not both. Furthermore, after only about 3 minutes of wearing the glasses, my eyes began hurting and continued to hurt for more that 15 minutes afterward. These glasses are not intended to be used for safety purposes (they aren't nearly large enough for that) and the adjustment is not finite enough to be exact. The lenses merely tilt forward and back. I can't come up with a scenario where I would ever recommend the use of these glasses. January 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AdLens Adjustable Focus Safety Glasses This is a good idea, but poor execution. They adjust as advertised but the area of sharp focus is small at the center of the lens. Outside that small sweet spot the view is distorted, kind of like a fish eye camera. They should make the lenses larger so the focused area would be big enough to be useful. The picture shows how small the AdLens lenses are compared to a standard set of reading glasses. November 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment. Not impressed. Thought these would be good for my husband to use as work glasses where he needs reading glasses. He couldn't get them adjusted to see clearly. They don't seem very durable. The knobs to adjust the knobs are flimsy and the glasses are not really big enough to be really be work protection glasses. Good idea but for the price I expected more. They did have good instructions and are easy to adjust but neither one of us could see very well out of them. October 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New glasses. Adjustable focus. Pretty cool. I have reading glasses, and bi-focals. But as my accommodation fades, these give specific distances that "work". I'm covered for 48 inches, and 18 inches, and some others. But bending over a car fender squinting at a carb, or into the bowels of my tractor, sometimes I am at in-between distance and neither lens works right. The Adlens adjusts for a wide range of eyes and viewing distances. By turning-in the screw, you get best focus at some distance nearer than infinity. Being able to come in from the great outdoors and work at the computer, is interesting. With the Adlens, I can be far-focused well, sit, turn knobs, and be near-focused. These are for straight (spherical) focus (round blur). If you have significant astigmatism (oval blur), the "best" focus will still be blurry, and you should consult your eye-doc with a clear measurement of your working distance. Limitations: The zone (up/down side/side) of good focus is small (I'm used to big aviator lenses) and there is some spatial distortion off-center (my slanted keyboard looks flat). Not a problem for small-work. I would not want to dance or drive in these things. Stairs need special attention (bifocals will trip me up on stairs). The lenses are plastic and will scratch. They are not rated as "Safety Glasses". June 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Minor distortions throughout range and field of view. Good for brief examinations of something in a restricted area where you have to adjust focus to space available. The minor distortions throughout the field of view made them not satisfactory for extended reading time for my eyes. Others may have different results. September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Continuously adjustable I've been nearsighted my entire life. Now that I'm 72, my nearsightedness has slightly improved in one eye more than the other. I put on these glasses & following the simple directions, I covered one eye with my hand, then I adjusted the lens for the other eye, with the knob on the eye glasses frame, till I could read the words on a newspaper. I then did the same thing for the other lens. The spherical powers for these glasses range from -6.0 to +3.0D. I now use these glasses in several situations, from reading the menu in a dimly lit restaurant, to finding small parts in my shop, etc. June 9, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Physics lab, anyone? Cool concept, but lousy execution. I donated my pair to our local High School physics department for optics lessons (the teacher was tickled & thrilled -- the glasses *do* make a pretty sweet demo). It's easy to get CLOSE to your Rx by twiddling the knobs, but nearly impossible to get it **exactly**. So if you use these glasses for longer than, say, 20 minutes, you'll wind up with a raging headache. Plus, they're NOT rated as safety glasses!! What is the point of calling them "work glasses" unless they're suitable as eye protection? The only work-related use I can think of is to keep a pair in your truck as a last ditch back-up, in case you need to drive to the closest optician to get your regular pair fixed. June 3, 2015
