When your eyes require reading materials to be held further away to focus or more light to see clearly, it is time to purchase reading glasses. Other indicators may be blurred vision at normal distance reading, headaches or tired eyes after working. Magnifeye reading glasses provide superb optical clarity and help reduce eye strain. This reader and case combo is a great value, offering high quality for a low price.
I loved these reading glasses. I think I’ve gone through at least five pairs. Why? Because they all fell apart. The tiny screws come loose, some within a week of wearing. I’ve saved parts of broken ones to try to revive a pair.

Durable, inexpensive and functional, Magnifeye are my go to glasses when doing DIY projects. Very good optics and easy arm open-close for such inexpensive glasses. Just purchased three more today. Wanted more but others had bent nose pad supports. Not a big deal, bend them often and readjust, just can't justify purchasing damaged items. For the cost, these are well worth having handy, leaving where frequently working. They seem very scratch resist, cleaning with shirt tail or paper towels doesn't seem to bother these lightweight flexible narrow magnifying glasses. Nose pads have performed flawless. Rubber sleeve on arms offers grip enough to keep in place when bending and leaning. Two of the many, easily over a dozen pair, have failed. Nut fell off a screw, easily fixed by swapping parts from very worn, old less magnifying glasses. Actually am wearing a pair doing this review as they were handy, dangling from fly fishing line fashioned into a holder. Inexpensive, great optical clarity and rugged enough. Lightweight and yes, not perfect, reflection issues, but they perform well for the variety of work and abuse. Every pair has exceeded my expectations. They're less than five bucks!!! Highly satisfied and recommend these glasses.

The arm screws loosened within the first week of normal use and the glasses fell to the floor, causing the bridge to break.

Not durable... Within the first few days of use, the bolts loosened, allowing the arm to detach and the glasses to fall from my face and on to the floor, breaking the bridge.
Lens scratched easily in shirt, breast pocket of scrubs... nothing else in the pocket, but the lenses got so may tiny scratches it made it difficult to see clearly through them.

I have a lot of reading glasses. One set in every room in the house. In the garage and my outdoor workshop. I got these to keep in my backpack that I use whenever out of town on a bus driving job. Every part of these (except the lenses) is flexible, making it difficult, if not impossible, to damage it. Nevertheless I keep it in a hard case (not included) to protect it. The four connections of teh frame to the lenses is quite unique. It features a tiny carriage bolt and nut, instead of teh more typical screw into threaded part. So you will need a tiny wrench or pliers of some sort to tighten, in addition to the tiny screwdriver required to tighten the temple swivel pivot.

First to explain - these are NOT to be mistaken as reading glasses! These glasses are designed to enhance your vision so that you can see see an object you are working on that requires a closer field of vision.
The glasses are well made of heavy metal that will prevent warping. The stems have rubber guards around them and the stems are curved to ensure the glasses hug to your head while bending over.
The glasses really helped in magnifying, electrical type work. 3X does not sound a lot but if the item/field your looking at is 1/4 inch big, thru the glasses it will look 3/4 of an inch big.
The lenses are made of scratch resistant polycarbonant plastic.

I am very impressed with these sport gray 3.0 magnification reading glasses. The frame's temples, hinges, nose pads, pad arms, and bridge parts appear to be well made and should last a long time. The temple arms are flexible which I found to be a real plus in allowing the glasses to fit comfortably along the sides of my head. The lens also appear to be well made and should survive a fall if I should accidently dropped them. See attached photographs.

Pleasantly surprised at optical quality and durability. Have since purchased three more with greater magnification. Each has been very good. Even held up well after being unprotected in pockets. Flexible arms with sticky outer sleeve near ears keep glasses in place well while working- the best feature! Very reasonable cost for good quality optics and durable frames. Recommend highly.

These Sport Gray 1.5 Magnification Reading Glasses by Magnifeye are exactly as described in appearance, functionality, purpose, and quality. The frames are flexible soft plastic making them light and comfortable. I keep varying degree of readers in the house for one reason or another and the 1.5X magnification seems to be spot on. I would recommend it to a friend.

Functional 2.00 readers. Frameless, flexible, but bulky hardware
The MagnifEye 2.00 Reading glasses are perfectly fine readers, but with some features and flaws.
They're a "frameless" design, meaning the lenses support the nose- and earpieces. So the lenses are pretty thick. And the screws that hold the bridge and earpieces to the lenses are also large, and their clear plastic covers make them seem even larger. (see pics) All together it makes for a slightly bulky look, though this doesn't interfere with their functionality.
The earpieces are very flexible. This should help if you're hard on your glasses, as it seems they'll take a lot of abuse. However if you tend to use one hand to put your glasses on it can be tricky, as the side you're not holding tends to flex out of the way, instead of sliding over your ear. Two-handed is no problem.
