My husband first purchased these, but having a larger head, they were too small for him. Lucky me! I took them to the local optometrist who fitted them with lined bifocals. I etched the glass and they are a close resemblance to Dr. Franklin's originals. I wear them as a sergeant's wife who luckily was gifted with them by an officer who's wife had hired me to nurse her before her death.
I've been wearing them for 10 years, 2-3 weekends a month during the 1812 season in Canada and they only show a slight amount of wear.

Plus my wife thinks I look hysterically cross eyed in these and that was worth the price by itself.

When I needed to start wearing Reading Glasses [...Time catches us all ...] I bought the plain lens glasses to have my prescription fitted to.
These have survived better than the initial modern set I was 'given' by the optometrist.
These Period Glasses spend almost all of my waking hours either on my nose or around my neck.
Best of all - the Period Sunglasses I have fit over these Reading Glasses, so I can use them outside to do close-up work.
..... They are also great conversation starters.
