- great glasses
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. (Posted on 3/18/2018)

- Everyday wear .... really.
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. (Posted on 9/25/2017)
