Too narrow
Too narrow for my melon and probably most people's. Lenses are too close together, like they're for kids. Not comfortable. I recommend getting the GLR-84 since it says the nosebridge is wider. Review by NoVA (Posted on 2/4/2018)
Excellent reading glasses
These are the best, most comfortable reading glasses I've ever owned! I've had them for a year now and still no complaints. They also make EXCELLENT Santa glasses! Thanks guys for all you do for the reenactors! Love the YouTube stuff to .....and we eat healthier too! Review by Papa Coutch (Posted on 9/12/2017)
A really good value
These eyeglass frames appear to be the standard among 18th Century living history reenactors who don't want the trouble and expense of buying originals. I see them everywhere. Inexpensive and well made, a local optometrist was able to fit then with my prescription lenses. Steel wool and lacquer thinner softened the shiny finish, and wrapping the bridge with string added comfort. These sturdy eyeglasses are a good dollar value. That said, as a flintlock shooter, I wish the lenses were a little larger to provide more protection between the pan flash and my eyes. Review by Morgan (Posted on 7/8/2017)
