I Didn't Expect These To Work Well - I Was WrongI've been using reading glasses for years and have dealt with the never ending problem of putting them on to read, taking them off to see everything else, putting them back on to read, leaning in closer to see the computer, leaning back out again, lather, rinse, repeat. My eye doctor recommended progressive lenses for me so that I could have one prescription to read up close, a separate prescription to see the computer, and the upper prescription being no prescription at all so that I could see distance. I was reluctant to get prescription progressive lenses because they would have cost me between $500 - $700 dollars. For that amount of money I decided I could live with putting on and taking off drugstore reading glasses.Then I saw an advertisement for the Foster Grant Multifocus glasses. Quite frankly, I didn't have very high expectations for these lenses at all. I mean, how could Foster Grant offer a good, workable progressive lens for $35 when they cost several hundred dollars from an optician? However, this is Amazon so I figured if these were worthless I could always return them. Well, here's the deal. I've had them for nearly a week now and there is no way at all that I will be returning these. I love them!Years ago I wore prescription progressive lenses and could never get used to them. Come to find out they make them much better now and they eliminated some of the problems the early progressives had. Foster Grant has incorporated the lens improvements. That said, there is a learning curve in using progressive lenses whether they are prescription lenses or over the counter (OTC) lenses. Progressive lenses (prescription or OTC) offer poor peripheral vision. The field of vision is pretty much straight ahead. You need to turn your head to look directly at whatever it is you want to see in order to have the clearest view. Once you know that about progressive lenses, it's not hard to adjust to accommodate that.I'm thrilled that these Foster Grant Multifocus glasses work so well for me and even happier that I saved several hundred dollars by not having to order prescription lenses and frames when these work just as well. I'll be ordering a second pair to have as a spare set.5Multifocus FGs are the ONLY kinds of reading glasses I will ever buy again! (& CHARLSIE is my favorite among them by far)I am a professor, so I read constantly, and am often in front of a computer. I love the progressive nature of my (custom, crazy expensive) regular progressive glasses, because I hate taking reading glasses on and off. But prefer to wear contact lenses for most of the day for sports & aesthetic reasons. What to do?Well, I went out searching high and low for off-the-shelf progressive reading glasses, so that I could economically switch between reading, using the computer, and walking around, without experiencing blurriness. I found exactly one brand of glasses that did it for anything resembling a reasonable price: Foster Grant "Multifocus" glasses.The concept of off-the-shelf progressive reading glasses is genius. For the life of me, I do not understand why Foster Grant seems to be the only company making them. They are a little pricey relative to regular cheapo reading glasses. But because I lose them less often because I am popping them on and off in fewer situations -- not to mention the added benefit that I can see more clearly in more situations -- they are absolutely worth every penny of the difference.STYLE re the CHARLSIE design in particular: numerous female friends and a couple of male friends have tried these on, and the Charlsie looked strangely great on nearly everyone. That was not the case for some of the other options I tried of this line; the Charsie just somehow blends into faces unusually well. Plus, most of the other designs in this line are made out of a thick plastic, which I find can interfere a bit with peripheral vision, or at least be a bit distracting. I can see these at the edges, but not nearly as obviously as the others. While it would be nice if FG had an even wider array of choices, I really doubt I could ever do better for myself personally than the look of the Charlsie's in particular.WHAT WOULD MAKE THEM (EVEN) BETTER:- They could be (even) better if the upper region was fully uncorrected, rather still having some reading correction in them, because I would prefer to not have to take them off for crystal clear vision at all.- It would be extra great if they could add blue light blocking for night time screen time, like some of the other Foster Grant glasses have (I would happily pay extra for that!)- I have a very large head (as in, can almost never buy a hat off the rack big). In my perfect world, the Charlsie model would be a tad bigger for me...but, then again, that probably means that the current sizing will work for other people better. It is fairly low stakes anyway, as the ear pieces are hinged and adjustable, so these will fit a wide range of head sizes well enough.But, regardless, these glasses are NEARLY PERFECT, and are are SO MUCH SMARTER than virtually every other pair of reading glasses on the market that I am thrilled to have these as is.P.S. Despite my rather extreme enthusiasm for these, I should note that I have not been provided with products or anything else for this review. I just really appreciate smart design and like to see companies that make smart, user-friendly choices benefit from user-friendly design choices. And this is a very smart concept at every level.5Multi-focus, Yes; Multi-use, NoI purchased the 1.0 and 1.5 magnifications. With my job, I use 3 computer screens which requires me to move my eyes and head around a bunch. I found especially with the 1.5 pair that there was only a small window, looking straight forward, where the vision was clear. Look to the left or right and the lenses distorted the vision. I also found with both pairs that the least amount of magnification at the top was still too much. I was hoping that if someone walked into my office, I'd be able to leave the glasses on and look through the top, without looking over the rim, but that was not the case. The quality seemed fine, Foster Grant is my favorite brand for readers, but these glasses did not serve my intended purpose. I think they'd be fine for reading or any other activity where my head and eyes did not need to move very far.2Stylish, truly multi focus, and comfortableLove these new Foster Grant Multifocus Glasses! After seeing these advertised on television, I decided to give them a try and they are wonderful!I am new to having to wear reading glasses - everyone jokes how it's a birthday gift around 50 years old yet it's no gift. While some of the glasses can be stylish, I find them to be annoying and uncomfortable. Annoying to take on and off and then have to carry them for the few minutes that I'll need them again - maybe just to read a menu. Uncomfortable because I don't need them most of the time so I end up putting them on my head and then they are just an uncomfortable headband. Well, these are different!!!Foster Grant Multifocus are a different kind of reading glass.1. They are stylish. To be honest, I ordered 4 different style in order to choose which ones to buy for my husband and myself. I chose the Conan style and he chose the Sawyer style. All were stylish just each a bit different. The Charlsie is an oval, metal frame. It was between the Conan and the Charlsie for me - both looked great. The Charlsie is a bit narrower on my face which was nice yet the Conan was a bit more funky stylish.2. They are honestly multi focus so I don't need to take them on and off. For me the best part of this is to be able to type on my laptop, turn my head to read a piece of fine print on paper and then return to the computer screen to type. Ahhh! No more taking my glasses on and off again and again. I probably won't walk around in them yet that brings me to the next point.3. They are comfortable. While the multifocus says that you can leave them on to be able to look straight ahead for distance, I didn't find this the most comfortable - while not blurry, it was just a bit straining. So...I put them up on my head. Wow! Foster Grant has wonderful spring arms so they are a very comfortable head band! yeah!While not the least expensive, I am very very happy with our new Foster Grant Multifocus glasses and will be buying more!I appreciate other purchasers' reviews and that is why I choose to write them now. Amazon reviews help me choose which products to buy. I sort product choices by Average Customer Review to help decide which item to choose. I didn't find a lot of reviews for Foster Grant Multifocus as they are quite new. I have found customer reviews to be very helpful and hope that I am paying it forward by providing this review. Thank you to Foster Grant for making this nice product and to Amazon for selling it and shipping it so quickly. I love Amazon!5Great Alternative to buying prescription bifocal reading glassesI've purchased several pair of these over the past few months and have them stashed in home, office, and car. I only need readers and like that I can keep them on for hours, even while walking around and looking in the distance. The $35 price is so much less than prescription eyewear that for me, would serve the same purpose.If you buy prescription readers or are tired of putting on and taking off your readers all day, you owe it to yourself to try these no line bifocals.5Great concept but very disappointing results due to lack of quality controlThe concept of these glasses is fine. Had they been more carefully assembled, this review might be different. The first time I put them on, they felt odd in terms of position on my face. I tried them over several days and the odd feeling never went away. I checked them in the mirror and they were crooked! I carefully tried to adjust them as you would do any pair of metal frame glasses and could never adjust the crookedness out of their position on my face. Come to find out, the parts that hold the nosepads to the frame are incorrectly positioned, where one is noticeably higher than the other. Without breaking a nosepad holder off the frame and attempting to do some creative metal work to reposition it on the frame, there is no possible way to position these frames on the face. All of this troubleshooting and frustration, which often left the frames unused on my desk for days at a time, ate up the return window for the glasses. I'm now stuck with an unusable pair. Since they are multi focus, if they don't sit properly, they are awkward to use. Word of warning to anyone that does attempt to buy these. If you don't think they fit right, send them back right away. Don't make the mistake I did and think you can fix it. Foster Grant won't even do warranty work on anything not purchased from their website, so don't expect any support to address their lack of quality control. Very disappointed here.1Focus blurry and very narrow.When I got these glasses, I immediately sat down at my computer to see how they work. Sadly, everything was slightly out of focus. What I noticed is that the focus is sharper directly in front of my nose (12 o'clock), but if I glance to 11 o'clock or 1 o'clock, the distortion is worse. I put on a pair of my old "Revolutionary Readers" (that's what they are called now, used to be called "Beyond Vision"), and the focus is much clearer, and it doesn't matter if I look to the left or right. It remains the same. With the Foster Grant glasses, when I look at a calendar on the wall about 5 feet away, it's a total blur, in fact I see it better without glasses. With the "RR's" it's clearer than without glasses.Revolutionary Readers are getting harder and harder to find in my size and with the correction I need, which is the reason I tried these Foster Grants, even though they are more expensive.I need multi-focus glasses like this for computer work and also for playing duplicate bridge, where players lay their cards down directly in front of themselves, so I need to be able to see the cards in my hand 12-15" from my face, to the left and right, and also across the table with out having to turn my head all the time. These Foster Grants would never work for this even if they weren't so blurry.That said, the quality of the materials seems to be very good, and they are very light. But if they don't work, that doesn't matter. I'd also like to say that I have expensive Varilux lenses that are good for seeing the speedometer on the dash, and that's about all. Actually they're dangerous for me to rely on in while driving, as I've had a couple of occasions where I tilted my head to the right and down slightly and suddenly had total double vision, that lasted for about 20 minute. Thought I was having a stroke. Luckily I was able to get off the road without an accident.Since my distance vision is pretty good, while driving I just use regular sunglasses with very good optics that I can get for about $10.1Nice shape, good fitGood shape for small face, but be careful adjusting. It hasn t broken, but isn t as durable as the Conan frames. They are much more form fitting for my face than the Conan frames, but I like both. These are slightly shorter in the stems so not as easy to place on top of your head, but still doable! I love the multi focus for work so I am not constantly taking on and off. Great for working on computer and desk! Wish there were more styles out there for multi-focus users!5Pretty good so far.Updated Again (5 stars) - thank you for the easy exchange. the first pair had a defect. New ones look fine. These are still not what I had hoped (the top part being pure glass). There is some kind of magnification in the top as well as the middle and bottom. The middle and bottom seem to be 1.5 (what I ordered). The top is just blurry for me, so I don't think wearing them around is going to be possible. They work pretty well for computer and paperwork on my desk. So if I commit to them while I'm working, they are comfortable and seem to be great. However, cheap 1.5s do the same thing. These aren't any better. But, I give them 5 stars for looking good and being a good company for easy and fast delivery and returns. I like this company. I was just hoping to not have to put on and take off readers all day long.Updated: (2 stars) Just noticed one lens is outside of the frame in one corner. I'll need to return them. I would try to pop it back in, but I'm afraid of breaking the glass. Until I noticed this, I'd been trying to get used to them. They seemed to be ok for computer or reading on my desk, but walking around with them on wasn't going to work. Even when I looked out of the top of the glasses, there was distortion. Maybe with time I'd get used to it.Previous (4 stars)The top portion definitely is not just clear glass. However, so far (1 day in) it seems like the slight distortion on the top part isn't enough for me to send them back. I'm testing them by looking at things far away through the top portion and then using the glasses, and it's definitely not as clear. Reading (1.5) and looking at the computer are improved with the glasses. I'm just hoping that I can wear them all the time and that the top part being weird isn't enough to make it so that they are just reading glass (which I have a dozen of). Also, nose pieces need a lot of tweaking. I still haven't gotten them perfectly straight. So far, they are good. They look nice and the bottom and middle seem great. If I start lowering them to the tip of my nose to talk to people, then I might as well have reading glasses. I will edit the review to 5 stars if I get used to the top.5As good or better than expensive prescriptionsAs good as any $400 prescription progressive lens, if you know what your reading glass magnification is, save yourself some big bucks, and buy this product online. I have friends who got theirs through prescription. They have tried on my glasses and found them to be as good or better than their prescription lens.I only wish they made a progressive lens in sports sunglasses, like Maui Jim's. I really don't want to spend 100's of dollars on prescriptions if I an avoid it, but progressive lenses are the best for me (not bifocals).5
