Is someone really paying $89.00 for a pair of reading glasses?
I guess so or they would not present them. I get mine that are close to those for $8.00 at Dollar General.

I used to buy cheap readers until I realized how much they aged me. I happened to read an article about fashions that tend to age women, and it was confirmed. Now, I don't put any glasses on my face that I wouldn't wear in prescription lenses or sunglasses. I do have plenty of cheap readers around the house, in every room, in every conceivable location though

i would not pay that much.
i buy the joy mangano brand, the lori grenier brand, the betsey johnson brand, and the hummingbird brand and they all work well for me and come in cute patterns and colors. i have quite a few and have them everywhere.

Guilty. I do buy and use Eyebobs, even at $89. I have several issues with my eyes, have had several surgeries and I do wear readers and when driving and working I wear prescription glasses. I do have several pairs of readers at bargain prices like many of you, but I find for me the Eyebobs are a better quality. It is worth it to me because of my aforementioned eye issues. I guess we all have priorities, and my eyes are high on my list.

Even at $89.00, it is a great price if your exact prescription is one that is offered in readers. I don't know how often that happens. I never had my prescription that simple, or both of my eyes needing the same strength. It would have been great to have my ophthalmologist tell me to buy readers. What a luxury to have several pairs!

I wouldn't pay $89.00 for reading glasses. My regular eyeglasses don't cost me $89.00. I wear contacts and wear glasses so infrequently, I go to Walmart and spend under $50.00 for a pair. LOL
I cannot however wear the cheapy dollar store reading glasses. Everything is distorted, they are cheap, the lenses blur everything and they scratch really easy. They are also ugly and if I have to wear them often at work, I at least want them to look decent.

I have purchased eyebobs twice and twice returned them. The frames and lenses are excellent quality, but if you can't stand the weight of them on your face they are worthless. I think if they sold a womens eyeglass instead of unisex the weight would be less. Cheap readers are just that, cheap readers.
