Around 14 such reading glasses were tested in the survey from seven high street stores and the optometrist revealed that more than half of the glasses had some problems which could cause a number of effects in the wearer such as headaches, double vision or blurred vision.

"Off-the-peg glasses could cause eye strain, blurred vision, headaches or double vision. For people with higher prescriptions, they're not suitable for walking or other mobile activities. They could even 'cause a nasty accident. This could cause eye problems or a head tilt", the optometrist told the Daily Mail.

Yes what a difference it made when I bought good reading glasses. Great fashion forward line I found was Scojo New York. I got a great deal on these at www.closeoutreaders.com These are great upper end reading glasses that are optical quality lenses.
