I was sent a pair of Computer Eyed Eyewear to test and review.
I had printed the reading chart, found on their website, to the exact proportions and tested my vision, without my glasses as instructed, in order to determine the strength I would need.
They arrived, a lovely, stylish pair of red readers with tasteful bling on the sides tucked inside a flashy, colour-co-ordinated case.
There are half moon bi-focals at the lower edge of the lenses, these are the readers.
I put them on and sat at my computer and could see nothing…well, I could see the box I was supposed to be writing this review in but not the words I was typing. On leaning closer, 12 inches from my screen, the text came into focus.
Now to test the half moon bi-focals. I had to get really close, 8 inches, to be able to read what was written in my book alongside me on my desk. When I sat up in the position I usually worked at the text came into view through the top part of the lenses.
I removed the Computer Eyed Eyewear and found I could see my screen and the book on my desk clearly without the eyewear.
The instructions stated that I read the test chart from a distance of 14 inches, I noticed that the distance from my eyes to the book on my desk was 24 inches…perhaps I am taller than the norm, or my chair is adjusted higher?
Unfortunately this product was of no benefit to me. Since I need glasses anyway my corrective prescription is written for computer work, reading and distance.
I feel I was at a disadvantage ordering this product online. Had I been able to try them on in person and test them at a computer I probably would have had a more satisfactory experience.
