Description (by Rebecca)

These lenses are a help for people who use moisture chamber glasses, who don't need distance glasses but do need readers. It's a cost-effective alternative to having to buy either bifocal or progressive lenses for their moisture chamber glasses or having to have a whole separate pair for reading. 

I always had a lot of positive feedback about these lenses. Once in awhile someone will have a hard time keeping them on and the problems are usually with the glasses with the deepest curvature, but we will refund them if they won't stay on for you. Keep in mind, though, you can trim them down to size so that you have a smaller part that can be placed on the flattest part of your lenses.

See Usage and Care (below) for instructions and manufacturer video.
