These readers are so beautiful. They're my second pair; I wouldn't be without them! My first pair came from a local shop--I ordered my second pair on-line. What a wonderful surprise when I opened the box. The beautifully wrapped package made me feel so special--it was like receiving a precious gift.
You can bet I'll be ordering from Brighton on-line from now on.
Love my glasses!

My favorite readers were accidentally stepped on and totally crushed! I was so happy to find that the store still had them in stock. The glasses are so comfortable to wear and very well made. The sales staff in the store were very helpful as always!

Ordered 2.5 readers - they came in with 1.5 on the lenses and the tag indicated 2.5 - However, when receiving the newly shipped pair the same thing happened again. The readers had 1.5 on the lenses and 2.5 on the tag. Brighton needs to re-inventory their stock and check for accuracy of strength.
The Best Reading Glasses

These are good-fitting, attractive, and provide clear, non-wavy vision. My last pair of Brighton's lasted through 5-years of continuous uninterrupted usage ... only pair I had ... hung around my neck. After wasting my money on multiple other brands, I realized that Brighton is the only brand with clear, non-wavy lenses. The wavy lenses make me nauseated and give me a headache. I'm glad to be back in Brighton's.
Love my new Readers!

I have a few of these and had lost one pair. Ordered these to replace them. When I went online to order I wanted the Hemingway model but the 2.5 strength was not available online. Soon after I was in the Vegas airport and they actually had them there. I will now send this pair to my doctor to have my prescription lenses put in. Always get compliments.

I believe these are the third pair of Shakespeare reading glasses I've purchased. (Something about diminished eyesight here :-) I've worn other fun styles of reading glasses, but I always come back to this style. Shipping was quick; packaged well. Thank you, Brighton, for continuing to provide the Shakespeare reading glasses over the years.

I love my reading glasses ! The only thing is I wish they didn't skip a strength. They go from a 1.50 to a 2.00 and skip the 1.75 which is what I really needed. I went with the 1.50 because the stronger ones give me a headache. I can't read everything with the 1.50 but they are so cute. Will have to buy a 2nd pair of glasses elsewhere to carry with me.
Love, Love my birthday present!

My Significant Other is working abroad and couldn't be home to celebrate my "50th" birthday, but was able to make it extra special with a hand delivered, beautifully packaged pair of glasses that I love dearly and use them everyday. They fit nicely into the glass case, which fits beautifully into the outside pocket of my new "Victoria" purse, which I adore. Thank you for a Special Birthday!!! I am definitely a Brighton Girl for life!

Soooo cute. I have to have another pair! I have a cat that eats my glasses, and he likes them too. Seriously, the quality of the lens is great, as I use them for driving when not wearing contacts. Perfect fit, comfortable and fashionable.

I always thought half-glasses made you look like an old lady. Well, I love these. They are so comfy and allow me to see things up close like I should but don't distort things further away since you just look over the top of the glasses. I've had compliments. So much cuter than drugstore readers. I'm glad I found these.
Love these classy readers:)

I bought a pair of these at a local boutique in my area 5 yrs.ago. Everyone who saw them loved them!!! I had them for three years until they disappeared one day. Today I treated myself with a new pair. Will hold on to these for a long time!!!

Purchased these in the Denver Airport years ago. I well used, abused, lost, found, continued to use and have loved them since day one!! I am just now contacting company to see if they can touch them up a little for me because they still have a lot of good use left. I am not willing to give them up yet!!!
