    best reading glasses on the market

    Believe me, I've tried lots of different reading glasses; +2.50. There is nothing that comes close to the Kanda folding slim fold. Clarity of lenses, resistance to scratching, ease of keeping them in your pocket unharmed without bulkiness in my case, and durability over time are all superb. Mine typically last 3-4 years. So they are more expensive than most but the quality and longevity as well as small case protection of these glasses makes them well worth the price. I always keep a back up and friends and colleagues all admire them and want to know where I get them
