    I have an expensive prescription pair of multi focus glasses, but I like these Foster Grants much better. I wear them all the time.
    I just wish they sold these with sunglass tints, as I could also wear them when driving. If they had that option they would definitely be five stars!

    I have owned several pairs. The lenses are good although there is too much power on the upper portion, so I still have to look over the top rather than through the lens for distance views. They are good however for reading on computers. The frames are awful. They don't fit well and every pair I've had have fractured and then broke apart around the lens.

    I like this design but it breaks too easy

    By 

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Foster Grant James:

    First of all, I love these multi focus lenses, they are perfect for me. I own all the styles. I've gone through 2 pairs of the 'JAMES" because they break open and drop a lens. The plastic is too thin I guess.

    Disappointing, because I like the style of these the best, and they are the most comfortable.

    If you are an extremely gentle person they might be ok for you.

    I would not buy this nor refer to anyone.

    Comments about Foster Grant James:

    There is no pros to these glasses. A total waste of money. The right side of glasses where springs are ... broke. I thought maybe there was just a defect in that pair but not the case. Both pair have been a total waste.

    Love the lenses but the frames are poorly constructed. Have purchase several pair and they always break at the spring point on the frames.

    Have owned four pairs

    By 

    from Tampa, Florida

    Comments about Foster Grant James:

    I usually keep a pair at work, one at home, and one pair in my purse. The top part of the lens is too strong from distance and I still have to take my glasses off or look over the frames when I am looking at something more than a couple feet a way. For reading and computer work, the multi levels work great. The quality of the glasses is not fantastic, the lenses seem to scratch easily. I have also had two pairs that the arm has snapped off.

    The hinges break very easy.

    By 

    from California

    Comments about Foster Grant James:

    Don,t expect these to last long if you work. The hinges break out of the plastic and there is no way to glue them back in.
    Also they are short and do not fit over the ear well, so they fall off. The plastic gets scratched from cleaning same as all plastic lenses.
    I bought them on sale. Full price is to much. There are better options from other manufacturers.

    Expensive, broke before the end of 2 months of use!

    By 

    from Minneapolis, MN

    Comments about Foster Grant James:

    I am new to wearing additional glasses on top of my contacts. It seems as if the need hit me all at once after turning 43. I purchased a cheap $6 pair of reading glasses because I was still pretty much in denial and couldn't picture myself at such a young age needing them "for real" even though my optometrist had brought it up the year before. This year, after he suggested a number in strength when I explained that my contacts were making it impossible to see anything remotely close to me, I buckled down and decided that if I was going to need to wear these age-telling things for the rest of my life, I was going to invest in good quality. Having already experienced the cheap version, I was impressed with the solid structure of the Foster Grant selections. I liked the spring construction at the temples, eliminating the pressure that mass produced glasses can give when buying off of the racks. My only complaint up to this point was that they would not stay on top of my head when I didn't need to use them, and I had seriously been considering the librarian route of adding a chain! BUT, before I could even get to that point the frame broke while gently cleaning them with the rag they provided. It just gave way right at the point where the thickness of the nose piece leads to the thinness of the under frame. There is no reasoning for this. I have been wearing glasses for 34 years and I know how to care for them. I most certainly would not have paid almost $40 if I had known that this was even a remote possibility. As a veteran waitress I have seen that reading glasses are the number one most common item left behind by customers. Investing in something that already has a high potential of being lost is already a risk in itself. What did I pay for here? A brand name? I thought I was purchasing quality. It appears I was sorely mistaken.

    Foster Grant’s James is a sleek pair of black reading glasses that comes with a rectangular full frame and a Multi Focus lens. The top of the lens is half of the normal strength and is made for interacting with others without having to take your reading glasses off. The middle of the lens is a slightly less than normal strength that is made for short distances and working on your computer. Finally, the bottom of the lens provides the normal strength you need for reading. While the James may appear as just another pair of reading glasses, they are truly multifunctional with their Multi Focus lens.
