These work. Mine were made out of some weird plastic though which disintegrated in the course of 12 months or so. First started cracking, then broke in smaller and smaller pieces. Probably a bad batch and manufacturing fixed long time since, but am hesitant to buy the cheap ones again.

Plastics continue to react after formation, some much more slowly than others. My father has some coupons from the 1960s that have gotten sticky over the last couple decades. As the eldest son, I shall continue the experiment.

Flip up headset x1.0 / x2.0 here to get me a bit closer on the fine stuff. The ones I have have 2 sets of lens and you flip both down to get x2.0.

For quick work I just put on x1.0 reading glasses.

I am short sighted so need glasses for computer also.......its a nightmare switching out glasses every few minutes!

Getting old sucks.
