I do a lot of construction work and beat the crap out of my reading glasses...anyone have a line on really tough reading glasses?

If you know of any glasses that are tough and won't get lost as well..that is cool too.

I went the opposite route..

Dollar store... 10 pairs, 10 bucks..
Screw up a set, toss 'em.

Same as I do with safety glasses, only I haven't found a source of safety glasses that cheap yet.

toughness is relative, but so they don't get lost, that's simple; put a label on them that reads:

"If you are reading this label, you have most likely been infected by a sensitive radioactive isotope. Please return these glasses immediately to Kraniac to obtain the antidote which will prevent the infection from spreading, or doing any permanent damage if the antidote taken within the approximate 24 hour incubation period from now. Please call Kraniac at (800) 555-1234 to expedite the glasses for antidote exchange."


or, do like Mrs. Buzz, and buy the three packs at costco, or in quantity at the dollar store, and don't worry about them...

I already do the Costco 3 fors and that's cool but the durable ones there..i don't like em, lenses to small. The lightweights break to easily.

I guess I'm looking for some buddy holly frames with big lenses and slightly better build. then I'd buy ten of those. I hate wasting stuff and I tend to try to keep my @#$%& a long time...nice to build bonds with life's crap in your pockets ????? I do use them as combo, light duty safety glasses / reading goggles.

How does one 'fit' a pair of off-the-shelf reading glasses? Just try them on and try reading some text?
