Choosing Viewing Powers
Choosing Viewing Powers
To select a viewing power, consider how you will be using your Dual Eyewear. If you are a cyclist, motorcycle rider, or driver looking for a clear read of instruments, you might want to consider a magnification that is a bit weaker than what you use to read a book. For example, if you use 2.0 readers at home or at the office, try a 1.5. This drop in strength will not hinder your ability to focus on small text items like your cell phone or a menu at a restaurant.
The worst enemy to the rubber parts (arms and nose bridges) are oils. Moisturizers and sunscreens are at the top of the list but even natural skin oils play a part. They breakdown the rubber causing it to age faster and eventually split.
To prolong the life of your Dual glasses or any other eyewear, we recommend you wash them with a mild dishwashing soap at least once a week, especially the frames. Rinse lenses first with water to flush off any dirt particles, apply small amount of soap and lightly rub the lenses and frame with your fingers and rinse. Do not use paper products to dry the lenses, this will scratch the lenses over time. We recommend drying them with a microfiber cloth.
Perfect (really!) fit for people like me with a smaller face. They are nearly weightless and very comfortable while riding. The reader is very well placed- a glance down at my Garmin puts it right in focus yet the bifocal lense is completely unnoticeable when looking ahead at the road. Lenses are easy to change and the optical quality is very good. I’ve had theses for several years and they are very durable as well.
