I, too, took the glasses out of case, and broken.
I really liked the readers. As the others, I took them out of the case and they were broken in two on the nose piece. A product defect for sure.

I purchased my readers 9 months ago and absolutely love them. However, while at the doctors office today I pulled my readers out of their case (which I always keep them in) and they were broke in two at the nose band. After reading the reviews, it seems that this may be a weak point/defect in the design.

What I liked about these was the concept of being able to get them in the same pattern/color as my fabric choice which was Slate Blooms. The quality of the lens was also very nice, and they were comfortable and chic as well, BUT... I have not had them a month and I just took them out of the case one day to put on and the left ear has fallen off. I don't know where the little screw has gone. Yes, I can pick up an eye glass repair kit at the drug store or supermarket, but I surely wish I didn't have to. Maybe you can make an eye glass repair kit to sell along with these in case this is a common occurrence.

This is my fourth pair of VB readers- not because anything has happened to any of them, but because they are all great, stylish, colorful and easy to wear. I'm glad I have to wear readers over other glasses so I can buy several pairs to match different clothing. I've never had a problem with any of the glasses and I've been wearing them for over a year.

Stylish and Fit Well!
I have had these for over a month, wear them several times a day (so take them on and off frequently), and have not had any problems. I especially like that the frames are flexible to fit my face and do not slide down my nose. BTW, they come with a soft case that matches the pattern of the glasses, so there is no need to buy a separate case (like I did!).

I had my readers for about a month or so, and just last night while I was reading the newspaper, they broke in half. I did not drop them or treated them without care. Yes, I am very dissapointed, because they are very stylish.

One of my favorite purchases !
I absolutely love these readers. I was worried because a review said they didn’t last but that is definitely not my experience. In fact, I have found my pair in my Lab puppy’s mouth a half dozen times and they are still in one piece! Very stylish, I used to hate to put readers on, now I have no problem reading in public, they are adorable. I have two different pairs and love both.

I loved these glasses. Received them as a gift. After only 3 months, I was sitting reading and I heard a cracking sound and looked to see what it was and the glasses fell off my face. They had broken right in the middle. I live in a cold climate. Maybe they couldn't withstand all the temperature changes. Or maybe they were defective, but I was disappointed as I really liked them and received many compliments on them. I still might give them one more try and see if this pair lasts longer.
