I never liked the flip downs. You have to line up your hands with your hat at the right distance. A co-worker gave me my first pair with a note "So you can see your catch". Costco sells 3-packs of reading glasses

2.5 flip downs on my hat. 1.75 readers around my neck. Use a piece of 50# mono nail knotted onto the temples instead of buying lanyard.
Don't like having to pull off the sunglasses and put on the readers while just doing a quick check on a fly. I didn't like the sunglasses with magnifiers built in, especially wading down at the dam.
These brook trout will strike any fly you present, provided you don't get close enough to present it.

Big T..ONE go get the prescriptions glasses and get the verilux. That stuff works great for night vision, really reduces the glare.
Easyclip frames ....find them get them. the polaroid sunglasses are magnetic and clip onto your regular glasses. This is my route.
I need a 2.25 set of readers...good luck finding them.

Default Lighted Readers

Foster Grant makes readers with built in lights, up to 2.75 magnification. They have two models and the Liberty version is the smaller lense w/lower profile. They are not waterproof.
