I can't find a UK distributor at the moment - if you find one can you let me know - 6 eyes sounds good :-) :-) :-)

Hi again

I don't wear glasses for close-up work, but I did quick test by putting the magnifiers on over my specs and they were no problem at all. The lense holder might even clip directly onto some styles of frames.

All the best

I wear glasses and these work fine as they will slip over your normal glasses with the nose piece sitting in front of them.

I don't know if they ship overseas, but this is where I ordered them from:

Maybe you should take it upon yourself and become our "dealer", eh?

Unfortunatley PaPaJohns don't only accept US funds not credit cards from abroad, so we'll have to find somewhere else, but thanks for letting us know Grumpy
