Ethan Robinson who bought the Slim Lens glasses states in his review, “I bought these specifically for bed reading or watching movies on my tablet. Slim Lens is perfect as they fit discreetly without any ear irritation, no visible frame and fatigue.”
Another Slim Lens user Madison Ernst reveals in her review, “Slim Lens is extremely lightweight and durable. Although it developed slight scratches due to my clumsy dropping habit, its functionality has remained intact.”
A review by another customer Randy Miller says similar positive words, “It is very quick and easy to use. With no nose sliding and pushing back in place, the glasses offer a highly convenient option to read for hours.”
Slim Lens Cons
One Slim Lens consumer Alexander Mendez complains in his review, “These glasses simply fall off with if you make a sudden head movement or a sneeze, cough, laugh or yawn.”
Another Slim Lens customer Rob Bowen writes about similar issues. He says in his review, “Slim Lens needs constant adjustment to begin with. And if you are wearing a moisturizer or have an oily face, it will keep sliding off. It fails to find a grip so wipe your nose bridge with a tissue or paper towel before you put them on.”
One Heidi Walker who tried Slim Lens says in her review, “I am satisfied with how these work. But if you compare reviews of regular armed glasses and these glasses, the armed glasses have more advantages over them.”
A dejected Slim Lens customer Bob Clark complains in his review, “The nose grippers are cheaply made and simply break off. Even when these were fine, they couldn’t stay on the nose and could be because of my thinner nose feature. The lens also gets scratched pretty easily by simply removing and inserting them back into the holder.”
One user of Slim Lens Benjamin Cruz says in his review, “It doesn’t fulfill the hype around its design. They fall off by making the slightest of movement such as looking downward, move my nose, raise my cheeks slightly and even blink. The moment my Slim Lens fell down they got scratched”
Another Slim Lens reviewer Tom Sanders writes, “It is difficult to keep on and focus on reading for a long time. Plus it’s not a design that fit Asian nose or an oily skin very well.”
Jacob Reed complains, “Slim Lens was supposed to be my replacement for armed glasses. But they didn’t fit well and in fact once fell down in my coffee while I took a sip. They are definitely light and easy to carry but without staying on the nose, they aren’t useful enough.”
Slim Lens Questions and Answers
Question: Are Slim Lens made using plastic or glass?
Answer: These glasses are made using thermo-injection molded optical grade polycarbonate. This material used for manufacturing Slim Lens is shatterproof and is widely used in bulletproof eye-wear.
Question: Are Slim Lens scratch-proof? If not how easily do they scratch if kept in front jeans pocket?
Answer: Slim Lens scratches very easily regardless of its claims. I received an extra pair as a part of an offer from the Slim Lens website. Sadly, the extra pair did not come with a case and needed safekeeping. If not placed in bubble wrap or flexible plastic, the glass would keep smudging easily. A light scratch also surfaced within three days of use. It also doesn’t stay well on the nose which may have contributed to the scratch in the first place. These are either too tightly around the nose or just uncomfortable to wear. Finding a good optics angle is difficult due to its design that tilts easily. The only upside of Slim Lens is its convenient size that fits perfectly behind a phone.
Question: What material are the nose pads on Slim Lens made from?
Answer: The nose pads use soft plastic for providing a convenient fit.
Question: Can Slim Lens be used for reading while lying on the side?
Answer: The great part about Slim Lens is that these are frame-less and there is nothing pressing against the face while lying sideways. Hence, when fit perfectly on the bridge, Slim Lens can work while lying and reading on the side.
