Just don't go "cheap" for cheap's sake. Try to buy a good quality lens and something that fits you properly without hanging down atop the bridge of your nose or something like that.

Ask me how I know....been there and done that. It was a mistake to buy a bargain brand, a waste of money. I have 2 different pair of visors that are useless to me.

I just bought the Carson Pro Series visor from Amazon. I've only had it a couple of days, so the jury is still out. So far, I can definitely say the optics are much better than on my old, cheap visor. I wasn't too happy that one set of lenses already had a few small scratches straight out of the box; however, they do not seem to affect my viewing. Durability of the lenses over time will be something I'll be watching for.

 

Edit: Mine is the same unit as seen below in Dilbert55's post.

Received the optivisor today , I was a little worried after reading some of the amazon reviews. Many stated the lenses fall off and unit was heavy . Well after using it for a couple hour today I didn't have any problems with the lenses if anything I thought they locked in rather well and as for weight I used lithium batteries as they are about half the wieght as regular batteries and found it very comfortable and I do like that I can wear my glasses under them

Update on the visor...  I have had the visor almost  two weeks and have used them daily some days a hour others a few hours and not had one issue with them . I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend them to any of our fellow modeler thanks to all for the recommendation
