One Power Readers Review

As Seen on TV has been advertising the One Power Readers lately, and I’m reviewing them by request. After unboxing the glasses, I read the pamphlets that came with them, but there did not seem to be any actual instructions. For cleaning the glasses, one of the pamphlets recommended using a microfiber cloth with glass cleaner (which were not included).

For my first test, I put the glasses on and began reading through the pamphlets that came with them. My initial reaction is that they they worked just fine. In the past, I’ve tested several pairs of reading glasses for my YouTube channel, so I decided to compare some of them to the One Power Readers.

In my first comparison test, I set my video camera’s focus to +2.5, and began passing lenses from a couple of the glasses in front of the camera. Both a pair of dollar store reading glasses (+2.5) and the One Power Readers looked about the same, with the text in sharp focus. Then I adjusted the focus of my camera to +1.0. A pair of dollar store glasses (+1.0) passed this test, but the One Power Readers were kind of blurry, which led me to wonder if they read to automatically focus. Perhaps this autofocus was in the human eye and not in the glasses, so I continued onward.

My second test was a much broader comparison with more pairs of glasses. To be as accurate as possible, I tried these glasses on while holding a pamphlet about 14 inches from my face. The glasses I tested included the One Power Readers, Hazuki, Dial Vision, +1.0 dollar store reading glasses, +2.0 dollar store reading glasses, +2.5 dollar store reading glasses, Big Vision, and Thin Optics. Results varied, yet the One Power Readers were mostly in focus in the 7-8 inch range. My vision became blurry if the distance was farther or closer than that.

Recently, there was a news team that took the One Power Readers to an optometrist to have them machine-tested, and the entire lens showed up as a +2.5. They could not get the lens to test down to .5 as advertised.  According to the product website, the lens is supposed to automatically adjust to your eye with what is called “Flex Focus Optic” science.

In my experience, the One Power Readers did not adjust automatically, but they did operate very similarly to a pair of +2.5 dollar store reading glasses. If you need a good pair of +2.5 pair of reading glasses, the One Power Readers will work, but I would not put too much stock in the advertising claims of automatic correction from +.5 to +2.5. This is my opinion, but others may feel differently and have different experiences.

If you’re looking for a highly-rated pair of reading glasses, you may want to check out this Amazon favorite. For an ugly, yet effective, pair of glasses that can be automatically adjusted, you may want to look into an Amazon knockoff of the now-defunct Dial Vision, such as this model.

They are supposed to change strength automatically, but they seem set at a +2.5 power.

I’ve been using the one power glasses for about 9 months now. They are the best glasses I have ever used. I need glasses to read and when I use the computer I have to constantly change glasses. But now I just use my one power glasses and I can read normal and when I use the computer I don’t have to change glasses. I can get up and walk around and I don’t have that feeling of uneasiness. When I watch tv in my bedroom at night and I bring up the guide I could hardly read it. Now… Read more »

I’ve been an optician for the last 24 years, I can tell you that their claim is totally bogus. The human eye does not “adjust” to various powers. The lenses don’t magically change power either. Don’t waste your money on this. Honestly, I don’t have a clue on how this product is even allowed to be advertised as such. FALSE CLAIM!
Call the better business bureau! FALSE FALSE FALSE!

In my opinion, I Love these glasses. I have worn mine for about 4 months. They finally broke. I’m going out now to purchase another pair. My sight is about a 1.75. It took awhile for my Mono contacts to adjust to the lenses. Once they did, I Love them! And they are comfortable. I have a ton of readers sitting all around my house to use for my phone or reading. I like these the best. I can even wear them to give my eyes a break from my contacts. That is another plus. I hope if you try… Read more »

The 2.5 from the Dollar store looked the best on you. I believe their lenses, more than likely, are 2.5, as 2.5 will correct eye issues with 1.0 vision through 2.5, as it is basically magnification. This is precisely why it is important to do eye exercises, so eyes do not get weaker and one can maintain natural vision as long as possible. After watching the One Power Reader info commercial, and your video, you are obviously the professional, in comparison analysis, as well as your conclusive opinion. You are right on the mark. Thank you 😊.
