Dial Vision Reviews
Dial Vision is advertised as an adjustable set of glasses in which each lens can be individually customized. Each lens can be adjusted individually, allowing even complex prescriptions to be duplicated.
Dial Vision is available without prescription, and the advertising points out that it is meant to be a backup pair of glasses, not to replace regular prescription glasses.
Indeed, the appearance of Dial Vision is certainly not up to the standard of quality prescription frames. It has more of a “work glasses” look than that of a pair of designer frames.
Despite it’s rather unattractive design, we found that it worked well for reading glasses or for distance, as demonstrated in the video below. Night vision was acceptable, although the glass tends to look streaked with reflected light.
If you are realistic about your expectations, Dial Vision could be of use as a backup or emergency pair of glasses. It isn’t as well-made as those prescribed by an optometrist, but could be useful in a pinch.
Below is a hands-on demonstration and review of Dial Vision.
Although the concept of adjustable glasses may be new to some viewers, there have been several products which have offered similar features. Adlens is perhaps the most similar, and is currently advertising on television in commercials reminiscent of Dial Vision.
Instant 20/20 is another As Seen on TV adjustable set of glasses, which is now available in stores.
Those who are realistic about the function of Dial Vision will find the product useful. It isn’t meant to be a replacement for high quality prescription glasses, but would work well in temporarily replace lost or damaged glasses.
