Yes, me too, Teri.

I have to say that I found them much better than varifocal lenses
(that's what we call them over here) particularly when teaching, because
you're often reading music that you're not necessarily familiar with *at
an angle*, over the student's shoulder, as it were.

That can be very disorienting, particularly if there's a correction for
astigmatism involved too.
