They work, but not flawlessly.
July 4, 2016
Every night I lay in bed and peruse a few things on my iPad - maybe browse the internet, maybe watch a few youTube videos - before going to bed. I don't like propping my head up at right angles, it's uncomfortable, so got these to see what I thought.
On the plus side, they work. You can lay VERY comfortably on your back with your iPad sitting on your chest or stomach and watch videos or read web pages. It takes a while to get used to touching the screen since it's no longer where you expect it to be.
All is not roses though. The field of vision is limited - somewhat like what I imagine tunnel vision would be like. It's big enough, though, that my iPad screen is completely visible, so this is not an issue for me.
The image you see is a little funny though, sort of what you would expect if you were looking through prisms. There is a noticeable dividing line between the two eyes which you do get used to after a bit, but there are also issues with focus around the edges, though this could be due to my eyeglasses.
Regular eyeglasses will fit under these, but they are heavy and if you don't get them situated just so, your nose will finally start to complain - at least mine has at times - as has the orbit around my eyes if I have them pushing down too hard on my glasses. In other words, you have to get them situated properly or you will end up with discomfort.
The reason I gave these four stars instead of three is that I've been using these virtually every night since I purchased them in spite of the issues. Not having to prop my head up, being able to lay flat on my back and enjoy browsing on my iPad in the evening trumps the oddities and inconveniences these have.
My wife thinks I look like the biggest geek that ever existed when I'm laying in bed with these on, so there's that too.
