Why are reading glasses not advisable? I have used them, and the "Cheater" lens, for many years and the reading glasses work just fine. A lot of guys wear reading glasses to weld with and they actually can be more useful than the cheater lens because they can serve as a pair of safety glasses to a limited degree (most are not rated for the purpose but beat nothing).
