About Dial Vision

Using sliding lens technology developed by optical scientists in Oxford, England, Dial Vision promises to deliver customizable focus control, so you’ll have “crystal clear vision” near or far. You’ll even be able to adjust each eye independently, giving you the ability to “customize your prescription.”

Made of a flexible, high-quality material that’s scratch resistant, we’re told that Dial Vision’s frames won’t break and that their adjustable nose bridges can provide even more comfort.

Whether you’re thinking about buying Dial Vision glasses as a backup pair (in the inevitable instance that you lose or break your current ones), or as an everyday option for around the house, what can you realistically expect? Will they work as well as the manufacturer claims, or will they have you cross-eyed with frustration? First, let’s find out how they operate.

How Does Dial Vision Work? Is It a Unique Product?

If you search online for adjustable glasses, you’ll quickly find that this concept originated with a product named the Alvarez Dual Lens, invented by a company named Adlens. As mentioned in the Dial Vision commercial, Adlens in based out of Oxford, England.

Here’s what little we’re told about how these adjustable non-prescription eyeglasses work:

“Each lens is comprised of two wave-shaped polycarbonate plates that are able to glide across one another [and change] the power of the lens. The power of each lens can be adjusted to suit your vision, all at the turn of a dial … for reading, distance and everything in between.”

Taking a look at Adlens’ glasses and comparing them to Dial Vision’s, there doesn’t appear to be any meaningful differences. In other words, they both seem to feature the same basic design (although Adlens offers a complete line of eyewear in different colors and designs) and operation.

However, there are at least a couple other popular options within the adjustable eyeglasses market, including companies like FocusSpecs, as well as another essentially identical option called Instant 20/20 (we’ll talk more about this one in a second).

How do these other options stack up against Dial Vision from a price perspective?

How Much Does Dial Vision Cost?

One pair of Dial Vision eyeglasses will cost you $19.99, plus $7.99 S&H. You’ll also be able to purchase a pair of Signature Series Dial Vision Sunglasses with UV protection by paying an additional $9.99 fee.

Either way, your order will include a professional eye chart and protective hard case, along with a 30-day refund policy (less S&H, or course) and a 5-year guarantee.

To make good on this refund policy or to process a warranty claim, you can call BulbHead (a division of Telebrands) customer service at 855-235-2095.

What Are Customers Saying About Adjustable Eyeglasses Like Dial Vision?

Although Dial Vision was a brand new product without any online customer reviews yet, the Instant 20/20 glasses we mentioned above appear identical, so we should be able to glean some good information from its online reviews. What’d everyone say?

On Amazon, Instant 20/20 had 428 customer reviews and a 3.1-star average rating. Most compliments claimed that the lenses were adjustable and actually helped improve their vision while wearing them. On the other hand, common complaints cited:

  • Unable to dial in the lenses to see clearly.
  • Lenses are easily scratched. In fact, more than one reviewer claimed that even using the eyeglasses as advertised (turning the dial to move the lenses) resulted in scratching.
  • Limited viewing angle.
  • Make you look silly, so you might be self-conscious wearing them in public.

Now, it’s worth emphasizing that we’re not told who manufactures Instant 20/20, so there’s no way to know if you’ll experience the same with Dial Vision. Given their identical appearances and similar price points, however, we think it’s worth keeping at the top of your mind when placing your order.

Let’s talk a little more about customer feedback before coming to a conclusion about Dial Vision.

What Do We Know About Dial Vision’s Manufacturer?

Dial Vision is manufactured by Telebrands based out of Fairfield, NJ. Originally founded in the early 1980s by A.J. Khubani, Telebrands has grown to become the largest ASOTV company in the industry, with popular recent products like Pocket Hose Ultra, Hurricane 360 Spin Mop, Lazer Bond, and many more.

Like most other ASOTV products (regardless of the manufacturer), these tend to come with lower-end customer reviews; usually 2 stars or less. Most often, these ratings are the result of common complaints like poor quality, poor performance, and poor customer service.

Without any customer reviews yet, it’s impossible to know if this is what you’ll encounter with Dial Vision. Again though, we’d recommend keeping it in mind.

Will Dial Vision Help You Achieve “Crystal Clear Vision”?

Based on customer feedback for nearly identical products, it appears you have s solid chance of experiencing improved eyesight using Dial Vision (only while they’re being worn, of course). On top of this, Dial Vision eyeglasses are meaningfully less expensive than some of the mainstream competition.

Pro tip: Just keep in mind that, according to one Amazon reviewer, Dial Vision seems to have a “spherical power range between -6.0 D to +3.0 D.” So, if your eyesight is outside of this range, you might not find them very useful.

Does this mean they’ll provide an equal value, though? Perhaps. Just be sure to factor in Dial Vision’s steep, non-refundable S&H charges, which is especially important if you purchased the Signature Sunglasses.

Did you find Dial Vision’s adjustability useful, or was it a waste of money? Give us the details in your review below!

    Worst product of its kind.

    I ordered two pairs as I wanted to gift it to someone. The first pair that I opened was already scratched, and the dialing mechanism broke within a minute. Cheapest quality I have ever seen. I have already disputed this and asked for a full refund.

    It says from US or UK, but the order was shipped from China. Stay away from this product if you do not want to lose your money!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Only fit for the trash can

    I am not usually a very gullible person, but I must say this time I swallowed it hook line and sinker. In the 17 odd years I have been purchasing goods online, this is without a doubt the worst ever product purchased. The ads are really nice and very convincing, but in reality, the product cannot even be classed as a toy because it is highly imperfect in its cheap plastic lens quality that it would even be difficult to use it for more than one minute.

    My verdict is "total rubbish." Save your money and don't be fooled by the convincing advertising.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Dial Vision

    This the worst thing I bought in my life. After five minutes it is broken. The screws on both sides broke in my hands, and the little thing for the nose is broken. It is impossible to adjust the lens.

    Terrible quality

    • Qatar,

    Please do not buy one. The quality is so bad. It's like cheap toy plastic glasses. Absolutely terrible.

    I felt cheated and would not recommend this to anyone.

    Not Worth the Money

    These are the flimsiest P.O.S. glasses I've ever seen. Very poor quality, very poor materials.

    Frames are made of some cheap rubber material, will barely stay on your head. Adjusting the knobs is hit and miss, the mechanism is not precision. The lenses are made of cheap clear plastic and are twice as thick as regular glasses, therefore, The amount of light coming through the lens is reduced greatly.

    I would not recommend that anyone buy this product.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Dial Vision glasses

    I ordered three pairs through RadGear online. What a got was trash! The packaging looked fake and was damaged, and the glasses were made of soft plastic. Even the lenses were stuck together like a thick plastic envelope material.

    Just one look at it, I knew I was dupped! The dial gears fell apart when I turned the dial, and the glasses made of soft plastic couldn't even stand. It was so soft. It looked like a fake copy. RadGear cheated me and never returned my emails complaining and asking for a refund. They are a bunch of crooks!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Trash

    • Netherlands,
    • Apr 27, 2017

    It seemed ok on the demonstration. But when I received the "glasses" (plastic) I found out it was just trash. They are not adjustable at all, and I am not able to look through without adjusting. The two plastic pieces were so bad.

    I sent an email to complain and get my money back, and received NO ANSWER.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    The worst product I have ever purchased online!

    I have seen the product in RadGears website. The video was tempting because of the smart concept. I was deceived by the quality and accuracy of the product in the ads and videos. However, what I received is completely a piece of crap!

    What makes it worse for me is that I even purchased two pieces of this. It was made of very bad plastic, lenses are not clear, dials are not working, and adjusting the lenses never gave any result for good vision. I have seen many "toy" glasses with far better quality than this product for 10% only of its cost!

    Unfortunately, I couldn't give less than one star in my review, but this only star may go to the well "deceiving" ads and the good packaging.

    Never buy or recommend this product!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Total rubbish

    • United Kingdom,

    These so-called Dial Vision glasses are rubbish, and they should not be allowed to sell them. They are ripping people off. Mine are going straight in the bin.

    Cheap and nasty

    A very flimsy product that falls apart while operating. It does NOT focus, in fact, and is very poorly made. When calling the company, there is no answer.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Disappointed big time

    First of all, I placed the order on 3/1/17 and didn't receive it until 4/1/1, that 's a month y'all!

    I opened the box, read the instructions given carefully, however, there is no SUCH thing as distant reading or reading a newspaper! They simply DID NOTHING to help me see distance or small close-up print like my newspaper! What were they thinking or saying when they advertised that it helps you read distance or near? I adjusted these glasses for about 30 minutes of my precious time, again! They did NOT work like shown on As Seen on TV.

    The bottom line is, I am now sending these piece of crap of a reading glasses BACK!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
