I'm sure an optometrist would be more than happy to make you up a
pair. Every optometrist I've gone to sells prescription safety
glasses, which are typically much cheaper (as much as 60%) than
regular stylish glasses.
If you already have safety glasses and just need occasional
magnification, check out a local fishing shop, specially one dedicated
to fly fishing. I bought a pair of flip up magnifiers in 3X for tying
flies and tippets. They also came in 1X, 2X and even 4X. Not really
sure if they're technically the same as dioptor graded reading
glasses, but great for short period usage and much less expensive. I
paid only $15, cheaper than most reading glasses.
My old man did wiring work and needed the overhead
vision too. The company supplied him with saferty
glasses that had reading sections both high and low with
plain glass in the center. I don't know who they got tnem
Try www.safetyglassesusa.com. They've got all kinds of safety bifocals,
including sunglasses and the high/low combination you're describing. I
can't remember the price, but I've got a pair for exactly the same
reason as your dad.
