They are limited to 1,000 pairs per order and they may not be sold. The order should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org at least six weeks before the mission on your stationary with a list of requested diopters. VOSH-SE will pack the order and invoice you for the diopters and the shipping. Upon receipt of the payment, they will ship within 3 working days. VOSH-SE offers additional readers at 75 cents each from +1.00 to +3.50 and +4.00, +4.50, +5.00 and +6.00 at $2.50 each. The high readers are made using their frames and lens in an optical lab.
