i would find it hard to read and my glasses prescription is pretty small. assume your mum is [ahem] probably of the age where vision gets worse? i'd prob keep looking, but then again you said she wants it???

God, that looks really tiny. I don't wear readers (but I do wear specs although am short sighted) and I'd have to peer quite closely that one !

Please buy her one that she can see. Dh bought me a lovely watch, but I had to take it back and change it because I couldn't see it without my reading glasses. I am in my early fifties, and my eyesight started to deteriorate from about 45.

I'd go for something in a similar style but with a larger face.

yes she wants it but I'm not sure she's thought through the practical implications and don't want to bring it up with her!
