    I went to a welding show and found a pair of safety glasses designed with a clip-in lens holder in it. Took the lens holder to my
    optician and he put my scrip in it for $65. The good thing is, the lens holder is protected by the safety glasses lens. So new safety
    glasses are $10 and the prescription lens should last a long time. Plus you can use the safety glasses for other close-up operations
    and less weight in your helmet, etc.

    I have a miller elite for cheater lenzs I just go to cvs/walgreens or any other store that sells reading glasses. I buy them in a 3 pack they are normally 3 piars for 10 bucks .I kep two packs in my tool box in my truck .they work great and if they get scratched oh well just chunk them and grab a new pair.one box will lest me well over a month.well worth the money .plus you can wear them under your face shield when cutting.

Need to grind a few more to find the right ones as I am used to a booster to see small welds. That's seems to be the economical solution.

    looks like you may have taken the most practical path...

    I was under the mistaken impression that there are "STANDARD" lens sizes... that had once been true... BUT these days with the many variables... they just grind the lens to fit the frame ... using a machine like this to trace and grind the profile

    There are however a bunch of discount places online that you can send your frames to... who will fit your diopter or RX to and send them back to you...

    Got this response back from John Herek of MILLER

    Thanks John...!!

    Heiti-

    There is a clear plastic lens in the box that you can take to Walmart optical and they will put the prescription in the lens.

    Did finally find the manual

    "Section 4-1 Inserting Optical Lens Frame" page 12 of the PDF.... shows what looks very much like an eyeglass frame...

    Jim

    interesting questions

    I was unable to find an answer either

    don't know if it uses a standard 2x4.5 cheater or 50mm round .... or ..??

    So I forwarded the link to somebody who probably can..

    started a topic Miller weld -mask gogles magnifier??

    Miller weld -mask gogles magnifier??

    What's up with this product ?sounded like a good idea for some hard to see positions and literature states you can use a lenz with it but I just opened it up and I see an optical lense frame in the manual as an option but where do you buy them and what do you put in the Lenz frame ? I can't wear any glasses with it either, no room so basically useless for precision tig work for any of us older folks. Regular cheaters don't fit and glasses don't fit?? wHats Up?
