Yes Mike,,, I've got one similar to that. Having to keep swinging it back and forth, up and down is a PITA.
I'm thinking the visor type may be more accommodating

See ya this week, hey?

OptiVISOR - jewelers use them. Solid quality - not junk.

Yes Dog,, They are, tanks

FYI
been using the Harbor Freight $6 for a while, really good for the money, but, found myself still straining
Got the Orvis with glass lense , much better for me. Down side about 25 bucks more ,,, dah
