reading glasses, .50 strength, how to search?

Searching for [reading glasses .50] gets me 2.50, etc., on both Google and Amazon. ReadingGlasses.com has expensive ones, but I'm hoping to find good, low-strength reading glasses for the same price one would pay in a drug store. Strength .5 and/or .25. Any specific recommendations or search tips? (and what is the unit of measurement, anyway?)

Rollecoaster + Glasses

Is there a way to tell whether one can wear glasses on a rollercoaster, so that the glasses will not fall off midway through the ride? Is it a simple case of upside-down means don't-wear-glasses? (No, I am not talking about Google Glasses.)

The laws of thermodynamics are against me.

How do I keep my glasses from fogging up while skiing? Just got back into (downhill) skiing but I wear glasses now, and peering through the fog that forms on them when I'm wearing goggles is making me crazy, plus I can't see things like icy spots or fallen snowboarders. Are there some sort of secret techniques for preventing this?
