I needed sunglasses with the reader function and these are perfect. No more switching back and forth between my readers and sunglasses when trying to read my gps on the trail. The tinting is not so dark that you cannot see in low light conditions.

The description does not mention that these are actually safety glasses (sticker from the manufacturer on the lens say "safety reader") Other than that they are as advertised but didn't work for me. I am returning.

I have owned several different pairs of these type reader polaroids - most make walking or wading an adventure to say the least. These glasses have a nice small area of magnification and make walking and driving less dangerous. They also have a better wraparound style which make for better sun protection. Good coloring for the flats and a good density. Way better than beans at a fifth of the cost! I've seen guys lose 4 pair over the side in two years, get some keepers, or make your own with some mono and a bobbin!!

These sunglasses fir me perfectly (no sliding down my nose or too tight behind ears). I have a long narrow face and have a hard time finding glasses that stay put but these have no isssues. It took a little bit to get used to the readers at the bottom of the lens but once i did I truly appreciated being able to read items without having to switch to my own readers.
It is a measure of impact resistance. Think safety glasses.

not positive-think it is a safety rating for lens

ANSI rated Z87.1 means that these glasses have gone threw a series of tests to be rated as Z871. These aren't your average sunglasses, these are glasses that will protect your eyes in many ways. You can search, ANSI rate Z87.1 on line for more info.

That is the reading glass insert magnification.
These have a small reading glass insert at the bottom. It is very difficult to see but is very functional.

Mine is 2.0. And they are fantastic! Look and feel great, and the lenses work very well.

It means the strength of magnification. The higher the number, the stronger and larger the print on a page or the fishing fly you're tying to leader line appears. These glasses are commonly called "cheaters" and for far sighted people.

The numbers, 1.5, 2.0, etc is the strength of the bi-focal portion of the lenz. You have to pick the strength of your bi-focal.

These numbers refer to the bi-focal magnification you can choose. Not model numbers. Hope that helps :)
