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.

I'm in my early 50's and have tried many different methods of improving fine eyesight for the requirements of fly-fishing. I usually just take readers and swap out my polarized sunglasses when I need to tie on tippet, flies or untangle. It's cumbersome and time consuming. I hate bifocals mostly because the magnifying lens is too high in the line of the eye which makes it difficult to wade. That's why I don't wear them. I've been trying to find a bifocal that's lower in the lens because the only time I'm using them is when I'm looking down. The bifocal lens in these glasses is manufactured lower than anything else I've found; still not as low as I'd like. They're plastic which means lightweight and seem as durable as plastic lenses can be. I've used them on the water once so far and was pleased with the result. Definitely worth the price.

I really need bifocals in my sunglasses & was thrilled to find these. I love the polarization & the bi-focal features. The frames fit a tiny bit weird on one side, but it's really not a big deal. I live where the sun is very intense & do a lot of hiking in the summer. These glasses seem to give me the protection that I need & offer the support of the polarization & the bi-focal feature when I might need to read some directions or look at a map. I have owned two pair thus far & would order them again.

This is my second pair if these sunglasses--my first were the black color. I do prefer they grey lenses to see out of over these brown lenses (personal preference). They are a flattering shape and protect a large area around the eye from sun. I love wearing polarized glasses when driving and need the bifocals to see up close. For the STP price, these can't be beat.

These glasses are just what I have been needing. I don't need glasses to drive but if I need to read something while driving, I cant see a thing without readers!! They are so convenient. I don't have to dig out the readers and switch them out just for a moment. The reader part of the glasses is not too big obstructing or distorting your view. I really wish they were women's though because they are just a tad too big for my face but that is not that important, but would be nice.

It is a measure of impact resistance. Think safety glasses.

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 :)
