“What does the "model" mean: 1.5, 2.0, 2.5?”

  • 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 :)
