Rated 4 out of 5áby Newport41 Great for outdoor people who use readers!
If you are over 45 and feel you need longer arms to read, these sunglasses are for you! The sunglasses are polarized and high quality, and the bifocal reader area is small enough that it doesn't distract from using these as all around sunglasses. They come in handy for me for these scenarios where I used to have to swap sunglasses for readers:
- reading at the beach
- reading my GPS on my boat
- reading trail maps while hiking
- being able to read something on my iPhone
Surprised there aren't more companies that make these, I would definitely recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5áby AmyInNHAgain Overall, pretty good
Overall, I'm happy with them.
Pros: nice fit with size small fitting my typical female face well, polarized lens is exceptionally clear, bifocal is handy, love the purple.
Cons: pricey but still way cheaper than prescription, rubberized arms do keep them from sliding down your face but also pulls your hair when putting them on/taking them off.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FriBri Great overall!
My first pair of bifocals in sunglasses! One glance down and I can read a map or gps while walking or hiking. I wear them all the time now while I'm driving, I'll be getting a second pair!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Naledi Great Idea!
I bought these so that I did not have to switch from glasses to sunglasses while outdoors in order to read something. I've not ever used true bifocals, but I seem to be able to quickly find the sweet spot to be able to read a message on my phone. The size fits my face nicely and they are very comfortable. I am looking forward to using them on my sailing trip in Tahiti.

Perfect. Small is great for a petite woman. They're comfortable & I can read in the sun!

Rated 3 out of 5áby VenturaKate We like the Fishing Bifocals better
The Fishing Bifocals are a little heavier and the lens is a little bigger. I don't like how the Performance Bifocals hit mid-eyebrow.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Alane Nice-looking but too wide
These sunglasses are well-made & nice-looking (I selected the purple/gray). However, even in the small size, they were too wide for my head. The bows seem to be made for a very round head, not a narrow one like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SmartGrammy Just as described/love them
I purchased these sunglasses at the beginning of the summer and wanted to use them for a bit before reviewing. I would have to say that I love them. It took me a couple of days to get used to where to look out of them for distance/up close, but after that I was so glad that I purchased them. I use them all the time now. They are great for gardening (especially when pruning and looking for aphids). I have had no issues when driving with them or just taking a walk outside. They are great to have at the beach when reading also. They are lightweight and they fit my face nicely. I have a hard time finding adult glasses that fit my face as my face is narrow, and these look fine. I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for bifocal sunglasses.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sambagrrl They fit!
These sunglasses are the closest fit I've ever been able to find for my tiny head. They work great - the magnified part is indeed narrow, but that accommodates active use.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SaltvilleShaker Polarized Bifocal Sunglasses Small
Was just the thing after I had cataract surgery and had distance vision but needed something to use to read. Played golf in them and could read the score card and with the clear on top worked well to see all those long drives. :-)
