Rated 5 out of 5 by cupcakemomma Pleasant surprised
The bifocal part is a little noticeable to me, but not to others. The sunglasses are trendy, and are a lot better than me trying to put sunglasses on top of reader glasses or vice versa. I didn't even know these existed until I noticed them in a catalog. A nice addition to my wardrobe, and they are not cheap and are a decent weight pair of glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mfromkansas Love these!! Getting my third pair!
These glasses are fantastic!! I still have the first pair I bought 5-6 years ago. I use them all the time and people ask me about them. I recently lost my newest pair and I thought I could get by with my old ones, but I need a stronger reading magnification. So, I'm getting another pair! The only problem I've had is that the oldest pair is starting to peel on the lenses closest to the frame. A great buy overall though.

I have several pair of inexpensive readers, but none are polarized. These are stylish yet functional and great when driving and have to glance at GPS! I can now see it without removing sunglasses and putting on reading glasses!!!

The bifocal line is just a hair too high in the lens but I adjusted to it. With my next pair I would go back to the other style. I have had two of those. I'm now at the 200 magnification and would have liked +175 as an option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky15 Must have for reading in the sun!
This is the third pair of bifocal sunglasses that I have purchased from LLBean. The first two pairs were great but the rubber nose rests kept breaking off! I was still using them when I lost the second pair in the surf. I then tried my current pair and love the fact that the nose rest is part of the frame. While I was waiting for the new ones to come I realized how dependent I had become on having the bifocals built right into the sunglasses! They are comfortable and fit snuggly on my head without putting on any unnecessary pressure. I am truly happy with this pair of sunglasses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zelda329 My 3rd pair!
I wear these everywhere; the pool, the patio, the grocery store , doing yard work, you name it. They fit great and I love the way they look.

I was satisfied with the purchase. The only issue was with fit. They seemed a bit lopsided and I had to take them to a local optometrist to help with the fitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Agave31 Poor design, great customer service
I ordered these bifocal sunglasses to replace the exact same pair I've been wearing for the past year. One of the temples/arms of my previous pair fell off in the middle of a road trip. When I brought the glasses to a local optical shop I was surprised to learn they could not be repaired. Apparently a whole new temple/arm would be needed due to the unique design of the frames. I had many hours of road travel remaining and needed quality bifocal sunglasses in order to be able to see my maps, iPhone, etc. I called LL Bean and ordered a replacement pair for delivery to my hotel. It arrived the next day! In summary, I love the lenses but am disappointed in the design quality of the frames.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Badyoga useful and look good but...
I got these several years ago...I like the coverage and the look...the polarizing..The thing I don't like is the reading 'lens' part is a plastic glued-on piece and even when I first got it a line bothered me ...but it was too sunny where I live (high desert) and I didn't want to wait for another pair (that may have the same problem)
My older model of LLBEAN Performance ones had the lens cut-- not the plastic press on lens.
Before I got another pair I would find out if the bifocal lens was glued-on or actually cut. The later is superior, it seems to stay cleaner.
