Adults' Gadget Reader Sunglasses is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not for me I am used to having cheap bi-focal readers and want to get a quality pair. I find it very hard to do this by mail, but thought I'd give it a try with LL Bean. I wish I lived close to a store where I could try these on, as I would certainly consider buying one of the LL Bean products, but won't due to the back and forth of mail order. These seemed very well made, but the bi-focal part did not flow easily into the standard glass and made for a very "dizzy" effect. Additionally, I bought the medium frame and it sat on my cheek bones. I think of myself as having a larger vs. smaller face (female), so this surprised me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are the sunglasses I've been looking for.... My eyes are very sensitive to glare so I wear sunglasses year round to drive. And like many older women, I don't need prescription glasses to see at a distance, however, my close-up vision is compromised. For years I've had to take off my sunglasses and put on my bifocals to do everything from reading the GPS to making a call. Nothing is more miserable than driving for extended stretches in the glare just so I can read the GPS. These are exactly the sunglasses that I need. I can drive glare free and still read my watch. And today I even wore them inside and could see to sign a credit card slip. They're comfortable and as stylish as I ever manage. The trick for potential buyers is to make sure that you get the right strength.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reader Sunglasses are the Perfect Companion!!!! There's nothing like spending the day at the beach with a good summer read!!! Unfortunately, I cannot read at the beach anymore without the help of a pair of "readers". Wearing my regular readers was just not fun, as the glare from the sun with no protection from the sun's rays made for a very short reading session. I purchased the reader sunglasses and I absolutely LOVE them!!! They look like a regular pair of sunglasses and I can use them with no problems. I have never used/owned bi-focals, and was worried I wouldn't like them. Not to worry- if you need sunglasses you can read with then these are the ones!!!! Well worth the $$.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please make sunglasses in sizes. I was hoping these would be snug as someone suggested but they're not. Average fitting. Good quality saved me from spending $300+ at the optometrists just wish they were more snug. Please note I'm a petite woman. Maybe an option of S/M or M/L would work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy. Do the job. Don't interfere with vision. Love them--better fit than the deluxe polarized versions or the Onos I originally tried (Bay Harbor I believe). They are well made and I have no problem with seeing the bifocal part wearing them. The little rubber pieces at the ears catch my hair sometimes and that's rather annoying but $$ they're a great purchase and better overall than the women's deluxe just NOT polarized. I simply change and wear the NATIVE ROANS I got from Bean's last year when I go WALKABOUT or RIDING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for reading while traveling in the car I wish I had ordered these sooner. I use these in the car while I'm traveling with my husband. They are great for reading and then looking up to see distances. The bifocal part is small and doesn't interfere while looking out at the scenery. They are also great while I'm ATV riding and following a trail map. I don't have to switch to reading glasses. They seem to be of good quality so hopefully they can take the abuse of outdoor use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I just ordered my 2nd pair. Non-polarized is a must for reading smartphones, etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lens fell out A lens fell out the third day I wore these. These glasses were never abused, but are poorly constructed. Time to get out the superglue.
