Bifocal sunglasses may be a good option for you if you have a complex vision problem that requires different prescriptions for distance and reading, and you still want to read outside in bright sunlight. With bifocal sunglasses, don’t need to rely on clip-on shades or sunglasses that fit over regular glassesyou can look up from your favorite novel and clearly see the kids playing in the surf. Bifocal sunglasses are exactly what they sound like: Prescription glasses with tinted sunglass lenses to protect against the sun’s brightness. Add-on options like UV protection and polarization are available, as well.
Sunglass readers are best for people who don’t need prescription glasses, but keep a pair of reading glasses, or “cheaters,” nearby for reading small writing and other fine print. The same magnification applies to reading glasses and sunglass readers, so pick the power you’re used to. Enjoy that paperback stashed in your beach bag with reading glasses that bring the words into focusthe added tint will make reading outdoors more enjoyable. Added polarization and UV protection also boost comfort and protect your eyes.
