Read and work on the computer with ease with our Hawkins Multi-Focal Computer Reader! This retro square reader features an optical quality, polished acetate frame with front rivet detailing.

These computer lenses are multi-focals with three different viewing areas, gradually adjusted in the lens. Select your reading power for the bottom portion. Your intermediary, computer power (about 1/2 of your reading power) is automatically adjusted for the middle of the lens. The top edge of the lens is the weakest power allowing you to bring objects or people across the room into focus. This computer reader has no lines, making it easy to move your eyes from screen to page! The anti-reflective coating protects your eyes from glare and blue light.

After just a short time, I completely adjusted to using the different powers. I really love not having to switch glasses to read from paper textx and the computer at the same time.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Lightweight, Sturdy, Comfortable, High Quality, Scratch Resistant, Stylish, True To Size

High quality and work good for me5/15/2016
Comments

I used to have to change glasses between tasks. One pair for the computer and one higher magnification to read (+1.5 for computer and +3 for reading). Changing glasses was a pain as you often have to read and see the computer at the same time. I have had cataract surgery and only have to wear glasses to see things 6 feet and closer.rnI also like that they are line-less bi-focals. There seems to be very little distortion in the lenses.

Pros
Comfortable, High Quality, Scratch Resistant

At first I thought I made a mistake. My eyes didn't seem to adjust to the different lense powers right away causing some slight dizziness. After only one day my eyes got used to them and they actually work as well as my prescription lenses. The progressive lenses are so much nicer than bifocals. I can wear these all day long working at my computer, reading, and distance. They cover it all. They are a little pricey compared to other readers but worth it based on how they perform. I wish they would come out with some additional styles with these progressive computer reader lenses.

Cons
Priced Too High

i'm very satisfied with the quality and especially the multi mag5/2/2016
Comments

I need magnification for reading and computer use but not for distance. Had cataract surgery on both eyes a year ago and no longer need prescription for distance. The multi magnification allows me to leave these glasses on my face for all nearby use and I no longer have to take them off, put them on or worse yet, hang them from a chain around my neck (a friend told me "that look" is very aging). Until I found your website, I didn't know readers configured like this existed. I spread the word to my friends and relatives and they too were unaware ...but they are very excited by my find. I am very satisfied with these glasses and will gladly recommend you and remain your customer. Also, you're priced very fairly!

Was looking for "No correction" at the very top"5/29/2017
Comments

I wanted "universal readers" which I would describe as no magnification at the top, enough magnification at the bottom for my close electronic soldering work, and something in the middle for computer work. I selected 2.0 with the assistance of the printed eye chart, but the description of; "If you can see me clearly, this strength is suggested" was difficult for me to understand, because none of it is clear at 14" away, that is why I wanted readers after my cataract operation.rnrnI can read all the way down to the smallest line, for +1.0, but it is just as fuzzy around the lettering as the biggest type for +3.25. These glasses (+2.0) make that whole chart crisp and clear.rnrnBut my eyes get tired quickly when using them for the computer, which is 23" away, unless I lean into it, putting the screen about 17" away. They work great for my close-up work on printed circuit boards.rnrnI am accustomed to the variable magnification lenses, been wearing them before surgery for many many years, and if there is a side-to-side distortion in these, I don't notice it.rnrnI previously used plastic safety glasses with reader inserts, and they truly have no correction at the top, but they gather dust and lint so quickly, and the Readers.com glasses are free of that.rnSo they are still my favorite, I just wish they were half size so I could see over them.rnrnNo, I am not seeking a refund, but if you had these in half-size, or truly "no correction" at the top, I would buy them.

Pros
Comfortable, High Quality

Multi-focal: Beware4/21/2016
Comments

I hadn't tried multi-focal lenses, and they weren't what I expected. the sides are severely distorted--can't see anything clearly at any distance--so I can only see up the vertical middle. Not sure how anyone gets used to that.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Sturdy, High Quality

Great for working on a computer in clinic5/2/2017
Comments

I work in a clinic and have to look back and forth from the computer to people and glance back and forth. to look at the computer then the patient. In addition I have to look at very close things when examining people like rashes. They are great for all these and have a wider focal area than my progressive prescription glasses. My only down side for them is they definitely have quite a bit of magnification at the top making them not comfortable for driving.

Pros
Accurate Magnification, Sturdy, Comfortable, High Quality, Stylish

No non-aided viewing at top4/30/2017
Comments

I ordered these glasses thinking they could be a multi purpose pair that I could wear everywhere. However, after putting them on they do not have the "The top edge of the lens is adjusted for non-aided viewing" feature. Even the top edge has some magnification, so you can't see infinity clearly. Also, the progressive lens are giving some distortion problems in the periphery vision. I guess it is dependent on the user's individual vision circumstances. They just don't work for me. I am planning on exchanging them for some bifocal computer use glasses.

Pros
High Quality

As with all progressive lenses the pupillary distance is the most important measurement. Since ordering these glasses does not use this, it is imposable to know if they will work for you. They did not work for me. They do have great frames.rn
