I am very happy with the product. I am working on getting accustomed to wearing the glasses all the time. The lightweight sturdy comfortable frame is making it easy. Would buy more from Readers.com.

Needed a bifocal with clear glass above after cataract surgery. These seemed great at first, but they slide down my nose and need pushed up constantly. Also, there is a glare around the reading lens, almost as if it's trying to separate from the glasses.

Pros
Lightweight, Sturdy
Cons
Uncomfortable, Scratch Easily

I bought these mainly for driving on cloudy days. For sunny days I was able to purchase bifocal sunglasses locally.rnThe frame is higher than I expected (I should have noted that when I ordered).rnHowever, my main problem was with the height of the lower (reading) portion. It comes too high for everyday use, much less for driving. I can't look straight ahead without see partly through the reading portion.rnThey are somewhat usable if reading in bed or sitting on recliner with head propped up.

Pros
Accurate Magnification

It's no fluke, I've gone through three pair now. They always break the same way after about two months of use. It's time for Readers.com to address this issue.

Pros
Lightweight, Comfortable
Cons
Break Easily, Flimsy

I liked the basic design ...5/3/2015
Comments

I liked the basic design and construction, but a screw was missing and a lens had fallen out when I received it. Also, the bifocal on one lens was crooked but still usable. More quality control needed.
