    Default Re: Which prescription bi-focal polarized sun-glasses?

    Anybody ever tried those bifocals with the magnification at the top of the
    Lens? Might help in walking...but can imagine I'd like them.
    I use prescription for distance with a pair of croakies. I need to tie a knot I let the glasses hang and put on a pair of $19 readers.

    Sweetandsalt is right. I've tried fit-overs but I got too much distortion as a result.

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Those stick on bi-focal sounds interesting! Does it really work? And are they re-movable and replaceable such that removing them does not damage the prescription lens?

    They use a very thin layer of water to stick to the glasses. Works great and yes you can move them around from pair to pair. Optx 20/20 Stick-on Bifocals
    I've bought them from Walgreens and Walmart and both were around $20 for a pair. The only downfall I've found is that one pair of my glasses have quite a curvature, or wrap around lens. Tried moving a pair from my my non-wrap around AOs to these Hobies and it didn't work as the lens' had become a bit stiff over the years. (tried that at about the ten year point) So I bit the bullet and just bought a new set and they worked fine.

    Sounds good! I'll give it a shot. Thanks!
