Bifocal Sunglasses are designed to make all outdoor activities easier, not just reading. This includes computer use, writing and anything that uses the close range focus, including newspapers and signs.

Bifocals Sunglasses contain an actual line across the middle of the lens, which separates the two focal parts. Your Optician will work with you to decide which shape should be used for the near vision focal segment. A half-moon or circular shape is commonly used.
