As a distance runner and cyclist, I use a number of sun glasses, some of them with interchangeable lenses. Unfortunately, I also need near sight vision correction. Buying prescription sunglasses in the quantity I need them would simply be cost prohibitive. These Stick-On-Bifocals are a perfect solution for this situation. I can use any sunglasses I want to and convert them easily in prescription sunglasses for a very low cost. I think it is a perfect solution. I would have given the product five stars. However, there are a few potential adhesion problems. With one pair of interchangeable lenses, I can't get the Stick-Ons to stick at all; they simply fall off every time I try. With another pair of lenses, the Stick-Ons stay in place but tend to gradually come off at the edges over time. No real problem, though, I just push them back in place with water while cleaning them. Overall, this is fantastic idea and very low cost solution for a problem I had for years. If you have a near vision correction need, this is the answer. Are there some potential adhesion issues? Yes, but for me the benefits outweigh by far the occasional issues. With this in mind, I can highly recommend this product.

I like these magnifiers because they change my reading glasses in bifocals. I do a lot of close up work. I have had some for years and they stay on my glasses real well. I lost one because I was sticking my glasses directly in my shirt pocket, so I got a case for the glasses. One came off in the case, but I realized it dried out because I was not washing my glasses. Occasional washing helps keep them in place. Since these learned lessons, I have not lost another. I would like to have find stronger that +3.00. I did not give it 5 stars because of the price.

These work great in any type of sunglasses. Sunreader can be expensive. They also work well in safety glasses. If the sunglasses get broken the lenses can be reused. Over and Over!

Reviews suggested that with the application of warm water, the sticking problem would be solved. This was not my experience. There was no way I could get them to stick to my glasses except with superglue (don't try it). I was not at all satisfied with this product.

Perfect for sunglasses when you need a bifocal for seeing close-up occasionally. Sticks well. For me when I bicycle I need to read my speedometer or fix a flat. I trimmed them to about half the size with a razor knife and shaped the bottom to the eyeglass frame. Take note that they should be placed on the bottom inside corner of the lens, not in the middle. Saved big $$ for not having to buy sport bifocals again. I wouldn't consider them for normal everyday reading use.

These are very low quality stick-on bifocals. They are not very flexible, they scratch extremely easily, and they do not stick well on glasses that are not completely flat. I have used other brands that are far superior. I would prefer to pay more for a higher quality product.

Since posting the above review, people have asked me where they can get higher quality stick-on bi-focals. Unfortunately, the place I bought mine 5 years ago is no longer in business. Instead, I now purchase bifocal safety glasses. I have been very happy with the DeWalt brand as well as a less expensive brand sold by MFASCO. Both are sold on Amazon.

I am very happy with the OPTX 20/20 Stick-On Bifocals. I've worn BluBlocker sunglasses since the mid 90's and have always wished I could find a pair with reader bifocals in them. These stick-ons are the answer! Now I can read on the beach without wearing separate readers UNDER my sunglasses. :)

IMHO - The amount of light to the eye influences the power you will need, so get a higher power for sunglasses.

These can be cut to any shape to reduce the height/width profile to limit field range affected by these lenses. I love my Mai Jim sunglasses and their ability to wrap around and shield the sun from both above the frame and sides, but was unable to read anything with them. I simply cut these lenses to the desired height/width and with a single drop of water apply them to my sun glasses and other eye wear. I wear my sun glasses during all activities, including swimming in both pool and ocean waters with significant time under the water, and so far the lenses have not washed off. However, you do need to rinse the lenses well for storage or you will get a white salt residue on them which reduces clarity.

When I buy these lenses I get at least three different powers (e.g., 1.25, 1.50, 1.75) since the power needed will be influenced by the amount of light available to the eye (and sadly age/time - or as arms get shorter, hmmm maybe that is the problem). Therefore I'll add the 1.25 to the clear lenses I wear at work, and either 1.50 or 1.75 to the sunglasses depending on the light and activities. I'm fortunate I see things beyond the length of my arms, but need these lenses for close work, I can comfortably and quickly reuse these and stick them on any existing glasses (or goggles, safety glasses, scuba masks, etc.).

I dislike having to carry any bags, purses, etc. which adapting any eye wear for all situations means I can enjoy my activities without having to carry or track multiple pairs of glasses or associated cases. To make life easier, if you think you'll need a particular power for more than one 'stick on' scenario, than buy that many; although they are easy to apply and remove back into the delivery case they came in, life is just easier (especially if you custom cut/trim them for an application) to just leave them on a particular item.

Just a bit more information, when you can barely see that magnification circle area on glasses from the eye doctor, they are using the same stick on principal. I saw this when my husband went to the doctor to adjust his new glasses, they just peeled the circle off and 'stuck' a different mag lense on the glass, naturally I'm sure they used something other than a drop of water, but same principal. I tried getting glasses from 'eye glass places' several times but would significantly loose field of vision and felt I went from normal to legally blind - having the ability to trim and shape these lenses allows me to customize applications so I'm not looking through 'power' while walking or driving, etc. If you are really careful while trimming, you can get more than one application from a single set. For me, I only needed a very thin slice at very bottom of sunglasses so that it was not in vision field during normal activities and only enough there to intentionally view from bottom edge.

Finally ordered these stick-on lenses for myself, and I am very happy with them! I spend a lot of time in my car, and I have gotten to the point where I can't easily read all the digital instruments on my dashboard, let alone the text screen on my XM radio or the street names on my navigation system. Now I can. It was easy to affix the lenses to the inside of the sunglasses I use for driving, although I did have to trim them down a bit with scissors and play with positioning a bit. But now I can easily read the whole instrument panel in my car through the magnifying lenses, and drive safely by watching the road through the top half of my sunglasses. They work great, and are much cheaper than buying prescription sunglasses.

went to walmart.. tried on several reading glasses until i got the one that i could see from about 3 ft to distance.. then ordered these.. i purchased the 1.25+.. they come curved to fit the inside of your glasses.. i dipped them in warm water and applied them to the insdie of my wrap around tinted riding glasses... now i can read my guages and road signs. see pot holes and road debre... they work beyond my hopes... didnt want to spend the extra money if i didnt have too for prescription glasses.. these you can remove and use on other glasses or experiment with the placement to fine tune them.. i put mine so they are all i look thru with i ride.. you wont be sorry.. try them.. any questions [...]
