Has anyone ever bought the bifocal stick-ons that adhere to sunglasses. Hubby had lasik but didn't go for mono correction and now needs bifocals. I thought these were interesting as you can wear them with different sunglasses.

Interesting idea, but not at $17 , at a $1 it would be ok.

They will be lost easily, and scratched as you move them from glasses to glasses.

If its just for reading purposes, then you can pick up cheap reading glasses for a dollar at most dollar stores.

My husband has used these and they worked just fine. The pliable plastic doesn't seem to scratch and if you're very careful, they should be no more prone to loss than the sunglasses they are attached to.

The cost is relative. The ease of use would make it worth it to me if I wanted to read outside in a sunny spot. Reading glasses aren't too practical if you need sunglasses at the same time.

I have used them in the past. They actually stay on pretty well, if they are the same or similar to the ones that I had.

I have had them on my sunglasses for several years and they work fine. I bought mine at a local drug store, maybe CVS, not sure. I liked it so well that when I get my next pair of prescription sunglasses, I am going to have them made in bifocal. Nothing like setting on a great Caribbean beach reading a book with a drink in your hand and listening to steel drums.

I knew someone here would have tried these due to our "beach reading vactioners."I think I'll try CVS first and maybe Walgreens. Thanks
