I use these glasses for fishing and appreciate the bifocals. I'm hoping this pair doesn't crack like 2 other pairs have.

      Comments about Mariner II Reader Sunglasses, Black Frames with Horizon Gray Polarized Lenses:

      I've always exclusively ordered RayBan's for 20+ years. Stumbled across these while searching. A tad bit smaller than I wanted for my big fat head, but comfy & don't slide down when sweaty. Readers are a little farther down than I would like, but one gets used to it quick. If you have to pull them up a bit to see - it's still better than changing glasses. Optics are 100% beautiful. Coatings do as advertised. Don't buy the $250 or $20 glasses with readers. This is the one.

        Comments about Mariner II Reader Sunglasses:

        Polarization Tint is good for seeing forward and about, comfortable,but, if not for the cheater section, reader area, you would be able to read an IPhone. Don not know why looking at the phones viewing area is a crazy color and distorted.
        I had a 2.0 too, same thing, as we who need these know, just a difference of positioning, arm length or not.

              These reader sunglasses are great for driving and fishing. The magnification portion of the lens is low and does not interfere with normal vision. I can see the dashboard fine, or tie a knot in fishing line. I would have given 5 stars, but the price is a little high.

                Comments about Mariner II Reader Sunglasses, Black Frames with Horizon Gray Polarized Lenses:

                When I ordered these sunglasses, I selected them for their style and Polarized lenses without realizing until I added them to my shopping cart, that they also have 2.0 reading lenses at the bottom. Great thing about them, no one looking at you can tell the readers are there. Perfect for older eyes that need to see a chart or nav station while sailing.
