I am one of those people and I've made a study of the art of the eyeglass.
The stereotypes of thick and large eyeglasses is just plain no longer true.
You can now enjoy clear vision with sophisticated correction and an attractive style.
Materials like Trivex, polycarbonate and CR-39 allow bifocal reading glasses to be more sturdy, feature-rich and versatile than ever before yet still achieve a wide variety of styles.
You can even have small rimless bifocals and no-line bifocal reading glasses with progressive lenses.
Additionally, you are not restricted to just bifocal lenses.
You can find sleek, attractive lenses and eyeglass frames which allow either trifocal or progressive lenses.
To enjoy the convenience of a multi-prescription lens you no longer have to endure large, heavy glasses on the bridge of your nose.
Switch easily from reading the paper, examining the computer monitor and talking to your friends, all with clear vision, comfort and an attractive eyeglass style.
These great lenses also work great for computer glasses or bifocal sunglasses.
Whether you are working at the office, at home or you are out playing frisbee with your puppy, modern materials, manufacturing and design enable you to wear comfortable and effective eyeglasses.
You can put it all together with a bifocal sunglasses featuring a progressive lens and sleek, semi-rimless design.
So before you invest in those sticky little things you have to poke into your eyes each day (aren't you tired of contacts?), I encourage you to research the modern capabilities of the classic bifocal reading glasses.
