    Maui Jim Kawika Bifocals

    I own a pair of Maui Jim Kawikas, plane lense crystal frame with blue Hawaii lens and they are wonderful. I recently ordered the same Maui Jim Kawikas with bifocal reading lense. The frames are identical but the blue lense is TOO DARK and limits their usefulness. My originals are much better, lighter, easy to use in the shade. My new Kawikas are TOO DARK and I DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM

    Maui Jim

    Nice glasses, quality and style-wise. Little pricey. The magnified area is a bit small than I prefer and the nose bridge rest pinches my skin often.

    These are my first pair of sunglass readers, and they won't be my last. I love that they look like regular sunglasses, and the 'reader' part is small enough to not bother me when I don't need it to, you know, read anything. They're perfect. The fit is also great for me, a woman with a head on the smaller size.

    Love them!

    This is my second pair of MJ Readers. Love the lenses and having readers in the sun. Best of both worlds. These fit perfectly too.

    Excellent readers

    I'm really impressed with these readers. Fit is excellent for my average size faces. Construction is refined yet robust.
