More than likely you have a pair of biker shades you can wear to ride , but what do you do if you can’t see your speedometer, your GPS, your phone, or menus at the drive in? Yes, you need a pair of reading glasses, but who wants to swap glasses every time? Here’s a short article which explains how you can tell when you need bifocals. You need a pair of motorcycle sunglasses with built in bifocals. Bikershades.com is the place where you can get them.
WHAT ARE MOTORCYCLE BIFOCAL GLASSES?
Motorcycle Bifocal Glasses have a distinct magnified area at the bottom 1/3 of lens. When you look through this bottom area, small objects like print are magnified. Bikers can see their instrument panel, maps on their phones, menus, and those unfortunate traffic tickets (oh no!). When looking straight ahead, the vision is normal. There is no magnification when looking far.
Bifocals are available in the following powers: +1.00 +1.25, +1.50, +1.75, +2.00, +2.25, +2.50, +2.75 +3.00, +3.25, +3.50, +3.75 or +4.00. However, some styles have powers which are only available in .50 increments. So, if you are X.25 or X.75 power, it is best to round up to the next half power increment.
Some bikers wear their casual bifocals to ride, which probably isn’t very safe. Casual bifocals can fly off your face, don’t protect you from wind and debris, and probably have plastic lenses.
Bifocals Designed for Motorcycle Riding should also have:
– 180 degree wrap for full protection and snug fit.
– Foam padding to seal out wind and debris (select styles)
– Polycarbonate Impact resistant lenses
What Are Full Lens ‘Reading’ Motorcycle Biker Sun Glasses?
Bikers who are Far Sighted (hyperopia), or those who can’t see objects close up need ‘plus’ power lenses to see clearly. Although we recommend bikers purchase custom prescription glasses if they are far sighted, many bikers can wear Full Lens Reading Glasses to see.
Bikers can also wear full lens no line readers to see their phones or read books outdoors. One of the benefits of a no line reader is that the ENTIRE lens is magnified. You are not limited to looking through a small portion at the bottom of the lens.
The less you carry on your bike the better. So it makes a lot of sense to purchase motorcycle shades with built in cheaters. Plus these sunglasses are extremely affordable. Shop Bikershades.com for a huge selection of motorcycle bifocals for men and women at incredible prices.
