Miklos Sun Readers - Turtle

Caddis Eye Appliances - Get older.  See Stuff . Own it!

Yes these exist. CADDIS sunglass readers come with a backside bi-focal, high grade polarized lens and availability in our best-selling styles. Consider it a two-in-one solution (or a stop-stacking-your-glasses-on-your-head intervention). Bottom line: If you need readers, you need sun readers.

CADDIS sunglass readers have a “backside” bifocal so you can see through two lens areas - one close up, one at a distance. The bifocal on the back side means it's less noticeable from the front. The sun shade lens protects your eyes from harmful UV light and reduces glare while reading.

CADDIS SUN READERS

  • High quality polarized, polycarbonate lenses
  • Handcrafted acetate designs utilizing state of the art CNC and finishing for fit, function, and durability.

Caddis sun readers are sunglasses with bifocal reading segments on the back of the lenses. Bifocal lenses allow the wearer to look through two areas of the lens. The upper portion of the lens has no magnification, which allows you to focus on distant objects. The bifocal segment is for reading at close distance. The sun shade tint protects your eyes from harmful UV light and makes it easier to see in bright conditions.



Miklos is our best-selling style. It’s like the elastic waist pant of eyewear…which is degrading to Miklos, but it fits that wide a range. People with larger faces like the frame thickness + solid feel. Customers with smaller faces like wearing a frame that stands out. Just depends on what you’re into. We’ve taken liberty to engrave “Port” over the left eye, and “Starboard” over the right eye. It’s a boat thing. Not a yacht thing. 

Which lens magnification is the right one for you?  Here's our helpful guide:

1.00

If you’re new to corrective eyewear, 40 or older, or believe that you don’t need glasses and you’re at least 45 years old, start with a 1.00. In the last several years we wish we had a buck for every time one of our friends said , “Cool company…but I don’t need reading glasses..” then we handed them a pair of 1.00 and without fail, “Holy &*#!  ….this is awesome”. This is the gateway drug, game changer magnification level most start with.

1.50

As you begin to recognize the need, and eventual addiction, to seeing things clearly again, you’ll want to upgrade and have a pair of +1.50 around. There are times of the day where the extra boost is welcomed.

2.00

More than likely, you’re already a buyer and user of corrective eyewear, so from here on out, you have some idea of what you need. More times than not, your first rodeo is not with a set of +2.00. You’ve probably flirted with the tower of shame at CVS, Walgreens, Krogers, etc.…the one that sits between the Dr. Scholls display and the Sonicare refill kits. You probably didn’t feel all that awesome…our goal is to change all that.

2.50

Varsity league user. We don’t need to tell you anything that you don’t already know. We also want to thank you for being a model citizen for those who will come after you. You're a pioneer.

3.0 TO 4.00

We got one word for our people in this group…… Magoo. You know who you are, and you know what we mean. Who loves you….we do. We got a Magoo user on our team over here at CADDIS headquarters, known as the Secret Squirrel, he sends you all a fist bump.
