What are varifocals and why are they useful?

Varifocal lenses have more than two parts. The top part is for seeing things at a distance and this gradually increases in strength until the full reading prescription is reached near the bottom of the lens. You can use the part that gradually increases for middle distance, for example looking at a computer. These are ideal for people who need to switch between long, intermediate and short distance throughout their day.

It will take two to four weeks to get used to your varifocals, especially if you haven’t worn them before, so be patient and persevere with them.

With our Freeform varifocal lenses there are significant benefits over ordinary varifocal lenses, including:

What are bifocals and why are they useful?

Bifocal lenses contain two parts; the upper part is used for seeing at a distance such as for driving or watching TV and the lower part is used for reading. We can also supply lenses with intermediate vision at the top and reading at the bottom for use at a computer. There are different sizes of reading area available depending on preference, and we recommend you call one of our opticians for advice on the best bifocal lens for you.
