Varifocal Glasses & Lenses

Varifocal Glasses & Lenses

We offer a standard varifocal lens, a premium varifocal lens, made by Hoya, and an elite free form digital/back surfaced varifocal lens, the S Series by Essilor and considered to be the best varifocal lens available.

To assist you in making the correct choice, read the article below which explains everything you need to know about varifocal lenses and the options available to you.

Such is the quality of our Essilor varifocal lenses and the clarity of vision they offer, we have a 100% success rate and never has a customer requested a refund for these varifocal lenses. But remember, for piece of mind, we offer our “No Quibble 30 Day, 100% Money Back Guarantee” and a "2 Year Fame & Lens Warranty" on all purchases.

We actually offer 'significantly better' quality varifocal glasses, spectacles & lenses as both our standard varifocal lens and our premium varifocal lens options and many retailers, both on the high St and online, would, and do, charge a premium price for both of them.

We only use hoya varifocal lenses for both our standard varifocal lens and our premium varifocal lens options. 

We then use your image and take measurements from it which allows us to make your varifocals to a 100% accuracy. This is something that no other online opticians does as they will simply guess an average size and position for your lenses and focal points based upon experience which as you can image is not very accurate or reliable.

And remember, we offer our industry leading 30 day money back guarantee and our 2 year warranty for 100% peace of mind when purchasing your next pair of varifocal glasses and Varifocal spectacles.

Here is some information and advice that will further educate you on varifocal lenses and varifocal glasses and assist you in making the correct choice.

Varifocal lenses, sometimes referred to as no line bifocals or progressive lenses, are used to correct the condition of presbyopia.

Many customers who need the use of 2 prescriptions select a varifocal lens because they do not want a visible line or segment in their glasses such as a bifocal lens does. This can give the impression of a single vision lens and a more youthful appearance as presbyopia is associated with age and they are also more functional as they have a number of focal points and progressively increase in power as you move your eyes down the lens. Not all varifocal spectacles are the same. They differ in size, price, quality depending on the brand and many different lifestyle functions.

Here are the differences between our standard varifocal lenses and our premium varifocal lenses.

Standard Varifocal Lenses:

If you are seeking an alternative to a bifocal lens or are trying varifocals for the 1st time then our standard varifocal lenses will be a suitable choice as they are suitable for most lifestyles, occupations and budgets.

Hoya varifocal lenses offer a fairly wide reading corridor/area and are considered easy to adapt to. Due to advancements in technology all of our frames are suitable for varifocals and offer enough height and distance from the top of the lens, or the distance area, to the bottom, reading area. Select this option if you are looking for an excellent quality varifocal lens that is easy to adapt to and is considered the market leading varifocal lens option for varifocal glasses.

Premium Varifocal Lenses:

We offer a premium varifocal lens and this is also made by the Hoya brand and is widely considered the best lens on the market today.

A premium varifocal lens is sometimes referred to as 'free form varifocals' or 'front surfaced varifocals'. They offer a wider, less distorted field of vision. The vision from the premium varifocal lens is much clearer and free from peripheral distortion and are custom made to you exact requirements and the frame you have chosen. The only down side to the lens is that it has a higher price point but is well worth the additional cost and the feedback from our customers is that they are delighted with the difference in the lens and its clearer vision and they would never go back to a standard varifocal lens.

And remember, we offer our industry leading 30 day money back guarantee and our 2 year warranty for 100% peace of mind when purchasing your next pair of varifocal spectacles or varifocal glasses.

 Elite Varifocal Lenses:

Please contact us should you require any additional assistance in choosing you next pair of prescription varifocals.


vVarifocal & Progressive Lenses Explained

What are Varifocal lenses?

Varifocal lenses, also known as progressive lenses, are used when you have two prescriptions, one for distance and one for reading.

Varifocal lenses have a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom with multiple focal points allowing you to see all distances and focus points through just one lens.

This means the wearer doesn't need to buy and care for 2 pairs of glasses or need to switch between glasses for different vision needs.

Unlike bifocals, they do not contain a reading segment or dividing line within the lens which makes them more cosmetically pleasing and can also disguise presbyopia, the need for reading glasses, which can often be associated with age as it typically occurs from the age of 40 plus.

How do Varifocal glasses work?

Varifocal lenses work by having a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom and multiple focal points in between. The upper part of the lens contains the distance power, the middle of the lens has the intermediate ranges and the lower portion, the reading part

Below are the basic 3 regions of a varifocal lens:

Distance Zone: The ‘upper’ portion of the varifocal lens provides the ‘distance’ viewing area.

Intermediate Zone: The distance and reading areas are connected via a ‘corridor’ of intermediate powers and provides viewing for ‘mid-range’ vision.

Near/Reading Zone: The ‘bottom/lower’ portion of the lens provides the ‘close up/reading’ area

How to use Varifocal glasses:

Varifocal glasses are very easy to use and you will adapt to them very quickly.

Varifocal glasses are positioned so that as you look through the top of the lens you will be viewing into the distance and in focus. To read, the gaze is simply lowered so that your eyes will now be looking through the lower portion of the lens, the reading part. Varifocal lenses also have an additional benefit in that they have an intermediate power range which is useful for ‘in between’ distances such as looking at shelves in a supermarket or the dashboard of your car and you simply lower or raise your head slightly until the view comes into focus.

The different types of Varifocal lenses:

There are many different types of varifocal lenses on the market offering numerous benefits and features dependent upon your lifestyle, needs and requirements.

Typically referred to as standard, premium, free form, lifestyle and elite.

The main differences & features of varifocal lenses types are:

Larger distance viewing areas

Larger reading viewing areas

Wider field of vision, known as the ‘corridor’

Less peripheral distortion

Simply put, the more advanced premium/lifestyle/elite options have a wider field of vision with less peripheral distortion. They are often much easier to adapt to because of this.

Different Varifocal Lens Options:

Varifocal lenses are available in nearly all lens materials,coatings and designs, such as high-index lenses, polycarbonate lenses, photochromic lenses and polarised lenses. An added benefit of a photochromic or polarised varifocal lens is that they shield your eyes from 100 percent of the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Choosing Varifocal Lenses:

Standard Varifocal lenses:

Standard Varifocal lenses are the ‘entry level’ varifocal options and are chosen as an enhanced alternative to bifocals. They have clear vision and fairly wide focal areas for distance, reading and ‘in-between’. There will be some ‘peripheral distortion’ around the edge of the lens but this will be minimal and most customers will adapt to them very quickly.

Premium Varifocal lenses:

Premium varifocal lenses, sometimes referred to as ‘free-form varifocals’ or ‘back-surfaced digital varifocal lenses’ are created using the latest computer driven equipment and have a wider field of vision at the distance, intermediate/in-between and reading focal points. This is because the lens is a customised varifocal lens and made to fit within the frame you have purchased. It is unique to your prescription and the lens shape of the frame you have chosen and therefore offers the fullest and widest vision possible with a smooth transition between the focal ranges. They have minimal peripheral distortion and are easy to adapt to.

Premium varifocal lenses offer much clearer vision at all points and are a significant step up from a standard varifocal lens in terms of vision, clarity, focus and ease of adapting to them.

Our Premium varifocal is a ‘digital free form varifocal lens’ made by Essilor

Essilor invented the varifocal lens over 25 years ago and are world famous for the Varilux lens, the world's first varifocal, which was invented in 1959 and a total of 300 million people around the world wear or have worn Varilux lenses, with a new wearer every three seconds!!!

This Essilor Varilux varifocal lens is our highest quality varifocal choice and has been carefully selected to offer unrivaled clarity and a wide viewing area at all focal points including the distance, intermediate and reading areas with minimal distortion around the edges.

At only £85.00, it is quite simply one of the best value varifocal lenses available today. The premium varifocal option also includes a free ‘anti reflection and scratch resistant coating’ worth over £25.00 to further improve the clarity, focus and ultimately your vision.

It is also worth pointing out that such is the clarity of this lens and its vision, it has a 100% success rate and we have never had a customer request a refund for this ‘premium varifocal lens’ option.

But remember, for piece for mind, we offer our “no quibble 30 day, 100% money back guarantee” on all purchases.Elite Varifocal lenses:

These varifocal lenses will have the widest field of vision at all focal points with much less distortion around the edges. They are tailor made varifocal lenses and customised and made to fit within the frame you have purchased. They are very easy to adapt to and again, free coatings may be included.

Lifestyle Varifocal lenses:

These are specific to different lifestyle or occupation vision needs or for those who are constantly shifting their focus between distance, intermediate and reading and will provide a wider and clearer field of vision when looking ahead or into the distance. If you frequently perform tasks at arm's length - like reading a book or using a tablet device - then you'd appreciate a broader, more comfortable near zone of vision to help you see the details.

This image shows the difference in the viewing field and distortion between a standard and a premium varifocal lens. The premium varifocal lens clearly having a wider field of vision and less peripheral distortion.

Adapting to Varifocal lenses:

Although varifocal glasses need time to adapt the significant majority of wearers get used to them within hours and overall success rate is over 98%. The latest designs with wider fields of vision and less edge/peripheral distortion are the easiest to adapt to.

Who makes Varifocal lenses?

There are many, many different manufacturers who make varifocal lenses to suit all needs and budgets.

Here are some of the more popular and advanced varifocal lens options:

Essilor - "Varilux Comfort" & "Varilux Physio",

Nikon - "Presio",

Hoya - "GP" & "Summit"

Carl Zeiss - "Zeiss Progressive Individual 2" & "Zeiss Progressive Plus 2"
