Varifocal Glasses FAQ's:
How do varifocals work?
Varifocal lenses have a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom.
Simply moving your eyes up or down the lens will bring into focus the object that you are looking at allowing you to multitask without any blurry vision or having to use another pair of glasses as is the case if you have single vision lenses.
Types of varifocal lenses:
There are lots of different varifocal lenses on the market offering various vision and features depending on your lifestyle and prescription.
The main differences & features of the more advanced, premium and elite varifocal lenses 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 varifocals have a wider field of vision with less peripheral distortion. They are often much easier to adapt to because of this.
