Varifocal glasses are used when you have two prescriptions, one for distance and one for reading. All of our frames are suitable for varifocal lenses
Varifocal lenses have a gradual change in strength from the top to the bottom with multiple focal points in between allowing you to see all distances and focus points through just one lens. 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
The ‘upper’ portion of the lens provides the ‘distance’ viewing area.
The distance and reading areas are connected via a ‘corridor’ of intermediate powers and provides viewing for ‘mid-range’ vision.
The ‘bottom/lower’ portion of the lens provides the ‘close up/reading’ area
We offer 3 types of varifocal lenses:
The main differences & features of improved varifocal lenses are:
Simply put, advanced premium & elite lens options have a wider field of vision with less peripheral distortion. They are often much easier to adapt to because of this.

How to choose varifocal frames:
We advise selecting a frame with a large eye size - the bigger eye, the bigger the vision as you will have a wider field of view and fully benefit from the lens area - although all of our frames, small & large, are suitable to be bought with varifocal lenses.
Please don't hesitate to contact us should you require any further information or would like to discuss any brand of varifocal lens and one of our advisers will be happy to assist you in selecting the correct varifocal glasses for your prescription, lifestyle and budget.
