Varifocal lenses are a modern solution for helping you to see different distances, including near, far, and in between. Varifocals are created with a gradual changing power from the top to the bottom, with a seamless transition. They are ideal for providing multiple corrections for refractive errors, particularly presbyopia. Flexible in aiding your eyes to adjust to varying distances – near or far.
Varifocal lenses will bring you a sharper, clearer vision for any occasion. From driving to reading and using your phone. Whilst reducing eye strain and improving your eye health. Perfect for modern day life. No longer will you have to switch between two different pairs of glasses.
Although they sound very similar to traditional bifocal lenses, varifocal lenses differ from bifocals in their design, as bifocals have a much more obvious difference in the lens power. Unlike bifocals, you cannot see any visible lines on the lens making a varifocal aesthetically better looking than a bifocal.
Adjusting to Varifocals
As with any new lenses, your eyes need time to adjust to the power of the lens. Varifocal lenses are no different. Varifocals may take slightly longer to adjust to, due to their ability to provide clear vision at a variety of distances. You may feel slightly dizzy, this is nothing to be worried about, your brain will be adjusting to this new experience. Within a few weeks your varifocals will become comfortable to wear. As always, if you are struggling to adjust to your new glasses, our team is on hand to guide you through the process.
At Camden Opticians, we can offer you a 60-day trial period on varifocal lenses, from the time of collection. This means you’re able to return the lenses if you’re not happy, or you can upgrade or swap them to a different lens type if necessary.
