  1. What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?
    What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?

    Bifocal glasses have lenses which are split into two parts, accommodating two different prescriptions in one lens. The upper portion of the lens is for distance vision. The lower portion of the lens has a different prescription, usually for near vision.

    Why are bifocal glasses worth getting?

    Bifocal glasses are worth getting if you have two different prescriptions because they can accommodate both in one lens so that you can easily switch between the two.

    For example, wearers can use the distance portion of the lens the majority of the time, then quickly switch by looking through the bottom part of their lens for near-sighted activities, like looking at their phone or a computer screen.

    This is more convenient than having to switch between two different glasses constantly.

  2. What’s the difference between varifocal and bifocal lenses?
    What’s the difference between varifocal and bifocal lenses?

    Many people get confused about the difference between varifocal and bifocal lenses and which would be the best type of lens for them. We have created this simple guide to help you understand the difference and pick the right lens type. Both types of lenses can take a bit of time to get used to if you have been used to using just single vision lenses.

    Bifocal Lenses 

    Bifocal lenses allow two different prescriptions to be combined into one lens. The lens is divided into two parts to accommodate the combination of prescriptions. The top half of the lens usually has the distance lens and the lower half of the lens is usually the near vision prescription. Bifocal lenses are perfect if you have two prescription types.

  3. Varifocal Lenses - FAQs and all you need to know!
    Varifocal Lenses - FAQs and all you need to know!

    Varifocal lenses 

    Varifocal lenses can also be referred to as a progressive lens, a term more commonly used in America. This is due to their progressive lens tones because unlike bifocals, varifocal lenses have no specific area of lens strength. They gradually combine your reading, mid-distance and distance prescriptions. As lens technology has advanced the old fashioned line which used to show the division between prescriptions has become close to invisible. For distance, you look through the top section of your lenses, mid-distance in the middle and to read the lower half. With varifocal lenses, you don’t have to carry around three pairs of glasses anymore. So just buy a pair of varifocal glasses and varifocal sunglasses and you are covered for everything.
