Premium Varifocal lenses at Competitive Rates.
Why we Recommend Varifocal Lenses?
After your eye test your optician may find that your vision may need two prescription lenses to correct your vision. One for distance vision and the other for near vision such as reading.
It can be so frustrating carrying and then having to swap two separate pair of glasses everywhere you go. Can you imagine how much space two pairs of glasses will take in your pocket or handbag? This is where varifocals solve the problem. Varifocals in simple terms are your distance and near prescription lenses in one lens which is far more convenient for the user. Varifocal lenses helps you see everything at all distances.
Usually varifocals are for people over the age of 40 who have presbyopia , a natural aging process that makes patients struggle to focus on near objects.
What are Varifocal Lenses ?
Varifocal lenses allow you to view all distances more clearly. The varifocals have 3 different areas on the lens used for close, intermediate and distance. The varifocal lens provides a gradual change of focal power from the top of the lens to the bottom of the lens.
The upper part of the lens is used for distance viewing such as driving. The lower part of the lens is for near viewing such as reading. In between these two areas is the intermediate section of the lens also known as the “corridor” which is for mid range viewing.
In the middle of the corridor and the outer edge area of the lens is where you will see peripheral distortion, which is normal due to how the lens is manufactured.
See the image below to see a normal varifocal lens :
The image below shows what a premium varifocal looks like. The lens will have a wider corridor providing a greater clear zone for all distances with minimum peripheral distortion.
What are the Benefits of Varifocal Lenses ?
The main benefit for the wearer is that they see all distances through a single pair of glasses. It also saves you time alternating between each pair for vision correction.
Why use our Premium Varifocals ?
Premium varifocal lenses are tailored to fit in the frames you have purchased. They offer a greater experience with the depth of vision at all focal points in relation to clarity and vision.
Premium varifocals provide a wider field of vision at distance, intermediate and reading with a gradual transition between focal ranges.
The corridor area is wider due to technology that is used to create the lens which results in less peripheral distortion, this makes it easier to adapt to than the standard varifocals. We only use reputable manufacturers for our varifocals.
