Multifocal Lenses

Multifocal lenses have power for near, intermediate and distance vision, allowing you to see at almost any distance. The lenses work by changing power from the top of the lens through the bottom.

Do you struggle to see in the distance and up close? Have you been considering trying multifocals? Take our quiz to find out whether multifocals are right for you!

But first, here are our top tips for new multifocal wearers.

Quick Tip 1: The Smallest Adjustment To A Frame Can Make A Significant Difference To Your Vision

If things are not quite as good as you had expected, speak to your optometrist. It might be as simple as adjusting your frame to achieve the perfect fit.

Quick Tip 2: It's Not Unusual For Things To Feel A Little Strange When You Try Your New Multifocal Lenses For The Very First Time

There can be many reasons for this, and quite often, perseverance for two weeks is enough for the “adaption” period to settle down.

Quick Tip 3: Try Your New Glasses For The First Time First Thing In The Morning

We don’t like change – so make the change less dramatic by starting when you are fresh in the morning, before your eyes and brain have adapted to your old glasses.

Quick Tip 4: Measure The Distances That Are Most Important For You For Close Tasks, Such As Reading And Computer Use

If you turn up with all your measurements, then your optometrist can design a multifocal lens in your new glasses. Don’t rely on estimates of distances as multifocal prescribing needs more precision than an estimate gives. Plus, we take digital measurements of your eyes and frame, to ensure optimal vision.
