I have been wearing my new prescription glasses since last Saturday and have tried Varifocals this time.
I got well and truly fed up with having three pairs. One for reading, one for distance and one pair of bifocals for computer screen work and reading small amounts on the desk while using the screen. The biggest problem was when I went to a meeting and someone was projecting stuff on the screen and I also wanted to make notes about what I was seeing and hearing. I needed the distance glasses to see the projection but couldn’t see my notebook or vice versa.
I now have a pair of these Varifocals that have all three prescriptions in them and I think they are wonderful. I am still trying to get used to the fact that there is always distortion to the sides of the lenses and you have to remember to actually turn your head to face stuff straight on as opposed to just swivelling your eyes to the side, but the benefit of having all 3 distances at my control with just a simple small rise or fall of my head is amazing. The above mentioned meeting problem has gone, as is the totally embarrassing situation of seeing someone at the end of the corridor and not recognising them when they acknowledge me from a distance.
