What Are Varifocal Lenses?
Varifocal lenses are the best lens choice for excellent vision across various distances, providing unparalleled clarity and focus. Unlike bifocal glasses, varifocals offer a seamless transition between distance ranges, ensuring crisp and clear vision at almost any distance.
A varifocal lens, also known as a multifocal lens, incorporates multiple focal points, enabling optimal vision quality. By precisely directing incoming light onto the retina, these lenses offer superior visual acuity. In contrast, standard single-vision glasses can only focus light accurately within a narrow range, necessitating separate pairs for long and short distances.
While varifocal lenses share the concept of multiple focal points with bifocals, they exhibit a gradual transition between long-range and short-range vision correction. This ingenious design generates multiple focal points at various distances, resulting in excellent vision capabilities for long distances, short distances, and everything in between.
Adjusting to Varifocal Lenses
If you are new to wearing varifocal glasses it might take a short amount of time to get used to. But with just a little practice you'll be reaping the rewards of varifocal and discover the incredible advantages that come with varifocal glasses. Here are some things to remember when you receive your new varifocal sunglasses:
- The Top - The upper portion of your varifocal lens is designed for long distances eg. driving.
- The Middle - This part of your lenses is for intermediary sight ranges eg. watching television.
- The Bottom - The bottom area of your glasses lens is great for close ranges eg. reading.
As you are getting used to your varifocal glasses try:
- Wear your varifocals as often as possible, this will help you get used to them fast and discover their benefits.
- When looking at an object turn your head to face that direction rather than just moving your eyes. This will mean you will naturally look through the most appropriate part of the varifocal lens.
- When working at close ranges during activities such as reading try to keep your chin up and look through the lower portion of your glasses lens.

Who are varifocal sunglasses best suited for?
Prescription varifocal sunglasses are a great solution for anyone who requires prescription glasses. Protecting your eyes from sun exposure is important for maintaining eye health and reducing eye fatigue.
How do varifocal sunglasses work?
Varifocal sunglasses, also known as progressive sunglasses, feature lenses that seamlessly blend multiple prescriptions into a single lens. They work by incorporating a gradient of powers, with the prescription strength increasing gradually from the top to the bottom of the lens. This allows wearers to see clearly at various distances, including distance vision, intermediate vision (such as for computer screens), and near vision (for reading). As users shift their gaze up or down the lens, they automatically adjust their focus, eliminating the need to switch between different pairs of glasses. Varifocal sunglasses are an excellent option for people with presbyopia, a common age-related condition that reduces the eye's ability to focus on nearby objects.
