What Are Varifocal Lenses?
Varifocal lenses give your glasses the ability to provide excellent vision at both long and short distances. Unlike bifocal glasses, they have a gradual transition between distance ranges which allows you to have crisp and clear vision at almost all ranges.
A varifocal lens (sometimes referred to as a multifocal lens) works by giving multiple focal points. A focal point is where you will have the best vision quality as the incoming light is focussed correctly onto the retina. Standard, single vision glasses will only be able to perfectly focus the light at a relatively narrow band of ranges - this is why you usually have long-ranged or short-ranged single vision glasses.
Varifocal lenses use the same principle as bifocal lenses as they both contain a long-range and a short-range lens. However, varifocals are designed to transition gradually between the two. The by-product of this is the generation of multiple focal points at a variety of ranges - giving you great vision at long distances, short distances, and a range of distances 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 practise 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 lense.
