I am currently wearing my first pair of glasses with multi-focal lenses. Itâ€™s taken me a while but Iâ€™ve come to like them.
Just around the time I bought these, some friends were talking about how they were adjusting to their new progressives and they complained about dizziness and headaches. Fortunately, that was not my experience. The thing that made me want to rip them off my face was that the near vision lens seemed to be positioned too high and was blurring my distance vision. I noticed it especially when I was driving and needed to see distant most of the time.
It made me feel like I wasted my money but I knew going into this that there might be a few false starts.
From the beginning, I was wary of how well multi-focal would work in small sized lenses, but the sales person assured me there was no problem. I originally wanted glasses with larger lenses but theyâ€™re hard to find, especially for men.
I am considering taking the glasses back to the store to see if the nose pads can be spread out so they sit lower on my face.
Iâ€™ve had these for a couple of months, now, and Iâ€™m starting to like them. I am naturally looking through the right part of the lenses for near and far, and I am not feeling like I want to tear them from my head. Iâ€™ve even had friends ask me to read small print for them.
Empowered with a print out of my prescription, I am on the look out for discount priced glasses and, if the price is low enough, Iâ€™ll buy a pair for general use and a pair specifically for reading and see if I like that arrangement.
Many of the brand name Prescription Sunglasses & Prescription Eyeglasses we sell at OpticsPlanet are available as bifocals and no-line progressives. In my next blog entry, Iâ€™ll give more details about how to order multi-focals. Until then, I recommend that you see our Bifocal Guide and our Trial Program.
