Varifocals: Bifocals without lines

If you require both near and distance vision corrections, then you are probably presbyopic - a natural condition which many people experience in their mid-forties onwards.

One solution is to have different pairs of spectacles for reading and distance vision.  However, this can be inconvenient.  Another option is bifocals, but they have a sudden change in focus and an obvious line across the lens.

Varifocal lenses are an increasingly popular alternative.  Because they have a gradual change in their optical power, there is no jump between your near and distance vision.  As a result, varifocals give you better middle distance focus as well as looking more attractive without the dividing line of bifocals.

Why choose Varilux®?
Varilux, the original varifocal lens, has over 100 million wearers, making it the most widely prescribed varifocal lens in the world. Varilux lenses have three main focal areas blended into one, so you get effortless sharp vision at every distance from near to far and inbetween.
