Our eye sight evolve through out our life time. As we age,  we loose our ability to focus on closed objects. At around forty, the muscles responsible for the control of our eyes are not as strong  as they were in our youth. More over, the lenses in our eyes become stiff. The vision becomes blurry specially when we read or use the computer. That process is called Presbyopia.

Most people tend to keep books, tablets or any other reading material as far away as possible in other to see clearly.

The best way to remedy to that situation is to have either reading spectacles, bifocal or varifocal.

- Reading glasses: used for reading and possibly computer.You need to know that distance object will be blurred. patient might need to carry two pairs all the time if they need any form of correction for distance vision.

-Bifocal lenses might not be cosmetically attractive for some because the lens is divided into two area. The top one for distance and the bottom one for reading (generally)

- The most common option is  Varifocal lenses. because it can be used to correct distance, reading and intermediate prescription.

Bifocal Lenses

They are mainly used for patients who cannot see in the distance as well as close up.

The lens has two parts: the top part for distance vision and the bottom one for close up.

The lens has a visible line of demarcation between the distance and the reading.

They can be tricky when the patient need  to use computers.


Varifocal Lenses

You can have separate pairs of glasses. One for distance use and one for reading. swapping between the two on a daily basis can be inconvenient. Don't despair. You can have

Cosmetically, varifocal lenses look like single vision as they do not have any visible line 

between the distance and the near vision.  One of their huge benefits is that

they can be used easily for computer with a natural head posture compare to bifocal

where the patient may be required to move his/her chin up and get closer in order see clearly. With bifocal patients may end up with a stiff neck when using a computer.
