Are varifocals suitable for driving?
There is no problem driving in varifocals. They are particularly useful if you have trouble seeing both close-ups and far aways.
While driving, these devices are convenient due to the need to switch between a satnav/dashboard (near), the road signs (intermediate vision) and distant road signs (far vision).
There are multiple prescriptions in a varifocal lens, including near, far, and everything in between. When you wear bifocals, you cannot distinguish between the different areas because they blend into one another. As you move your eyes, you will be able to see the road ahead, as well as the speedometer.
Our Digital Precision Eyecare technology enables us to calculate and measure varifocal lenses for you, since they are very advanced lenses. To ensure that your lenses are always made precisely according to your prescription and eye measurements, our experts will determine where the lens zones should be positioned for your different vision types and choose the appropriate varifocals for your frame.
Disadvantages of Varifocal Glasses
Do consider the disadvantages of varifocal glasses before selecting a style.
As a result of advanced technology, varifocal glasses are more expensive than bifocal glasses. They are more expensive to produce than bifocals because they are digital lenses in a sense. Additionally, not all varifocal glasses are the same. Do not buy low-quality varifocal glasses, as their peripheral vision can be quite blurry.
The peripheral vision is not of top-notch quality through some varifocal glasses. However, with advanced progressives available on the market, you can rest assured that it is not a problem.
A person may also experience headaches and eye strain while getting used to varifocal glasses, which may take up to 2-3 weeks.
