Choosing Bifocal lenses for your Eyewear

Posted by

If you are getting a new pair of glasses, maybe you have thought about getting some bifocal eyewear. If you have different glasses for both farsightedness and nearsightedness, maybe bifocals are a better option as compared to having multiple pairs of glasses around the house. You can use them as at least a temporary transition between your vision if you are doing something like taking notes.

Bifocals are great if you do want to have your distance and near vision to be separate so you don’t need to worry about switching pairs or even taking your glasses off in between tasks.

For example, if you only need to look down for a few minutes at a time, these are really helpful. If you need to look down to read or type something down while in a meeting but need to mainly check the projector or look at others, bifocals come in handy.

However, keep in mind that you may become disoriented as bifocals can cause “image jumps.” An image jump occurs when you are abruptly switching between your distance and near vision. This can be severely disorientating for some people, especially if you suffer any type of motion sickness or disorientated easily.

It can also take a while to get used to them due to this image jump. However, this is ideal for those who have high intensity prescriptions and need to take them off for different activities. This can replace having pairs

Bifocals aren’t for everyone, so try on a pair in the store and see what you think before you decide to buy them – or get a very cheap pair and see how it works out so, if it isn’t right for you, you won’t feel that empty space in your wallet.
