3-way varifocals. haven't seen anything like this since the last time I did mushrooms
The distance part doesn't make road signs any clearer.I can't find the middle bit that is supposed to let me read music on a stand or a computer screen just out of arms lengthThe close range reading part is so small that not even one line of Private Eye can be scanned clearly without having to tilt the mag, my head, or both. The words money of and waste come to mind.
I'm another in the "Meh" camp. Switched last year with the same hope as @Philly_Q that I would be able to go back to just wearing glasses, not taking them off as soon as I sat down anywhere, or propping them up my head. The zones all seem too small, and the loss of peripheral vision without a head turn is annoying. So next time it will be back to plain lenses, as I'm still doing exactly what I wanted to avoid, and have simply switched minor annoyances.
Yeah you still get bifocals @NPP they come in various sizes and shapes of bifocal segment.Sorry, my comment may have been influenced by lots of rum! Yes you need to move your head rather than your eyes if you're e.g. looking round a room or area so that you are looking through the same part of the lens. The outer edges of the lenses will introduce peripheral distortion although the latest Freeform designs reduce this.What I was getting at was vertical movement, say moving from distance to near. Some people take time to adapt from moving their head up and down to just moving their eyes.
You need occupational varifocals then.
