Multifocals (also called progressive lenses) combine multiple optical powers in one lens – without any visible lines.

They allow you to see:

  • At a far distance
  • At an arm’s length distance, like working on a computer
  • Close-up for activities like reading.

Our optometrists may recommend multifocal lenses if you wear one pair of glasses for reading and another pair for distance.

With multifocals, you don’t have to swap your glasses each time you change from one activity to another.

What can I expect when I switch to multifocals?

It might take a while to adjust to wearing multifocals, especially if you’re switching from single vision lenses, or are new to wearing glasses.

A multifocal lens features a different optical power from the top to the bottom and from the centre to the outer edges. As a result, things might look a little blurry when you first start wearing them. However, this is completely normal and most people adjust to the new lens usually within a couple of weeks.

Not all multifocal lenses are built equally.

If you’ve been noticing distorted or blurred vision when looking between different distances, then you may be interested in a newer high-performance lens on the market.

The most common multifocal lens product on the market are a “standard” level, which were designed decades ago. They are a great option giving you ‘3 pairs in 1’ instead of carrying separate reading glasses or struggling with just 1 pair.

If you haven’t heard of high-performance multifocal lenses, you’re not alone.

Our customers often tell us they didn’t know that there were different lens options available for multifocals. Newer lenses use the latest technology to create more seamless vision between distances, and address some of the frustrations that some multifocal wearers have experienced with standard lenses such as side distortion or “swim”, or the need to find the best focal spot by constantly moving your head.

Member road test
