    Varifocal lenses 3rd Oct 17 at 3:55 PM
    Just wondering if anybody has had the same problem as me regarding Varifocal lenses.

    When I had my eyes tested the lenses that they optician was prescribing felt fine.

    My glasses have arrived and I am not happy at all.

    Distance vision with lenses is fine.

    Reading and computer, the lens in my right eyes is not clear. I have been back to the optician and he just cant understand, I have paid for the best lenses.

    Has anybody else had the same problem as the optician says he has never come across this before.

    Have you had Varifocals before?

    My husband can't wear them.

    He needed three separate pairs- reading, computer and distance.

    I have worn varifocals for a long time and also have the very best lenses. If I close one eye and just look with the other, then it is always blurred, same for each eye. Together they work perfectly. I am happy with my lenses and with the optician.
