What Are Varifocal Glasses?
Varifocal glasses, also known as varifocals, varifocal lenses, PALs, or progressive lenses, have a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom with multiple focal points in between. This allows you to see all distances and focus points through just one lens. Varifocal lenses are typically used when you have two prescriptions, one for distance and one for reading.
There are three regions of a varifocal lens which are distant zone, intermediate zone and, near/reading zone. Usually, the upper portion of the varifocal lens is the distant zone and the bottom portion of the varifocal lens is the near or reading zone.
One of the benefits of varifocal glasses is that you do not need to prepare 2 separate pairs of glasses or need to switch between frames for different vision needs.

The inadequacies of bifocals
The field of vision is smaller than that of the single vision lens, especially for the close view. For example, reading and reading newspapers need to make it coordinated with the head movement, there are optical defects of image jump and image displacement. There is a boundary, and it is easy to be seen that wearing a bifocal lens exposes age. Bifocals clearly demarcate the near and far regions, affecting appearance and vision. And when far view and close view change, the objects will jump. Because most myopic patients have a lag in the adjustment response, wearing bifocal lenses not only does not delay the development of myopia but has side effects. Therefore, bifocals are not suitable for teenagers to control myopia, and only a few special patients need to wear bifocals.
The Pros of Progressive Lenses
In this section, we will show you the benefits of progressive lenses.
One of the major advantages of progressive lenses is that the design of progressive lenses blends the prescription. There is no image jump or visible line on the lens. This enhances your comfort with your lenses and can be safer when performing tasks such as driving.
With progressive lenses, you don’t have to switch other glasses frequently. Progressive lenses correct distance, intermediate, and reading vision within one lens. So, it can bring you great convenience.
