Bifocal Lenses

Are you wondering what bifocal lenses are for and how they work to help make you see better? We at Eagle Vision Eye Clinic in Longmont, CO, are here with some answers.

Bifocal Lenses

What Are Bifocals?

Prescription glasses that help both your near vision and your far vision are typically called bifocals. They have a corrective lens for your far vision on the top and on the bottom they have a corrective lens for your near vision.

Bifocals can help make it so that you do not have to wear two different glasses in order to get vision correction for both near and far vision. Visit an optometrist on our team to get fitted for them. Our optometry team can help you understand the benefits of bifocals and if they are right for you.

Adjusting to Bifocal Lenses

There is a bit of an adjustment period while you train your eyes to see through bifocals. Here are some ways to help.

Move the head: One of the key things to learn is how to move your head to see and not your eyes. While this will soon become second nature, it does take some getting used to.

Adjust the blur: Train yourself to ignore the blurry aspects of your vision when you’re looking at something through the wrong part of the lens. After ignoring it, you will help your brain to see what you’re looking at and not the wrong parts of the lens.

Don’t drive: While you are adjusting to your new way of seeing the world, consider not driving with the new lenses until you are seeing properly out of them. This can be a safety issue.

You’ll need time: Don’t think that they aren’t for you until you give yourself some real time to adjust to the new way of seeing. After the adjustment period, patients may report a wonderful new way of seeing both near and far with the same lens. All you need is patience to adjust to them.
