​Multifocals & Proper Wearing Techniques

Posted by Accuspire on Apr 1st 2023

When you are about to get a new multifocal glass, you will be super excited that you will be able to see small prints. It doesn’t matter how you will look in those glasses. At first, you will feel that the world is in a tilted position and the vision will also seem a bit distorted and blurred. This is not a problem at all, as it is experienced by most of the people who are wearing multifocals for the first time.

Choosing the right frame and lenses:

It is to be noted that not all frames are suited for multifocal lenses. Multifocal lenses involve correction of two or three different distances that is, near, intermediate and distant. Shallow frames are known for their stylish looks but they do not give you the liberty of seeing at different distances. So, it is always advisable to choose a larger frame to get your multifocals fixed. Multifocals which are designed for computer usage may have near and intermediate distance. Choose the right type of multifocal lens, suited according to your need.

As different lens parts are focused for different distances and it is important for them to be positioned rightly in front of the eyes. Even a small adjustment in the nose pad can change the lens position and cause problems. It is important to take all the measurements before putting the spectacles.

Some people like to put the frame bridge close to the nose and some like to put the lens tight behind the ears, ensuring that they do not fall.
