Whenever you receive a new pair of glasses, your eyes always need time to adjust to them. If this is your first pair of varifocal (sun)glasses, then we would like to give you some tips so you can start to enjoy wearing them as quickly as possible.
The most important thing to consider when getting used to your new glasses are the different viewing zones and their position in the lens: the bottom part of the lens is used for near distances and the top part is used for far distances. Always point the tip of your nose to the object you want to look at and be sure to keep your chin up while you are reading something. By doing this, you’ll make sure that you’re using the correct part of the lens for every distance.
In contrast to single vision lenses, you may experience some blurriness and small distortions at the edge of the lens while you are wearing varifocal lenses. It can take a couple of hours up to a few weeks before you are fully used to your new glasses.
It is possible that the frame may not sit correctly the first try. If this is the case, we advise you to visit one of our stores so we can adjust your frames free of charge or to visit a local optician who can do this for you (sometimes for a small fee) so that they fit perfectly and allow you to look through the correct parts of your lenses.
