robomatic BS: varifocal lenses (64* d) RE: BS: varifocal lenses 19 Nov 19


I'm thinking that varifocal is what we call 'progressive' lenses in the States.

I've been getting my eyes checked and my glasses and contacts all at Costco.

I am near-sighted and astigmatic and with age I don't focus so well in the near. I've got two pairs of glasses. One is progressive and self-darkening in outdoor light and I find it is suitable for driving but doesn't actually focus as well as the smaller pair with a single prescription for distance. While the progressive lenses gave some distortion when first used, my eyes/brain seem to have been able to take that into account. I have not found them to be unsafe in normal use and in getting about.

I can use the laptop and read almost normally with no corrective lenses. If I need to read the prescription bottle's fine print then a set of cheap plastic reading glasses basically act as magnifying glasses but I don't normally need them.
