Getting used to Bi-Focals TIP NUMBER 4 If you have never worn prescription eyeglasses before, If the frame bothers you, have it adjusted by your optical dispenser • Keep in mind that the bifocal reading segment (also called the "add") provides sharp vision at a specific distance range from your eyes. • An object closer or farther away will be blurred, so you may have to move closer or farther from that object to see it clearly. (If the add is not in the right position for comfortable reading, you may have to tilt your head back too far to see up close, or else have the height of the glasses adjusted or the lenses changed.)

Getting used to Bi-Focals TIP NUMBER 3 If you have never worn prescription eyeglasses before, • Try to stop thinking about the bifocals. If the floor looks blurred, don't keep looking at it. You never used to walk around looking at the floor before you got the bifocals! • Ignore the peculiar sensations, "funny" vision, and reflections in the glass. The less attention you pay to them, the sooner you will stop noticing them.

Getting used to Bi-Focals TIP NUMBER 2 If you have never worn prescription eyeglasses before, • If you need to wear a distance correction most or all of the time, don't keep switching back and forth between the bifocals and your old glasses. That only prolongs the adjustment period. Put the bifocals on and leave them on.

Getting used to Bi-Focals TIP NUMBER 1 If you have never worn prescription eyeglasses before, • adjust in small doses by wearing the bifocals only when you need to for close work. You will gradually find yourself able to wear them more and more. But this method only prolongs the time for full adaptation. The quickest adjustment will come by wearing them all the time.

Benjamin Franklin is generally credited with the invention of bifocals Bifocals contain two lens powers. There are many special-purpose bifocal lens designs available, including special glasses for computers and for other tasks that require excellent intermediate and near vision. When some people first put on their new bifocals, they can be aware of some unusual sensations: • the presence of a dividing line, • the blur in the lower part of the glasses as they walk, • the "jumping" image as they look from one part of the lens to the other, • the feeling that the floor does not seem to be where it belongs - it looks too close or too far away. But the brain is remarkably adaptive, so you will get used to these sensations and eventually ignore them. (You don't feel the watch on your wrist right now, do you?) Try to accept the idea of wearing bifocals. Concentrate on how well you can now see up close!

Age-related eye diseases and conditions Since your 40s, you probably noticed that your vision is changing. Perhaps you need glasses to see up close or you have more trouble adjusting to glare or distinguishing some colors. These changes are a normal part of aging. These changes alone cannot stop you from enjoying an active lifestyle or stop you from maintaining your independence. In fact, you can live an active life well into your golden years without ever experiencing severe vision loss. But as you age, you are at higher risk of developing age-related eye diseases and conditions. These include: age-related macular degeneration, cataract, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, low vision and dry eye.

LENS MATERIALS EXPLAINED I will be explaining the differences between these materials. Lens material affects clarity, durability weight, and cost. Glass Lenses Originally, all lenses were made of glass, Resistant to scratching Heavy and prone to breaking, with safety issues. These lenses are now becoming obsolete. Advantages: Exceptional scratch resistance (don't need scratch resistant coating). Excellent optical clarity. Anti-reflective (AR) coating adheres to glass very well. Disadvantages: At least twice the weight of plastic or polycarbonate lenses. About 25 to 40 percent thicker than polycarbonate and high index plastic lenses. Can shatter or chip easier than lenses made of other materials. Require a special coating to provide 100% UV protection.
