CHANGE YOUR LENS, NOT YOUR LIFE
Shortly after age 40, you may start to notice your eyes losing the ability to focus on nearby objects or you might have difficulty reading in dim light. This common eye condition is called presbyopia, and is a natural part of aging that might eventually affect you no matter how good your vision was when you were younger. Find an eyecare professional.
PROGRESSIVE LENSES VS. BIFOCALS
Bifocal lenses only allow you to clearly see far away and up close. Objects at arm’s length will still appear blurry. Additionally, there is an abrupt change between the near and far viewing areas. Varilux progressive lenses provide sharp vision and smooth transitions at any distance.
