I received my new varifocal glasses, but it feels very unnatural. How can this be solved?

You always have to get used to a new pair of glasses. 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 your new frames as fast as possible.

The most important thing is that you need to adjust to the three sections and their location in the lens: the bottom part of the lens should be used for short distances and the top part should be used for you to see long 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 prescription lenses, you may experience some blurriness and small distortions at the edge of the lens while you are wearing varifocal lenses. It can take from a couple of hours up to a few weeks before you become completely used to your new glasses.

It’s possible that the frame might not sit correctly on your face at first try. If this is the case, we advise you to visit a local optician who can adjust the frames so they fit perfectly and make sure that you look correctly through the lenses.
