It can take time for you to get used to varifocal lenses, so we’ll let you try a pair for three months. And if you can’t get used to them, you can swap your varifocals for bifocals, or two pairs of glasses - one for distance and one for reading.

Bifocal lenses

Standard bifocal lenses - £35

Offering distance and near vision in one lens. Bifocals have a small segment at the lower part of the lens containing your near vision area.

Premium bifocal lenses - £45

As for standard bifocals, these lenses offer distance and near vision in one lens. Premium bifocals have a larger segment at the lower part of the lens containing your near vision area.
