Why do my bifocal glasses not work?
The foundational issue for bifocal, trifocal, and multifocal failure is that the static lens systems are replacing a previously dynamic system. Accommodation is a dynamic process allowing the eye to auto focus for any given distance within three feet. The eye ultimately looses that ability at the approximate age of 45 resulting in a static, nonchanging power compromising vision at computer and reading distances. Glasses lenses are static systems without the ability to change at any given distance thus a prescription that works for 40 cm will not be clear at 2 meters.
The key to making the multifocal lens work properly is to format the needed optical powers into a functional lens system consistent with the individual demands of each patient’s working environment. This can be difficult given the visual demands of each patient are different necessitating a personalized approach to assigning not only lens powers but also lens designs. Fortunately there are many new technologically advanced multifocal designs and with proper attention to the patients working environment, a successful solution can be achieved.
At Jury Eye Care we take the time to evaluate your individual needs and assign a lens that works best for each individual need. The primary objective is to establish a single lens system that achieves multiple tasks thus eliminating the need for multiple glasses. New technology such as digital progressive lenses has opened the door to options not previously available to resolve bifocal, trifocal, and multifocal problems.
