Re: Varifocal specs and online suppliers?

Hi Ian. Welcome to the club of wasted eyes. Trues of life. I totally agree with Bob thinking. I have used mulifocal or progressive lenses for 30 years. Sometimes I go to bed or to the swimming pool and forget I have them on. You will get easily confortable with them in no time. Few weeks-month.
For Cameras, I use them in live view photography and take them off using the viewfinder with appropriate diopter correction of it.
I also has astigmatism in both eyes and that is no t a problem with the viewfinder I also recomend you to try the lens prescription in the optician house or any place during several minutes. Go to the street and have a long distance view, look the middle distance arround you and read some small fontsize paper. Sometimes, the prescriptions might have small innacuracies.
Life above 55 is possible and very rewarding also Regards.
