I just got bifocals for the first time, and I don't like them because the part at the bottom for reading is too tiny! I actually have to tip my head up to find the reading portion of the lens! It should be half and half.

Mam why change anatomical moments of the eye just over a plastic lens? 😄
I needed glasses from the age of seven being myopic (shortsighted). When I progressed to Progressive lenses, I never looked back from day one, actually I was never conscious of that progression, it just happened. The advantages of not having to change glasses is great. Appearing as though your vision isn't as badly off is another. Children are extremely cruel to children who wear glasses. A part from having to get use to progressive lenses, which if you put them on in the morning and leave them, then they will soon become normal. If you collect your new glasses in the afternoon, then a part from checkingbthem out, I woukd suggest you wait until thecweekend at home, to get use to tgem. Put them on first up in the morning and forget about your old glasses. Get use to them, prior to driving. Funny but few people actually will admit that they have issues adjusting to bi-focals. The really big down side is the cost of progressive lenses as opposed to single vision glasses, is considerable. I think a lot depends on finances, age of the wear, strength of the lens as that affects the thickness of the outside of the lenses, fashion consciousness etc. At 66, I honestly wouldn't move away from Progressive lenses, ever. Don't forget you have a guara period that covers your glasses, if you have issues. On the rare occasion you can get a screw up, in the making of your lenses or the precise marking of the central pupil position. So never forget, you may end up with a pair of glasses that have simply been made wrong. I am currently going through that for the first time in 59 years. The prescription was way wrong and my pupil position was marked incorrectly. I pick up my new glasses tomorrow, for the second time.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
I just got bifocals and it’s irritating that in order to read I have to keep my head straight ahead, or actually tipped UP higher, just to be able to use the tiny portion to read! It makes my neck hurt! They should make the lower part for reading go UP a lot higher, at least to the middle of the lens. And make the distance part come down less, only to the middle or higher. Like half and half, while now it’s 3/4 and 1/4 or less! Maybe that’s why all people hate bifocals? Know what I mean? Tell all companies to do that and probably people will like bifocals a lot more. Please!!
i have a question, so i cant see properly out of my glasses and i keep on going to the doctor every year to get a new prescription and it’s blurry. do i need bifocals?
She is saying that when you are 40 your vision goes bad. I’m 11 and I have +1.50 and -0.75
Chuck Norris once changed his name back to Chuck Norris.
Fun fact, the Bifocal was invented by Doctor Benjamin Franklin as he was nearsighted and was tired of having to switch glasses
Reading Glasses vs. Bifocals vs. Progressives Wiki
Reading is the complex cognitive process of decoding symbols to derive meaning. It is a form of language processing. Success in this process is measured as reading comprehension. Reading is a means for language acquisition, communication, and sharing information and ideas. The symbols are typically visual (written or printed) but may be tactile (Braille). Like all languages, it is a complex interaction between text and reader, shaped by prior knowledge, experiences, attitude, and the language co...
