A one size fits all method may be good enough for some but it won't work for all. If your optimum point of vision isn't measured correctly then you won't be looking through the right part of your varifocals. Anyone can make a human error but sadly, not everyone wants to put it right.
Quite often the first thing to be blamed for varifocal problems is the prescription but in reality, it is rarely the issue. Communication is definitely key and if you know what you're getting, how it works and what to expect, chances are you'll be fine.
The bottom line is that the best varifocals tend to cost the most. It's the age old saying "you get what you pay for". If you're looking for minimum spend options, Asda Opticians covers this well. Or, if you want to take care of everything yourself, there's many online companies who'd be happy to take your order. As we only offer quality defined niche and bespoke eyewear, we will always cost more than any low-cost high-output operation.
I'm here to tell you that if you haven't taken to varifocals previously it doesn't have to mean that you never will. Most opticians offer a non-tolerance guarantee on varifocals so you should get your money back if you're not completely satisfied with them. If it is us you'd like to have with you on your varifocal journey, I can't wait to get started!
See you soon, Ella
