Varifocal Lenses

Varifocals / Multifocals are lenses that contain more than one prescription in one lens. As our eyes mature we start to require additional magnification for reading and whereas you may have previously only required distance glasses you may now(usually starting in early 40s) need distance and separate reading correction. If you previously did not require glasses at all, you may only require a reading prescription.

Essentially combining the functions of your reading glasses and distance glasses, this lens type is much more convenient than two separare pairs of glasses. Also, compared to single vision lenses which blur yoru distance vision, varifocal lenses provide clear vision at all distances.

How do I Order Varifocal Lenses?


Once you have chosen the frame you can then add Varifocal lenses to the order. We have three Varifocal Lens types; TruOptics represents and entry level product and excellent value for money. TruOptics HD is a premium lens manufactured using FreeForm Digital Technology. For those who prefer the best technology the Zeiss Precision Plus Varifocal gives you the very widest most comfortable vision.

Once we receive your order we will be in touch to explain the fitting process. First, to get your specific varifocal measurements we will send you the frame only. We then ask that you have some photographs taken of you wearing the frame.


We suggest you ask a friend to help with this as ‘selfie’ style photographs or those taken in a mirror will not allow us to obtain an accurate measurement. The camera needs to be at least 10 feet [or 3 meters] away and level with your eyes. It is really important that the photograph is well lit, in focus and is good image of the position of the frame on your face. Please ensure we can clearly see your eyes through the lenses.

Once you have some good photos you then email them to info@pretavoir.co.uk

We will then check that the are sufficiently clear for us to take accurate measurements and reply to confirm that you can return the frame. We will then order lenses so that there is minimum delay between receiving frame back and fitting your chosen Varifocal lenses and getting the complete order back to you.
