Bifocals are required by people with presbyopia, typically over 45 years of age. They provide good vision for distance and near, however over the age of about 55 people generally find that they can no-longer focus on middle distance – then varifocals, are required.
Varifocals or progressive lenses offer clear vision at all distances from distance through intermediate distance to near. There are no tell-tale ageing lines as with bifocals. http://www.varilux.ie

With the many brands and styles available, these lenses combine fashion with comfort and offer protection from the damaging effects of UV radiation and glare while at the same time enhancing patients’ quality of vision.
The most obvious and demonstrable advantage in the use of an Anti-reflection coating is its visual and cosmetic improvement qualities. Anti-reflection coating reduces reflections off the front and back surfaces of the lens that allow many people to actually see better, especially at night. We recommend Crizal Forte UV coating by Essilor
