I, too, am nearsighted but I've never heard of adjustable focus glasses. I has lasik surgery about 7 years ago and now I don't have to wear my glasses except when I drive. It's nice to be able to get up at night and be able to see without groping for my glasses! My sight was so bad that if I knocked my glasses off the bedside table I had to have my children hunt for them! Now I sometimes forget to bring them when I get out of bed in the morning!

Yes, it is tiring and I also use glasses but I need it to protect my eyes from the pressure which get generated while not using it on my eyes. I was short sighted, i.e. I couldn't see things at far distance properly. So, I used to use glasses all the time but after 1 year, the doctors said that I don't need it anymore. So, you can get rid of glasses if your power is lower than -1!

Not sure, but I think I have the kind of glasses that you're talking about. Although my eye Dr calls them 'progressive lenses' and not adjustable focus....basically, they would do the same thing. Since my cataract surgery, I need glasses for up close; I can see perfectly far away. I was having problems at the computer, and with focusing on things. I would sit at the computer and I'd have to look down at my notes, or off across the room. He originally had me with bi-focals, but it just wasn't doing the trick! So he suggested these progressive lenses. The difference is truly amazing...I even forget I have them on. With my progressive lenses, they are tri-focal. The top part is clear (with no corrective in it), the middle part slowly adjusts so I can see the computer better (because the monitor is in the 'inbetween zone', and the reading part (bottom) lets me read. With these progressive lenses, they are NOT like the old type of tri-focals, there is no defining lines in the glasses that you can see. The transition from looking up, in front, and down is much easier with these types of lenses! When he tried the bi-focals (top with no correction/bottom with reading correction) I used to fall down the stairs lol. I've never had a problem with these. I don't really need anything but reading lenses, but since I do spend a lot of time at the computer, and doing other things, it was always such a hassle to keep putting the glasses on and taking them off. (I even tried using those things that let glasses hang around your neck inbetween) I find life a whole lot easier just leaving the glasses on for the most part.

Hi Sunny ~ Thanks for B.R.! I am very happy with the progressive lenses I have. They have made such a huge difference with everything! I can even see the speedometer in the car, and before, with the regular lenses, I had to tilt my head and look down (taking my eyes off the road!) The progressive lenses do cost a little bit more, but in my opinion they are really worth the extra, and I think too that they are easier to get used to. Have a wonderful weekend!

For quite a few years I have worn glasses with progressive lenses. In the progressive lens, the bottom of the lens is for reading, the middle for intermediate focus such as for the computer, and the top for distance. They are more expensive than regular bifocals, but, to me, they are worth it.

I wear small slightly rounded glasses there is hardly a frame, just on the top of the glass. My hair is brown and my glasses are brown with black marks in them.
