• Multifocal Glass Center


In addition to being a long -haired visual store, Vardavas is also a model center of multifocal glasses thanks to our enormous experience and scientific knowledge on the manufacture of polyesful glasses over the last 45 years.


Multifunctional glasses are a very important issue, as all humans have presbyopia over the years. It is the kind of glasses that makes our eyesight and, of course, our lives easier after the age of 40.

Occasionally, in our store (Academy 18) there are customers who are negative about the market for multifocal glasses either because they have heard about it, or because they have experienced personal difficulties in adapting this type of glasses. We inform you how all this is myths.

Through this section, which emerged from our need to share with you our deep knowledge of all kinds of glasses and our specialty in multifocal glasses, we will present you:

  • The advantages of multifocal glasses.
  • The needs they meet and the ages to which they are addressed.
  • Answers toFrequent questions For polyesic glasses.

Here, potential users of multifocal glasses as well as those who already use them have the opportunity to be informed of anything related to them.


All this time, we have built over 30,000 multifocal glasses in our store at 18 Akadimias Street, with absolute success. With certainty of the ideal result, we even guarantee a refund or, alternatively, the manufacture of new individual glasses if a customer does not get used to his polyesic glasses -which is particularly rare in the Vardavas Optic House.

It is no coincidence that with our clients, inside and outside Athens but also inside and outside Greece, we maintain long -term relationships of trust. It is also no coincidence that all these years we have been at the top of the preferences for multifocal glasses-and not only.

The Vardavas Optic House always stands with you with respect, professionalism, knowledge and perseverance for the perfect result. We will continue to do everything in our power to always be completely satisfied!


  • What are the multicaspous glasses


Multifunctional glasses are the most modern way to meet all the vision needs of an ambassador, that is, a person who has difficulty in close vision. Using multifocal glasses, the user can look away, close, but also at all intermediate distances, which is not guaranteed with an individual pair of glasses (only distant or nearby). In addition, themultifocal lenses They include all the necessary corrections of possible refractive abnormalities (myopia, astigmatism, hypermetropia, presbyopia) that the user has based on his ophthalmological prescription.

Multifunctional glasses work as follows: The lens binocular power is gradually changed and smoothly from the upper part (where the distant fireplace is located) downwards (where the nearby fire is located), thereby offering perfect vision to the interim and in the interim and in the interim. Distances (for example, computer use, office work, driving, etc.). Therefore, the user acquires the ability to see clearly at all distances, without suffering with many pairs of glasses (distant, near, intermediate).


Appearance of presbyopia and use of multifocal glasses

Polystic glasses can be used at the age of presbyopia (after the age of 40). It should be noted here that by the term presbyopia we mean the difficulty the patient has in reading due to changes in the composition of the crystalline lens of the eye due to age. All people after the age of 40 have the need for presbyopia glasses, with no exception.

Covering this need can be treated in three different ways:

  • With a single pair of nearby glasses.
  • With double -stroke glasses (near and distant)
  • With multifocal glasses (distant, intermediate and nearby)

With the individual "near" couple, the ambassador is clearly covered by the need to read nearby, with difficulty focusing on the rest of the distances (middle and distant). For double -stroke glasses, the needs for close and long distance are covered. Finally, with multifocal glasses, the user has the ability to see clearly at all distances (close, distant and medium) without any problems at all.


Multifocal glasses and multifocal lenses

The first multifocal glasses made their appearance in 1959. Their design (enlarged visual fields) has varied significantly from modern polyesic glasses, which, thanks to the rapid evolution of technology, can satisfy even the most demanding customers.

Modern luxurious state -of -the -art lenses have sophisticated design, thereby eliminating diversions and limiting deformities. In addition, with their anti -reflective coatings, they protect against UVA and UVB radiation, which are harmful to the eyes and can cause various diseases, such as premature cataracts, macropathies, etc.

Multifunctional lenses are available in a wide range of types, prices and refractive markers (for a better aesthetic effect on high irregularities) depending on the needs and requirements of each customer. In addition to whites, the lenses can be photo -romatic, that is, darkening (up to 85%) outdoors depending on the sunshine, however, remaining completely white indoors. Also available are multifocal sunglasses in a wide variety of colors and coatings for those who want 100% protection from the sun's rays.

The optical -visitor is the specialist who, with his knowledge and experience, will indicate the right type of multifocal lens based on your needs to have the best possible vision. In order to ensure success, the optician needs to be aware of your habits as well as your daily life. Each person chooses the right type of multifocal glasses based on their own visual behavior.


The basic conditions for the success of multifocal glasses are:

  • The correct ophthalmologist recipe.
  • Accurate visual measurements (heights, diarrhea distance, correct slope of the skeleton, pantopic angle, etc.).
  • The choice of the appropriate skeleton depending on the stupidity and face profile.
  • The correct application of the glasses from the visual to the user's face upon receipt.
  • The detailed and proper update of the customer from the optics of his immediate adaptation to the multifocal glasses.
  • Familiarizing the user with multifocal glasses wearing them and following the optician -optical instructions.





  • Frequently Asked Questions for Multifonals


Why would I prefer multi -appearances to individual glasses?

Multifunctional glasses are made in such a way as to meet the needs of vision at all distances (distant, intermediate and close) by ensuring normal vision such as when presbyopia had not yet occurred and the normal evolution of presbyopia.

In many cases it has been observed that people who use individual glasses covering a single, specific distance (say, close), forget to take out these glasses and wear another pair that is suitable for another distance (for example, distant). In this way, however, problems such as dizziness and headaches are created. Given all of this, it is understood that it is clearly preferable to use a single pair of glasses, the multifocal.

What cost do polyesic glasses have?

Cost depends on the following factors:

  • The type of condition (refractive anomaly). The greater the refractive anomaly (high amete), the more expensive the glasses cost because of the refractive index so that they are thinner and have a better aesthetic effect. Correspondingly, at low apertrophy the cost is much lower.
  • The type and generation of the multifocal lens. For example, the choice of state -of -the -art multifocal lenses increases the cost. However, it is worth noting that if each person's needs are properly obtained and analyzed by the visuals, all types of multifocal glasses can be used with good performance and proper result.
  • The price of the skeleton to be selected.

 Are the multifocal glasses expensive?

If one thinks that with a single pair of glasses one can see at all distances, while to have the same effect it would take at least 2 or even 3 different pairs, combined with the movement of "I put into the glasses", the Multified and clearly and advantageous. To be precise, the cost of multifocal glasses compared to individual couples may be the same or smaller, depending on the type and type ofpolyesic lenses used in them.

After how long should I change them?

Presbyopia is a condition that develops over time over the age of 40 to 60-65 years. It starts at +0.50 degrees ("binoculars") and reaches normal cases up to +2.50 degrees at the age of 60-65 years. From 40 to 50 years, you need to change glasses every 2-3 years. After the age of 50, this change is made about every 4 years.

Should I constantly wear polyesic glasses?

It depends on the type and size of your refractive anomaly. In high numbers of an apertropia for long (myopia, astigmatism and hypermetropia), it is advisable to continue the use of multifocal glasses for better vision at all distances. If you still have a problem exclusively in the near vision (presbyopia), then you use polysteries only for reading, for office use, etc.

Do I need to do something specific in order to get used to them?

All you need to do is follow thecorrect instructions of your optician And from the very first day you will be able to use them.
Vardavas Opticate Customers, who have made multifocal glasses and are already gap users for distant vision (myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism), have no problem with adaptation and, in fact, almost everyone is leaving our store. their glasses.

From what age can I use polyesic glasses?

In all people, the age that usually begins to appear the presbyopia is after 40. At this point, however, it is worth noting that the precise moment of presbyopia for everyone differentiates whether it used glasses for away or not . In those with myopia or myopic astigmatism, presbyopia begins to manifest itself later, while in those with hypermetropia, presbyopia occurs earlier. Therefore, the "appropriate age" for the use of multifocal glasses depends directly on the occasion of presbyopia.

What factors influence the choice of multi -stial glasses?

The factors that affect the selection of multifocal glasses are as follows:

  • The degree of Ametropia for away and close.
  • The profession.
  • The daily activities of the user and the modern lifestyle (for example, computers, tablets etc).

Should the skeleton I choose should have a specific size?

The right skeleton for multifocal glasses has to meet some conditions for its size in relation to the deacial distance, alertropia and the user's profession to have a proper field of vision for all distances.

An important role in choosing the right skeleton is the flawless application of it in particular in the nose area to avoid fluctuations at the distance of the skeleton from the eyes. Given the great evolution of multifocal glasses technology, we can now choose closer skeletons that we used to use in the past.
