MULTIFOCAL LENSES

In this article, we define glasses as a set of frame and lens. The starting part will be focusing on multifocal lenses and the later part will talk about frame and essentially the whole glasses.

Have you ever felt like you need to remove your glasses to be able to look at the menu, books or even phone and it only gets worse along the way? This is because you are developing Presbyopia.

Rest assured, you’re not alone in this. At ages above 40 everybody starts to develop presbyopia.

WHAT IS PRESBYOPIA?

Presbyopia is a natural aging process which causes your eyes to lose its ability to focus objects or prints that are close to you (about an arm’s length). There are no specific cures to this other than a proper corrective lenses to assist you in your daily lifestyles.

WHAT IS MULTIFOCAL LENSES

Multifocal / Progressive lens is a type of lens that consist of various portions of prescriptions. It is able to assist in getting a clear vision at all distances such as distance portion for far objects, intermediate portion for laptop work and near portion for reading small prints.

WHEN DO I NEED MULTIFOCAL LENSES

If you are at the age of 40 years and above and is starting to experience a little bit of straining when it comes to reading small prints or having to move a little further just to be able to see more comfortably or even having to remove your glasses to be able to read, this could already be a sign for you to consider multifocal lenses.

WHY MULTIFOCAL LENSES

With its various portions of prescription in a single lens it provides convenience for day-to-day activities. Being able to look at far menu in a takeaway restaurant and also reply to your friends and family at the same time will save time and effort.

As we live in this new generation where lifestyles are quite hectic and the relationship of outward appearances with age is sensitive, we would not want to trouble ourselves with switching between 2 glasses all the time or having to remove our glasses whenever we are trying to read because it will be inconvenient.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FRAME FROM MULTIFOCAL: SIZE, HEIGHT, NOSEPAD 

When it comes to wearing multifocal lenses it is important to choose a suitable frame to fit the lens in. This will provide a better adaptation and a wider area of clear vision. This is due to a blur zone that is developed at the side of the lens when there are various prescriptions done in a single lens.

Look for Asian Fit designed frame. The suitable frame for a multifocal glasses should have an average frame size of 46-54mm to ensure less blurriness at the side of the glasses. The frame height needs to be of 38-41mm so the full reading zone can be included in. A frame with nose pad will definitely come in handy as it gives you more comfort to achieve full reading comfort without compromising the movement of your head.

We have a series of designs that are suitable for multifocal lenses. 

More designs can be found here.

HOW TO ADJUST TO MULTIFOCAL GLASSES

It is important to take precaution when wearing multifocal glasses especially if it is going to be your first time. You will be required to adapt to the new wearing style for example rotating your eyes down while maintaining the same head angle when reading fine prints. Furthermore, tilting your head down while walking down the stairs is compulsory to ensure walking on the right step.

Had my first visit to Potts SS2 today after hearing about it for years and my first experience definitely did not disappoint. Despite coming in close to closing time @ 8.10pm, Aquila was incredibly kind and patient in helping me pick out a frame that I absolutely love, and in that process he helped me understand what face shape and structure and what suits me and what doesn’t. He was very patient in the process and articulate in explaining to me what works and what doesn’t. The personalised eye care check up was also great - a lot of my past experienced felt rushed - Aquila really took his time to make sure that I understood what was happening and the power was suitable. He then took time to explain to me about how to care for my eyes - such top notch service. Being someone that never really felt confident to wear my current glasses out, I am so excited to receive my new pair! Thanks Aquila for your time!

It's been 3 years since my last medical check up. I typically visit local spectacle shops so this is my first time with a boutique. Pott glasses came highly recommended by people around me.The shop has many modern frames and I particularly loved the titanium series. Vivi was the one serviced me that day. Super helpful, genuine and gave me a lot of options which was important for me. She also follow up really well and she even checked in with me 2 weeks after the sale to see if it's working well for me.All in all, great experience. Will come back for my backup. Thanks!

Recently dropped by Pott Glasses SS2 branch several times to realign my glasses. Despite the fact that it was only a realignment for a pair of glasses bought (from Pott Glasses) a long time ago, Aquila was very patient and helpful in catering to my questions/requests and explaining what the issue might be.The shop space is also very bright and spacious, with sitting space to wait to be served if needed. The only issue is that the parking space at the shop itself is limited, but parking at SS2 and walking over is fairly convenient.Overall, Pott Glasses' friendly and thorough service extends beyond the initial purchase, and I will continue to recommend my friends to purchase their glasses here.

Had been wearing glasses since young but I can say that this is the first optical shop that I’m really satisfied with the overall services. The team was very attentive and patience with all the questions I have. They also provide solutions on how to manage and take care of my eyes who have very big power differences between my right and left eyes. Would highly recommend to everyone who is looking for a new glasses! 🙂

Great experience choosing glasses here and the customer service is top notch.Elijah provided an exceptional service! He gave genuine advises on which frame for which face type etc. He is very helpful and accommodating with my request. He explained the details well and unlike others, he can make good suggestions on what fits you and what is worth it. There are also follow up messages on your experience with the new glasses and offers free maintenance.Would love to recommend my friends to come have their glasses made!

Potts is the most comprehensive optometrist I’ve been to! Been wearing glasses since I was a kid and they did in-depth tests + explained things I never even knew before! I’m super happy with my glasses and the people were fantastic throughout, even the after sales service! Huge thanks to Debby and everyone else in the SS15 branch for being the best. ✨

I've been to the same branch for 3 times in a year and both my parents and I are happy with their service. We were served by different person before, and each of everyone of them are genuine to the customers. Appreciate the effort and also the patience when they spoke to my parents, and also to a person like me who wear spec for the first time.Most importantly, they are not pushy for their products, they introduce the best and most suitable products to you. You can decide what you want without feeling uncomfortable. Highly recommended! 🙂

Dropped by on a Sunday to get a pair of new glasses and I'm glad to say, the service here is very professional and really over the top. They offered their help by assisting you throughout the whole process, from eye testing to the explanations. With Louis, my purchase was a breezy experience. Highly recommended!

Louis, the attendant of the day, was very professional. He was recommended a few glasses based on my face shape, lifestyle, preferences, etc and his selections were on point.He's thorough in taking my reading and he's precise when it comes to explanation. And just like the other attendant (whom I forgotten to ask for the name while I went to pick up/adjust the glasses), he's friendly.Overall, I had a pleasant experience here and would return for its great service. 👓

My visit here was my first time and I am very happy with their service. They were very thorough in their tests and took time to explain (in simple terms) which was important to me as someone who never wore specs before. The whole process was smooth and comfortable. And you know, when it's your first time for anything, you can get bit nervous and intimidated by the unknown. But I was put at ease by their personable and easygoing approach. They also took measurements of my face to suggest several frames (and I got compliments from my colleagues on my new look). More than happy to highly recommend this place.

Have been going to many different type of optical store previously. But I will rate Pott Glasses the best one. 10/10 customer service and they provide wide variations of spectacles designs. Most importantly latest trendy designs 😆I was first attracted by the service they provide such as the staff will pick spectacles based on our skin colour, face shape, working lifestyle and outfit to suit us the best. Such exciting and attractive selling point. 😍Amazing customer service they have even though I was being picky and couldn’t make decisions with what kind of glasses I wanted. Thank you so much for being so friendly and patient, I am super satisfied and happy with the glasses. Definitely will recommend Pott Glasses to my friends and family who wants to get their glasses done. Good job and keep up the good work! ✨

Not only do they have an excellent range of glasses & contacts lens to choose from, they’re always absolutely ace in service! When I had a hard time choosing a frame, Ken recommended the pair I now wear and constantly get complemented for! I’ve also had a few (I’ll have to admit kinda ridiculous) demands for them & they’ve never once failed to come through. Loyal customer for life!

Visited Pott Glasses after seeing their amazing reviews here and indeed they did not disappoint. From the initial consultation to collecting my glasses, it was truly a great experience overall. Ken was super patient and helpful from our first visit, not to mention he has a good eye for choosing the perfect pair as well. Gave great advice and recommendations on glasses that best suit my face, style and personal preference. Currently loving my new glasses, will definitely return in the future!
