I have the gradated lenses. They are very nice & work well for many
activities. I also have a pair of "computer" glasses, which have a
bifocal (close-up) lens on the bottom & the top half of the lens is for
mid-range vision. (No long-range vision.) These are most comfortable
for working with a computer.
My optomitrist tells me I could have avoided these specialized lenses
for many years had I worked with anything other than computer
screens. It's all part of the cost of being in this business.
