Yes. I tried standard trifocals, but the little lines drove me nuts.
Now I have something called 'progressive lenses'. No little lines.
Distance prescription on top. Reading presecription on the bottom.
Mid-distance in the middle (state the obvious, Kat; waste bandwidth; see if
anybody notices). Full width of the lens for each focal state, and gradual
transitions between them.
It took me about 2 weeks to get the hang of it --- where to position my
head/neck for each activity --- but now I love them. Except when I'm
walking downstairs. Maybe I should get quadrifocals, with a thin strip of
distance-focus on the bottom so I can see my feet.
