From the moment I walked in to the cool, air-conditioned premises, it was a completely different world.

I relayed my problem with office working, both close up and computer work. I also shared my previous experience with varifocal lenses, how I found them too difficult, particularly on stairs, and gave up wearing them.

Nick painstakingly surveyed my range of vision, asking many questions about my situation and how I work.

I have been using spectacles and contact lenses for many years, but my vision in my new varifocals is superb ... a life changing experience.
