Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Despite reported successes with progressive addition lenses, lined multifocals remain the lens of choice for previous lined multifocal wearers.

METHODS:

To explore the feasibility of switching lined multifocal wearers to PALs, in a prospective clinical trial we interviewed 265 lined multifocal wearers, prescribed a new PAL (Varilux Comfort) and then interviewed them again to compare the lens types and patient preferences.

RESULTS:

PALs ranked significantly higher than lined multifocals for all questions and were preferred by 92 percent of the patients.

CONCLUSIONS:

PALs should be the lens of choice for previous bifocal wearers.
