Multifocals on a bike?

Multifocals on a bike?

Post by dakardrix on 23rd May 2010, 23:45

Anyone using multifocals on a bike? Popped in at a new optometrist and she said it is all that will work for me as I battle to see far AND on GPS... At R6,000 (Med aid only pays about R2k of it) I am not convinced! But need to do something... maybe it will work on a road bike but I am suspect about GS riding??

Drix - if you subscribe to the practice of "stand up, look up and open up", you only need to see far Very Happy

Mmm... I also thought through that one, but it relies on peripheral vision, which is now out of focus. Biggest problem though is reading GPS.

Tried contacts years ago, didn't like it then. Also, with contacts and multifocal requirements they seem to give you one strength for the one eye and different type and strength for the other. Apparently it could work or not, depending on the individual.

How about I buy your GPS? This will solve the problem of not being able to see the GPS... Cool

Sit 'n omgekeerde vergrootglas op die GPS, dan verklein hy mos alles en dan kan jy lekker ver lees! Very Happy

Jy kan altyd jou GPS koppel aan 'n draagbare dataprojektor, dan kan jy kies hoe ver jy wil kyk... of dalk moet jy net jou bril bietjie skoonmaak!

Ek ry met multifocals. Dit vat nogal 'n tyd om gewoond te raak om die grond nie heeltemal in fokus te he^ nie - geloof en vertroue raak groter....volg maar net die voorwiel :-)

Ek ry ook met Multifocals (op die teerpad) en sal nie weer teruggaan na die enkel focals nie. Ek moes kies - of ek sien die pad of die GPS - toe kies ek die GPS. Na 'n paar warm klappe van die pillion af is ek oortiuig daarvan dat dit veiliger is om liewer met multifocals te ry. Shocked
