    Focal point on prescription glasses?

    Hi,

    I just want to ask you, how important is the placement of the lenses focal point on prescription glasses?

    Just got my new glasses and I'm wondering, if the focal point shouldn't be higher, to be exactly in front of my eye (iris)? Now it is exactly in the center of each of my lenses - as I was told in the store I've bought them from.

    Do you know what is the standard placement in lenses, or does it vary?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Thomas,

    VERY important!!!!

    Even if there is a 'standard', it can't meet everyone's needs. Every glasses wearer needs our glasses to be adjusted to fit our own face, to our own specific focal point.

    I have gotten brand new prescription glasses through which I could not see. I truly believed they got the prescription wrong. But it turned out that I needed the glasses to be adjusted to my facial structure, then they sat straight on MY face. And then I could see clearly.

    If your optician can't help you, call other opticians until you get a knowledgeable one. I think this can be remedied for you. DON'T let anyone tell you that your glasses don't need or can't be adjusted. You have your own specific line of vision. We all do. Glasses frames can be and need to be adjusted.

    Let me know how you are doing with this and if you get it resolved.
