    Currently wear varifocal glasses but have never even contemplated trying to play golf in them. Use disposable lenses for golf, distance prescription in both eyes. Tried monovision but found the lack of clarity on long wayward drives frustrating.

    My arms arenít quite long enough for the scorecard so use a pair of cheapo reading glasses from Boots for that. But itís such a faff retrieving them from the bag 18 times. Monical round my neck here I come. At least it will give my PPís a laugh :-)
    once you get used to it itís the future!!
    I had mine made to my reading prescription but you will only have it on for a few seconds.

    I bet the assistants weren't even born the last time Lord Charles was on TV.

    This wouldn't work for the situation discussed would it? The reading prescription would be for one's un-corrected sight but we're talking about using with corrected sight via contact lenses. That would be different prescription wouldn't it? When I bought my Boots reading glasses for golf I just wore my contact lenses to the shop and chose via trial and error.

    Yes, absolutely. I don't need reading glasses to be honest without lenses in, can read all but very small print. Wearing lenses my near sight is compromised further and I need reading glasses hence my original post on options.

    That was one of the reasons I gave up wearing contacts, felt cheated that I needed to also wear reading glasses as my near sight was worse with them in!

    I need reading glasses for reading , I have had laser surgery for long sight.
    If you didnít need readers you would not need a monocle so if your lenses are stopping you reading yes your right.
