Default Does Anyone Have Problems Walking While Wearing Bifocals?

I refuse to get bifocal contacts because I hate my bifocal glasses so much. I should have just bought a pair of reading glasses.

I have problems crossing the street and walking in general when I where my bifocals. The contrast in the prescription really throws me off, maybe not as much as when I first got them but the difference is still troubling.

My head is always going up and down trying to focus in on things.

A friend told me that I've had my bifocals too long to still have this problem. I've been wearing bifocals for about 4 years.

I have no problem with my bifocals. In fact, there's very little change when I look down and up. You might want to revisit the eye doctor and find out what may be wrong.

I don't have just bifocals I have progressive lens with near, mid range and distance lens combined and it took me about 24 hours to adjust and I'd never ever want to do without my progressives, I love them.
That is why I want to try these in contacts because I know how amazing they are in glasses.

I know that there is a big difference between the two prescriptions. I can read quite well with the bifocals and can't see a word in a book with my regular prescriptions.

skatss,
It does sound like something isn't right about your prescription if you are having this much trouble.
There is a big difference in my prescriptions but my eyes automatically without my even thinking about it pick the right spot on my glasses to look through for any given situation.
It wouldn't hurt to just call and ask if you should be having these kind of problems with your bifocals if you can't spend the money to go into the drs.
