Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

"Best" when it comes to the different types of glasses is really a relative term. While it is true that modern "no line" or Progressive bifocals strive you give you clear vision a many different distances (focal lengths) they, as you have discovered, don't work for everyone.

Dr. Rick :

With your history of stroke and diabetes as well as the fact that you are still having dizziness and headaches after 4 months probably means that these type of glasses will not work for you.

Dr. Rick :

I agree with you. I think you will do best with everyday bifocals or, perhaps, even trifocals.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
