I wear glasses – varifocals and reading glasses.  At the moment I wear my varifocals using the distance part to focus.  I’m not sure if this is the best approach.  Also, should I set the diopter with these glasses on?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I’ve heard conflicting views and I’m also struggling with getting sharp focus every time.

I wear glasses – no line varifocals as well… I wear my glasses to look through the lens and focus… I also set the diopter with my glasses on and have not noticed any issues.  The only real issue I have is focusing on the correct thing (person) during sporting events when things are moving very fast.
