    As you might guess from my ID, I play music a lot, flute and other instruments. When I got my first bifocals, I commented that all the old people in my band complained that they could only read half of their music page. Whether they used the top (distance) part of their bifocals or the bottom, only half the page was in focus. HE SAID:

    “How far away is the music stand? I’ll give you a special prescription just for reading music.”

    So he did. A single-vision middle-distance prescription. I buy used glasses at thrift shops for a dollar, take ‘em to either Walmart or Sam’s Club, whichever is having a sale, and get nice music glasses for about $30. This would be a good solution for people who do a lot of use of any of the trifocal distances.
