Multifocal lens glasses (MfLs) negatively affect vision, increase falling risk and contribute to gait changes during stepping. Previous studies on the effects of MfLs on gait have focused on experienced wearers. Thus, the initial response of first-time wearers, who may face significant challenges in adapting to these glasses, is not well understood. This(More)
Multifocal lens (MfL) glasses including bifocal or progressive lens glasses are commonly prescribed to people requiring different prescriptions for near and distance viewing. Distortion of ground level objects, caused by MfL glasses, are associated with increased fall rates [1]. Blur and visual distortions during step up and step down tasks are known to(More)
