Parfocal microscopes are made so you don't have to refocus when you change between magnifications. Having a parfocal microscope is convenient and is easier on the eyes.

A parfocal microscope is a microscope that stays in focus when it is switched from a higher power to a lower power. For example, if the microscope is switched from 40x power to 10x, the object stays in focus.

Parfocal microscope objectives stay in focus when magnification is changed. If the microscope is switched from a higher power objective to a lower power objective the object stays in focus.
