useful information

Lens types

Single Vision

Single vision lenses correct one field of focus at either distance (driving), intermediate vision (computer), or near vision (reading). They have one single power over the entire surface of the lens.

Varifocals

Varifocal lenses are for customers who need both distance and reading correction. They allow the wearer to see objects at all distances, offering a smooth gradual progression of power on the lens to correct distance, intermediate and near vision. These lenses are more cosmetically appealing to wear than conventional bifocal and trifocals as there are no visible lines on the lens.

Trifocals

Trifocal lenses correct distance, intermediate and near vision with a visible line that separates each segment of the lens.

Bifocals

These have two different powers in the lens. Each power is located in a distinct area of the lens bordered clearly by a visible line. The top of the lens has the distance correction (driving, watching TV) and the bottom half the near vision (reading).

Digital free form lenses
