A single vision lens, or single focal length lens is a lens prescribed to correct for one focal length or to make your sight clear at a specific distance away from you. A single vision lens might be just for reading but not driving or vice vera.
A lined bifocal lens means two focal length lens. Above the line is usually for seeing far away and below the line is for seeing things that are close to you. Over the years this lens has decreased in popularity because our daily activities require more than this lens has to offer. It is a dated product and it is not available with the latest technology. Some people don’t want the appearance of the line on their lens because it makes them feel old. A lined bifocal still has advantages and will be an option for many years to come.
A lined trifocal lens means three focal length lens. Similar to the bifocal, but it has 2 lines across the lens creating 3 different focal lengths. Above the second line is for seeing far away, between the two lines is for things about at arms length, and below the bottom line is for reading. Often this lens is for those who are unable to wear a progressive multifocal.
Progressive Multifocal is best described as a variable focus lens. This is a high tech lens capable of correcting your vision from distance to near and everything in between with a natural gradual adjustment from top to bottom. This lens is comfortable to wear and offers the flexibility of adjusting to your needs.
Occupational lenses are a few different lens styles. Usually, this lens is requested by someone working in an unusual situation when the focus of the lens needs to be in a unique position. For example, a pipe fitter or a welder might need to see at arm’s length above their head. We offer lenses to accommodate this unique need.
