With so many variations of online lenses available, it can be tricky to choose on your own, but not with the help of Reglaze4U! We know how important it is for you to find the lens that will work best and here’s why we’ve included the detailed description of each type.

The features and benefits of single vision lenses were described in our previous article, and even though they are helpful in seeing clearer at a single distance, bifocal lenses can be more convenient when it comes to multiple vision problems.

What Are Bifocal Vision Lenses?

Bifocal vision lenses are a special type of prescription suited to your unique eyes. They consist of two glass parts, upper and lower, each of which has its own optical power. Commonly, they are prescribed to people with presbyopia who also need a correction for myopia, hyperopia, and/or astigmatism. Quite often they are necessary for people over the age of 40 who notice a change in their vision, finding it difficult to focus on objects at different distances away. With bifocals it becomes much easier to look in the distance while performing a near task such as reading a phone text or menu.

How Do They Work?

Bifocal lenses are split into two sections to accommodate both far and near visual needs. They have a visible area of their glasses which can be looked through for near tasks, so people wearing them don’t have to alter their glasses depending on a need to see far or close. So, if you struggle with distance as well as close-up vision, bifocal lenses would be a good option to wear as they combine the two prescriptions in one lens and save you from having two pairs of single vision glasses. Feel free to contact Reglaze4U experts and they’ll help you find the best option.
