We all know and recognize bifocal lenses for the visible line running through the bottom half of the lenses for patients who have trouble reading fine print with their glasses. There’s a better option available for that very purpose that eliminates the very obvious lines of traditional bifocals: “progressive lenses”.
They not only hide the fact that you need reading glasses, they also provide a better correction of presbyopia than the bifocal and trifocal prescription glasses of yesteryear. They provide a truly seamless progression of lens powers so you can see at all distances. Imagine:
- You look up to see across the room or at a distance
- You look ahead to see your computer screen or the person in front of you at an intermediate distance
- You gaze downward to read or write, comfortably able to see fine print closely.
In a nutshell, you get all your vision solutions in one pair of glasses, they are more comfortable for you to wear than both bifocals and trifocals and… no one has to know!
