Different type of Lenses

Lenses for glasses are either single-vision or multifocal.

Single Vision Lenses

These lenses have only one correction on them; only for reading or only for distance correction. Multifocal lenses correct more than one vision problem. They may correct for distance, intermediate, and near distances. With aging, multifocal lenses become a necessity for most people. The natural lens in the eye loses it elasticity and makes seeing near objects more difficult.

Multifocal Lenses

Bifocals: These lenses are divided in two segments. The top part is used for distance vision and the bottom part is used for close vision.

Trifocals: These are just like bifocals, except the lens is divided into three segments. The top is for distance vision, the middle for intermediate vision, and the bottom for close-up or near vision. There are visible lines that divide these sections.

Progressive no-line multifocal lenses: Progressive lenses have no visible line in the lens dividing the segments for distance, intermediate, and close-up vision. Instead there is a smooth transition between the sections of the lens. Initially, learning to see with progressive lenses may be awkward but many users of this type of lenses find them to be worth the initial trouble since they can provide useful vision at several distances.
