Types Of Glasses

Eyeglasses

There are two common types of eyeglasses.

  1. Single vision glasses:  these are typically used to correct distance vision only or reading vision only. 
  2. Multi-focal vision glasses:  These glasses are made to correct both distance and near vision.  They can be made as follows:

Bifocals – Two different lens corrections are put in glasses: top made for distance and bottom made for near.

Trifocal – the glasses are made with three different prescriptions for distance, intermediate and near vision.

Progressive Lens – These are like bifocals/trifocal; however there is a smooth transition between near, intermediate and distance vision and typically you do not see a line on the eyeglasses.
