Our optometrists will help you determine which type of lens will best suit your optical needs. There are various lens options to choose from depending on your visual needs. Available lens options include single vision, bi-focal, tri-focal, and progressive. See below to view which lens best suits your vision needs.

Single Vision: Single vision lenses have the same optical focal point or correction over the entire area of the lens.

Bi-Focal: Bifocal lenses usually have a straight visible line that defines separation of the lens. The top area is for distance vision and the bottom area is reserved for reading. Bi-focal lens serve as a great vision solution for those individuals with presbyopia.

Tri-Focal: The trifocal has three separate areas within the lens. Each area is meant for different focal distances such as, near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and intermediate viewing.

Progressive: Progressive lenses are very similar to tri-focal lenses. However, with progressive lenses, there is a smoother transition within the whole lenses from distance viewing to near vision. The smoother transition eliminates the segmented lines which allows for clear vision at all distances.
