Many of our customers come in to see us about multifocal lenses. And as your go-to Plainview optical store we are proud to be able to offer our customers a wide selection of options. From progressives to bifocals and trifocals, we have the needs of our patients in mind and covered.As we get older, we begin to have trouble reading and this becomes especially apparent in low light situations. This is a common condition called presbyopia and most often occurs in people over the age of 40. Reading a menu in a dimly lit room can become a struggle. Multifocal lenses are the simple, painless and cost effective solution to this problem. Traditionally patients wore bifocals, and they still do in many instances. Some patients find that they are the most natural solution for their vision needs. Bifocals break the lens into two fields of vision, one for clear distance vision and another for clear near-field vision. Trifocals simply have three fields of vision.
While both bifocals and trifocals help patients to have clear and dynamic vision, some patients find that the sudden break in the lens from distance to near-field vision is distracting. That is why progressive lenses are a good third option. Just like bifocals and trifocals they are a multifocal lens with the distinct difference in the fact that they provide a seamless progression of lens strength. You can see at any distance and the transition from seeing distance and objects up close is not “jumpy” as some people find with traditional multifocal lenses.
When you visit our Plainview optical store, Optical Image, you will be working with dedicated professionals to find which multifocal lens fits you and your lifestyle the best. It is the mission of our staff to make sure that your vision is clear and healthy.
