This type of lens is an all purpose lens, mainly used for either distance
or near vision and is available in all materials.
Lined bifocals are used for viewing both near and distance within the
same lens; a visible line separates the viewing areas.
Progressive (No-Line Bifocals or PAL's)
Progressive lenses have an invisible bifocal with a transition zone, which
allows the patient to see; distance to near and everything in between,
without the distracting visible line, giving them the appearance of single
vision lenses. Progressive lenses are available in most materials.
Lenses which allow the patient to see three different distances in one
lens, typically distance, intermediate and near, all separated by a line.
Computer lenses are similar to a progressive lens, having no line; however,
this lens has no distance portion. Computer lenses or Occupational lenses
are designed for near and mid-range viewing. By adding a tint and/or anti-reflective
coating, can reduce computer syndrome eye fatigue.
Reduce the amount of magnification of the eye, produced by higher plus
prescription lenses. The curve of an Aspheric lenses flattens towards
the edges producing thinner edges and better acuity as the eye moves from
the center of the lens toward the edges of the lens.
