Multifocal Lenses at Eyeglass World
Often those who require prescription glasses need a varying strength of lens depending on the distance the person is from the object in view. For example, a lens that assists in distance vision may not allow the same person to focus clearly when reading up close. If this is the case, bifocal or other multifocal lenses may be the right choice for you. Call to schedule an eye exam today to find out!
History of Bifocal Lenses
Benjamin Franklin is most often credited with the invention of the Bifocal lens in 1784. Mr. Franklin was tired of having to change glasses when he needed to look at something up close, and as a result he invented a single pair of spectacles that contained two lenses of varying strength for each eye.
Bifocal Technology Today
Today, the bifocal lens has evolved in many ways, not the least of which is the progressive lens. Progressive lenses usually start at the top with the wearer’s distance vision prescription strength and gradually get stronger towards the bottom of this multifocal lens to accommodate reading and other up-close vision tasks that require additional magnification. These lenses are similar to no line bifocals.
