Thanks to advances in optical technology, patients who wear bifocals can now have them in contact lenses. Bifocal contact lenses are lenses that act as bifocals, just like frame bifocals. They split the lens in half in order to have different powers in one lens. In bifocal lenses, the lower part of the lens usually contains the power that corrects nearsighted vision while the rest of the lens covers distance vision. The lenses have two different powers in the same lens, and contain correction for both near and far visions. In the case of multifocal lenses, they provide multiple powers in one lens. Basic mono-focal lenses are used for single vision and have one power within the lens. Trifocal lenses contain three lens powers in one lens. Both bifocal and trifocals are ideal for reading and close up activities. These types of eyeglasses in Throggs Neck are also good for driving.
Progressive lenses work to correct presbyopia and have a seamless progression, so that they are line-free. Progressive lenses feature all viewing distances in their eyeglasses in Throggs Neck, which allow the wearer to see clearly both near and far, and work best for those who work on computers. Metro Optics sells these and other lenses to help correct your vision and so that you can see clearly. If you notice vision change, call us because your prescription may need to be updated.
