Traditionally, bifocals and trifocals have resolved this problem for countless people with presbyopia. The inclusion of two or three separate corrective fields give you sharp near, distance, and intermediate vision by giving your eyes separate segments for each field. Unfortunately, the separate segments make for a somewhat unnatural viewing experience, while also making it obvious that you have "old eyes."
No-Line Multifocal Glasses from Our Woodstock Optometrist
Progressive lenses are a type of multifocal lenses that don't include separate segments for near, intermediate, and distance vision. Instead, they offer a progressive gradation from your distance prescription (located toward the top of the lenses) to your near prescription (located toward the bottom). Simply flicking your eyes upward or downward gives you access to the ideal corrective field for your needs. Our Woodstock optometrist can have these lenses made to suit your individual pupil positions. We can also advise you on how to get accustomed to seeing through these new lenses.
