In the past, there were only two options for eyeglass wearers.
Single vision lenses contain one prescription to see far away or to see
near. Bifocal lenses contain two prescriptions to see far away and near
with the same pair of glasses. However advances in lens design
have brought about new options for both those who need single vision
lenses as well as those who need multiple prescriptions in a single
lens. More information on progressive lenses can be found on the link to
Aspheric lenses are a recent innovation that allow lenses to
eliminate much of the peripheral distortions that one may see through
traditional lenses. In addition, aspheric lenses also have less
magnification for those with high plus prescriptions thus reducing the
"bubble eye" look. Aspheric lens technology is being used in
both single vision and progressive lenses.
