If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have an astigmatism, you only need single vision eyeglass lenses to address the one visual issue. But what if you have two or all three? Here at North County Optical, we’re pleased to offer three excellent choices when it comes to multifocal eyeglasses: bifocal, trifocal, and progressive lenses. With our eyeglasses in Plattsburgh West, we have everything to meet your eyewear needs.
Bifocal lenses, which are easily identifiable by the slight line that runs horizontally across the lenses. One half is for seeing more clearly up close and the other for far away. It’s a simple matter of whether you look above or below the line, which is there to guide you. It’s not uncommon to be both nearsighted and farsighted, and our eyeglasses in Plattsburgh West address both effectively. Astigmatism, which causes blurred vision at all distances, may be a visual deficiency that you have in addition to nearsightedness and farsightedness. And if so, trifocal lenses are available. They are very similar to bifocal lenses, except that there are three sections and two lines.
As helpful and useful as bifocal and trifocal lenses are, there is an option you can get at our store that takes what those lenses do to a more optimal level. Progressive lenses, which are sometimes referred to as no-line bifocals, give you a truly multifocal visual experience. Bifocal and trifocal lenses can leave the intermediate distance between up close and far away less sharp than you would prefer. But with progressive lenses, that is not a problem. In addition, because they don’t have the lines on them, no one has to know that you are wearing multifocal lenses at all. They also have the benefit of a more streamlined look. It’s a great selection from our eyeglasses in Plattsburgh West.
Call us in advance and schedule an exam with our eye doctor so that you can be assured of having the prescription that is perfect for your current vision requirements. Whether you decide on bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses, you’re going to see much better and with greater clarity thanks to our eyeglasses in Plattsburgh West.
