Flat Top Bifocals

Progressive No-Line Bifocals
The multi-focal lens of choice, progressive no-line bifocal lenses are most like natural vision and offer three ranges: near, intermediate and distance. These lenses provide all the benefits of traditional bifocal and trifocal lenses,and more. The no-line lens is cosmetically more appealing and easy to adapt to. These lenses can be made from the full range of lens materials, and are available as an occupational lens as well as a traditional lens.

Occupational & Hobby Eyewear
Some people find that their regular glasses are great for most of their day, but are not quite right for their job. To avoid reading-related discomfort, you can get special glasses for work that have the reading segments placed higher up in the lenses.
Safety glasses are a must for those who spend a lot of time working with power tools, as debris can fly into the eye and damage it.
For those whose hobbies require long periods of time working at very close distances, a separate pair of reading glasses may be helpful in meeting the visual needs of each eye.
As people are spending more time in front of a computer, they are finding that their eyes are focused at a very specific range for long periods of time. Computer lenses are designed specifically for the distances associated with computer use: the intermediate and close-up zones. Computer-specific eyewear will give you the best correction for these distances, helping to avoid eyestrain.
