What are bifocal reading glasses?
Tue, Jun 01, 21 By : KoalaEye Optical
Bifocal reading glasses require the wearer to look up through the distance portion of the lens when focusing on a faraway object. When reading or focusing on something within 18 inches of your eyes, you look down and through the bifocal segment of the lens.

What is the bifocal lens?

Bifocal reading glasses are characterized by distance vision correction in the upper part of the lens and near vision correction at the bottom. If you need help with both, that's great. This lens is designed to facilitate the working of reading glasses and standard prescription glasses, all in one frame. Glasses are recommended when you are diagnosed with presbyopia, and bifocals are usually the first choice. But for intermediate vision, bifocals are difficult because they're not close enough for the reading part of the lens, and they're not far enough away for the distance part of the lens. Bifocal sunglasses have no magnification at the top, and the reading ability is at the bottom of the lens. Bifocal reading glasses can be found anywhere reading glasses are sold, but they can be harder to find than full magnifying lenses.

How do bifocal reading glasses work?

Bifocal reading glasses have two different lenses on the same lens. The top of the lens is your normal distance prescription, while the bottom is for close-up viewings, like reading. The two lenses allow you to alternate between them by moving your eyes up and down as needed. A bifocal lens is a type of lens that has two different areas of vision: one for close range and one for long-range. Typically, the upper section covers remote vision and the lower section covers reading. With a traditional bifocal lens, you can see the difference between the two lenses because the lower curve is a little different.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of bifocal reading glasses?

The advantage of bifocal reading glasses is a large field of vision, and they can be used with the same pair of glasses to see far, near. The cost is lower. But different areas have obvious intervals, and the appearance is not beautiful. The middle distance is fuzzy. They need to adapt to the period. Bifocal reading glasses lens is divided into two parts, and the degree of the two parts is not the same. The upper part is the mother of the flat area to see far, and the next part is the child of the reading area to see near. There is an obvious interval. The appearance is not beautiful. There is no transition area between two different areas, so its vision is fuzzy, easy to produce a 'jump image'. Long-term wearing will make people dizzy or fall down when climbing stairs.
