The patient using such a bifocal lens has the choice of choosing the length of the lower segment which is either 25 mm or 28 mm.
Round seg: the second type of bifocal lens we want to mention is the round seg. The segment is either 22 or 24 mm in length and it provides more are to adjust between the two different types of vision easily. This type is very rarely used nowadays.
