What are bifocal lenses?
Single vision lenses cater for one prescription type, which is perfect for when you only have one prescription, but what if you have different needs for close up and long-distance viewing?
You can of course have multiple pairs of single vision glasses, however, bifocal lenses are a cost-effective and convenient solution to be able to accommodate both of your prescriptions with one pair of frames.
Bifocal lenses can eliminate the panic of lost reading or driving glasses when you need them most.
Typically made with close up vision at the bottom of the lens and long-distance at the top, the two prescriptions are met in the middle by a visual seam, which allows you to centre your vision on the area of lens you need at a given time.
Lensology’s bifocal reglazing service is a cost-effective solution for you to be able to keep your favourite frames and have new prescription bifocal lenses fitted at a fraction of the high street price.

The different types of bifocal lenses
There are a few different types of bifocal lenses to choose from, with different qualities and features that suit different lifestyles and needs. They include:
- D Seg Bifocal lenses
- Round Bifocal lenses
- Executive or split lenses
What’s the difference between bifocal and varifocal lenses?
Bifocals lenses often have a line across the middle, and cater for two types of lenses, with long-distance usually at the top and up-close at the bottom. These are often, but not exclusively, prescribed to wearers with age-related conditions such as presbyopia, whereby eyes begin to have to work harder to focus on anything up close.
Varifocal lenses can cater for multiple prescriptions, with lens zones rather than a distinct top and bottom dividing line on the lens. Distance viewing is still towards the top area of the lens, but as the item being looked at gets closer, the wearer gradually moves their eyes lower to a different part of the lens which keeps the object in focus.

Compared to varifocal lenses, Bifocal lenses are often the more cost-effective choice.
Varifocal lenses are a more advanced lens with a less noticeable difference in prescription types, often coming at a much higher price point than bifocal lenses.
