Bifocal and Trifocal Prescription Glasses

For patients that require specific vision correction at multiple distances, where progressive lenses may not be the best option, we offer high quality bifocal and trifocal lens solutions custom designed to meet the patient’s vision needs.

Bifocal lenses are divided into two sections to enable correction at two different distances. This is usually long distance and reading distance, but sometimes computer distance and reading distance (where these are very different). The lenses usually have a straight and visible line that defines separation of the two distinct optical zones of the lens. There are some round designs available however the straight top bifocal lens is most popular.

The trifocal lens has three focal distances. In addition to the distance and reading vision correction sections, these lenses include a third focal distance, placed in the middle of the lens, which is utilised for viewing intermediate distances (usually for computer screens) that are not covered by the top or bottom sections.

The prescription and dispensing of bifocal and trifocal glasses must be done accurately to ensure the best vision outcomes are met for the patient. Our optometrist has over 30 years of experience in providing these vision correction solutions to our patients, and we work with our patients to ensure the best outcome possible for each individual.
