If you are going to be purchasing a new pair of glasses, visit us at our optical practice, Joseph Eng, OD. At our North Las Vegas eye shop, you can receive an eye exam from one of our expert optometrists, Dr. Joseph Eng or Dr. Esther Tan, as well as purchase designer eyeglasses with multifocal lenses.
Many customers who come to our North Las Vegas eye shop purchase eyeglasses that have multifocal eyeglass lenses. These types of eyeglasses are extremely convenient because it means you can have only one pair of eyeglasses to meet your vision correction needs. For example, if you need to have reading glasses in order to read from a book or do close-up work, but also need distance lenses, you will not need to change your eyeglasses to see at different distances. While multifocal eyeglass lenses may be a bit more expensive, they can end up saving you money because you will only need to have one pair of eyeglasses. When you need more than one distance prescription in your eyeglasses, you can get bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses. Bifocal lenses are less expensive than progressive lenses. They have two different prescriptions in them; commonly one is used for reading and the other is used for distance. While these lenses are extremely convenient, they can be unattractive as there is a clear line of delineation between where the reading glasses stop and the distance lenses begin. Additionally, some customers do not like the fact that it is obvious that they need to have reading glasses because they feel it gives away their age. Progressive lenses are a great solution because they are extremely attractive. Progressive lenses can have several different prescriptions in them, but you will never see any line of delineation in progressive lenses. This means that no one will know you are also wearing reading glasses. Additionally, progressive lenses offer a wider field of vision then regular bifocals since there are no lines in the lens.
