WHAT ARE PRESCRIPTION LENSES?
While our eyes all look the same and function in the same way, our vision, or the way we see things, is different for everyone. This is mainly due to genetics and age. Some people are born with either near-sighted or far-sightedness in their eyes. As you age, your eyesight naturally begins to worsen. In either case, prescription lenses are what you need in order to restore your vision. Prescription lenses are customized to your exact needs so that your eyes can see clearly when wearing either glasses or contacts. The optometrists at Visions Optique and Eyecare in Scottsdale can help you with the perfect prescription lenses for your needs. Schedule an eye appointment today.
TYPES OF PRESCRIPTION LENSES
Many people who don't wear glasses don't know that there are different types of prescription lenses to fit your needs. These include single vision, bifocals, trifocals, and progressive prescription lenses. They are each designed to meet specific needs of the user in order to make wearing glasses or contacts easier on the user.
- Single vision. Single vision lenses are designed to correct vision either for near or far-sightedness. These are the most common types of lenses prescribed.
- Bifocals. Bifocals are designed to correct more than one type of vision problem.
- Trifocals. "Tri" means three in Latin, so trifocals have the power of bifocals, but they can also correct intermediate vision.
- Progressive. Progressives are trifocals, but the lenses' delineation is blurred, so there are no lines they have to "look" through for them to work.
TYPES OF PRESCRIPTION FRAMES FOR GLASSES
Prescription eyeglass frames are important in order to have the best fit and the best look for your facial shape. Thus, there are many different types of prescription frames for glasses to choose from. Some frame types include:
Full-rimmed. These glass frames completely encompass the frames.
Semi-rimmed. These glass frames have a frame around the top part of the lenses.
Rimless. These glasses have no frame around the glasses.
Low bridge. This type of frame helps to keep people's glasses in place.
Wire. This frame for glasses is very thin and can be either full or semi-rimmed.
