If you’re nearsighted or farsighted, you will get single vision (monofocal) eyeglasses, but what if you have both, with or without astigmatism? Then you’ll require either bifocals or trifocals from our designer eyewear in Staten Island. Or get progressive lenses for the best possible multi-focal experience. At the office of Dr. Raymond Helfand, we’re pleased to have everything you need for eyeglasses that give you sharp, clear vision at all distances.
Bifocals are typically for addressing nearsightedness and farsightedness at the same time, or either one along with astigmatism. The slight, but noticeable line that bisects the glasses gives you two zones to focus your eyes on, depending on what you’re looking at and how far away it is. In addition, it’s not uncommon for our customers to need correction for all three refractive conditions: nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The lenses on those glasses have two lines. And while both bifocal and trifocals are both good choices, depending on your needs, there is a spot between far away and up close, an intermediate zone, which they don’t address as adequately as you may want. That is one of the reason that progressives are popular. They are multi-focal in the most accurate sense of the word, eliminating the problem in that middle zone to give you improved vision all the way from up close to far away. There is, however, another plus that our designer eyewear in Staten Island has when it comes to progressive lenses. There are no lines, which means that they’re more aesthetically pleasing. Also, no one need know that you require multi-focal lenses unless you want to tell them.
Enjoy outstanding vision with the eyeglasses that are best suited to your needs and preferences. Contact our office right now and we will schedule your appointment for an eye exam.
