EYE ADVICE Optometry Clinics


(2) Extended Focus Lenses for Near Work

These lenses allow for a gradual reduction in power as one looks through a higher point in the lens. There are thus no visible lines in the lens. Through a lower point in the lens, they enable near vision at the normal reading distance, whilst vision through the top of the lens enables vision at intermediate distances i.e. at about 50 to 100 cm. These lenses are relatively new and are ideal for VDU use.

(3) Bifocal Lenses

These types of lenses have been in use for many years. They are particularly useful when there is a refractive error for distance vision as well. They are also useful for those individuals who have normal distance vision but do not wish to wear a half-eye frame. This will still enable them to regularly shift their focus and see clearly in the distance. In those cases where the lenses would mainly be used for close work, a wider reading segment would be preferred.
