At Optical Outlets our Optical store in Brandon provides optical goods, contact lenses and sunglasses as well as multifocal eyeglass lenses. Multifocal eyeglass lenses are very common for many patients who need corrective lenses. Our office stocks progressive lenses, bifocals, trifocals, and multifocal glasses in a clean, relaxing environment. For more information on these types of lenses, visit our website or call today.
Thanks to advances in optical technology, patients who wear bifocals can now have them in contact lenses. Bifocal contact lenses are lenses that act as bifocals, just like regular bifocal eyeglasses. In bifocal lenses, the lower part of the lens usually contains the power that corrects nearsighted vision while the rest of the lens covers the distance vision. Bifocals are fitted so that the line rests at the same height of the lower eyelid. Bifocal lenses have two different powers in the same lens, and usually offer correction for both near and far visions. Multifocal lenses are different lenses that provide multiple powers in one lens. Basic monofocal lenses are used for single vision and have one power inside the lens. Bifocal lenses are ideal for patients with astigmatism. Similarly, trifocal lenses contain three lens powers in one lens. Both bifocal and trifocal lenses are ideal for reading and computer vision as well as close up activities and driving.
Our optical store in Brandon also stocks progressive lenses, which work to correct presbyopia and have a seamless progression, making them line-free. Progressive lenses feature all viewing distances, which allow the wearer to see clearly both near and far, and to do computer work, reading, and fine close up work. For more information on progressives, bifocal lenses, trifocals and more, call our office today to experience the difference in customer service and quality that Optical Outlets provides.
