Types of Sunglasses Lenses

Bifocal lenses combine a pair of optical corrections with a dividing line between them. The most common use for bifocals is for correcting presbyopia. This is the condition that tends to occur with age when the eyes become less able to focus at close distances, meaning two different prescriptions are needed. Bifocal sunglasses provide a versatile eye care solution, preventing the need for multiple pairs of sunglasses.

Varifocal lenses have a graduated section in which the power of the lens progresses smoothly from one prescription to the other, allowing a wearer with presbyopia to see clearly at all distances. If your usual prescription calls for varifocal lenses, varifocal prescription sunglasses are ideal for summer and sunshine.
