Wearing eyeglasses is an easy way to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism to improve your vision. Glasses offer the opportunity to switch up your look. Select from different types of frame designs, lens options, and even lens coatings for various purposes. The expert Eye Doctors at Jervey Eye Group can help you select the best eyeglasses to suit your eye care needs.
Single vision is an all-purpose lens designed to correct distance vision.
Reading glasses (also called readers) are often used to correct presbyopia and work best if you don’t need correction to see at a distance. These may be purchased with no prescription at drugstores or retail shops, or you can get a prescription for reading glasses from your eye doctor.
Sunglasses can help reduce the risk of eye diseases associated with long-term exposure to the sun, including cataracts, macular degeneration, growths on the eye, and a rare form of eye cancer. Even short-term exposure can damage the eyes, so it’s important to wear sunglasses that offer 100 percent UV absorption, are of the best optical quality, and are impact resistant.
Multifocals are designed to correct both distance vision and near vision, these lenses are used to correct presbyopia, the eye’s natural diminished ability to focus on near objects that comes with age.
Bifocals have a correction for reading on the bottom half of the lens and another for seeing at a distance on the top.
Trifocals are lenses with three different lens corrections — distance vision, intermediate vision (i.e. vision needed for working on a computer), and near vision — in one set of eyeglasses.
Progressive lenses function generally the same way as bifocals or trifocals. However, they have a smooth transition between distance and near focal areas instead of visible dividing lines.
