Bifocal & Progressive Lenses

Lenses designed with different areas of vision correction. Excellent options for a comfortable and seamless vision.

Bifocal Lenses - Design and Technology

What are bifocal lenses? Bifocal lenses are dual-vision lenses that provide vision for both- distant and closer objects. They are created using two distinct areas of vision correction, differentiated by a line crossing across the lenses. While the top area is used for seeing distant objects, the bottom portion is for near-vision.

Bifocal eyeglasses frames are ideal for people suffering from presbyopia, a condition in which they experience blurred or distorted near vision while reading. Due to this, their eyes constantly struggle to focus on books, magazines and other reading materials. This leads to headache, eye strain and fatigue. Which is why, it is recommended to wear bifocal glasses if you have the problem of reading at your arm’s length.

And, when it comes to bifocal lenses cost, they are available at a starting price of 949 INR ranging up to 2660 INR.

How Bifocals Are Fitted

Progressive Lenses

Lenses With A Latest Technology For A Sharp And Comfortable Vision

In people who are maturing (in their 40s or older), vision problems might occur sooner or later in life, resulting in reduced eye power and deteriorated vision health. And, this is where progressive lenses come like a blessing because they are considered as the most natural way for achieving a clear vision. They are multifocal lenses that are designed to offer you with a seamless progression of varied lens powers for all viewing distances.

One Lens And Three Invisible Zones

Made using state-of-the-art optical technology, progressive lenses provide greater comfort level to the wearer helping him maintain clear vision at all distances- near, far and intermediate.

Since, progressive lenses encompass a graduated range of vision varying from a distant zone to closer objects including intermediate zone, it creates annoying distortions in the lens periphery. However, with the advancement in technology, the design and production methods (computerized modelling and digital freeform manufacture) of these lenses have evolved over the years. And, today, you will find these progressive lenses with precise curves on surface of the lens and reduced peripheral distortion. This offers you with a better, clear and seamless vision.
