No line bifocal reading glasses.

The mention of bifocal glasses can cause one to build a mental picture of an old person, possibly Grandma or Grandpa. The idea that you need bifocals may seem damaging to your ego - you might feel like you are getting old and everyone will notice. This is just not true anymore. New innovations in lenses have produced a new no-line bifocal.

The No line bifocal lenses have three prescriptions:
1. for objects at distance,
2. for mid-range (computer distance) and
3. near area for reading.

Reading glasses often become a must for those over forty due to a natural condition called presbyopia. Presbyopia is a hardening of the eyes lens that decreases its flexibility, causing problems with nearsightedness. People who do not wear glasses for other vision issues will correct the problem by buying a pair of reading glasses. If you wear glasses normally your doctor will suggest adding a bifocal to your normal lens. Bifocal lenses have a small section of the lens made in a different prescription specifically for your reading needs. The older style of bifocal lenses had a visible line separating the two prescriptions. New no-line bifocals offer a solid lens with no visible distinction between the two prescriptions. Discreetly adding a bifocal to your regular eyeglasses is easy and undetectable with no-line bifocals.

The use of a bifocal lens can really be helpful as reading glasses. People add bifocals to their regular glasses to aid in reading, but for some people who do not normally wear glasses a bifocal lens may still be the answer. Full size reading glasses with a no line bifocal added to a non-prescription lens are a good choice for someone who has to see close-up and at a distance often. Reading glasses with no line bifocals help to reduce the fatigue of taking reading glasses on and off repetitively. They are also a plus for the person who doesn't like the look of half size reading glasses, but still desires the convenience of being able to go from near to far easily.

The option of no line bifocal reading glasses is helpful for those who wear glasses for other vision issues as well as for those who do not usually wear glasses. The invisible line allows for a more natural line of vision and transition between reading and distance vision. No line bifocal reading glasses may be the answer you are looking for when reading starts to become difficult.
