Different types of prescriptions for glasses

TYPES OF PRESCRIPTION GLASSES For Different Visual Needs SINGLE VISION Single vision lenses are used to treat just one vision problem. This could be shortsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. This means the lens is the same across the whole piece of glass. MULTI-FOCAL Multifocal lenses are for people who suffer from more than one vision problem. This type of prescription includes bi-focals and progressives which provide help with seeing at various distances. COMPUTER Computer specific glasses are made to help relieve the eye-strain caused by looking at computers for long periods of time.
