If you suffer from presbyopia, a condition characterized by blurred vision in the near sight, in addition to myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism you may want to consider bifocals to assist you with near and far vision. Essentially, bifocals are two lenses combined together to address both vision problems. When they were first developed, bifocals were created with one lens on top of another, so that users had to use a particular segment of the lens for a specific purpose.
Today’s bifocals offer an even greater solution, with just a small segment of the lens devoted to near vision correction and the remainder of the lens is used to correct the additional problem. The portion that is used for near vision correction can be a round, half-moon, or rectangular shape.
