Single Vision Lenses function as all purpose lenses for persons under the age of 40 years, who have normal accommodation.
Bifocal Lenses on the other hand, are the most commonly used lenses by people over the age of 40 years. The upper portion of the lens is focused for distance vision and the bifocal portion is focused for close-up vision.
Trifocal Lenses have an added segment to provide clear vision at arm's length distance, the area that is usually blurred with bifocals.
Progressive Lenses are quickly gaining in popularity. The "no-line trifocals" provide continuous clear vision at far, midrange and near without showing any lines.
Ultra Thin High-Index Lenses are the lightest and most comfortable lenses for adults. They allow light to be bent differently so that stronger corrections are thinner than when made with regular plastic. They include UV protection.

Transition Lenses are photochromic plastic lenses that are clear indoors and dark outdoors, and provide total UV protection. They are also available in thin lenses with anti-reflective coating for maximal comfort.
Tinting of the lenses adds extra comfort, especially during sunny days.
Anti-Reflection Coating eliminates annoying reflections and the glare of night driving as well as eliminating glare from a computer or television screen.
