October 31st, 2011

By category, spring hinge bifocal eyeglasses are a type of multi vision specs, as compared to single vision eyeglasses. The intrinsic value of such glasses is their ability to allow users to have freely changeable prescription powers in accordance to their specific need. This functional edge over single vision specs truly hits home and has subsequently won over millions of glasses wearers who need correction for not only one single refractive error but also two and sometimes even three. Bifocals, as a type of multi vision specs, are specially designed and made for those who need separate powers for seeing things at a distance and things up close. Brought about by the long unsatisfied need to cure duo-vision-errors once and for all and the increasingly rapid development of technology and optical techniques, bifocal eyeglasses combine two different prescription powers on the very same lenses, one for the distant vision and another for the up close one, providing an extraordinary functional value.
