Optician Q&A

Do you still have questions? Ask here

Can I wear my glasses for near and far distance?


Yes, you can.

Single vision lenses are used to correct one common eye refractive error at a time - such as myopia (short-sightedness) and hyperopia (long-sightedness).

However, for some glasses wearers, these lenses may not be sufficient because your eyes will need two prescription powers to see both near and far distance.

What you will need are bifocal or multi-focal lenses.


Bifocal glasses are the best option to ensure you can see things close-up as well as far away. Bifocals are extremely practical if you have issues with both types of vision, as you just need one pair of glasses instead of two.


Rimless and full-rim eyeglasses both have their benefits and are available at Vision Direct. Rimless bifocal spectacles will give you a clear view and rimmed glasses will prevent the glasses from getting damaged easily.


Special features:

  • See near and far objects without having to change glasses

  • Progressive bifocals and executive bifocals are both available at Vision Direct 

  • 100% UV protection 

  • Sophisticated eyewear that is functional and durable  

  • Wearable frames with soft nose pads to avoid irritation and rashes 

  • Types of bifocal lenses include half-moon, round, rectangular, and full bottom half

  • No more hassle of changing eyewear again and again as the Bifocal lens has got you covered!

  • Come in a variety of frames including playful colours and patterned frames 


Bifocal and multifocal lenses can also be useful for conditions such as presbyopia.
