At Fabulous Optical, we’re here to ensure that you are always seeing the best you possibly can. In order to make that goal a reality, we recommend a yearly eye exam so that we can be certain your prescription is up to date and offering you optimal vision correction. In addition, if you have more than one visual need, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, we provide bifocal and multifocal lenses so that you can see both up close and far away with more sharpness and clarity. However, it’s really with progressive eye lenses that our Jamaica Queens eyeglasses store can give you the most benefits regarding your eyesight at all distances.
Traditional bifocals, which are usually identified by a line that runs horizontally across the middle of the lenses, give you excellent vision up close and at a distance. But they do not adequately address the intermediate range between. But with progressive eyeglass lenses from our Jamaica Queens eyeglasses store, you will get outstanding vision correction at all distances, from to close to far and everything in the middle. Progressive lenses are sometimes referred to as no-line bifocals. This is because there is no visible line as there are in traditional bifocals. But the truth is that progressive eyeglass lenses really are truly multifocal. They fully address nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism equally well.
In addition, if you have presbyopia, which is a visual issue that is sometimes confused with farsightedness, progressive lenses are also very helpful. With presbyopia, you have difficulty seeing up close, but unlike with farsightedness, presbyopia is caused not by the curvature of your cornea but as a by-product of the natural aging process. It affects people beginning at the age of 40. Multifocal lenses are effective in treating presbyopia, but progressive lenses do a more efficient job. If you have a current bifocal or multifocal prescription, we can turn that into one for progressive lenses right here at our Jamaica Queens eyeglasses store. If you have not had an eye exam in over a year or if you have an outdated prescription, just call us in advance to arrange an eye exam first.
