Refraction for Glasses

Refraction for glasses is an eye examination process to determine the appropriate prescription for corrective lenses. Single-vision lenses correct distance vision, while multifocal lenses address both near and far vision. Variations of lenses include bifocals, which enable reading through the bottom half of the lens while facilitating distance vision with the top half. Trifocals, also known as progressive lenses, offer three distinct corrections for distance vision, intermediate vision, and near vision.
