How to know type of prescription?
Below is the explanation to tell whether it is for a single vision or bifocal / progressive lenses
Single Vision prescriptions are for those who have trouble seeing either near or far (but not both). This prescription has no value in the ADD column.
|Right Eye (OD)||+1.75||-1.50||40||60|
|Left Eye (OS)||-1.50|
Bifocal / Progressive Vision
Bifocal prescriptions are for those who have trouble seeing both near and far objects. These prescriptions have value in the ADD column.
|Right Eye (OD)||+0.75||-1.00||120||+1.75||60|
|Left Eye (OS)||+0.75||-0.50||110||+1.75|
Our eyeglass prescription and contact lens prescription are not the same. Eyeglass is placed around 12 mm away from the eyes whereas contact lens is directly placed on the eyes, so significantly there's a difference in prescription.
