Lens Types

-Bifocal lenses are precription lenses that correct for two specific distances, distance and reading, in one lens.  The line seperating the two prescriptions is visible.

-Progressive lenses are prescription lenses that correct for several focal points including distance, intermediate, and reading.  The prescription in the progressive lens "progresses' from the distance correction to the reading prescription, assuring a smooth transition from focal point to focal point.  Blink Optical uses only premium progressive lenses such as Varilux and Shamir.

-Specialty Computer lenses offer a visual solution for those who require intermediate and reading help specifically.  People who need to transition from an intermediate focal point to a near focal point (computer users, artists, mechanics, and musicians) frequently.  This lens has a wide area alloted to both reading and intermediate and is called Shamir Office.
