What are the best frames for bifocals or progressives?
Multifocal glasses are used to see far, near, and in between all in one pair of glasses. Frame choices are important for multifocal glasses to get the best vision.
√ Select the frame size similar to your current ones.
√ Shorter frames with round edges are ideal (horn-rimmed, retro wingtip, circular, and oval frames).
√ Avoid Aviator and Cat-Eye frame styles (the bottom portion of reading vision may be cut off).
√ Adjustable rubber nose pads can help your glasses stay in place.
√ Glasses with spring hinges increase durability.
√ The lens height is at least 28 mm for the fitting height (segment height).
√ Check the weight of the glasses, the lighter the better.
