Can I wear my glasses for near and far distance?
Yes, you can wear glasses for both near and far distance. Some eye conditions entail that you might need two prescription powers for both myopia (short-sightedness) and hyperopia (long-sightedness). In these cases, bifocal lenses or multifocal lenses are required. These lenses can combine multiple prescription powers so you can see both near and far. Bifocal and multifocal lenses can also be useful for conditions such as presbyopia.
Single vision lenses, on the other hand are used to correct one common eye refractive error at a time.
Progressive lenses are a very good option for comfortably combining multiple prescription powers in one pair of glasses.
