Eyeglasses, for example, can have photochromic lenses that become sunglasses depending on the lighting conditions, from clear indoors to dark outdoors. Bifocals, trifocals and multifocal lenses combine several prescriptions into one lens, providing clear eyesight for multiple fields of vision.

Advancements in lens manufacturing and lens materials have opened up new doors for comfort and fashion in eyewear. Gone are the coke-bottle eyeglasses your grandparents wore: high-index lenses are thinner and lighter than ever before. Hate that horizontal line on bifocal glasses? Progressive lenses that eliminate the traditional lines separating the reading glasses portion from the distance vision viewing field. The point is, while eyeglass lenses are prescribed to correct all kinds of vision problems, prescription lenses have come a long way—offering you the opportunity to truly customize your eyeglasses and make a statement about how you choose to look at the world.
