How to convert a BiFocal prescription to Single Vision (Near Vision only)?

Discussion in 'Eye-Care' started by Touch Tone Tommy, Dec 21, 2004.

  1. I'd like to order a pair of single vision glasses with only the near
    vision in them. Here's my current prescription:

    Sphere Cylinder Axis Add Prism PD
    O.D. -2.00 -4.25 097 1.25 Dist 63
    O.S. -2.00 -3.50 080 1.25 Near 60

    What do I need to order?

    Thanks in advance.

    OD: -0.75 - 4.25 X 97
    OS: -0.75 - 3.50 X 80

    This assumes your working distance for the reading glasses is the same as
    the reading distance your eye doctor used when he wrote the prescription.
    It probably is.
