Executive bifocal lenses, sometimes called Ben Franklin lenses, are full-width bifocals, which gives the wearer a larger reading field of view.Executive lenses are also ideal for patients with macular degeneration. Many find them to be the best for getting the most for reading!
Often times the executive bifocals are being under utilized for reading lenses for individuals with AMD ( macular degeneration). Because of the complete spherical front surface for both distance and near, these lenses give those with a loss of central vision a much greater chance of being able to read and potentially a clearer awareness of their distance surroundings. Extra weight in the lens is a minor trade off.
And the great news is that we can make these lenses with bifocals power up to +3.5!
