We’re excited to begin offering Bifocal Monocles!
We’ve heard from many of you that a single vision prescription lens isn’t enough – you want a bifocal lens in your monocle for even easier more convenient monocle use. In the past we’ve provide bifocal lenses as a special order, but starting today we’ve incorporated bifocals into our regular product line.
Bifocal monocles are perfect for men and women who want both reading and distance corrections in their monocles. If you’re looking up and down from something frequently then a bifocal monocle may be just what you’re looking for.
Our bifocal monocles are available in both our stainless steel and acetate frames, and in four different lens materials: CR-39, Polycarbonate, Trivex, and Glass. We recommend a glass lens for all of our prescription monocles – including bifocals. Glass is the most scratch-resistant lens material, and the number one concern we hear from customers is that their monocle will scratch.
Our bifocal lenses are in the traditional “Flat Top” style and do have a visible line where the correction changes. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to offer progressive lenses (also known as “no-line bifocals”) at this time. If you’d like a progressive lens in your monocle, then please talk with your optometrist – we’re happy to supply the frame!
Our new bifocal monocles are listed as an option on our Prescription Monocles.
As always, if you have any questions please email or call – we’re happy to help!
