    Anything that has two different optics incorporated into a single lens is a bifocal as far as i know. You may be thinking a bifocal has the line that you can see. There are others they call transitions lenses which have no clear line between optics. No one else can tell you have bifocals on. Some people like them, I hated them.

    The problem I have found with bifocals is that the part of the lens for distance is not really needed but may help a bit, while the other lens for reading has a much shorter focal range. Neither lens is right for intermediate ranges like arms length or a bit longer. If wearing glasses I have to take them off when I go in a store because I can't see items on the shelf clearly through either lens.

    I may just quit wearing regular glasses altogether and just use reading glasses for fine print.
