Trifocals: Provides three focus areas for vision at three different distances. Two lines separate the areas.

Progressive or No-Line: A multifocal with many focal areas to give you a smooth transition from near to far with no lines separating the areas.

Occupational: Lenses designed for special needs. May be like any of the above or with other features, such as a bifocal segment at the top of your glasses, computer lenses, safety or special distances.
