Lens materials and designs have evolved over the last decade. Prescription eyeglasses are tools designed to provide maximum vision performance, in general. If you're looking for the all around one pair does it all, we may have it...then again, maybe not.
Single vision , bifocal , and, Progressive Addition Lenses (PAL's) generally fulfill most peoples needs but there are occupations wherein special lens designs are more efficient on the job.
A middle aged painter, carpenter, plumber, auto mechanic, or even an office administrator who is in general well served by PAL's finds it difficult to focus when working above eye level at a near ranges. Repairing a pipe in someones basement, trimming in a window above eye level, working beneath an automobile, entering data on today's very large computer screens are tasks best served with lenses designed for those purposes . The above scenarios indicate the need for a pair of "occupational specific" prescription eyeglasses for maximum visual performance. The lenses are of special designs and generally not used for day to day wear. These are used primarily at work just like any other tool of one's trade. How many saws or hammers does the carpenter have? How many wrenches does the mechanic have?
I think I've made a point,..
sometimes there is really no one pair that does it all.
Blue blocking lenses
Over the last few years there has been considerable attention paid to the adverse effects of prolonged exposure to short wavelength blue light., often referred to as HEV (high energy visible) light. In the past HEV exposure has not been a problem with few exceptions, however, the dramatic increase in time spent on use of cell phone screens, kindles, tablets, etc, all of which emit HEV has consequences. Accumulative effects of HEV exposure contribute to cataract formation, dry eye syndrome, and other degenerative conditions .
We now advise special blue blocking coatings on all Rx eye wear
It's been well established that exposure to UV (invisible ultraviolet light) contributes to numerous degenerative conditions affecting the eyes and for that reason Dr Escher and staff advise UV filtration in all Rx eye wear
But wait! There's more...

Improved anti-reflective coatings

I often wonder how some women possess a closet full of shoes, an array of outfits and expensive purses for varied occasions yet expect one pair of glasses to be chameleonlike adapting to all occasions. Glasses are the first thing people see when they look at your face.
It's okay to be glamorous
Multiple pairs can be fun
