Torga Flexivue Pilot - Multifocal Lenses for the Commercial Aviator

Few activities are more demanding on your visual acuity than aviation.

That’s why Pilots generally need comfortable, sharp vision in three visual zones:

  • Distance vision for observing the runway, air traffic and geography
  • Intermediate vision for viewing instruments and controls
  • And Reading vision for charts, logbooks and other near work


For pilots of light aircraft above the age of 40, Multifocal lenses are typically recommended by our Optometrists, allowing for comfortable vision in the three visual zones.


For pilots of larger aircraft, an additional vision zone would be necessary to accommodate the reading of overhead instrumentation and control panels which the traditional multifocal does not have. Torga Optical’s Flexivue Pilot lens is designed with the Commercial Pilot in mind and includes a revolutionary 4th reading zone at the top of the lens to allow for comfortable vision for overhead panels which the Optometrist can customize the location and strength of the reading zones based on your particular cockpit configuration.


The lenses are available with photochromic (darken when exposed to light), sunglass tints, anti-reflection coatings, and other lens enhancements.


Expert fitment is required. Clients in the Gauteng area are recommended to make an appointment with Optometrist Mr. Andries Janse van Rensburg at Torga Optical Mall@REDS Centurion for more information on eye testing and the dispensing of Torga Flexivue Pilots Multifocal Lenses you can contact him on 012 656 8952 

Torga Flexivue® Pilot Multifocal Lenses allow comfortable vision while reading, viewing instruments both below AND overhead, and wide comfortable distance vision.

No Line Bifocals - The future is here!

First, what are Bifocals?

These lenses have two different prescriptions in the same lens. A small portion in the lower part of the lens contains the power required to correct your near vision which is generally beneficial for reading and the top part of the lens is for distance vision.

Why no-line (blended) bifocals are better? 

Unlike the normal bifocals where you can see the line on the lens separating the two powers, the new technologically advanced bifocal lenses are smoothened out so that the line is no longer as visible to yourself and people you are interacting with. Some Bifocal wearers feel that the visible Bifocal line creates an appearance of "looking old", so invisible Bifocals can contribute to a younger look. 

What is the difference between no-line bifocals and multifocals?

No-line bifocals allow visual correction for only two distances (far and near). 

While multifocals correct for three distances:
Top part - far distance vision
Middle part - Intermediate and/or computer distance
Bottom part - for near vision, also typically used for reading 

What are the benefits of a no-line bifocal?

- There is no ridge or line on these lenses but still work like normal bifocals
Therefore a better cosmetically appealing lens
- They provide wider fields of vision for both far and near distance
- It has a low image jump compared to normal bifocals 
- They're easy to adapt to and; 
- They usually work well for patients who have been struggling to adapt to multifocals
