English term or phrase: varifocal
Det gäller här glasögon. Hittar förvisso varifokal lins om jag googlar, men bara i kamerasammanhang, och därför undrar jag om det inte finns ett annat ord för detta när det gäller glasögonglas?

Explanation:
glas skulle det kunna vara, se länkar. (Bifocal glasses correct vision both at a distance and for reading by combining two lenses of different curvatures in one piece of glass. Varifocal glasses have the same effect without any visible line between the two types of lens.)
