French term or phrase: verres simple foyer; lunettes pre-montees URG
This is from a document about presbyopia written by a company that makes corrective lenses: "Dans le monde entier, 22% utilisent des verres simple foyer, 8% des bifocaux, 7% des verres progressifs, 7% des lunettes pre-montees..." My research shows that "verres simple foyer" might be "single vision lenses" and I assume that "lunette pre-montees" refers to the reading glasses you buy ready-made in stores, but I'm not sure if I should refer to these as "pre-assembled" or "pre-mounted." Thanks, Karen

English translation:single vision lenese / pre- mounted
Explanation:
Your guess is absolutely correct. The lenses, after they are prepared as per the number, are mounted on the frames. So pre- mounted is correct.

"single vision lenses" and "binocular loupes"


Explanation:
"verres simple foyer" can definitely be translated as "single vision lenses" (see first URL below)

"lunettes pre-montees" are also sometimes referred to as "lunettes loupes". (http://www.finances.gouv.fr/DGCCRF/activites/1998/986conso.h...
Eurodicautom describes such lenses (loupe montée sur lunettes) as "binocular loupes" and an example of such lenses can be found at the second URL.

Hope this helps.
