    Hello...

    Cuando se habla de lentes para ver, lentes para la corrección de la visión
    como se especifica la graduación??
    es decir, mi graduación (de lentes) no es adecuada.

    Yo pensé en ..focal lenght... pero hay alguna palabra que refiera a ese termino de otra manera?

    Gracias por leerme...

    Yo diría, "My prescription isn't right/my glasses are the wrong prescription." Or also, "strength": "These glasses aren't strong enough/these glasses are too strong."

    Si refieres a lentes bifocales, es posible que estés pensando en progressive lenses: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_lens

    they are not progressive. I cannot see far away :)
    I read something about wrong prescription but I thought it was a short answer :)
    Thanks...

    One way to refer to la graduación de lentes is simply 'power' which is short for 'optical power'.

    Strength is another popular way of coveying the same notion:
