Who invented Bifocal Lens?

A) John Adams B) Benjamin Franklin
C) James Madison D) Thomas Jefferson

Answer:   B) Benjamin Franklin



Explanation:

Benjamin Franklin has long been credited with the invention of bifocal lenses and he was the first to wear bifocal lenses. He did not produce them himself but instead had some optician in London or France make them for him to overcome Presbyopia, a condition that Franklin suffered. He was tired switching between lenses for far and near sightedness. And that resulted in inventing Bifocal Lenses.
