    A lens of similar type (matching bifocal in the case of lined bifocals) or just single vision, without a specific foci, that is close enough in power to "balance" the appearance of the other lens. Years ago I saw it written out on an Rx."Balance for appearance".

    I believe this would include balancing for weight too. You can also use a single vision lens to balance a PAL.
