Single Vision Lenses
Lens TypesSelecting the right type of eyeglass lens is very important to ensure that you have the right lenses for your vision needs. Below are some considerations:
SINGLE VISION LENS: With this lens, the prescription of the lens is of only of one power and can only be used to correct one vision problem (either distance or near vision). Single vision lenses can be made for either reading and for seeing far distances, but are not suggested to use when frequently alternating between the two.
STRAIGHT TOP BIFOCAL: This Lens is designed to offer vision correction for both near and far. The SEG (or Bifocal Window)) is for near viewing; the rest of the lens is for distance. Bifocal lenses are a good option for multiple uses like driving, reading and giving lectures or presentations.
STRAIGHT TOP TRIFOCAL: This versatile lens corrects near, intermediate, and long distance viewing. The top portion of the SEG (Trifocal Window) is for intermediate viewing; the bottom, for reading and the remainder of the lens is for distance viewing. Great for reading, driving, sewing and just about any situation where your viewing needs vary frequently.
PROGRESSIVE LENSES: The Progressive Lens is the best lens for COMPLETE VISION CORRECTION AT ALL DISTANCES – near, intermediate and far. Progressive Lenses are the more cosmetically appealing than bifocal or trifocal lenses, as there are no visible reading/intermediate seg windows. Progressive Lenses are designed to gradually change your prescription from distance at the top to reading at the bottom of the lens. This offers greater comfort to the wearer’s eye, as the Progressive Eyeglasses allows you to adjust your focus from one viewing distance to another naturally and easily simply by moving your eye up and down, and this dramatically reduces eye fatigue. These are great for all uses and all lifestyles and best of all – they’re discreet. With no visible lines, no one will know you are wearing multi-focal lenses!
