Lenses Types for Glasses

Replacement Single Vision Lenses

If you only need glasses for one type of vision, your optician may prescribe singlevision glasses to you. People under 40 usually have this type of lens

Single vision lenses are designed to correct sight at one distance only, with a single prescription covering the entire surface of the lens.

Single vision distance is a term for lenses that correct your distance vision to see far away.

If you are nearsighted, you will need distance single vision.

We provide all of our customers with an extensive range of single vision lenses and customisable options so that your glasses will tailor to your needs.

Replacement Bifocal Lenses

Glasses with bifocal lenses are most commonly used by those with presbyopia – an age-related condition where the eyes begin to struggle to focus on anything.

Bifocals contain two lens powers; trifocals have three. Progressive multifocal lenses gradually change in power from the top half of the lens to the bottom.

Bifocal glasses contain a small reading segment in the lower part of the lens and are used when you have prescriptions for both near and far distances.

We offer the best cost-effective solution to replacing the lenses in your glasses with bifocal lenses.

 

 

Replacement Varifocal Lenses

Varifocal lenses allow you to see at any distance.

It’s because they have different sections for viewing close up and far away and everything in between.

So whether you’re driving, using a computer, shopping or reading, you can wear one pair of varifocals to accommodate all your vision needs.

Varifocal glasses, also known as varifocals, varifocal lenses, PAL,s or progressive lenses, have a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom.

Varifocal glasses contain lenses that combine your distance, intermediate, and near vision with no visible line. Looking straight ahead you can see clearly.

Varifocal lenses are prescribed when your glasses require more than one prescription for your vision.
