Single vision lenses

Are single-lenses right for me?

If you only need glasses for one type of vision, your optometrist may prescribe single-vision lenses to you.

You may need to have separate glasses for separate things, like one pair for seeing far away, like when you’re driving, and one pair for close-up tasks, like reading.

People under-40 mostly opt for this type of lens as they’re more likely to have just one prescription.

Your optometrist will be able to recommend the best lens option to suit your needs.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between single-vision and multifocal lenses?

Single-vision lenses provide a correction to only one vision type, whereas multifocal lenses are lenses that have multiple corrections within the one lens, in different sections.

What is the difference between single-vision and bifocal lenses?

Single-vision lenses have one prescription. Whereas bifocal lenses have a distinct line in the lens where the two prescriptions vary – the upper part is to correct distance vision and the lower part is to correct close vision.
