Lens Guide

A guide to lenses

 

The type of lens you’ll need depends on a variety of things such as your lifestyle, job, preference, and vision needs. Have a look below at the lenses we offer, to help you decide which lenses might be the right ones for you.

 
 

Single Vision Lenses


This lens type has one prescription that covers the whole lens. They’re typically for people with long or short sight that only need glasses for things like driving or reading – so they have clear vision for seeing up-close or far away. .

 
 

Bifocal Lenses


Bifocal lenses are divided into two parts to accommodate a combination of any two different prescriptions into one lens. One area of the lens will have one prescription (usually distance) and a segment in the lower half will have the other (usually near vision).

 
 
 
 

Varifocal Lenses


Varifocal lenses allow you to see at any distance, because they have different sections for viewing close up and far away and everything in between. So whether you are driving, using a computer, shopping or reading, you can wear one pair of varifocals to accommodate all your vision needs.
