TYPES OF PRESCRIPTION LENSES

Everyone has unique vision correction needs due to varying degrees of near or far-sightedness and astigmatism. Today's lenses are customised using your prescription and your chosen style. Three common types of prescription lenses are:

  • Single vision lenses: These lenses have one strength from edge to edge and are generally prescribed to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.

  • Progressive lenses: These lenses provide two or three focal points in one lens, offering smoother transitions and broader fields of view without switching your glasses. 

  • Progressive bifocals: They have two focal points - one for close-up vision for reading, texting, and all close detail work and one for distance vision to see far away.

  • Progressive trifocals: They offer three focal points for near, mid-range, and distance sight, to perform close-up tasks, mid-range for seeing computers and dashboards, and far away view. The lens power distribution facilitates performing all vision tasks efficiently without adjusting the lens. The lens is split into three sections: the bottom part for near vision, the middle part for medium range, and the top for distance vision.
