What Are Single Vision Lenses?

Single vision lenses are created to correct sight at one single vision distance only since a single prescription is covering the entire surface of the lens. Single vision glasses are usually prescribed for people who are either long-sighted or shortsighted, and who require glasses just for things like reading, driving, or working at a computer. However, if your prescription offers one corrective power to see close-up objects more clearly, and a second corrective power to assist you to see those further away, a single vision lens is not suitable for you. If you want to correct more than one vision impairment with one lens, you will need to choose bifocals or multifocal lenses, often known as progressives. Nevertheless, you can also choose to buy several pairs of glasses with standard single vision lenses, one for each distance. This will only mean that you need to change glasses to do different activities. Have a look at our cheap glasses selection where you can find affordable and durable frames for only €8.


Varifocals or Single Vision? 

Single vision lenses are the proper essentials of the eyewear world, and so are very adaptable. Single vision prescriptions can be placed in any lens material, with any lens coating, and can also fit into almost every model and style of frame. This means that you can choose the frame that you prefer without having to worry about your prescription. For single vision lenses, you only need to err on the side of caution with your frame choices when your prescription reaches a value of 5 and above. If your prescription gets to 8 or higher you will need a specific type of frame suitable for larger lenses. Another good question is how single vision lenses compare with bifocals and progressives. A single vision lens has only one prescription across the whole lens, whereas a bifocal will have two, and a progressive will have three. The advantage of bifocals and progressives is that you can see perfectly using one pair of eyewear only. Progressive and bifocal lenses are generally more expensive compared to single vision lenses. Nevertheless, a single vision standard lens will give you a wider range of options when it comes to choosing your frame. On our online store, you can find 24000 myopia glasses and astigmatism glasses from well-known eyewear designers like Tom Ford and Gucci as well as our budget collection.

Single Vision for Distance

It is very common to have single vision lenses to assist you to see things that are further than an arm's length away. This can therefore be useful for activities like driving, going to the movies or watching a football game. The difficulty is frequently spotted at a young age, usually around five or six. This is because it is the age most kids go to school and realize that they cannot read the board at the front of the classroom. At SmartBuyGlasses you can find a wide range of shapes, colours, and models for kids as well.  Discover the best child eyewear on the market and our best price guarantee on all the designers' glasses.
