Single vision lenses – everything you need to know

EFE GLASSES | Oct 10,2023

There are several things that you need to take into consideration when buying a pair of glasses. Other than the style, color and material of the frame, you also need to figure out what kind of lenses you need. If you are in need of prescription glasses, your doctor might advise you to get either bifocals, trifocals, or single vision lenses.

What are single vision lenses?

These lenses are the most common prescription glasses. These are any glasses that are meant for the correction of just one vision problem. It could either be nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. reading glasses are also single vision lenses because they are prescribed for the correction of presbyopia.

Who needs single vision lenses?

Any person who suffers from just one vision problem can correct this problem with the use of these lenses. Let’s say you have been diagnosed with hyperopia or farsightedness. You would need glasses with these lenses that would make close distances clearer. The same is true if you are found to be nearsighted, in which you will need these lenses to correct your long distance vision.

Single sision vs. progressive lenses

At first glance, single vision lenses and progressive lenses might seem to be the same. But upon closer examination, you will see that progressive lenses actually have different vision corrections in a single lens. You just don’t see the division between the different areas because these borders are flawlessly blended together, which is the trademark of progressive lenses.

Single vision vs. bifocal lenses

Bifocal lenses correct two different vision problems, and the boundary between the two corrective areas is clearly seen as a horizontal line. Bifocal lenses are often used in lieu of two separate single vision lenses with different lens grades.
