Single vision lenses are the most common type of lens that has only one corrective power throughout the whole lens while multifocal lenses come with two or more corrective powers. Single vision lenses are generally used for reading glasses and treating nearsightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hyperopia). On the other hand, progressive lenses have several lens powers than bifocals or trifocals and also designed for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and everything in between these two.
Order eyeglasses online with high-quality lens materials.
As technology proceeds so do lens materials. Earlier most eyeglasses are made with glass which is thicker and prone to breaking. Though glass provides a good vision, modern technology made it possible to ensure high-quality plastics as lens materials that are not only durable but also lighter, thinner, stretch-resistant and protects from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.
All our lenses are made with impact-resistant lenses.
Plastic lenses: Plastic lenses are the most common and affordable choice. It is suggested for the people with basic prescriptions up to +/-1.75. Not to mention that these lenses are lightweight, ensures longevity, and gives protection from UV rays, making it one of the best options for the majority of people including children and athletes. However, if doctors provide you a strong prescription, you should go for different lenses.
