  • Single Vision Lenses Have One Single Focal Length

    Single Vision Lenses have a single, consistent focal length to correct a single vision condition. They correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatisms. These lenses have one amount of vision correction throughout the entire lens. In terms of single vision reading glasses, full frame readers are the most common. You’ll also find single vision lenses in half frames which allow you to look over the lens itself.  They are narrower and sit at the end of your nose for easier up-close and distance viewing.

    Computer eyeglasses are single vision lenses designed to deal with eyestrain caused by computer screens. They are one type of a selection of specialty eyewear depending on what you are focusing on.

    Progressive lenses correct more than one vision condition, with its focal power progressing from top to bottom - without a visible line separating them. They are multi-focal.
