Single Vision Lenses

Single vision lenses are the most common type of prescription eyeglasses.  “Single vision” means having just one viewing area, and “distance vision” means that you are looking at things that are more than 30” away.  Single vision lenses are the least expensive prescription lenses, compared to multifocal, progressive, bifocal, and trifocal lenses.

Single vision distance vision lenses are for all-around use, including driving, working, sports, and regular everyday activities.  Distance vision lenses can be made with tint to create prescription sunglasses, and all types of anti-reflective coatings and services are available with distance vision prescription lenses.  Single vision lenses can also be made for reading glasses, and computer glasses.

Distance vision lenses are available in several different materials, including regular plastic, polycarbonate, and high index.
