YOU WILL NEED TO CHOOSE

  • Type of lenses
  • Lens package
  • Transition lenses
 

TYPES OF LENSES:


Single Vision – The simplest and most common form of prescription lenses. The whole lens will contain a single uniform power to make a correction. This means glasses with these types of lenses can be used for only one of three things:

  • Near vision – eg. Reading 
  • Intermediate – eg. Computer work
  • Distance – eg. Driving

Bifocals – A single lens with two segments - normally with the upper part of the lens for distance and the lower part for reading. Although bifocal lenses do have a separating line, they still allow users to have a single pair for both reading and distance unlike with single vision lenses where one frame maybe required for distance and another one for reading.

Ideal for people who:

  •   -  Have had bifocals before 
  •   -  Are recommended bifocals by an optician
  •   -  Want one pair to see both near and distance
  •   -  Have different prescription for near and distance

Varifocals – A single lens which allows clear vision at near and at distance without the separating line of bifocal lenses.

Benefits varifocal lenses have over bifocal lenses:

  •   -  Cosmetic benefit of having no visible separating line in the lens
  •   -  Less distortion between near intermediate and distance vision 
  •   -  Improved clarity peripherally 
  •   -  Easier adaption for first time wearers

Fashion use/frame only – Select this option during checkout if you do not want prescription lenses. The frame will come with standard demonstration lenses.

This could be if you are buying:

  •   -  the frame for fashion use only
  •   -  have an alternative arrangement for your lenses elsewhere
