Lens Selection Assistance

Single Vision Lenses

Single Vision lenses provide correction to one focal point, either distance viewing or near viewing, and can correct hyperopia (far-sightedness), myopia (near-sightedness), or presbyopia (a diminished ability to focus on objects as a result of ageing).

These lenses require a distance OR reading RX. These lenses are recommended for clients who are using their frames for reading, driving or daily use of vision correction.

Bifocal Lenses

Multifocal lenses involve more than one prescription correction per lens. There are a number of types of multifocal lenses namely bifocals, progressive or varifocals, and trifocals.

Bifocal lenses provide a distinct line segment between the different fields of vision. Generally the upper part of the lens is used for distance vision while the lower part is used for near vision.

Progressive Lenses

Multifocal lenses involve more than one prescription correction per lens. There are a number of types of multifocal lenses namely bifocals, progressive or varifocals, and trifocals.

Progressive lenses provide a smooth transition in the lens from distance vision to near vision. There are no line segments differentiating the fields of vision.

These lenses require your prescription to have a distance and reading (ADD) to be produced.

Transition Lenses

Photochromic lenses are eyeglass lenses that are clear (or nearly clear) indoors and darken automatically when exposed to sunlight. Other terms sometimes used for photochromic lenses include "light-adaptive lenses" and "variable tint lenses."

The most popular brand of photochromic lenses sold in the United States are Transitions Lenses (Transitions Optical). Because of this, some people — including some eye care practitioners — refer to photochromic lenses as "transitions lenses" or "transition lenses.

**Transition lenses are available in BOTH single vision and Progressive lenses.

Anti-Reflective Coating

An antireflective or anti-reflection (AR) coating is a type of optical coating applied to the surface of lenses and other optical elements to reduce reflection. In typical imaging systems, this improves the efficiency since less light is lost.

This coating is recommended for ALL prescription lens clients. **Clients who purchase 1.74 Hi Index lenses MUST purchase AR coating. This hi Index lens requires the AR coating to be produced.
