Do you need single vision or varifocal lenses?

Single Vision

 

Single vision lenses have one prescription power across the whole lens. They are a solution for refractive errors such as myopia or hypermetropia. If you need a lens for distance, reading or just for fashion use, you will need a single vision lens. Once you have chosen your lens thickness you will then be asked to pick an Essilor coating. We highly recommend you add a coating to add the optimum optical quality and longevity to your eyewear. 

Varifocal 

If you have more than one prescription and need a solution to help see a mix of distances; close, far and mid then a varifocal lens is for you. Your optician may also recommend varifocal lenses to correct your vision if you suffer from presbyopia. 

Essentially the Varifocal gradually combines all three prescription types in one lens, changing power from the top, middle to the bottom of the lens. This allows you to see all different vision zones in one pair of glasses as different parts of the lens are optimised for various distances. 

 

Essilor varifocal lenses include:

Struggling to understand Lens index?

 

Which lens thickness is right for you? Generally, your prescription determines whether you have a thick or thin lens, which is also represented as an index number.

As a general rule; the standard 1.5 is usually good for a fully rimmed frame and low prescription, although if you have a higher prescription or a rimless frame we recommend purchasing a thinner lens from 1.6.
