This lens type has one prescription that covers the whole lens. They’re typically for people with long or short sight that only need glasses for things like driving or reading – so they have clear vision for seeing up-close or far away.
If you only need glasses for one type of vision, your optometrist may prescribe single-vision lenses to you. You may need your glasses only for driving or only for reading. Your optometrist will be able to recommend the best lens option to suit your needs.Frames for single-vision lenses

Single-vision lenses provide a correction to only one vision type, whereas multifocal lenses are lenses that have multiple corrections within the one lens, in different sections.
Single-vision lenses have one prescription. Whereas bifocal lenses have a distinct line in the lens where the two prescriptions vary – the upper part is to correct distance vision and the lower part is to correct close vision.
All Specsavers glasses come with standard single-vision lenses plus a scratch-resistant treatment. You can also get extra lens treatments and options to protect or enhance your glasses.
If you need separate glasses for distance vision and reading, then bifocal lenses might be an option for you as they’re designed to accommodate two different prescriptions – usually distance and up-close vision.
