Single-vision lenses

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.

Are single-lenses right for me?

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.
