Standard single vision lenses - Included in frame price

All Specsavers glasses come with free standard single vision lenses, scratch-resistant treatment, case and cloth. Extra lens treatments and options are available that can protect or enhance your glasses.

Progressive lenses - $200 for 2 pairs

Progressive lenses combine three different prescriptions in one clear lens, allowing you to see comfortably at all distances. As we get older, the crystalline lens at the front of our eye loses elasticity. This makes it harder to focus on things close up, such as reading, and the eye also struggles to focus quickly between near and distant objects. Progressives can solve this problem.

Standard progressive lenses - $200 for 2 pairs

Easy to adapt to, they have clear vision at distance, intermediate and close-up, but there is some soft focus at the edge of your vision.

Premium progressive lenses - $375 for 2 pairs

These fit a larger range of frames than standard lenses, and feature a wider field of clear vision at distance and intermediate than standard lenses. They're also easier to adapt to.

Elite progressive lenses - $550 for 2 pairs

These feature a wide field of clear vision at distance, intermediate and near, with minimal soft focus. They are very easy to adapt to.

Bifocal Lenses - $200 for 2 pairs

Offering distance and near vision in one lens. Bifocals have a small segment at the lower part of the lens containing your near vision area.


It can take a short time to get used to multifocal lenses, so at Specsavers you can try a pair for three months with no obligation.

If you can't get used to them, you can swap your multifocals for bifocals or two pairs of glasses - one for distance and one for reading - and we'll refund any price difference. No quibble, no fuss.
