The type of lens you will need will depend on your individual prescription. However, there are additional features you can add to your lenses to fit your lifestyle, job and visual needs.

Take a look at your options below.

Types of lenses

Single Vision lenses are comprised of one prescription for those who are either short or long sighted.

Varifocal lenses combine both distance and reading prescriptions. Also known as multifocals, they have multiple focus points to give you clear vision at various distances. This will allow you to switch between reading and other activities with ease.

Flexible readers work in a similar way to varifocals, allowing you to see clearly at intermediate distances without having to remove your reading glasses.

Thin & Lite

These lenses are made from a special material which makes them thinner and lighter than standard lenses.

Lighter and more comfortable to wear
Ideal for customers with a high prescription
Gives a sharper look for rimless and half rim frames

You can have your Thin & Lite lenses with single vision, varifocals, Flexible readers and Transitions®.
