Since every individual has different requirements, lenses are available in various types. Additionally, lens manufacturers are creating custom lenses to ensure that the needs of each user are met. These lenses are made from different materials, including plastic, glass, and polycarbonate.

Types of Prescription Lenses

When it comes to choosing the best prescription lenses for your glasses, you have several options available. Two popular choices are single-vision lenses and progressive lenses.

Single vision lenses

Single-vision lenses are the most common type of prescription lenses. They have uniform power throughout the entire lens, making them a great choice if you have a single vision problem, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness. They are also relatively affordable and easy to find.

progressive lenses

On the other hand, progressive lenses are a more advanced type of prescription lens. They offer a smooth transition between distance, intermediate, and near vision without any visible lines on the lens. This makes them a great option if you have presbyopia or need correction for both near and far distances. While progressive lenses are more expensive than single-vision lenses, they offer greater convenience and functionality.

No matter which type of prescription lenses you choose, it’s important to ensure that they are properly tailored to your specific vision needs. With the right prescription lenses, you can enjoy clear, comfortable vision and see the world with precision and style.

Guidelines to consider before purchasing and getting your new glasses fitted:

Several measurements and considerations go into making a pair of glasses to ensure that your vision is optimized through your corrective eyewear. When glasses are purchased in person, your professional eyecare provider will measure and take into consideration the following:
Segment or OC height: Where the centre of the lens will be positioned in the frame depending on how the frame sits on your face.
– Vertex distance: The distance between the frame and the front of your eye
– Pupillary distance (PD): The distance between each eye individually to the middle of the frame – combined measurements are sometimes less accurate.
– Pantoscopic tilt: This refers to the tilt on the front of the frame.
– Wrap angle: The amount of curve the frame has.
– Base curve: The curvature on the front surface of the lens.

The prescription that is issued to you by your optometrist is one of the parameters that are used to fabricate your lenses. To ensure optimized clarity and comfortable vision with your new glasses, it’s important that these fitting parameters are also taken into consideration. In addition, frame size, width, bridge contour, temple length, lens thickness and lens type must also be assessed for best vision and comfort.

Once your glasses are fitted, fabricated, and dispensed, it’s recommended that the frame is periodically re-adjusted to ensure best fit and comfortable vision. It’s also important to ensure the comprehensive warranty provided is addressing any issues that may come up during the lifetime of your glasses.
