Types of Eyeglass Lenses

Single Vision
The single vision lens is prescribed if you need correction for one field of vision, either for distance or items up close. Eyeglass Lens Direct offers a number of options for the single vision lens wearer. To find out more about our selection, ask about our High Index lenses, Polycarbonate lenses, Transitions lenses, Polarized lenses, and other sun wear options.

Aspheric Lenses
Aspherics are ideal for strong prescriptions, because they are flatter and thinner. They also provide better vision than ordinary lenses and look better because they lessen farsighted eye magnification and nearsighted eye minification.

Multifocal Lenses
Bifocal lenses and trifocal lenses come in many configurations, depending on whether you sit at the computer all day, play golf, work on automobiles, etc. Ask about what you need to know to choose the right bifocal lens or trifocal lens for your presbyopia.

Progressive Lenses
The Progressive lens can do everything a bifocal or trifocal can do but without the lines. Contact us to find out how they work and why you should consider them if you have presbyopia.
