Prescription Eyeglass Lens Types


Hey there! Today I’m going to try to simplify the process of choosing which lens type is best for you.
First, we have single vision lenses. These lenses have one viewing area throughout the lens. This corrected area can be used for far, intermediate, or near vision. Your glasses through Great Eye Glasses come with plastic, high index lenses included. But, you can always upgrade to your preference for better comfort.

Next on the list of discussion, we have bifocal lenses. These lenses have a visible line that appears just below the center of the lens that separates the distance vision in the upper portion from the reading, or near vision, in the lower portion. If bifocal lenses aren’t your favorite, we also have free-form progressive lenses.

Our thinner, lighter, no line free-form progressive lenses are easier to adapt to with their smooth vision transformations. Free-from progressive lenses allow for a wider field of vision at all distances, which virtually eliminates any lens distortion that you may have with other progressive lenses.

There are three smooth transitioning levels in the free-form progressive lenses. The upper area allows you to view things far in the distance. The center, or middle area of the lens, is used for intermediate viewing, while the lower area of the lens allows you to view closeup objects. These free-form progressive lenses are so comfortable with natural vision distance near, far, and intermediate.

In addition to those lens types, we also offer sun-darkening lenses. These are called photochromic lenses. They are a clear lens indoor, but turn dark when placed in direct sunlight to keep your eyes protected from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

There are numerous types of lenses for everyone. I hope we helped you in the process to see what lens type fits best for you. Make sure to check out some of our other informational videos, as well. See you!
