Single-vision lenses are designed to provide a consistent optical prescription across the entire lens surface, ensuring even distribution of focus.

These lenses are particularly suitable for individuals with myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness), or astigmatism, which is characterized by the eye having a rugby ball-like shape rather than a football shape, causing light to focus at multiple points within the eye.

For those with short-sightedness or long-sightedness, single-vision lenses offer improved vision for distant objects, such as when driving or watching television. They also enhance clarity for close-up objects, such as when reading, building Lego, or sewing.

What are the benefits of single-vision lenses?

Beyond restoring your ability to see clearly, single-vision lenses can help to:

  • Relieve you of eye strain, and resulting eye fatigue

  • Boost your quality of life with improved vision and eye health

  • Protect your eyes from impact, trauma and common irritants like dust, sand and insects (alongside all lens types)

You can also easily add lens coatings to single-vision lenses to customise just for your viewing habits and make the most of your new lenses. For example, for extra UV protection, you may try polarised or light-adaptive lenses to help keep your eyes protected when you’re outdoors.
