PRESCRIPTION EYEGLASS LENS TYPES
No two set of eyes are alike. So when it comes to choosing eyeglass lenses and helping you see your best, there are a variety of eyeglass lenses options specifically designed to help meet your individual vision needs.
Single Vision Lenses are one power from edge to edge. Typically prescribed to correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia and astigmatism, they're the most common type of prescription lens.
Bifocal & Trifocal Lenses provide two or three focal points in one lens to help you see both close-up and far-away. These often have a distinct line in the lens to indicate where the prescription changes. This helps you know where to look to see near or far.
Progressive Lenses also known as no-line bifocals, provides near, intermediate and distance vision. Progressive lenses provide a much more natural vision because they have a more progressive transition between distance powers.
If any of these eyeglass lens types seem like they could help enhance your vision, speak to your Hyde Eye Care Optician to determine which lens type is right for you.
Prescription Lens Design
Depending on the type of lenses and lens treatments you choose and the lens design you need, your eyeglass lenses can easily cost more than the frames you choose — even if you choose the latest designer frames.
The better the quality of the eyeglass lenses, just like binoculars, the better you will see. If you want better vision it will cost a little more. BUT you will see more – even at night and in low light- you will see better with less discomfort.
With higher quality lens you will see better and enjoy clearer, high-contrast vision night and day.
Digital High Definition Lenses
Digital lenses are an advanced lenses which uses a computer manufacturing process that reduces higher-order aberrations such as spherical aberration that occur in eyeglass lenses which allows you to see better than regular lenses.
Digital eyeglass lenses will improve your daytime vision. You will enjoy the absolutely clear and super-precise focus, perfect contrast and more brilliant colors these lenses deliver. You will especially appreciate the benefits of digital lenses when you discover how much better you can see at night and under twilight conditions.
High quality digital lenses make a huge difference in your quality and clarity of your vision even with the same prescription. People who have bought low quality lenses at a “doc in the box” shop and then tried digital lens cannot believe the difference in the quality and clarity of their vision. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is especially true with eyeglass lenses.
