The different types of lenses

There are many different types of lenses and it can all get quite confusing when trying to find the right ones for your lifestyle requirements, to answer your needs and to correct your eyesight.

We go through some of the most common glasses lens types you might have heard of before to help you learn what they are, why they’re needed and help you find the best types of lenses just for you.

If you're 40 years old or over you'll want to learn more about varifocal lenses, these glasses correct age-related long-sightedness also known as presbyopia. We cover the differences and benefits of varifocals over reading glasses and bifocal lenses. 

Single vision lenses are for glasses wearers who have myopia, long-sightedness and/or astigmatism. 

Lenses are more than just a correction, they also have embedded technology such as photochromic lenses or sunglass lenses.  You can enhance your lenses with a lens coating to ensure they stand the test of time and that they deliver the best clarity of vision because after all, this is the main purpose of your glasses!
