Are single-lenses right for me?
If you only need glasses for one type of vision, your optician may prescribe single-vision glasses to you.
You may need to have separate glasses for separate things, like one pair for seeing far away, like when you’re driving, and one pair for close-up tasks, like reading.
People under-40 mostly opt for this type of lens as they’re more likely to have just one prescription.
Your optician will be able to recommend the best lens option to suit your needs.
Cost of single-vision lenses
All of our glasses at Specsavers come with standard
single-vision lenses, free.
As well as a scratch-resistant treatment, case, and cloth. You can also choose between a range of extra lens treatments and options that can protect or enhance your glasses.
Single-vision lenses provide a correction to only one vision type, whereas varifocal lenses are lenses that have multiple corrections within the one lens, in different sections.
Single-vision lenses have one prescription. Whereas bifocal lenses have a distinct line in the lens where the two prescriptions vary – the upper part is to correct distance vision and the lower part is to correct close vision.
