Single Vision Lenses

Unlike Varifocals or Bifocals, Single vision lenses have only one prescription to correct one issue – for example if you are long sighted or short-sighted. They are most often used for only one purpose such as driving or reading.

If you’re under 40 and require glasses, it’s most likely that you’ll be prescribed single vision lenses. Ask your optometrist whether single visions lenses are the right option for you.

Varifocal Lenses by Hoya

Our eyes change throughout our lifetime. Therefore, it is possible that over time you might notice changes to your vision which affects your ability to focus at a range of distances and specially to see things clearly at a close distance.

This is due to a reduction in flexibility of the lens within your eyes, a condition known as presbyopia.

About Varifocal Lenses

You may only see subtly changes at first and they can be overcome by simply holding things further away to see them clearly or using stronger lighting. But gradually you may find that reading or seeing things on screen becomes too difficult, regardless of where and how you position them.
If you recognise this and feel that your eyes are tired and irritated, then it is time to have a through eye examination. Your Optometrist will be able to assess your vision and provide advice and guidance on the best options to ensure you have clear and comfortable vision, for whatever task.

Frames for Varifocal Lenses

Until recently, frames had to be quite large in eye size to accommodate all the areas of focus in a varifocal lens; however, technological advances now mean that even small fashion frames are suitable for varifocal lenses. Not all varifocal lens designs are the same, as some are more suitable for driving, others are for prolonged computer use and reading and some are more suited for general use. Our dispensing staff will advise you on the correct choice of design to meet your needs. You can see more about our selection of frames here…

Bifocal Lenses

As people age, it becomes more difficult to clearly focus on objects that are near – it usually starts to happen to people in their 40s. The key sign that you may be developing presbyopia is that you need to hold reading text further from your eyes to see it clearly.

Bifocal lenses are designed to give good vision to people who have developed presbyopia. These lenses combine 2 prescriptions into one lens, normally the upper part for distance, used for activities such as driving – and the lower segment for near vision, for reading or using phones or other devices.

Digital Lenses

The way we see the world is changing. Between smart phones, computers, tablets, TVs and other devices, most people spend an average of 8 to 10 hours a day looking at digital screens.

All of this screen time can lead to symptoms associated with digital eye strain such as tired eyes, headaches, blurred vision, or irritated eyes. Symptoms can present themselves in as few as two hours. Modern lifestyles can also mean we are switching between devices which can make matters even worse as eye muscles never get the chance to relax

SYNC III – Digital Lens

SYNC III lenses are designed to help relax your eyes, with a distance power for everyday use and a ‘boost zone’ at the bottom of the lens which provides an increased amount of relaxing power

EnRoute – Driving Lens

As roads become more congested and longer periods of time is spent behind the wheel, our eyes are taking the strain. Hoya EnRoute lenses are designed specifically for motorists, minimising the stress on your eyes and providing a relaxed driving experience.

EnRoute lenses are available in a single vision and varifocal design. Both designs offer enhanced vision for the far distance, the dashboard and mirrors.

Sensity – Light Reactive Lens

Sensity lenses allow you to have the best of both worlds, they are virtually clear indoors and will darken when you step outside. They provide the convenience of one pair of glasses suitable whatever the weather, with 100% UV protection too.

Ask your optometrist which of these is the best option for you…
