Single Vision Lenses
If you struggle with clear vision for near or far objects, you might require prescription lenses. These eyeglasses, known as single vision lenses, correct only one type of vision or refractive error. At Iconic Eyecare, we provide single vision eyeglasses to enhance your vision. Call us to schedule an eye exam with Dr. Brar, our eye doctor. Our office serves patients in and around Surrey, South Surrey, and White Rock, BC.
What Are Single Vision Lenses?
Single vision lenses are designed to correct one type of refractive error. For example, you might wear them if you're nearsighted. Nearsightedness allows you to see close-up objects clearly, while distant objects appear blurry. Single vision lenses address nearsightedness, ensuring clear vision for distant objects. This distinguishes them from lenses that correct multiple refractive errors.
What Vision Problems Do Single Vision Lenses Correct?
These lenses can correct various refractive errors, including nearsightedness (myopia) and farsightedness (hyperopia). Farsightedness causes clarity issues with close-up objects, while single vision lenses for astigmatism correct blurred vision at varying distances due to irregular corneal shape. They are also effective for presbyopia, making it easier to focus on close objects as you age.
Single Vision Lenses vs. Other Prescription Lenses
Single vision lenses specifically address one refractive error. In contrast, other prescription lenses can correct vision at multiple distances, such as progressive lenses, bifocal lenses, and trifocal lenses. If you struggle with clarity at different distances, these multifocal lenses might be more suitable.
