Most people spend a lot of time choosing the frames for their glasses because of the choices available. However, only a few realize that they also have a wide range of lenses available to them that offer protection for their eyes and give them the clearest and sharpest vision.

Your eyes and eyeglasses must work together to create the clearest vision comfortably each and every day. This is why it’s important to choose the best lenses for you.

Choosing the right lenses for your vision, lifestyle, and needs requires time and consideration. As experts in the field, we at The Spectacle Shoppe want to help you understand the importance of choosing the right eyeglass lenses to correct your vision.

Here are some of the lenses options available:

Single vision lenses
They are the most common lenses used to correct your vision. These lenses are tailored-made to match your prescription and correct eye conditions. Starting with single-vision lenses can be a journey, but more often than not, people adapt to them somewhat quickly. Going from not wearing anything on your face to having a frame sitting on your nose and ears can be bothersome for some people. It’s just a matter of choosing a lightweight frame or getting used to looking through corrected lenses.

Reading glasses
These glasses are also a single-vision lens that some people fight getting because they may convey a sign of aging, which is true (not for everyone, but for the majority of the population that needs reading correction), but it’s no reason to be ashamed of. A nice pair of reading glasses that are unique to you is far cooler than a pair from the drugstore, plus they’ve been properly fitted, and you’ll enjoy using them more.

Multifocal lenses
This lens style is more tailored to your needs, and a bifocal is a combination of distance and reading, often noticeable by a straight line or circle for reading. But more commonly used is the progressive lens which can provide three zones of vision (distance, intermediate, and reading). There are MANY types of progressive lenses with a range of price points, styles, and corridor lengths.

Everyone has differing needs when it comes to eyeglasses. Be it fashion or functional needs; the choices are many. So before selecting your glasses, you need to consider a few factors when making your decision. We suggest working out with the optician what you need these lenses for, whether it be for every day, home and office, or driving. Inform us about any visual acuities, let us know if you require proper frame adjustments, and let us know if you have any more problems or questions. We are always happy to help. You can trust us because we only want the best for you!
