Single Vision Lenses: Are They Right for You?

Person putting in single vision lense for a more optimal health lifestyle

When it comes to choosing eyeglasses, there’s a lot more involved than just picking the best-looking frames. The frames may enhance the way you look, but it’s the lenses that are going to improve the way you see. And that means you want to take the time to make sure you select the best lenses for your own unique needs. At Hobson Eye Associates, we offer the most advanced, state-of-the-art lenses finely crafted from the highest-quality materials for greater precision and clearer, crisper vision, including popular single vision lenses for adults and kids.

What Are Single Vision Lenses?

Single vision lenses are lenses that incorporate one single prescription across the entire lens. These lenses are designed to address one type of vision problem, like nearsightedness (myopia) or farsightedness (hyperopia). And depending on your own needs, they can be ideal for correcting vision problems that occur when driving, reading, or performing a multitude of other tasks.

How Will the Optometrist Decide if Single Vision Lenses Are Right for Me?

Before prescribing any lenses, your optometrist will perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine your vision needs. At Hobson Eye Associates, we use computerized equipment to obtain the most accurate measurements so you can feel confident your lenses will provide you with the clearest vision possible. Having routine eye exams is one of the best ways to ensure your prescription remains optimized for your needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Single Vision Lenses?

Unlike bifocals and multifocal lenses that have multiple prescriptions in a single lens, single vision lenses dedicate the entire lens surface to one prescription, providing you with a very wide, unobstructed, an unchanging field of view. That means you can enjoy the optimal clarity and crisp images across your entire field of vision, all the way to the edge of the lens. Plus, today’s single vision lenses offer other lens options, like lightweight or thin lens designs, tinting and anti-reflective coating for great vision in just about any circumstance. And, as a top optometrist in Kennesaw, our practice ensures your lenses are customized specifically for your prescription, using advanced technology for superior precision and ultimate clarity.
