Types of Prescription Lenses
Through LensesRx you are able to purchase the perfect prescription lenses necessary for your vision correction. Be it single vision driving glasses, reading glasses, or multi-focal progressive glasses, LensesRx has exactly what you need.
Single Vision Lenses
Single vision prescription lenses have one single prescription across their entire surface and are suitable in all scenarios, whether you need your glasses for driving, working or reading.
Traditional bifocals have only two ranges of vision — near and far — with a distance zone established in the upper portion of the lens, and the lower zone enabling near vision tasks such as reading located on the bottom half of the lens. The zones are separated by a noticeable line.
These prescription lenses have three different zones for seeing at varying distances — near, intermediate, and far — and can be custom made for you to accommodate your lifestyle or occupation.
Progressive prescription lenses have many advantages over bifocals and trifocals because they allow the wearer to focus at many different distances, not just two or three. Because they have no lines, progressive lenses allow a smooth, comfortable transition from one distance to another. They are a much better option for active, multitasking people.
Prescription Lenses Material
We provide a wide assortment of lens materials for you to choose from when selecting the prescription lens thats right for you. All lenses are made out of high quality plastic or polycarbonate. High index lenses are offered in super thin 1.6, ultra thin 1.67, or as thin as possible 1.74 materials. All these options are available to provide you with the ideal lens for your prescription; allowing for your lenses to be as comfortable as possible by today's technology.
CR-39 Standard Plastic Lenses
Plastic prescription lenses made from CR-39 allyl diglycol carbonate monomer combine the optics of glass with the excellent mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance properties of a thermoset material. CR-39 monomer is used for casting plastic lenses for prescription eyewear, sunglasses and other plastic products requiring high abrasion resistance and high quality optical properties.
Polycarbonate prescription lenses have many benefits and are the recommended lens material for children because of, amongst other things, thier incredible strength. Polycarbonate material was developed by the aerospace industry for use in the space program. It can also be found in police shields, airplane and bulletproof windows.
High-index prescription lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses that are as attractive and comfortable as possible. Thinner, lighter high-index lenses are especially recommended if you have a strong eyeglass prescription for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
Single Vision Prescription Lenses
Single vision prescription lenses are ideal lenses for the consumer needing a minor vision adjustment. Single vision lenses are structured to assist with vision difficulty of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and with difficulty seeing in the intermediate range. Lenses are hence offered for distance, reading or for computer. However, one lens prescription cannot accomodate all viewing fields. Single vision lenses do a great job at helping you drive easier, read clearer and have a much more enjoyable work experience when bundled with anti-reflective coatings.
Reading glasses can be obtained with or without a prescription. Basically, they provide single-vision lenses that sharpen near vision for people with presbyopia and/or hyperopia.
Single vision lenses for distance are designed for people struggling with nearsightedness. Single vision lenses allow for one.s long distance vision to be adjusted for optimal, clear vision. Single vision lenses for distance are ideal for driving, watching television and seeing the board in classrooms.
Bi-Focal Prescription Lenses
Traditional bifocals have only two ranges of vision — near and far — with a distance zone established in the upper portion of the lens and the lower zone enabling near vision tasks such as reading, located on the bottom half of the lens. The zones are separated by a noticeable line.
A flat top bifocal is a correction for distance and near vision in one pair of glasses. Flat Top 28 is the most popular bifocal form. It is also available with the bifocal portion made in a variety of widths (Flat top 35 and Executive Bifocals) to help with various close-up occupations. Flat tops are made in all lens material types.
Tri-focal Prescription Lenses
These lenses have three different zones for seeing at varying distances — near, intermediate, and far — and can be custom made for you to accommodate your lifestyle or occupation.
Flat top 28 tri-focal lenses are the most common tri-focal lens option. They offer three fields of vision: distance, intermediate and reading, with the bottom portion of the lens having a segment divided for reading and intermediate. This segment is 28mm wide, with a small portion for intermediate vision, and the remainder for reading. The remaining majority of the lens is for long distance vision adjustments.
Progressive Prescription Lenses
These lenses have many advantages over bifocals and trifocals because they allow the wearer to focus at many different distances, not just two or three. Because they have no lines, progressive lenses allow a smooth, comfortable transition from one distance to another. They are a much better option for active, multitasking people.
Standard Progressive Lenses
If you are looking for an alternative to bifocals or trifocals, standard progressive lenses will work for most people, and fit most budgets. Although the price of standard progressive lenses is higher than regular flat-top bifocal or trifocal lenses, they are still quite affordable. Depending on brand name, standard progressive lenses range in price from $175-250 for the base lenses.
