Single Vision lenses, Multifocals, Anti-reflective, Blue light lenses and the list goes on! What do they all mean? It’s easy to get confused in the land of lenses but we’re here to guide you through all the different types of lenses so that you can determine what’s best for your needs and lifestyle.
Anti-Fatigue lenses offer relief from digital strain. The lens looks and works like a single vision lens but has a power boost at the bottom of the lens which helps provide comfort during close up activities such as looking at your phone screen.
Anti-reflection coatings are added to your lenses to reduce reflections. When the reflections are gone, light can pass through the lenses easily which leads to clearer vision. The advantage being that your lenses look almost invisible, making them more comfortable and flattering.
Blue light lenses are designed to filter the blue light emitted from electronic devices.
Do your eyes ache from staring at a computer screen all day? Most of us spend our waking hours staring at digital screens, whether it’s the computer at work, mobile phone, tablet or even the television.
Spectacle lens filters are now available that ease digital eye strain providing you with all day comfort.
Tired of squinting in the sun, scrambling to find your sunglasses then, once you’ve got your sunglasses on, stumbling in the dark when you get inside?
Maybe light reactive lenses are for you. These lenses automatically adapt to your light conditions. When you go outside the lenses will rapidly darken to reduce eye strain and squinting in sunlight.
Then when you go indoors they will automatically return to their clear state.
Multifocal lenses are designed to correct your distance, intermediate and near vision.
Our multifocal lenses utilise digital technology, which optimises vision at every point and reduces distortions.
Multifocals act as multi-purpose spectacles, offering convenience whether you’re reading and watching TV, grocery shopping or driving.
Polarised lenses are excellent at reducing glare and offer ultimate protection. They feature a filter that reduces reflected light from passing through the lens.
This filter can stop the squint and maximises clearer vision. This type of lens is especially great if you love fishing, boating or driving.
A single vision lens has the same prescription across the entire lens. An example of a single vision lens is distance or reading lenses.
Our Sun Tint choice of colours reduce the intensity of light and offer 100% protection from UVA & UVB rays. These lenses are great when viewing liquid crystal displays (LCDs) as they provide a clear view unlike polarised lenses which can sometimes make viewing LCDs challenging.
If you have a strong prescription thinner and lighter lenses are important. With EyeQ’s choice of thinner lens options you will find the right lens to make your glasses look spectacular and feel comfortable.
