Single Vision vs Progressive
The most common type of prescription lens is single vision. Its what many of us picture when we think of glasses, a single prescription power throughout the entirety of the lens. It can be used to correct myopia ( nearsightedness ) or hyperopia (farsightedness).
The most common usage for single vision lenses is for reading, however over the counter glasses have identical prescription power in each eye. For a reading experience tailored to the varying strengths both your eyes schedule a comprehensive eye exam at SoLo Eye Care.
While many people can manage with a single pair of glasses some of us need help to focus at both close and far distances; this is where progressive lenses can be a great solution! Unlike single vision lenses progressives are a multifocal lens; meaning varying prescription strengths allow the patient to focus at near and far distances.
