Buying glasses isn’t about choosing a frame anymore. Lens makers
have evolved the game and now offer a plethora of options. From
lens thickness to its coating, we can craft the type of lens that matches
your lifestyle. Here’s a comprehensive guide on what to expect when
buying a prescription frame from The Spectacle Site
Official Lens Partner
At The Spectacle Site, we offer top quality lenses from all over the world. We use the best products from a range of lens partners based on your prescription as well as your lens preference.
We offer a large variety of lenses types to suit your needs. A common mistake people often make when buying eyeglasses is not spending enough time considering their choices of eyeglass lens material, design and coating.
Single-Vision Distance & Reading
Single power lenses which have the same focal power throughout (top to bottom) and can be used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Most people who wear spectacles before the age of 40 have single vision lenses.
Reading glasses are made by customizing single vision lenses to your individual distance, generally between 30 and 40 cm.
These lenses are meticulously designed to incorporate distance, middle- and near- vision correction in a single lens. These lenses are personalized according to the wearer. If you have particularly unique eyes, or need bifocals but do not want the obvious line in your lens, consider progressive lenses.
Why carry two pair of glasses when you can carry one? Bifocals help take care of near- and long-distance vision by combining two prescriptions into one lens. The upper part is used to help with distance correction, while the bottom portion is to help with near vision correction. These are excellent choices for people who have use for both reading and distance glasses.
Computer and Office lenses
These lenses help mitigate CVS. Computer Vision Syndrome includes dizziness, blurriness of vision, redness in the eyes, dry eyes, double vision, and dizziness.
These lenses often contain one or more of the following features:
- Slight Magnification
- Blue Light Filter
Active Lifestyles & Children
Thin & Lightweight
All Prescription ranges
Lens Coatings and Tints
Eyeglass lens treatments help enhance the performance of your eyes and can also add to the aesthetic looks of your frame.
- Scratch Resistant
- Blue light
This coating is a standard on all plastic lenses. These lenses defend your lenses against scratches from everyday use, and helps protect them against accidental drops.
Once popular with fishermen and boaters, Polarized Lenses are the perfect companion for outdoors. Elimination of glare improves visibility and safety for your everyday life.
This coating helps to filter reflected light, which means less squinting and more comfortable vision. Anti-reflective lenses are important for people driving at night.
This coat is applied to the outer side of the lens, gives a reflective tint to the wearer and helps conceal their eyes.
These lenses offer the best of both worlds. They are clear indoors and turn dark when exposed to UV light.
Blue Light is everywhere, starting from the sun to our everyday intensive exposure to mobile and computer screens. This filter reduces the harmful blue lights to make the vision comfortable and ease the pressure on eyes.
