Are Single Vision Lenses Outdated For Modern Vision Needs?

At Twenty 20 Vision, we ensure that you have access to the right optical products to suit your needs and lifestyle. We understand that finding the right eye lenses and optic support can be complicated. With so many lens types, support options, and additional coatings available, deciding on the right eyewear can be difficult. 

Single vision lenses have been a popular optical support option for many years. However, they may be outdated for today’s demanding vision needs. 

Book an appointment at Twenty 20 Vision today to be sure you have the right lenses for your needs. 


What Are Single Vision Lenses?

Single vision lenses are a type of eye lens that is prescribed to treat one specific vision issue, for example, farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism. 


What Are The Problems With Single Vision Eye Lenses?

While single vision lenses serve their purpose, they can be found lacking in a number of ways: 

  • Digital Devices  

Many single vision lenses don’t provide support for immediate or near distances where people spend hours looking at their phone screens, computer screens and other digital devices. 

  • Multiple Vision Problems 

Often, people have more than one vision problem and require more support than single vision eye lenses can provide.

  • Presbyopia 

Presbyopia develops as people age and makes it difficult to see objects up close. This cannot be corrected by single vision lenses alone. 

If you find that your single vision lenses aren’t working as they used to, make an appointment with Twenty 20 Vision to see our expert optometrists. 

The good news is that with technology progressing at such a rapid pace, there is now a brilliant solution. Accommodative Support lenses are surpassing single vision lenses incredibly. 


What Are Accommodative Support Lenses?

Accommodative support lenses have a small, invisible area at the bottom of the lenses that helps with near-distance support.


The Benefits Of Accommodative Support Eye Lenses

Accommodative support lenses are favoured by many lens wearers and optometrists for several reasons: 

  • Clear Vision At Any Distance 

Accommodative support lenses can provide clear vision at near, middle and far distances, so there is no need to switch between different pairs of glasses for different activities.  

  • Convenience 

For many, accommodative support lenses eliminate the need to carry multiple pairs of glasses, making it easier and more convenient to keep track of their eyewear. 

  • Reduced Eye Strain 

Adjusting focus between distances can cause eye fatigue. Accommodative support lenses help improve visual comfort for those who regularly need to switch between distances.  Accommodative support lenses work more closely with natural vision, making them a preferred, low-risk, low-side-effect option.
