G'Day, Great Vision | 7 Reasons to Consider Free-Form Single Vision Lenses

Did You Know? A rich and fascinating heritage is behind the development and use of single-vision prescription glasses.

Dating back to ancient times, various records, secular historical accounts, and even artwork depict the use of rudimentary visual aids. Inventors and nobles alike–through time and across the globe–are heralded as custodians of invention when it comes to single-vision eyeglasses.

Interestingly, no one person is credited with the invention of eyeglasses—their development has indeed been; curation by committee.

However, the developments continue! Today, state-of-the-art, single-vision lenses are manufactured through a process known as Free-Form, digitally designed production. What does that involve? And how much improvement does this mean for your basic pair of reading or distance-vision eyeglasses? Here are seven ways that your single-vision lenses are vastly improved in this day and age.

7 Benefits behind Free-Form Lenses

Let’s dive into the optical wizardry that sets Free-Form Single Vision Lenses apart. Through cutting-edge software and manufacturing processes, these lenses correct your vision at every angle. The result? Reduced distortion, enhanced peripheral vision, and a natural visual experience will surely leave you amazed.

But let’s expand on this!

Free-Form Digital single-vision prescription glasses offer several key advantages that set them apart from traditional types of glasses:

ONE ~ Precise Customisation

Free-Form Digital technology allows for specific customisation of the lenses based on the wearer’s unique prescription and individual needs. Unlike traditional stock single-vision lenses, which have a predetermined front and back surface curve, Free-Form Digital lenses are digitally designed and optimised for each individual, resulting in sharper and clearer vision.

TWO ~ Wider Fields of Vision

The advanced digital design of Free-Form Digital lenses reduces distortion and aberrations, providing a wider field of vision. This means wearers experience enhanced peripheral vision and a more natural visual experience.

THREE ~ Reduced Distortion

Traditional lenses can sometimes cause visual distortions, especially in higher prescriptions. Free-Form Digital lenses minimise these distortions, ensuring a more accurate representation of objects and surroundings.

FOUR ~ Thinner and Lighter

Free-Form Digital lenses can be made thinner and lighter compared to traditional lenses, resulting in improved aesthetics by reducing lens thickness and enhancing comfort for all-day wear.

FIVE ~ Personalised Fit

With Free-Form Digital lenses, frame measurements and individual facial features are taken into account, ensuring that the glasses fit perfectly on the wearer’s face. This personalised fit adds to the comfort and stability of your new glasses.

SIX ~ Versatility

Free-Form Digital single-vision lenses cater to a wide range of prescriptions, from nearsightedness to farsightedness and astigmatism. They are suitable for various vision correction needs and are popular amongst discerning prescription glasses wearers. If you are heavily reliant on your prescription glasses every day, upgrading your single-vision glasses to a digital design lens will be the best investment you ever make for your vision.

SEVEN ~ Visual Clarity

Thanks to the precise customisation and reduced distortion, Free-Form Digital lenses offer exceptional visual clarity, allowing wearers to see objects with more definition and sharpness.

Free-Form Single Vision Lenses Combine Comfort and Style

Who says you can’t have both comfort and style? With Free-Form single-vision lenses, you get the best of both worlds. These lenses are thinner and lighter, ensuring all-day comfort and producing two excellent benefits straight off the bat.

If your prescription often results in that classic “coke-bottle” look and sticks out from the frame, you need to discuss a Free-Form lens design for your next pair of glasses.
