If you're getting regular headaches or your vision is blurry when you wear your glasses, you should definitely book to have your eyes tested again. In some instances your eyes will just need time to adjust if you have, within the past 2 weeks, changed to a new prescription. However if you experience any dizziness with blurry vision you should book before 2 weeks.
Single vision lenses are as simple as the name, one prescription across the whole lens. They are for individuals who are short or long sighted and are also for those who have astigmatism.
Multifocal lenses are as the name suggests, multiple prescriptions across one complete lens. This enables the wearer to see at varying distances, but only have one pair of glasses.
There are specific lenses designed to help minimise the effects of night glare. Find out more about our range of driving lenses here.
