What are progressive lenses?

Progressive lenses, also known as progressive reading glasses, are a type of multifocal eyeglass lens that provides a seamless transition from distance vision to near vision.

Eliminating the visible line found in the bifocal or trifocal lenses, a progressive lens or progressive reader is designed to correct presbyopia, a condition that occurs with age and makes it difficult to focus on close objects. Progressive lenses offer a more natural and gradual shift in prescription, allowing wearers to see clearly at all distances without the need to switch between different pairs of glasses.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between bifocals and progressive lenses?

A: Bifocal lenses have two distinct areas of vision correction: the upper portion is for distance vision, while the lower portion is for near vision.

These areas are separated by a visible line. Progressive lenses, on the other hand, offer a seamless transition between different lens powers, providing correction for distance, intermediate, and near vision without any visible lines. This allows for a more natural and gradual shift in prescription, catering to a wider range. Click Here learn more about the differences between bifocals and progressives?

Is it better to get bifocal or progressive lenses.

A: Whether bifocal or progressive lenses are better for you depends on your visual needs, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

The choice between bifocal and progressive lenses should be made based on your daily activities, comfort with lens adaptation, aesthetic preferences, and budget. Some people prefer the simplicity and lower cost of bifocals, while others opt for the more modern and versatile progressive lenses. It's important to consult with an eye care professional who can assess your vision needs and help you decide which type of lens is best suited for you. They can also provide guidance on the best lens designs, materials, and coatings to enhance your visual experience.

What is the disadvantage of progressive glasses?

A: One potential disadvantage of progressive glasses is the need for an adjustment period.

Some wearers may experience difficulty adapting to the seamless transition between different lens powers, which can cause issues with depth perception and peripheral vision. Additionally, the cost of progressive lenses is typically higher than that of single vision lenses, which may be a consideration for some individuals. Finally, the areas of clear vision in progressive lenses are smaller than in single vision lenses, which may take some getting used to for certain wearers.

Can you wear progressive readers all day?

A: Yes, you can wear progressive readers all day. However, it may take some time to adjust to the seamless transition between different lens powers.

Initially, wearers may experience some difficulty with depth perception and peripheral vision, but with continued use, most individuals find them comfortable for all-day wear. It's important to follow the advice of your eye care professional regarding the adjustment period and any specific recommendations for wearing progressive readers.
