PROGRESSIVE LENS (No-Line Bifocal)
If you have reached the young, but mature age of 40+ you may be experiencing trouble reading fine print. Normally optician suggest a bifocal lens that will accommodate your distance and near vision. For years patients had to get a lens that everyone could see that they needed a bifocal, not anymore! No one has to know if you need to wear eyeglasses or if you prefer to wear them for fashion. Progressive lenses provide you with all the features a regular bifocal or trifocal lens has and so much more.
Progresses lenses, sometimes called “no-line bifocals” provide a more natural correction of presbyopia, blurred near vision, than bifocal or trifocal prescription eyeglasses. By looking up you can see clearly across the room and in the distance, look ahead to view your computer in the intermediate zone and drop your gaze down to read fine print comfortably.
In the past patients were told that the had to get a larger frame to fit the Progressive Lens, not any more! Some progressive lenses are made specially for computer use which have a wider intermediate zone. Others have a larger reading portion. Optical professionals, like ourselves will assist you in choosing the perfect Progressive Brand to accommodate the many fashion styles and frame sizes you may select. Progressive lenses are also available in a wide selection of materials, including regular plastic, polycarbonate lenses and even glass (which is not recommended).
For first time Progressive Lens wearers, when you pick up your glasses, you my need some time to adapt to this amazing feature. Some patients take minutes to adapt while others may take a few days.
