Progressive lenses are perfect for patients who require a prescription to see clearly at a distance, up-close, and everywhere in between. A common condition that typically begins in your early 40’s is called presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition where you no longer have the ability to focus sharply on near objects. An eyeglass prescription for progressive lenses is a perfect solution to solve the unwanted effects from presbyopia and without having to deal with noticeable lines within the lenses.
As we age naturally, our ability to see nearby objects and objects in the distance can decrease. Progressive lenses address separate visual needs in one lens. The progressive lens design allows for the upper portion of the lens to contain the distance viewing field, and the middle to lower portion of the lens to contain the middle and close-up viewing fields.
A huge benefit that progressive lenses have over traditional bifocals or trifocals is that they do not have the distraction of visible lines to separate the different viewing fields like traditional bifocal or trifocals do. Almost always, progressive lenses are a better option over traditional bifocals or trifocals.
