Even the most stylish designer frames can look dated when the lenses have a harsh bifocal line. And switching back and forth between distance glasses and reading glasses is an unnecessary hassle.
Fortunately, progressive lenses correct all vision needs in a single lens, so you can see clearly at every distance: up close, intermediate (computer) and far away.
Progressive lenses are designed to have three areas (or zones) of magnifying power that changes gradually within a single lens. Each area corrects a different prescription strength and is organized by distance:
Because you now have multiple magnifying powers in a single lens, progressive lenses can take some time to get accustomed to. But once you adjust to them, you’ll be able to enjoy the convenience of using only one pair of glasses for all your vision needs.shop prescription glasses
Like anything new, adjusting to progressives can be frustrating. But don’t worry, understanding how to use progressive lenses can make it easier to get used to them.
The key is to adjust your head position to focus on something, rather than your eyes. A good rule of thumb is to point your nose toward whatever you are looking at.
For example, tilt your head up slightly to see far away, look straight ahead for mid-range vision and point your nose downward to do near work, like texting.
Here are a few more tips to help you adjust to your progressive lenses:
SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE
The progressive lens that works best for you will depend on your vision needs. For example, LC HD Enhanced View Progressive lenses give you full lens clarity and expand your prescription out from the optical center to the edges of the lens.
LC HD lenses are a great choice for multifocal lens wearers — especially those with strong prescriptions. They are known for being easy to adjust to and will fit in any frame.
You no longer have to peer over bifocals or switch out between two pairs of glasses. With progressive lenses, you can see your entire world in a crisp, clear, seamless way. One pair of glasses can do it all.
Simplify your life even more with multifocal contact lenses. Find out more about them and how they work.
