What Are Progressive Lenses?

Progressives (or multifocals, no-line bifocals) are lenses with 3 zones of focus but no hard lines.
Althought you get the benefit of having no line in your lenses, Progressives will have areas of distortion on either side of the lens.

Who Needs Progressive Lenses?

As we age, It becomes more difficult to look at objects that are close to our eyes. This is a very common condition called Presbyopia. Most people first notice when they have trouble reading fine print, or when they have headaches after reading, due to eyestrain.
Bifocals were invented to alleviate this condition by adding a reading power to the bottom half of the lens, so that people could see distance as normal, then look down for a reading power.

What Are The Different Types Of Progressives?

No Line Regular Progressive

These are the standard Progressive Lenses.

Beginner’s Progressive

These progressives have a wider intermediate and reading viewing area, but pull back on the prescription slightly. These are only recommended for first time progressive users.

No Line Office Progressive

These progressives have 2 viewing areas, Intermediate (up to 14 feet away), and Near (reading distance). These are meant for office distances, not for driving or normal outdoor use.

No Line Computer Progressive

Like the Office Progressives, these have 2 zones, one for intermediate (up to 4 feet away), and one for Reading distance. These are not for use while driving.

Sport Progressive

These lenses are tailored toward sports like golf, where you need to be able to see distance, but also need to be able to mark your score or read.

Drive Progressive

Specifically for driving, these lenses have a wide distance area, so that you do not need to turn your head while driving in order to see the mirrors.

Mobile Enhanced Progressive

These progressive lenses are tailored to mobile and tablet users over 40 year of age. They have a wide viewing area for distance and near vision.

Premium Progressive

Similar to our regular progressives that provide distance to near vision and everything in between, this premium design provides wider viewing areas, ideal for experienced progressive users.
