Advantages of Progressive Lenses
Why progressive lenses? You may be maturing, but “mature” doesn’t have to mean “old.” If you are in your 40s (or older) and are having trouble reading fine print with your glasses, progressive lenses offer a younger-looking appearance and other advantages over the lined bifocal lenses your parents wore. Progressive lenses, sometimes called “no-line bifocals,” eliminate the visible lines of traditional bifocals and trifocals and hide the fact that you need reading glasses. In this article by Mountain Eye Care, we will take a look at the advantages of wearing progressive lenses.
Progressive lenses are easy to adjust to
Because of the gradual shift between lens strengths, progressive lenses are very easy to get used to, and make for a natural transition if you are already used to wearing prescription glasses. Instead of an abrupt jump to a different focus like bifocals offer, gradual lenses allow your eyes to move more smoothly and comfortably between prescription strengths, for a more natural and easy feel.
Progressive lenses offer precision vision correction
Progressive lensed glasses offer precision vision correction under many different circumstances, even if you need two or more different prescriptions in one pair of glasses. Everybody’s vision is different, and gradual lenses allow you to see clearly in a variety of situations without switching glasses.
Lens separation lines are not visible with progressive lenses
The trouble with bifocals is that the line between the two different strengths of prescription lenses can be highly visible and distracting, and some patients may never get used to it. Gradual lenses do away with the line, which makes your new prescription easier to adjust to, with minimal time and discomfort.
Progressive lenses eliminate the threat of eye fatigue
Though some patients get used to the line in bifocal and trifocal lenses, many patients never adjust to it, and the visible line can cause undue eye fatigue that may even contribute to the deterioration of your vision. Progressive lenses eliminate the threat of eye fatigue for a more comfortable experience.
