Progressive & Bifocal Lenses
Progressive and Bifocal lenses allow for multiple prescriptions in one lens (known as the ADD), allowing you to see both near and far. Progressives include the added benefit of a no-line lens with an intermediate distance, which is useful for tasks such as computer usage.
Digital Progressive Lenses
Our Digital Progressive lenses provide the ultimate visual clarity with greater prescription accuracy.
These progressive lenses will provide everything that you need in a pair of glasses - you'll never have to switch back and forth between reading and distance glasses. Unlike bifocal lenses, progressive lenses have no line and are optimized for not only reading and distance, but also for a third intermediate distance, such as your computer screen. The digital lens allows for a wider intermediate corridor that minimizes peripheral distortion.
Our progressive lenses… now going premium!
Our Premium Progressive lenses promise a wider field of vision than our regular progressive lenses (Digital Progressives), making them ideal for first-time progressive wearers and higher prescriptions.
This premium kind of progressive lenses provides sharper, more natural vision across the lens, with less peripheral and reading-area distortion than our standard digital progressive. The near-natural vision corridor offers a quicker adaptation period for those new to progressive glasses.
Exceptional Lens Design
Both our Premium Progressive and Standard Digital Progressive lens options are designed with digital freeform technology, which optimizes the lens to a custom fit for your prescription and individual viewing habits.
Segment Height (Seg)
With our Digital Progressive lenses your SEG height is calculated with our proprietary algorithm based on your prescription and frame selection. That means there is no need to enter this measurement when ordering your progressive lenses from us.
Adapting to Progressives
The process of adapting to a new prescription and progressive lens design can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks - even if you have previously worn progressive lenses. Try to not go back and forth with your old prescription. Wear your new glasses at home and at the office to start, then driving as soon as you are comfortable with your new glasses. If you do not feel any improvement after three days of wear, please contact us for assistance.
Steps to adapting to progressive lenses
While adapting point your nose at the object you are looking at rather than moving your head from side to side. It is normal at the start for objects to the side to seem out of focus; as you adjust the blurred sensation will disappear.
1. Look straight ahead and make sure that your vision is clear.2. Pick up a book or magazine. Look down your lens and point your nose at the text.3. Extend the printed material out to where you normally read and gently move your head up and down. You should notice a smooth transition between all distances.4. Now, move the material without turning your head and notice that the print is less sharp. Point your nose in the direction of the material, raise your chin up slowly, and see the print glide into focus.
By following these steps you will soon be reading, using your computer, watching TV, and driving with the ultimate crystal clarity.
The traditional Bifocal lens includes both near and far distances, and includes a segment line that separates the two. The upper section of the lens includes the distance prescription, while the lower section of the lens includes a nearer, reading prescription.
