Progressive Lenses - Vision 770

Progressive Lenses

As we age, particularly after the age of 40, our near vision begins to deteriorate. Progressive lenses allow you to see at all distances with one pair of glasses. They start with your distance prescription (if you have one) at the top of the lens and increase as you move toward the bottom of the lens. You simply move your head position to allow you to focus through different areas of the lens.


It’s Hard To Choose… 

Progressive lenses are a type of multifocal lens specifically for people who need corrective lenses to see distant and close up objects. To put it plainly, these lenses allow you to see clearly at multiple distances without a bifocal line.
The need for a progressive lens increases with age. By the age of 35 or 40, many people have difficulty focusing their eyes on nearby objects. This is known as presbyopia, and to compensate for this focusing problem, some people wear single-vision eyeglasses for distance, as well as reading glasses for close up.
The ideal lens will not be the same depending on whether you spend more time outdoors, on the road, or in an office.


But beware, each wearer is unique and even his activity will never represent a total guarantee of the expected efficiency and comfort. Some wearers will be very comfortable with a basic glass while others will only feel good with a personalized glass If you have a strong correction, the professional optician should therefore ask you questions about your lifestyle and use. If not, run away and go see the competitor.



Choice Criterias 

There are many factors which influence on the choice of progressive lens:

Your work habits and your lifestyle: e.g. your physical ability to lower your eyes or head, the frequency and intensity of your glances to the side, the frequency of your glances in near vision compared to to far vision. For instance, if you have an important activity in front of a screen, it is sometimes better to choose a double equipment (a pair of glasses for far vision, a pair of glasses for near vision) which will be more comfortable for you and which will also cost you much less.

From your morphology: a very large person will read at greater distance than a smaller person.

Frame constraints: the material but also and above all the height available for the glasses which must be sufficiently large.



Why To Choose The Progressive Lenses?  

The latest generation of corrective lenses are the vivid reflection of the latest advances in optical technology. Progressive lenses are always thinner, sharper and more robust . They offer a wider field in intermediate and near vision as well as a very short adaptation time.
