What is the meaning of progressive lens?
Progressive lenses have three prescriptions in one pair of glasses. That allows you to do close-up work (like reading a book), middle-distance work (like checking out a website on a computer), or distance viewing (like driving) without needing to change your glasses. They’re sometimes called multifocal lenses.
What is the difference between progressive lenses and regular lenses?
Progressive lenses provide a transition from near, intermediate, and far vision prescription. As compared to bifocal lenses, progressives provide a wider zone of clear vision to make activities like computer use and reading easier for the wearer.
What are the three levels of progressive lenses?
There are several different types of progressive lenses, including:
- Computer progressive lenses.
- Premium progressive lenses.
- Ground-view progressive lenses.
- Standard progressive lenses.
- Short corridor progressive lenses.
- Transition progressive lenses.
Should I wear progressive lenses all the time?
However, more importantly: You should wear your new progressive lenses daily from the very beginning – from morning until evening. If your new progressive lenses still do not feel comfortable after an adaptation period of approximately two or three weeks, your eye doctor will gladly help you further.
How do I know if I need progressive lenses?
If you only have a hard time seeing things up close, you might just need reading glasses, which you use whenever you read or use the computer. However, if your vision is blurry enough that you can’t see near or far things, a progressive set of lenses might be a better option.

Why can’t I read with my progressive lenses?
The problems why you can´t read with your progressive lenses are caused by a false prescription or a false centered lens in front of your eyes. These are the measurement of your eyes (aka refraction/prescription) and how the glasses sit in front of your eyes (centration of your progressive lenses). A word in advance.
What size frame is best for progressive lenses?
The minimum fitting height for progressive lenses is 28-30mm. This will allow proper room in each part of the lens so that you can see your best, whether you’re driving or using your computer.
