Progressives Benefits

There are several benefits of progressive glasses that you should consider if you need them, and they can save you the hassle of having to use different types of contacts or bifocals. Progressive glasses offer the benefits of a more youthful appearance and eliminate the lines on bifocals or trifocals. They offer a convenient way to see at all distances, and the technology used to make them creates seamless glasses that look just like normal glasses. The lenses can also be designed to be thinner than the standard bifocals, and those who have progressive glasses can easily see at both close and long distances. Progressive glasses can be fashionable just like regular glasses, and they can be customized with a wide range of different prescriptions.

They can be calibrated
A main benefit of progressive glasses is the fact that they can be calibrated so that you can view both long and short distances based on your unique viewing angle. This allows for more accurate viewing and helps you see across all distances seamlessly. The lens will feature three viewing areas: distance, intermediate and near, and each viewing area in the lens is calibrated for you. This calibration helps you see more clearly no matter where you are looking, and it is much more convenient than bifocals which are often not calibrated at all for the wearer. The area of optimum lens power will be measured based on the position of the wearer’s eyes, and the glasses will feel natural and be comfortable to wear.

There is no “image jump””
One of the main problems with bifocals is that images can seem to “”jump”” when the eyes move past the boundary between the near and far parts of the lens. This can make it difficult to see and every dangerous if the wearer is involved in an activity where they need to be able to see clearly such as driving or operating machinery. This image jump is avoided with progressive glasses because they are designed to seamlessly transition between the near and far viewing areas of the lens. The wearer can change their focus between far and near objects and will be able to do this easily without the image changing.
