Progressive Eyeglass Lenses
Progressives improve upon the features of Bifocals. They are also called no-line bifocals. Progressive lenses aren't only an option for correcting nearsightedness and farsightedness, they can also correct an astigmatism.
- It provides clear vision at all distances (rather than at just two or three distinct viewing distances).
- It eliminates "image jump" caused by bifocals and trifocals. This is where objects abruptly change in clarity and apparent position when your eyes move across the visible lines in these lenses.
- Because there are no visible "bifocal lines" in progressive lenses, they give you a more youthful appearance than bifocals or trifocals.
What are Progressive Lenses?
PALs are a type of multifocal lens specifically for people who need corrective lenses to see distant and close up objects. 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. They don’t have that age-telling "glass line" that bifocal lenses are known for. You can customize your progressive glasses with the lowest price at Optical Factor.
How do Progressive lenses work?
As we know, bifocals have just two powers — one (in the top half of the lens) for distance vision, and a second (in the lower half of the lens) for near vision.
Trifocals go one step further — they have a third power for seeing objects clearly at arm's length. This "intermediate" power of a trifocal lens is located in a thin horizontal zone between the distance and near power zones.
Progressive lenses, on the other hand, have many more lens powers than bifocals or trifocals, and there's a gradual change in power from point to point across the surface of the lens.
That means less squinting when you look up from your phone to the scenery around you.
About Premium Progressive Lenses
If the price is a factor, opt for standard progressive lenses. However, if you have a complicated prescription or need customized lenses, premium progressive lenses are the better option. You can look forward to a broader viewing area and less visual distortions when you select premium progressive lenses since they are custom-made for your eyes.
This type of progressive lens accommodates small frames, so if you’re looking for more compact eyewear, then this multifocal lens option is the way to go.
