  • Many people come to L&F and ask us whether or not they need progressive lenses in their eyeglasses. And why. Thus we thought we'd take a moment here to explain what progressive lenses are and how they can help you see clearly throughout your day.

    Nearly everyone will experience presbyopia as their eyes get older, typically starting around the age of 40.  Presbyopia is a hardening of the eye’s lens which inhibits our ability to focus clearly on close-up objects such as reading a book or focusing on your smartphone.  When presbyopia strikes, there are a few different eyewear options available to help your near vision come back into clear focus. 

    For individuals who are near-sighted or far-sighted, there is a unique lens designed to help you see your world in focus regardless whether objects are viewed in the distance or up close. Progressive lenses – sometimes called Progressive Addition Lenses (PALs) or multifocal lenses – are special lenses that can correct your vision to allow you to see objects in clear focus that are in your far distance focal zone, your middle distance zone, and your up-close / near vision zone.  Unlike old-fashioned “lined bi-focals”, progressive lenses achieve these multiple focal zones without any visible lines.  So they look great while helping you see clearly.

    In addition to looking great, progressive lenses are specially designed to provide different vision correction at different parts of the lens.  The top of the lens has your distance vision correction.  The middle portion of the lens progressively changes power so that your eyes can focus more easily on objects in a middle-distance zone – such as reading a computer monitor on your desk.  And, finally, reading magnification is at the bottom of the lens so your eyes can easily focus on objects up close, like reading a phone, a book, or your watch.

    And because the vision correction blends slowly from distance vision to near vision, progressive lens wearers enjoy smooth transitions as they focus on objects between the different focal zones; for example, progressive lens wearers don’t experience “image jump” which is something that happens with Lined bi-focals. 

    Most people adapt quite easily to progressive eyeglasses.  Within a few days they quickly find the “sweet spot” near the bottom of the lens for optimum near vision, and they get used to gently tilting their head up and down to help their eyes smoothly transition between distance vision correction on the top of the lens and reading magnification on the bottom of the lens. And if you lead an active lifestyle outdoors, we encourage you to consider progressive sun lenses so you don’t have keep taking off your sunglasses when you want to focus on your phone or read your watch! 

    If you wear reading glasses or progressive lenses to help you to focus up close, then you'll love our specialty Extended Vision™ Reading Glasses:  EV6 for computer work (up to 6 feet of clear vision), EV20 for home or office environments (up to 20 feet of clear vision), or the EVinfinity as your ultimate outdoor companion to see far into the distance and still be able to glance down and read your phone.  Extended Vision readers are changing the way we see our work, our workplace, and the outdoors.  And you don't need a prescription to order these unique Extended Vision readers.

    What are progressive glasses, who needs them and how do they help people see more clearly

    Progressive glasses are typically prescribed to individuals who have difficulty seeing both near and far. This condition is known as presbyopia and it usually occurs as people age. Presbyopia is a natural part of the aging process and typically begins to develop around the age of 40. If you find yourself holding things further away to read or switching glasses frequently, you may be a candidate for progressive glasses.
