  • Progressive glasses, also known as progressive lenses or no-line bifocals, are fitted with a type of eyeglass lens that provides a gradual change in lens power from top to bottom which allows you to see clearly into the distance and focus clearly up close without the visible line you see in traditional bifocals that separate the two different power corrections.

    Who needs progressive glasses?

    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.

    Benefits of wearing progressive glasses

    Progressive glasses offer many benefits over traditional bifocals. One of the main benefits is that they provide a natural and seamless transition between distance and near vision. This eliminates a phenomenon known as "vision jump" which used to occur with traditional bifocals when your eyes would "jump" from distance viewing into near vision magnification - which could be rather jarring and frustrating.  Additionally, progressive glasses do not have the visible line that is present in traditional bifocals separating the two different powers. This means that you can wear them in any situation and nobody needs to know that you are wearing lenses that help you see far away and focus clearly up close.

    Lastly, progressive glasses can also be made with a variety of lens materials and coatings, such as polarized, scratch-resistant, and anti-glare coatings. This means that they can be customized to suit your individual needs and lifestyle.

    Computer Glasses. What and Why

    Reading glasses can help to see your phone clearly. But then your computer screen gets blurry and you can't see the person approaching your desk unless you take them off - or worse - slide them down your nose so you can peer over the top of the frames.  Extended Vision™ reading glasses are custom-made computer glasses that are optimized for the most comfortable vision for your up-close and middle-distance vision zones - producing a seamless, clear view of everything from 6 inches to 6 feet with our EV6, or up to 20 feet with our EV20, or wherever you need to see with our EVinfinity.
