Progressive Lenses are a relatively new concept within the world of ophthalmic lenses. Now, more than ever, people are looking for aesthetically better lenses that do not make the wearer appear aged. Bifocal lenses have been the go to eyeglass lenses for people who need near as well as far vision correction. The bifocal lens wearers feel that their lenses with a start dividing line which distinguishes the part for farsighted power and nearsighted power make them feel old.
The higher pricing of progressive lenses make people choose bifocals for their needs but there are certain features which help progressive lenses offer better vision correction than bifocals.
The progressive lenses are made without lines, which means, wearing a progressive lens will not make you look old. The lenses won’t have a distinct line or special region for the near power. Many people use two glasses individually to help them look younger than they are. Aesthetically, bifocal lenses are surely a big no-no. The need for reading glasses immediately provides an image of old age.
The progressive lenses don’t have lines to distinguish the near section and the other sections. The lenses are created strategically to fit the vision of a person. The lower section has the power for reading and doing near work. The intermediate section offers clear vision at arm’s length and the top section provides clean far vision.
The progressive lenses reduce the need to carry another pair of glasses to suit the needs of reading glasses. While the sectors are invisible, the progressive lenses offer clear vision for the wearer. All you need to do is look downwards through the bottom section of the lens for clear near vision and when you’re looking at objects far away, gaze through the top section of the lens. This way it becomes easier to see with progressive lenses and afterwards it turns into a daily habit.
The progressive lenses do take time to get adjusted to, for a first time wearer; it can become a hassle to make the habit to gaze at the centre of the lens for reading at arm’s length and looking upwards for far vision. It does take a bit of practice but ultimately progressive lenses provide you a great vision, quite similar to the natural vision.
Bifocal lenses are a way more affordable option but many a times, the visual clarity offered by the progressive lenses are far better. Mostly today, GKB Opticals offers great quality progressive lenses that fit into the latest stylish eyeframes.
