WHAT ARE PROGRESSIVE LENSES?
Progressive lenses are the ideal solution for correcting vision changes caused by presbyopia. They are designed to help wearers see clearly with one pair of glasses whether they are focusing on objects up close, on the horizon, or somewhere in between.
HOW DO PROGRESSIVE LENSES WORK?
The magnifying power of progressive lenses changes gradually from point to point, providing the correct lens power to see objects clearly at every distance: up close, far away, and all those points in between.
WHY INVEST IN
Progressive lenses offer seamless vision at every distance, unlike bifocals, which only have two lens powers, creating zones of clear vision. This means progressive lenses don’t have that ugly “bifocal line.” But their advantages go beyond better aesthetics.
While bifocals enable wearers to see clearly up close and at a distance, mid-range objects remain blurry. Not only that, but bifocal wearers must endure abrupt transitions when changing their range of focus. This phenomenon, sometimes called an “image jump,” can be annoying at best and nauseating at worst.
WHAT MAKES VARILUX THE BEST PROGRESSIVE LENS?
Not all progressive lenses are created equal. Varilux progressive lenses offer sharp vision at every distance—even in dimly lit conditions—and eliminate the blurriness, off-balance feeling, and low-light issues of ordinary progressive lenses. No wonder Varilux is the #1 progressive lens brand recommended by optometrists and opticians.*
