What Are Progressive Lenses?
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.
Progressive lenses are an update on bifocal and trifocal lenses. Both of these more traditional types of glasses have telltale lines in the lenses. Progressives have a seamless look. Sometimes they’re called “no-line bifocals,” but that’s not quite right. It would be more accurate to call progressive lenses “no-line trifocals.”
Who Uses Progressive Lenses?
Almost anyone with a vision problem can wear these lenses, but they’re only needed for people ages 40 and older whose vision blurs when they’re doing close-up work like reading or sewing. This condition is called presbyopia. It’s a natural part of getting older.
Even people who are nearsighted and over 40 may find that their near vision blurs when they wear glasses for distances.
