visual impairment due to presbyopia

Why choose progressive lenses?

Wearing the wrong glasses can cause problems in addition to discomfort or poor vision. It can cause headaches and even migraines, due to the need to squint and strain your eyes to see better.

In addition, for people with presbyopia (people who have difficulty seeing close up due to aging eyes, especially after the age of 40), each person's needs for life activities will be different, so the choice of lenses should be the best convenience for comfort in daily work as well as maximum eye protection.

In case you have to see far, such as driving, playing sports, or doing outdoor activities, you need to wear glasses with degrees to see far. On the contrary, when looking almost like reading a book, using a phone, working with a computer, you need to wear glasses to see up close.

Here's a comparison of the features that differentiate between the 3 popular types of presbyopia:

  • Reading glasses are prescribed to help people see close up. These spectacles cannot be used to see in the distance, so the wearer will continually find it necessary to remove the reading glasses when looking at people, when talking to them, when watching television, or looking across the room or street.
  • Multifocal lenses enable the wearer to focus on both near and distance and, depending on the lens type, on middle distances, without removing his or her glasses. There are three main kinds of multi-focal lenses: progressive, bifocal and trifocal.
  • Progressive lenses do not have definite dividing lines between the different portions of the lens as they merge into each other, unlike bifocal or trifocal lenses. With a progressive lens, the power changes gradually from distance correction through the intermediate powers to the reading prescription.

The most popular choice of correction of presbyopia is a progressive lense, or varifocals as they are also called.

That is also the reason why progressive lenses often cost more than other lenses, because they have a complex design with more than a million points of calculation, the parameters must be precise to cut and shape the lenses, both meet the personalization for each person, improve the maximum visibility, efficiency for users.

Understanding that, Essilor has developed mid-to-high-end progressive lens designs to help sharpen the field of view and optimize vision in all activities, meeting the diverse and active lifestyles of customers today.
