Progressive Lenses

Progressive Lenses

For those who require three eyeglass prescriptions, progressive lenses are a natural choice. However, the quality can vary greatly between standard and premium progressive lenses. That’s because standard progressives are just that: the standard. Both lenses have a seamless vision correction for all three distances. And, they are both a step-up from the bifocal or trifocal lenses. That’s because the lenses contain no visible line and progressively increase in strength as you move your eyes down the lenses. But, not all progressive lenses are the same. With this in mind, we offer some insight on the similarities and differences.

Standard progressives are just that: the standard.

The Difference Between Standard & Premium Progressive Lenses

Just as the name implies, standard progressive lenses, are standard. They are designed based on standard (average) parameters. This can result in things like feeling off balance when wearing your glasses or, needing to find “just the right spot” to see. Important to make note of, if you are opting for standard lenses, you’ll need larger frames.

On the other hand, premium lenses offer a broader viewing area and less visual distortions since they are custom-made for your eyes. Aside from the fact that this type of lens offers the best vision and comfort, this type of lens accommodates small frames. So, if you prefer a smaller eyeglass frame, this is the way to go.

The Benefits of Premium Lenses:

  • Offer the clearest vision
  • Are custom designed for you
  • And are easier to get used to than standard ones 

Premium progressive lenses offer a broader viewing area and less visual distortions since they are custom-made for your eyes.
