At approximately the age of 40, the ability of the eye to focus on near objects decreases by a natural process called presbyopia. Single vision reading lenses can be prescribed to alleviate presbyopia, bringing near objects back in to sharp focus, however the concern remains that objects at middle or far distance remain blurred whilst looking through the glasses. Multifocal or progressive lenses overcome this common limitation of reading lenses, by providing sharp vision from distance to near, and every intermediate distance. 

In general, all progressive lenses have 4 distinct areas or zones of vision. The location and size of each of these zones varies greatly amongst different lens models, and is also significantly influenced by other parameters such as your prescription, frame size and shape, and eye position within the frame. Each of these factors must be carefully considered before we make recommendations on the lens design that will best suit your needs.

Your first experience wearing progressive lenses

When wearing progressive lenses for the first time you are likely to be aware of some of the following experiences such as areas of soft focus at the edges of the lens, more head movement rather than eye movement to keep your gaze within the clearest portions of the lens, and having to learn to posture your head to obtain the best vision for distance and near tasks. All these observations are completely natural, and fortunately diminish after a short period of time. The more time spent wearing your new progressive lenses each day will hasten this process.
