Progressive lenses are true “multifocal” lenses that provide an infinite number of lens strengths in one pair of glasses. Optimum-vision runs the length of the lens to allow for each distance to be clear:
- Top of lens: ideal for distance vision, driving, TV.
- Middle of lens: ideal for computer vision, intermediate distances.
- Bottom of the lens: ideal for reading or completing other close-up activities.
A subtle head-tilt allows the patient to see through each specific zone clearly. Some patients require 1-2 weeks of adjustment to adapt to this unique lens design.
