you suffer from nearsightedness or farsightedness, you probably
needed multifocal lenses to help see well. Multifocal lenses include
bifocal, trifocal, and progressive lenses. Both bifocal and trifocal
lenses have a line on the lens of the eyeglasses to help see two or
three viewing distances. Progressive lenses, on the other hand, have
no-line in the lens and it helps to see all kinds of distances. At
Advanced Eyecare in Blue Spring, Raymore, and Raytown, we offer
progressive lenses to better enhance your vision. Here are a few
questions about progressive lenses.
What Are Progressive Lenses?
As mentioned above, progressive lenses let you see a continuous field of vision without any lines. These multifocal lenses are more modern and more comfortable to wear. Unlike bifocal lenses, progressive lenses removes the annoying image jumps.
How Are Progressive Lenses Different from Bifocals?
With bifocals, you can see close-up and far away. However, you can’t see one or two feet in front of you. Additionally, there is a distinct line on the eyeglasses that can interrupt your field of vision and makes it more difficult to focus.
Who Needs Progressive Lenses?
If you have presbyopia, you probably need multifocal lenses to correct your vision. Presbyopia is an eye condition where you are having a difficult time seeing close-up objects. People who suffer from astigmatism may also benefit from wearing progressive lenses.
How Long Does It Take To Get Used To Progressive Lenses?
It may take two or three days to get used them. It may take longer if you have a prescription change or if it is your first time getting eyeglasses.
How Do I Get Progressive lenses?
You will first need to see an eye doctor for eye exam before getting progressive lenses. Our eye doctors at Advanced Eyecare can have a look at your vision and eyes to see if they are healthy. If you were not able to see close-up objects or letters during your exam, you may have presbyopia. If you do happen to have presbyopia, our eye doctors may suggest you wearing progressive lenses. If you already wear bifocal or trifocal lenses and want to make the switch, talk with our optometrists to see if progressive lenses can benefit you.
