Progressive eyeglasses for perfect vision at every range. Presbyopia sets in around the age of 40-45. The lens of the eye becomes gradually more rigid, and the small muscles around the eye can no longer curve the lens in order to focus like before. Your vision is blurred at close range, and reading becomes increasingly difficult.
Simple presbyopia can be corrected with ordinary reading glasses, but if you are also nearsighted or have astigmatism, for example, progressive lenses enable multiple types of correction with a single lens. Progressive lenses include different powers to correct your vision both at close range and at a dis-tance. Unlike bifocal lenses, which are divided into two distinct segments for near vision and distance vision, progressive lenses have a gradual, invisible transition between the upper and lower parts of the lens. If you find using two pairs of glasses inconvenient and think bifocal glasses make you look old, pro-gressive eyeglasses are the solution.
How to choose progressive eyeglasses!
Since progressive lenses have multiple powers, it's important that the frame is high enough to leave sufficient lens surface for each power. The rule of thumb is that the frame should be at least 30 mm high. In our online store, you can use a dedicated filter to display only frames that are suitable for progressive lenses. When you order progressive eyeglasses from Extra Optical, you can choose between standard pro-gressive lenses and so-called free-form lenses. Free-form lenses can be tailored to your prescription values and your chosen frame, and will give you a wider field of view and improved visual comfort. Progressive eyeglasses may require a period of adaptation, ranging from a few minutes to a few weeks. You might feel a little dizzy, or experience slight headaches or nausea. This is completely normal, and it passes quickly for most people.
