Can I Order Progressive Lenses Online?

With EyeBuyDirect, you can easily order progressive lenses online. Chose any of our thousands of frames, and simply select one of our multifocal options at checkout. Get started now, or take a minute to learn a little about our different multifocal lenses below to help you decide which option is best for you. After everything is clear, take a look at our selection of glasses with progressive lenses to find the perfect frame for you.

What Are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses are a type of multifocal lens. They’re for people who need vision correction for both up-close and distance vision. Many of us need this kind of correction as we get older.

Multifocal lenses feature close-up correction at the bottom of the lens and distance correction toward the top.

Standard bifocal lenses feature only two different prescriptions, but progressive lenses gradually change from close to distant-vision correction from the bottom to the top.

What Are the Advantages of Progressive Lenses?

The main advantage of progressive lenses over standard bifocals is that they correct your vision more completely. After a short adaptation period with this type of lens, you’ll instinctively look through the right part of the lens depending on the distance you are focusing on.

Progressive lenses also avoid the disorienting “jump” that can happen as you look through different parts of the lens with normal bifocals. The smooth transition between prescriptions on progressives feels a lot better.

How Can I Order Progressive Lenses Online?

Before you order any prescription eyeglasses at EyeBuyDirect, make sure you have an up-to-date prescription from your eye-care professional. We want to deliver you eyewear that provides perfect vision correction, so please take care with those numbers.

With any type of multifocal lens, you have an extra number to enter at checkout. The ADD column is where you enter the prescription for the near-vision part of the lens at the bottom. This number will have a plus symbol in front to show that it corrects vision when looking at closeup objects.

When it comes to frame style, take your pick! All of our frames can be purchased with progressive lenses. You can choose between standard progressive and premium progressive lenses at checkout. Premium progressive lenses offer less distortion and more thorough correction for a higher price than other types of multifocals.

What Other Lens Options Are Available?

Progressive multifocal lenses are great for some people but not an absolute requirement for all. Luckily we have other options available when it comes to customizing your lenses. All of our lenses come with an anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating as standard. This helps to make your lenses that little bit sturdier and avoid unsightly reflections hiding your eyes from the world.

Light-adapting transition lenses lighten or darken depending on the surrounding light level. Convenience is the watchword here. Instead of dragging around your eyeglasses and sunglasses, you can have both in one frame. One option most of us could benefit from is Blue Light Blocking lenses. Blue light from digital screens can disrupt sleep and in some cases cause long-term damage to our eyes. This type of lens filters out almost all of the harmful light, keeping your eyes happy and healthy.
