FAQ

What Are Progressive Glasses?

Progressive glasses are glasses with three prescription powers. They are essentially bifocals without the line between prescription powers and optimized to allow viewing at intermediate ranges too. In progressive reading glasses, the transition between the range of prescription powers is smooth, allowing for a midrange prescription power between the distance power at the top and the reading segment at the bottom.

How Does A Progressive Lens Work?

Progressive reading glasses reduce eye strain by bringing everything into sharp focus, regardless of how close or far away it is. They work by creating a seamless and gradual shift between three visual correction powers as you move down the lens. You can see objects in the distance by looking straight ahead, then tilt your head slightly upward to see mid-distance objects, and glance slightly downward to see close-up objects.

What Are The Advantages Of Progressive Glasses?

Progressive reading glasses blend three prescriptions seamlessly so that there is no image jump or visual line on your lenses. They provide the convenience of multiple pairs of glasses into one, so you never need to worry about forgetting a pair at home when you’re out. There is also no need to switch pairs when you move from tasks like reading and driving.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Progressive Glasses?

Traditionally, progressive reading glasses have been more expensive than other types of multifocal lenses. Progressive lenses can also make wearers feel a bit nauseous or dizzy when they first begin wearing them. There is sometimes a slight bit of distortion–known as a “swim effect”–at the edge of progressive lenses that can affect peripheral vision. Most of these side effects disappear once the eyes have adjusted to the lenses.

Are Progressive Lenses Good For Driving?

Sure, progressive lenses are good for reading, computer use, and everyday activities, but are they good for driving? They certainly are. The same qualities that make them so well suited to other activities make them excellent driving glasses. The only precaution you may want to take is to ease into driving when you first start wearing progressive glasses–it can take a while to adjust and become more comfortable with them.

What Is The Average Cost Of Progressive Lenses?

Because you get three glasses in one, progressive lenses are notoriously expensive, often costing many hundreds of dollars. EyeBuyDirect has a range of progressive reading glasses that cost a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere. Ordering progressive glasses online brings you affordable high-quality progressive lenses in 1000+ fashionable designs, so you can look swell and see well.

How Long Does It Take To Adjust To Progressive Glasses?

Some people adjust to progressive reading glasses almost immediately, while others may take a few days or even a few weeks. If you haven’t adjusted to your progressive lenses after a week, you should speak to your eye doctor about it. They may need an adjustment or be the wrong option for you.

Should You Wear Progressive Glasses All The Time?

While it can take a little while to adjust to wearing progressive reading glasses, the more frequently you wear them, the easier the adjustment will be. Wearing them every day for at least two weeks without switching back and forth with your old glasses will help your eyes get used to the different powers in the lenses. However, if you are struggling to adjust, you should use your old glasses for driving until you are comfortable with your new glasses.

Why Are Progressive Lenses Blurry On The Sides?

The peripheral blurriness that people associate with progressive reading glasses is actually caused by incorporating three lens powers into one lens. The blurriness can be disorienting at first, but as your eyes adjust to the glasses, you should cease to notice it at all. If you continue to be bothered by the blurriness after a couple of weeks, your glasses or glasses prescription may need to be adjusted.

Should I Get Progressive Reading Glasses Or Bifocals?

Choosing between bifocals and progressive glasses is both a matter of preference and convenience. Progressive lenses are great for people who need to wear glasses every day because they cover all distances in one prescription. They also give you a younger, fresher look. However, bifocals are good for folks who only need glasses occasionally or who have trouble adjusting to progressive reading glasses.

How Big Do Frames Need To Be For Progressive Lenses?

When it comes to progressive reading glasses, frame size is an important consideration. Certain frames will work better for certain progressive lenses. It is important that frames are tall enough for the entire range of vision provided by progressive lenses to fit within. Frames with a very short lens will likely not fit progressive lenses well; aviators and cat-eyes are also poor choices, as they will minimize the area of the reading lens. Look for frames at least 30mm tall to give you the best progressive glasses experience.
