Progressive lenses offer a versatile and seamless solution for vision correction at multiple distances. But before you take the plunge, it's important to assess if they're the right choice for your unique needs. We've put together five key questions to help you determine if progressive lenses are the perfect fit for you. Let's dive in!


  1. Do you often find yourself struggling to see clearly at different distances? Progressive lenses can offer a seamless transition between different prescription strengths, allowing you to see clearly at all distances without needing to switch between different pairs of glasses.


  1. Do you often find yourself tilting your head to adjust your focus? If so, progressive lenses can eliminate the need for head tilting by offering a smooth transition between different prescription strengths.


  1. Do you spend a lot of time reading or using a computer? If you do, progressive lenses can be a great option. They offer a specific portion of the lens designed for close-up tasks like reading or computer work.


  1. Are you willing to invest in high-quality eyewear? Progressive lenses can be more expensive than traditional single vision lenses, because they require more complex manufacturing process. The lenses have multiple prescriptions in one lens, which requires more intricate and precise manufacturing methods. Additionally, it's important to work with an experienced progressive lens fitter who can take into consideration your specific visual needs, frame selection, and lifestyle to ensure the lenses are properly fitted for optimal performance.


  1. Are you willing to take the time to adjust to new lenses? Progressive lenses require an adjustment period, during which time you may experience some blurriness or distortion. However, with patience and consistent wear, you can adjust to these lenses and enjoy the benefits they offer.
