Making Multifocal Lenses Work for You
Multifocal (progressive) lenses offer many benefits. But oftentimes, people try progressives for the first time and aren’t successfully able to adapt – or they don’t fully understand or appreciate all the benefits a multifocal progressive lens can provide.
People wear progressive lenses, also known as multifocal lenses, in order to combine many focal points, allowing the wearer to see distant, intermediate, and near points. In other words, these are corrective lenses that bring vision back before glasses are needed.
It’s important to keep in mind that not all vision correction lenses are not created equal. This is especially true when it comes to progressive lenses.
This is because progressive lenses are inherently more difficult to fit – the same variations in the lens that correct multiple focal lengths also increase lens distortion. That’s why it’s imperative that your lenses have the necessary technology to offset that distortion.
The key is precision!
Prescription. Measurements and Fit. Lens Design.
Getting an accurate prescription is the obvious start when you think of seeing well, but if the measurements taken to fit the lenses are not precise that will be interpreted as an incorrect prescription for the wearer. The fit and adjustment of the frame require the same precision or there will be a negative impact on how well you see. It’s also important to keep in mind, the lens design you choose is a key component and directly affects the optimization of your vision.
It’s easy to overlook the lens design when it comes to optimizing your vision, because on the surface, lenses can look the same and seem like uncomplicated pieces of plastic. In actuality, there’s millions of dollars of technology built into design and manufacturing with the sole purpose of recreating what the human eye does so effortlessly.
