Progressive lenses and how they work
Progressive lenses allow you to have a steady vision at all distances without the visible and uncomfortable line of bifocals. Progressive lenses gradually change distances from intermediate to near vision. The top part of the lens is used for distance, and the bottom lens for near vision. Intermediate vision, the middle of the lens, is most often used for computer use. Simply tilt your head up and down or slightly move the eyes and look towards any object. Looking straight ahead at the top of your lens, your vision at a distance should be very clear. If you were to hold a piece of paper in your hand, you would simply need to move your eyes down to see the document clearly. You just got use to your progressive lenses!
It may take a few days to a few weeks to get used to. Remember a few important details while you are getting use to your progressive lenses: always point your nose toward what you want to see. If you move your head only slightly, your vision will not be as clear. Also keep in mind that progressive lenses are not only reading glasses. Therefore, if your glasses slide down your nose, your vision will be blurred as your eye would be focusing on the wrong area of the lens.

Once we receive your prescription lenses, our certified technicians and opticians work on making final adjustments to your glasses in order to be able to deliver as promptly as possible.
