What Are Progressive Lenses?

Did you know most people experience vision changes as they age? At first, you might notice things like an increased difficulty when adjusting your focus between nearby objects and things that are farther away. Over time, this can lead to needing multiple vision corrections and consequently, multiple pairs of glasses.

If you wear one pair of glasses for reading and another for distance-vision, progressive glasses may be the perfect fit for you. Progressive lenses are a popular and convenient option for those who would normally require more than one pair of glasses to see at different distances, like while reading or driving for example. Still, what are progressive lenses exactly?

Progressive glasses, like UltimateView™ lenses, are a special multifocal lens type that is divided into “zones”. These lens zone areas enable you to smoothly and effortlessly alternate between, near, far, and mid-range vision depending on where you look. Progressive lenses effectively eliminate the need to switch between several pairs of glasses throughout the day and are a great option for those with more than one vision prescription.

Progressive Lenses in Glasses vs Standard Lenses

Progressive lenses are a great option for people who wear multiple pairs of eyeglasses. Still, what’s the difference between progressive lenses and standard lenses?

While standard lenses only correct for one distance at a time, such as nearsightedness or farsightedness, progressive lenses can correct for multiple distances at once. So, for people who wear more than one pair of prescription glasses every day, progressives can be a more convenient eyewear choice. Since progressive lenses allow you to shift between close-up, mid-range, and distance vision, you can enjoy seamless vision without skipping a beat.

Progressive Glasses Cost

When you shop for progressive glasses at a traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass shop, they can get pretty expensive. In fact, they can sometimes cost as much as $300 or more.

At 39DollarGlasses.com, complete pairs of single-vision glasses start at just $39. What’s more, additional upgrades – such as progressive lensing and other custom options – can also be added to your glasses at a significantly reduced cost compared to retail.

At 39DollarGlasses, we custom-craft each pair of glasses in our US-based lab run by real eye-doctors. So, even though our eyewear uses the same high-quality, durable materials as designer brands, our glasses are priced significantly lower than retail cost.
