What kind of lens is a progressive lens?
Progressive lenses are optical lenses designed for simultaneous correction of far, medium (for computer use), and near (for reading). They are Progressive Additional Lenses (PAL). The so-called progressive, The so-called progressive, is the use of polishing technology to achieve a gradual transition between the two focal lengths. The advantage of this design is that the wearer can see far and near objects alternately without taking off the glasses.
Benefits of Progressive Lenses
Progressive lenses are different from traditional reading glasses and bifocal glasses in that bifocal reading glasses have to constantly change the focal length, causing fatigue. And there is no clear dividing line between the two focal lengths. They are more comfortable, more beautiful. When you see far or see near, a pair of glasses can be done, so they become the best choice for old people little by little.
Progressive lenses allow multiple fields of view to be merged into a single lens with no discernible difference between the fields themselves. Degrees of the lens vary "gradually" from far to medium to your full reading. This is why progressive lenses are often regarded as "no-line" bifocals or trifocal points.
The lens looks like a single vision lens, with no dividing line between degrees. Not only is it beautiful in appearance, but more importantly, it protects the privacy of the wearer's age (for the wearer of reading glasses). There is no need to worry about showing the secret of the wearer's age by wearing the glasses. Because the degree is gradual, the replacement of the adjustment effect is increased step by step according to the shortening of the close distance. There is no adjustment fluctuation, which is not easy to cause visual fatigue. Clear vision can be achieved at all distances in the visual scope.
Are progressive lenses expensive?
The PAL tends to be more expensive than other lenses because you are definitely combining three lenses into one. Digital PAL is more expensive, but they are more personalized and specific to your size. This is key to providing the best visual experience. The cost of progressive lenses depends on several factors, including your prescription, the brand of glasses you choose, and other factors. However, you must remember that one progressive lens can replace multiple pairs of glasses, which can save you money in the long run. The price of progressive multi-focus glasses is different with different styles and different brands, from more than a hundred to thousands of yuan. We must choose according to our own economic situation.
