What should I notice when wearing progressive glasses?
Understand the impact of frame selection on the lens
Frame size is an important consideration when using progressive lenses because some progressive lenses work better in frames of different sizes. Since progressive lenses allow you to see at all distances, it's important that the whole range of vision fits within the frame. Therefore, very short lenses and larger lenses are not suitable for progressive lenses.
Are progressive lenses good for driving?
Progressive lenses can help you see close, far, and anywhere in between. That means progressive lenses are good for driving. So you don't have to change your glasses on the way. With progressive lenses, you can easily see all distances. Standard lenses are more affordable than premium lenses, but premium lenses offer a wider field of view and are ideal for drivers.
The shape of the lens is also important.
Aviator and cat-eye glasses should be avoided, as both will cut off the base of the prescription, resulting in poor reading vision. Instead, they should opt for shorter frames with rounded edges, such as bull horn frames, vintage wingtips, round frames, and oval frames.
Choose a quality progressive lens.
Superior progressive lenses provide a better viewing experience. They also remove any distortions you might feel when reading what's in front of you. Lenses can also be coated with special coatings. Anti-reflective coating can prevent glare on the road, and anti-scratch coating can reduce wear marks.
How to determine whether progressive lenses are worn correctly?
Once your glasses are back from the lab, the optometrist will let you put them on for an audition and make final adjustments to make sure they fit. If the prescription is not in the center of the lens, it will make it difficult for you to see clearly. The key is that the lenses match the wearer's eyes, especially the pupils. Before ordering a new lens, the optometrist takes two measurements: pupil distance and fitting height.
