TIPS for starting out with progressive lenses?

 

Have you just switched to progressive lenses? To make the switch as easily as possible, here are some simple tips.

1. LOOK FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP

Look into the top of the progressive lens to see far and into the bottom to see near: for example, if you go down the stairs and you want to look where you put your feet, lower your head but do not lower your eyes any further.

2. AVOID LOOKING TO THE SIDE

The areas to the bottom on the left and right appear slightly blurred, and are called "aberration zones". This is because of the special curve of the progressive lens and cannot be removed. Look straight in front of you as much as possible and this unpleasant sensation will quickly fade. 

3. MAKE THE SWITCH GRADUALLY

If you experience an unpleasant feeling with your progressive lenses during the adaptation period, try to wear your new glasses for a few hours each day, preferably at home, rather than for long periods. Then, stop wearing them for a few hours afterwards. Try wearing them them for longer and longer periods.

Adaptation problems were much more common with the previous generation of progressive lenses; as progressive lens technology advances, more and more short-sighted people easily adapt.

If you still feel discomfort, don't hesitate to return to your optician to check that the lenses are fitted properly.
