Progressive lenses

Common questions/queries we get from clients

Which brand is better? X, Y or Z?

I want the best progressive lenses.

Are there any Progressive lenses with no distortion?

Why can't I see the computer with my progressive lenses?

The answers to these questions are found in this quick 1 min read.

A pair of progressive lenses have multiple prescription zones, conveniently called the distance, intermediate & reading zone. All progressive lenses comes with distortions, but there are newer lenses (Wide Angle Progressives) with more advance technology to "push" these distortion to areas less noticeable, increasing comfort to the person using it.

However, even the most advanced type of progressive lenses have limitations when user's presbyopia/"老花" crosses the +1.75/+2.00Ds mark. Progressive lenses with prescription above this threshold tend to have very limited intermediate zone. Hence, desktop computer/laptop (Intermediate viewing) would prove to be a challenge, even with the Widest Angle Progressive,

To better cater to this group of users whose daily activities revolves around a lot of near work, a pair of Office (occupational) lenses would be the preferred choice for maximum comfort & less neck strain.

With technological advances, new progressive customization is available in the market almost every year. The newest kind being a hybrid between the Regular Progressive & Office (Occupational) Lens.


These customized Indoor-hybrid progressive lenses provides superior intermediate viewing & reading zone while leaving you with the option to occasionally view distance through the top portion of the lenses.
