Progressive lenses

Common questions/queries we get from clients

Which brand is better? X, Y or Z?

I want the best progressive lenses in Singapore.

Are there any Progressive lenses with no distortion?

Why I can't see the desktop 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.

There's currently 7 types of progressives lenses in the market.

(Basic, Wide Angle, Office, Indoor-hybrid, Customized Laptop/Desktop, Post-Cataract Progressive lenses)

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.

As your presbyopia/"老花" crosses the +1.75/+2.00Ds mark, progressive lenses 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 clients whose daily activities revolves around a lot of near work, a pair of Office or Customized Indoor Progressive lenses would be preferred to maximize comfort & reduce neck strain.

With technological advances, new progressive customization is available in the market almost every year. Indoor-hybrid, Customized Laptop/desktopPost-Cataract Progressive lenses

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.

Post-Cataract Progressive lenses are for clients who have done their Cataract surgery but have issues adapting to the regular kind of progressive lenses. Customized progressive lenses can provide the following benefits to increase their level of comfort:

Lower peripheral distortion

Smoother progression of reading addition

Negligible wavy motion when walking around
