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, even with the Widest Angle Progressive, desktop computer/laptop (Intermediate viewing) would prove to be a challenge.
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.
In conclusion, there is no one Best brand/design for everyone. The best pair for another person might not the best suited for your eyes. Everyone's eyes, habits & lifestyle are different, hence the pair of progressive lenses you use should be & must be customized to your eyes.
