PROGRESSIVE LENS INTRODUCTION
|Progressive eyeglass lenses, also known as 'no-line bifocals' or
'no-line trifocals' are multifocal lenses that allow for comfortable
viewing at distance, reading, and everything in-between. The top of the
lens is for distance viewing, and the power increases down the lens for
viewing intermediate (computer) and reading.
TRADITIONAL VS. DIGITAL (HD) PROGRESSIVES
Recently, the Digital (High-Definition), also known as 'free-form,' progressive lens technology has taken progressive lenses to a new level. While traditional progressives are produced using 'pre-molded' designs, where the same design is used for every application, the new, Digital (HD) progressives are fully customized! In essence, your specific applications (Rx, frame type, lens material, use, etc) are taken into account to produce a lens with wider fields of view and smoother vision. Does that mean the traditional lenses are low-quality? No, but for those who want the widest fields of view with a budget to suit, the new Digital (HD) technology is an improvement. Take a look at our field of view comparison below!
