What are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses, sometimes called “no-line bifocals,” provide a more youthful appearance by eliminating the visible lines found in bifocal and trifocal lenses. They provide the ability to see at all distances in one seamless lens, including driving at a distance, arm’s length for computer use, and up close for reading.

Progressive lenses are the most natural form of vision correction available for patients with presbyopia, as they eliminate the “image jump” present in standard bifocal and trifocal lenses. Progressive lenses provide a smooth transition from the distance through intermediate to near vision with all the in-between corrections included.

How Do Progressive Lenses Work?

If you need more than one pair of glasses or prescription to do computer work or drive, progressives let you see clearly at any distance with one pair of glasses. The constant graduation of prescription in progressive lenses enables you to look up to see in the distance, look ahead to view things such as the computer in the intermediate zone, and drop your gaze downward to read, text, or perform other work comfortably up close.

With so many progressive lens designs and options available, the choices can be overwhelming without professional advice. Ask Dr. Barton Higley about progressive lenses at your next visit!

What Makes Hoya Progressive Lenses Different?

Hoya has taken a research-oriented approach to progressive lens development. Rather than relying on traditional lens making techniques, they’ve revolutionized progressive lens design technology, enabling HOYA-certified Eye Care Professionals to offer a more precise vision correction to each and every patient.

Hoya has even developed a line of customized progressive lenses, made possible by their HOYALUX iD technology. This new technique analyzes and then simulates the way your eyes see. Then their patented Integrated Double Surface design process (IDS) shapes your new lenses exclusively for the way you view the world. It’s the first technology to shape your lens design on both the front and back surface, which results in more comfortable transitions between near and far distances, noticeably wider viewing zones, and the virtual elimination of blurring and swaying sensations in your peripheral vision.
