Progressive lenses are one of the newest innovations in lens technology. They are sometimes referred to as no-line bifocals. Not only do they provide visual correction for distances that traditional bifocals can't, but they also hide the fact that you even need reading glasses.
Progressive lenses are designed so that the distance prescription is used during straight-ahead gaze and the reading prescription during down-gaze. This then provides a more natural vision without any lines in the lens (which can get in the way on stairs for example).
Progressive lenses provide excellent results for most patients
They provide a focus for distance, near and all distances between
Cosmetically they look "younger" with no lines
The vision correction is more natural for the wearer
The latest design of progressive lenses ensures the wearer a high level of performance for comfortable vision whatever the distance, in particular providing a wider and clearer field of vision.
Spectacle lenses with a tint that responds to sunlight are termed photochromic. Previously restricted to glass lightweight colour change lenses are now available made from resin or plastic.
Photochromic plastic lenses are light weight
They respond to suit varying levels of glare
They offer UV protection as a feature of the material
The lens surfaces are treated to resist scratching
Newer versions include high index materials for further reductions in weight and thickness
