What are Premium Progressive Lenses?

Premium Progressive Lenses provide seamless, clear vision at all distances with one pair of glasses. They comfortably mimic the eye’s natural way of seeing, without the visible bifocal line. Premium progressive lenses are high-quality multifocal eyeglass lenses designed to provide a comfortable and enhanced visual experience. They are often customized to individual needs and crafted with advanced technology to offer superior vision correction for presbyopia.

What’s the difference between Bifocals vs. Premium Progressive Lenses?

Both Bifocals and Premium Progressive lenses help correct for presbyopia (an age-related vision issue that impacts reading). Bifocals only correct for distance and near vision. They also have a visible line separating these two areas of the lens. Premium Progressive lenses offer a seamless design offering clear vision for distance, intermediate vision (computer vision) and near vision. Progressive lenses are also known as No line Bifocals. The absence of a visible line on the lens provides a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Why should I choose to wear Premium  Progressive Lenses?

Premium progressive lenses offer better optical quality, wider fields of vision, and reduced peripheral distortion compared to standard progressive lenses. They are often tailored to the wearer’s unique prescription and lifestyle, resulting in a more personalized and comfortable vision correction solution.

As an optometrist with over 10 years of experience, I’ve prioritized recommending top-quality progressive lenses for my patients, and I’ve seen high success rates with their adaptation. I can personally attest that Zenni’s Premium Progressive Lenses stand toe-to-toe with those priced at hundreds of dollars.
