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 are the differences between progressive lenses and bifocals?
