Progressive lenses: Everything you should know

Learn more about the range of progressive lenses

Dizziness and headache, a stiff neck, fatigue and constantly tripping when you are going upstairs – there are many stories about the problems encountered by glasses wearers when getting used to new progressive lenses. This is why many people who have never worn progressives before frequently hesitate before buying their first pair.

Progressive lenses offer several vision solutions in one lens

The production of progressives has always been something very special. Progressive lenses allow smooth, clear vision from near to far with one lens – and all without image jumps or transitions. Progressive lenses are therefore a unique feat of optical technology, and their production requires a great deal of expertise, a vast amount of optical calculation and exact knowledge of the wearer's personal parameters.

The general rule is: the more the design of a progressive lens takes into account the personal parameters of the wearer, the more comfortable and relaxed their vision will be – and the shorter the adaptation period becomes.

This is precisely why ZEISS already incorporates as many of the wearer's personal parameters, such as visual habits and anatomical data, in the production of the lens. When fitted individually for each wearer, progressives provide wearers with outstanding wearability and visual comfort. Sometimes, however, a little training is necessary to get used to progressive lenses. Talk to your ZEISS eye care professional about the possibilities that modern progressive lenses offer. We have also prepared some important information for you about progressive lenses and presbyopia.
