Progressives: Everything you should know

Find out more about our range of progressive lenses.

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

Progressive lenses offer several vision solutions in a single lens

The production of progressives has always been something very special. Progressive lenses allow smooth, clear vision from near to far in one lens – without image jumps or transitions. Progressive lenses are therefore a unique feat of optical technology, and producing them requires a lot of know-how, 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 quicker they’ll get used to them.

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