It happens to all of us at some time. Our eyes gradually lose their ability to read. Suddenly, we can neither read texts at close range nor recognise objects in the distance. It’s time to get a new pair of glasses with progressive lenses. These state-of-the-art lenses allow us to focus sharply on distant and close-up objects – and on everything in-between as well. This is all made possible by a special lens design. However, as with all advanced products, the differences in quality are immense. After all, a good progressive lens can only perform optimally if it provides the wearer with totally relaxed and natural vision precisely tailored to his or her personal needs and visual performance.
Especially for patients purchasing their first pair of glasses it is important to receive a lens that provides immediate wearer tolerance and is good value for the money.
ZEISS offers four different types of progressive lenses, allowing your eye care professional to choose the optimum lens for you and with you. The process is much like buying a new car – you can choose from different levels of quality, depending on how high your prescription is for near and far vision and on the purposes for which you intend to use your new progressive lenses.
Our eyes are our most important sensory organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customised visual analysis at your optometrist.
Here's what your glasses can do for you when hunting.
Contact lenses are a very good alternative to glasses – yet there are still a few vision solutions that are only possible with good ol' glasses.
The demands being made on our vision have increased phenomenally in recent years. BETTER VISION talks to Laura Rocha about how the new ZEISS Progressive Portfolio takes these challenges into account.
No problem: four types of progressive lens make it easy to select the right one for your needs
