PROGRESSIVE LENS WEARER’S GUIDE

A progressive lens is not designed to have clear vision throughout the entire lens. In learning to wear a progressive lens you must remember that like an hourglass the corridor is narrower in the middle than the top and bottom. To use the middle portion you need to use your nose like a pointer and turn your head slightly to look directly at your object to get the full advantage of the intermediate area. If you glance to either side you will run into the blended area and your vision will blur slightly.
To adjust the power between the distance and the near you must move your head slowly up or down which changes the power according to how far away the object or reading material is from you. Generally your near distance is measured about 16 to 18 inches or elbow distance. The intermediate distance is between your elbow and about 6 inches beyond your finger tips. The far vision is anything beyond that. When wearing a progressive for the first time you must tilt your chin toward your chest and look over the intermediate blend to see the floor since it in your distance area.

Now that you have the basics of progressive lenses and how to use them, enjoy the variety of vision and the freedom you have now gained away from traditional bifocal lenses.
