Progressive Lens Introduction
Progressive eyeglass lenses, also known as "no-line bifocals" or "no-line trifocals," are multifocal lenses that allow for comfortable viewing things at a distance, while reading, and everything in-between. The top of the lens is for distance viewing and the power increases down the lens for intermediate viewing (computer) and reading.
Traditional vs. Digital (HD) Progressives
Recently, digital (high-definition) progressive lens technology (also known as "free form") has taken progressive lenses to a new level. While traditional progressives are produced using pre-molded designs, where the same design is used for every application, the new digital (HD) progressives are fully customized! In essence, your specific applications (Rx, frame type, lens material, use, etc.) are taken into account to produce a lens with wider fields of view and smoother vision. Does that mean the traditional lenses are low-quality? No, but for those who want the widest fields of view with a budget to suit, the new digital (HD) technology is an improvement.
