With today's technology, a simple solution to the need for reading lenses is the use of multi-focal progressive lenses. Traditional bifocal lenses provide clear vision of objects in the distance and near ranges, but everything in between is blurred. The visible dividing line is also a telltale sign to everyone that you are wearing bifocals!
Below you’ll find information on some of the best progressive lens brands available today.
While each manufacturer may tout some aspect of its lens over the other, rest assured that all progressive lenses sold on FramesDirect.com are fine-quality products. The type of lens we recommend varies depending on your prescription, or in some instances, the frame type you select.
If you have any questions about these brands or progressive lenses, please call one of our friendly online opticians at 1-800-248-9427
