Progressive lenses offer greater visual correction than ordinary reading glasses and bifocals. These lenses have taken optical assistance closer to natural vision than ever before. They pull off an amazing feat by allowing good vision near, far and everywhere in between without annoying, distracting lines. This is why they are sometimes called no-line bifocals. Progressives provide a smooth transition from distance through intermediate to near, with all the in-between corrections included as well. This continuum of lens power provides a natural range of vision for patients. Unlike other lenses, progressives provide quality vision in the periphery. Introduction of compact lenses has added that dash of fashion to the exquisite line up. Progressive lens has, today, evolved to be the best product for those above 40, principally because the age group depends on glasses for all the practical needs of daily life. Progressives can double up as reading glasses as well as bifoca ls or trifocals, with enhanced clarity as the add on. Varilux Comfort, Varilux Panamic, Nikon Presio, Kodak, Kodak Precise, Kodak Concise are some of the major brands in this category. Nikon Web Lens, which offer a much large usable area for reading and computer work,is also a popular option today.
