What Are Progressives?

Progressives are no-line multifocal lenses with up to three viewing areas for near-, mid- and distance vision, so you can see up close and far away with one pair of glasses.

How to Adapt to Progressive Lenses

FAQ

What is the difference between the premium progressives and standard progressives?

Our high-definition premium progressives feature wider viewing areas for the intermediate and reading areas of the lens than standard progressives. Peripheral (side) distortion is reduced by up to 40% compared to the standard design. With premium progressives, the transition from distance viewing to looking at a computer, for example, to reading up close is more seamless, making adaptation easier and more comfortable.

Who benefits from premium progressives?

Anyone looking for an everyday pair of progressives with enhanced vision and minimal distortion. If you already have a pair of Zenni’s standard progressives, you’ll love premium progressives for improved comfort and visibility. They’re also highly recommended for anyone who is a first-time progressives wearer, since they offer an easier adaptation process.

What are the benefits of premium progressives?

  • Fully customized, German-engineered optical lens
  • Sharper focus reduces eye strain
  • Easy adaptation between viewing areas
  • Less peripheral distortion
  • Wider intermediate and near/reading viewing areas provide maximum comfort
