Can I wear Workspace Progressives while driving?

Workspace Progressives are not recommended for driving since they do not have distance vision.

Can I purchase Workspace Progressives as sunglasses?

No, Workspace Progressives cannot be tinted, polarized, or ordered as photochromic.

Is it hard to get used to Workspace Progressives?

Workspace Progressives are generally used by patients who already wear standard progressives, making adaptation fairly seamless for their intended use. It takes people who have never worn any type of progressive lens a few weeks to fully adapt.

I have standard progressives - Should I also get Workspace Progressives?

People who spend a large amount of time doing up-close work in standard progressives often find the small reading and computer zones in the lens frustrating. Workspace Progressives allow you to have both a clearer and more comfortable pair of glasses for specific tasks like extended reading and computer use, in addition to your all-purpose standard progressives.

How do I decide which lens to select - The Mid-Range or Near-Range Progressives?

Think about your typical day and how you will use these glasses. If you spend most of your day sitting at a desk using the computer, the Near-Range Progressives are probably best. If you walk around your office and have meetings frequently, the mid-range progressives may be more suitable. Consider the distance of things you normally interact with, and pick the lens that best suits your tasks.

Do I need to have a special prescription for Workspace Progressives?

No. Simply enter your regular prescription (including ADD) during the order process. Our lab technicians will calculate the lens parameters for you based on your prescription and selected Workspace Progressive lens.
