Progressive Lenses: A Smooth Transition to Natural Vision

If you are over the age of 40 and having trouble with your vision, you are likely experiencing presbyopia, the common gradual loss of near vision. We have good news: there are more choices today than ever before. You don't have to carry a separate pair of glasses for reading or wear lined bifocal lenses like your parents used to.

Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision, and they supply all the in-between corrections as well. Instead of having only two different viewing zones (near and distant) like with bifocals, progressive lenses have progressive powers of correction (from bottom to top), easing eye strain and providing the most natural vision correction.

At Lafayette Eye Associates, we are proud to offer progressive lenses from Essilor, the world renowned company responsible for creating the very first progressive lenses. Our patients benefit from our extensive progressive lens knowledge and from our Varilux lens offerings that continue to be the #1 prescribed progressive lens today.
