Reading Glasses and Progressives

Eyewear_Male12If you often find yourself holding menus, books and other reading materials at an arms length just to read or if you feel like the words on a page just aren't big enough, a comprehensive eye exam will be performed to determine the exact nature of your vision problem. With this information, we will be able to create the right corrective lenses to bring the all of your reading materials back into focus.

Reading glasses may be the solution for you if you are only having problems at a near viewing distance. Reading glasses can either have a slight prescription that is tailored to your specific vision problem or they may just contain a magnification to bring the words into sharper focus. Regardless of the lens details, reading glasses can save you from excessive strain and wear on your eyes and may prevent the headaches.

Bifocals are better solutions for patients that need both distance and near correction. Typical bifocals have concrete lines that separate the different lenses. Progressive lenses offer the same features, but without the lines. Progressives use a natural, seamless progression through the different powers in the lenses. Many think that progressive lenses are more fashionable than the typical bifocal lenses. These are also a good option if you do not like having to remove reading glasses to view distance objects. Progressives are great for multi-tasking!
