About Progressive Lenses:
Are you over 40 years old and having issues with your vision, such as problems reading? You may be experiencing presbyopia, a common condition that causes the gradual loss of near vision. You may remember your parents having to carry a separate pair of reading glasses everywhere, but fortunately for you, we have more options today.

Progressive lenses allow you to transition from distant to intermediate to near vision with progressive powers of correction. In other words, instead of having two “zones” of vision (near and distant) like the approach used by bifocals, you get a smooth, corrected transition all the way and in between these two zones.

Progressive lenses were first invented in 1959 by Varilux®, a trademark of Essilor. Varilux continues to be the #1 choice of eyecare professionals worldwide when it comes to prescribed progressive lenses.

Crizal® by Essilor
UV rays can harm not only your skin, but your eyes. That’s why we suggest coating your clear lenses with Crizal®. Crizal works by selectively filtering out blue-violet light. They are designed with very thin mineral layers that eliminate glare. Take a look yourself:
