What are progressive power reading glasses?

Progressive reading glasses, also known as no-line bifocals, are a type of eyewear designed to address presbyopia. This condition typically develops with age and results in difficulty focusing on close objects. Unlike traditional bifocals or trifocals, which have visible lines separating different lens powers, progressive lenses are crafted with a smooth gradient of varying lens strengths. 

Here are some key points about progressive reading glasses:

  • Gradual Power Transition: Progressive lenses have a seamless transition from near distance vision to intermediate vision (for computer screens or arm’s length) and finally to near vision (for reading). There is no abrupt line dividing these zones, providing a more natural visual experience.

  • Correction for Multiple Distances: Progressive lenses allow wearers to focus on objects at different distances without needing to switch between different pairs of glasses. The top portion of the lens is for distance vision, the middle section for intermediate vision, and the lower part for close-up reading.

  • Versatility: Whether you’re working on a computer, reading a book, or looking at something in the distance, progressive reading glasses provide clear vision across various tasks.

  • Adjustment Period: Some people may need time to adapt to progressive lenses due to the gradual power change. But at Sightline we think:  "If you have to adapt, send them back."  There should be no period of adjustment for our reading glasses - this is one reason we offer free return shipping.  We want you to only be totally delighted.  

If you’re experiencing presbyopia and have never tried a progressive power reader, consider Sightline readers.
