The Benefits of Digital Progressives

The Benefits of Digital Progressives

Technology has led to vast improvements in vision care, providing options that were unimaginable just a few decades ago. Digital progressive lenses are a perfect example of the power of technology in transforming vision. If you are considering new lenses and live in or around Monticello or Summerland, contact Dr. Kleen at Carpinteria Eye Care to find the best vision correction options.

What Are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses, sometimes called trifocal lenses, are lenses manufactured to provide improvements in your near, middle, and far fields of vision. Years ago, you would have to use two different pairs of glasses to switch between close and far vision. Early bifocal lenses allowed you to wear just one pair but had a clearly visible line of demarcation where the magnification changed. Progressive lenses eliminated those lines and allowed people to use a single pair of glasses to address all of their vision correction needs.

Digital Progressives Are Different

Digital progressives are often called high-definition lenses. They take advantage of the latest computer-controlled manufacturing technologies. These lenses deliver improvements for near, middle, and far vision and are made of thin and light materials. The benefits of digital progressives include:

  • Sharper image quality
  • Enhanced peripheral vision
  • Wider field of view
  • Improved ability to differentiate between areas of light and dark

Digital progressives are available in tinted options and adaptive options that can automatically increase the tint when you are in areas of greater sunlight.

Good Candidates for Digital Progressives

Virtually anyone who relies on eyeglasses or contacts for enhanced vision is a good candidate for digital progressives. As with any new eyeglasses, it may take a short period of adjustment for your eyes to get used to the clarity provided with digital progressives.
