Tips for Success When Adapting to Progressive Lenses
For first-time progressive wearers;
- Get used to your new lenses while sitting down, in front of television is ideal
- If you are struggling to find the reading zone re-orient yourself by looking straight ahead then look down to read again
- Remember the golden rule; point your nose to where you want to look
- In time it is likely you will be able to walk up and down stairs, but take care and tuck in your chin and point your nose to your toes – take glasses off if you are uncomfortable
- Extreme care is recommended when driving; do not use new progressives if you are not confident in the early days.
Previous Progressive Lens Wearers;
- It is likely the strength of your prescription has increased, and your lens design may have also been changed
- These changes require adaptation time, similar to when you first got progressive lenses
- Follow the above tips especially for finding the reading zone
Previous Occupational Progressive Lens wearers;
- Your lens design has changed from a lens specific for reading and desk use.
- As you now have three focus zones instead of two you will be aware of peripheral distortions more.
- Most importantly allow time to adapt to new lenses.
