  • HD Digital Progressive Lenses The Latest Technology for Optimum Vision

    The advances of the newest Digital or High Definition Progressives or HD Progressives will improve your vision significantly, giving you much more peripheral vision than ever before.  Recently, the Digital (High-Definition), also known as free-form, Progressive Lens technology has taken Progressive Lenses to a new level.  HD Lenses give you up to 40% larger clear fields of view and deliver superior edge-to-edge clarity.

    Digital Progressive Lens designs give the best optical view when your optical needs and lifestyle are considered.

    The major difference between digital and traditional is digital’s ability to do custom regions within a lens to suit an individual. Digital progressive lenses ensure the most precise prescription based on the shape of your face, how do you prefer to wear your frame and the position of your eyes.

    While Traditional Progressives are produced using pre-molded designs, where the same design is used for every application, the new, Digital (HD) Progressives are fully customized. The digital lenses are produced by a method which allows the ideal front surface and the ideal back surface to be produced for the purpose desired.

    In essence, your specific applications (Rx, frame type, lens material, use, etc) are taken into account to produce a lens with wider fields of view and smoother vision. Therefore, anyone ordering lenses online or using an inexperienced optician will run into vision problems and will probably think it is the fault of Progressive Lenses. The fault is with that optician or order-taker.

    If you are picky about your vision, get these. But they are expensive. It can make the difference between a blurry 20/20 and an almost scary crystal clear 20/20 almost 20/15.

    I want to be clear in talking about the newer Digital Progressives that I do not mean the traditional lenses are low-quality. No, but for those who want the widest fields of view with a budget to suit, the new Digital (HD) technology is a tremendous improvement.
