What are progressive lenses?

January 1, 1970

As their name suggests, this versatile lens progresses from near to far distance and everything in between. And there are no telltale lines to tell them apart from single lenses or the ugly lines that characterize bifocals.

Progressive lenses were designed in response to a simple fact of life: As we age, our eyesight deteriorates. By the time we reach our 40s, most of us need a little help reading labels. If you’ve asked yourself, “Why is this writing so small?” it’s probably time for an eye test!

The term for the loss of near focusing ability that comes as we grow older is presbyopia. It’s inevitable. But with the help of progressive lenses, it doesn’t have to affect your quality of life.

Your age IS a factor in your lens needs

There’s no getting away from it: your eye’s physiological age generally relates to your chronological age. In depth research conducted on presbyopes between the ages of 40 and 60 shows that younger presbyopes need a good solution for digital reading and support for dynamic vision; older presbyopes have more balanced needs in terms of their vision zones; and senior presbyopes need a good solution for far and near vision.

Progress is impossible without change. Progressive lenses meet your changing needs.

That’s why Shamir has created a range of progressive lenses that meet your visual needs — today and tomorrow. Our lenses evolve with you, during every age and stage of life. With Shamir’s progressive lenses, you can enjoy high quality lenses that help you maintain quality of life.
