Do you depend on bifocal or multifocal lenses in order to see clearly throughout the day? Many of the customers that visit our Houston eyeglass store, West U Vision, are looking for a solution to their symptoms of presbyopia. Presbyopia is a vision condition that typically begins to develop around the age of forty or so. Many patients then use bifocals in order to aid in their ability to see at varying distances with the vision impairment from their presbyopia. The problem with bifocals is that the separate zones within the lenses make it so that the patient has to look through a certain area of the lens in order to see objects at varying distances clearly. This leads to a phenomenon known as “image jump,” which can be disorienting and hard on the eyes.
At our Houston eyeglass store, we have helped many of our customers mitigate this problem with the use of progressive lenses instead. Progressive lenses eliminate the “image jump” by creating a full range of vision from the top of the lens to the bottom. The separated zones of bifocals become seamless in specially crafted progressive lenses. In turn, using your glasses has a much more natural feeling, and will leave you feeling much more comfortable throughout your day, eliminating eye strain and the other annoyances associated with bifocal lenses. If progressive lenses sound like an appealing option to you, simply come in for a visit to our Houston eyeglass store, and we can get started in making your glasses work better for you.
