Who should wear progressive lenses?


In daily life, you've probably seen this behavior:
When you notice that you or your family members struggle to read small print or see objects up close, take note. This is very likely presbyopia.
Everyone will experience presbyopia, but the onset varies from person to person.
Presbyopia, commonly known as “old sight,” is a natural aging phenomenon. As we age, the lenses in our eyes gradually harden and lose elasticity. Consequently, our eyes' ability to focus on nearby objects diminishes, causing blurred vision when looking at close objects.
Presbyopia generally starts to appear between the ages of 40 to 45, but this is not absolute. Some people may begin to experience it as early as 38.

Each person's vision condition varies, so the onset and severity of presbyopia differ. People with myopia might initially feel that their presbyopia is counteracted by their nearsightedness, making them the last to notice presbyopia. Conversely, those with hyperopia, who already struggle to see both near and far, may be the first to experience presbyopia as their eyes' focusing ability diminishes with age.

Neglecting Presbyopia Can Lead to Visual Fatigue and Safety Hazards
For those newly experiencing presbyopia, "manual adjustment mode" might be temporarily sufficient but is not a long-term solution. Long-term reliance on this can lead to eye strain, tears, and soreness. Furthermore, the diminished focusing ability during presbyopia means slower reaction times when switching focus between distances, posing safety risks, such as when driving.

If you or someone around you shows signs of presbyopia, it’s crucial to address it promptly.

Are Reading Glasses the Only Solution for Presbyopia?
Actually, There Are More Options.
Many people opt for reading glasses when presbyopia appears, but it's important to avoid buying cheap glasses from street vendors or markets. These glasses often lack quality assurance and proper prescription, leading to eye strain and discomfort. Moreover, socially active individuals may find these glasses unattractive.

In fact, progressive multifocal lenses are a better solution for presbyopia. These lenses, with multiple focal points, cater to different visual needs—distance, intermediate, and near vision. This eliminates the need for multiple pairs of glasses for people with additional vision issues like myopia or hyperopia.
However, progressive lenses have areas with significant astigmatism that can cause visual distortion. The comfort of wearing progressive lenses depends on the design, especially the distribution of visual zones.
New users of progressive lenses may need a short adaptation period. Learning and adjusting to the new lenses is crucial for a clear and comfortable visual experience. Patience is key in adapting to progressive lenses.

Learning Tips for Using Progressive Lenses:
1.Static Before Dynamic: Start using progressive lenses at home. Sit still and get used to changes in space and distance through the lenses before gradually using them while walking, driving, or during activities.
2.Look Up and Down, Move Your Eyes: Keep your head still and move your eyes down to look at nearby objects through the lower part of the lenses. Avoid having screens too high to ensure you can look down comfortably.
3.Look Left and Right, Move Your Head: Keep your eyes still and turn your head to look at objects on either side for a clear view.
