Why progressives?

Progressive lenses are perfect if you need both distance and reading correction. Progressive lenses are an excellent option for anyone experiencing presbyopia (common age-related blurring of near vision).

Unlike bifocals, progressive lenses have a smooth transition between prescriptions and do not have visible lines or segments, ensuring clear vision at a wide variety of distances. Bailey Nelson's progressives are a digital freeform lens. These lenses are easy to use - even for first time wearers - and fast to become a part of your everyday life. Wearers enjoy sharp, wide, comfortable and safe vision that feels more natural.

How do progressives work?

Progressives provide sharp overall vision and seamlessly transition from distance correction on top to reading correction on the bottom. That means you can see your whole field of vision without switching between multiple pairs of glasses.

- Your distance prescription at the top of the lens means you can see further away for activities like driving or watching TV.

- The middle portion of the lens accommodates intermediate vision - think computer work or playing instruments.

- The lowest part of the lens transitions into your reading prescription for all close-up work, including reading, paperwork, and texting.

To accommodate all three prescriptions, the nature of a progressive lens can slightly distort the vision in the edges - known as peripheral distortion, soft focus, or a “swimming” effect.
