How Progressive Glasses Work

This design allows you to look up to see clearly across the room and in the distance. You also can look ahead to view your computer in the intermediate zone and drop your gaze downward to read and do fine work through the near zone of the lenses.

What will I experience when getting used to wearing progressive glasses?

When wearing progressive glasses, it is normal to feel some eye strain or dizziness at first. 

If your eyes are really tired by the end of the day, start off wearing them for 2 hours the first day, 4 hours the next day, 6 hours the following day, and so forth until you can adjust to using the progressive glasses for the full day.


There are some areas of soft blur at the edges of the lenses so more head movement will be required to look in the periphery to avoid the blur. (For example, You will need to turn your head not just your eyes when shoulder checking while driving)

Also, be careful walking downstairs. Look through the top part of the lens when looking down.

Remember that the distance prescription is at the top, the reading prescription at the bottom, and a gradual “intermediate” blending in between is primarily used for computer work.

Tips for adapting progressive glasses:

Most wearers will adjust to the new vision within 1 to 2 days, but it may take two weeks for some wearers. If more than two weeks are still not adapted, the cause should be systematically understood and resolved. The causes and treatment of the discomfort of progressive multi-focus lenses are mainly analyzed from the lens diopter, lens matching parameters, and frame conditions.

We gave several tips for better adapting progressive glasses as follows:



1. The more you wear your progressive glasses, the quicker you’ll get used to them. A gradual approac will not work.



2. As is the case with any pair of progressive glasses, proper positioning can make a difference in how comfortable you are and how well you see, especially when you first start wearing them. Be sure to keep your glasses positioned high up on the bridge of your nose and close to your eyes. It is to increase visibility as much as possible.



3. Don’t just move your eyes. Constantly moving your eyes only from one part of the lens to the other will only cause eye strain, which can lead to headaches and eye discomfort. Plus you won’t be able to see through the correct prescription.


It may take a few weeks, but you’ll get it, and it’ll soon be far easier than switching between two pairs of progressive glasses.
