How Much Are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses are available to add on to existing glasses from SmartBuyGlasses from $119 in the US / £79 in the UK / $139 in Canada / $110 in Australia.

If you’re interested in the different types of progressive lenses available on sale, read this short guide to get your bearings!

 

How to Choose Your Progressive Lenses

Depending on your optical needs, there are a large range of progressive lenses available to you. There are lenses designed specifically for distance, intermediate, or near vision correction. Apart from choosing the best type of lenses, also selecting the best frames for progressive lenses is an important aspect to take into consideration because certain progressive lenses work better in different sized frames. 

Broadly speaking, there are four types of progressive lenses that affect the best frames to go with:

 

Standard Progressive Lenses

With these lenses, you’ll find that a large portion of the lens is given to the near vision part of your prescription. However, they are less adaptable when it comes to choosing your preferred glasses frames. This is because they require a certain amount of lens space in order to achieve a smooth transition between different prescriptions.

 

Short Corridor Progressive Lenses

These lenses are designed to fit into smaller, more fashionable frames. The ‘corridor’ refers to the space given to your nearsighted prescription. It can be fairly narrow, so they may take some time to adapt to. You should keep this in mind if you know you’ll have to read or use your smartphone often.

 

Computer Progressive Lenses

Designed specifically for tasks that use your intermediate vision prescription, these lenses give a lot of space to the intermediate area of your prescription. These are often used by those who work with computers on a daily basis. These can also be coupled with blue light blocking technology, like that with zFORT®.

 

Premium Progressive Lenses

Premium progressive lenses are usually completely customized to the wearer’s needs, and are thus compatible with any frame shape or size. They also provide a much larger near vision area.

 

For more detailed queries, it’s always recommended you ask your optician. They will be able to advise you on which progressive lenses are best for you, and to answer any queries you may have that pertain to your specific optical needs.
