It's Your Progressive Lens Expert and before you can find out which Progressive Lens is best for you, you have to learn a deeper level of understanding and a higher level of sophistication when it comes to lens design as well as how the measurements are taken.
Once we combine those two elements, then we can begin to answer which Progressive Lens is the best lens for you depending on how you're going to use them. Also which frame and how the frame fits you in the wearing position.
There used to be a time, a long long time ago, when you would pick a lens brand, order your Progressive Lens brand, and then begin wearing them.
Now, it's not about brand, it's about design and how much understanding the optician has of the benefits each progressive lens and the customizations that are available for you to take advantage of.
Some frames don't have nose pads and some frames do. Having nose pads is going to make the eyeglasses rest further from your eyes which will affect a measurement called Vertex Distance.
Eyeglasses that don't have any nose pads are going to sit a little closer to your eyes.
We have to compensate and adjust the power of the lens so that you can have the best vision possible vision through the best progressive lens that best fits you.
