Tips for Adjusting to Progressive Lenses

If you decide to try them, use these tips:

  • Choose a quality optical shop that can guide you through the process, help you pick a good frame, and make sure the lenses are perfectly centered over your eyes. Poorly fitted progressives are a common reason why people can’t adapt to them.
  • Give yourself one or two weeks to adjust to them. Some people may need as long as a month.
  • Make sure you understand your Optometrist’s instructions on how to use them.
  • Wear your new lenses as often as possible and stop wearing your other glasses. It will make the adjustment quicker.
