What are Progressive Lenses?

Progressive lenses, or progressives, are a type of multifocal lens that contains several prescriptions in the same lens. These lenses provide near, intermediate, and distance vision without having to switch out glasses. At SportRx, we use a digital progressive, the highest-quality type.

A downside to progressives is that they may take a bit of getting used to. However, once you do, they make a great everyday lens! Take a look at more pros and cons of progressive lenses by checking out How Do Progressive Lenses Work?

Are Progressive Lenses Good for Driving?

Yes, they are! If you regularly wear progressive lenses, you can wear them just fine in your driving sunglasses. The convenience of having the same prescription in one pair of sunglasses means you don't have to switch when you get out of the car.

As for disadvantages, there aren't really any that are specific to driving. If you're already familiar with progressives, you know about the narrower intermediate section of the lens and are used to pointing your nose at what you're looking at. The reading section at the bottom of the lens doesn't interfere with your car dashboard, and you can use it for more everyday tasks.

So, in short, if you're already comfortable with progressives, you can wear them for driving with no difficulties!
