My progressive lenses aren’t comfortable for computer use

Do any of these situations sound familiar?

  • When I look at my computer screen, the edges look blurred.

  • In order to use my computer, I need to tilt my chin up, which gets tiring.

  • I upgraded my PC monitor to a larger size, but I found that the edges look curved.

With standard progressive lenses, not all distances are created equal.

Standard progressive lenses are built in order to offer the largest possible field of clear, undistorted vision when you look at a far distance. However, at near distances their vision field is restricted, and even more so for intermediate distances. Unfortunately, when using a computer your screen is usually situated at a distance (about 45 cm for a laptop) that is right in this intermediate zone.

The Nikon lenses that fit your needs

There are three ways you can improve your vision and comfort while using a computer. The right choice for you will depend on your lifestyle and correction needs.

Nikon progressive lens upgrade

A higher grade of progressive lenses offers wider vision fields than lower grades, for the same correction power and addition. By upgrading to a higher-performing Nikon design, you can get an enlarged field of vision, while enjoying one pair of glasses to see at all distances.
