5 Reasons Why Optometrists Recommend Progressive Readers

Tired of juggling multiple pairs of glasses? Do you find yourself switching between readers for close-up work and regular glasses for distance vision? If so, it might be time to consider an upgrade your eye doctor has likely mentioned:  progressive readers.

Progressive readers offer a seamless, multifocal lens solution that corrects vision at all distances – near, intermediate, and far. Unlike bifocals with their telltale lines, progressives offer a smooth transition between different prescription strengths, allowing for a more natural and comfortable viewing experience.

But why are these lenses becoming the go-to choice for so many people? Here's a look at five key reasons why optometrists like Dr. Gould and Dr. Olivares recommend them:

1. Seamless Vision at Every Distance

The most obvious benefit of progressive readers is their ability to provide clear vision at all distances. The lenses are cleverly designed with multiple zones of gradually changing prescription strengths, eliminating the need to switch between reading glasses and regular glasses.  This means you can go from reading a book to checking your phone to looking across the room without missing a beat – or a single detail. Imagine having clear vision for all of life's moments, from enjoying a captivating novel to admiring a scenic landscape.

2. Enhanced Aesthetics and Comfort

Let's face it, no one wants to feel like they're wearing "grandma glasses."  Progressive readers ditch the tell-tale lines of bifocals and trifocals, offering a sleek, modern look that complements your style.  Plus, because you're not constantly switching between glasses and refocusing, you'll experience less eye strain and fewer headaches. Frames like the Sofia, with its oversized geometric design, and the Luna, with its playful and assertive silhouette, are perfect examples of how progressive readers can be both stylish and functional.

3. Improved Safety and Quality of Life

Clear vision at all distances is more than just convenient – it's essential for safety, especially when driving or engaging in activities that require quick adjustments in focus.  Progressive readers help you react to your surroundings more quickly, making your daily life easier and more enjoyable. Get the confidence of driving at night without halos or starbursts around lights, or the ease of transitioning between reading your favorite book and enjoying the scenery outside your window.

4. The Right Lens for Your Unique Needs

Progressive readers come in various designs to suit different lifestyles and visual demands.  Whether you need a lens that prioritizes reading, computer work, or distance vision, your eye doctor can help you choose the perfect option tailored to your needs. 

5. Versatility and Style

Gone are the days when progressive lenses were limited to boring frames. Now, you can find progressive readers in a wide variety of stylish designs that cater to all tastes and ages.  Whether you prefer bold cat-eye frames, sleek metal, or a playful mix of materials, there's a progressive lens frame out there that's perfect for you.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
