Progressive Lenses

progressive diagramReferred to as "no-line" bifocals or trifocals, progressive glasses are ideal for patients who have presbyopia —a vision condition marked by a decrease in the ability to focus sharply on nearby objects.

As we age naturally, our ability to see nearby objects and objects in the distance can decrease. Progressive lenses address separate visual needs in one lens—usually with a “distance viewing” field build into the upper portion of the lens, and a “near vision” field built into the lower portion.

Unlike traditional bifocals or trifocals, there are no visible lines separating the different fields of a progressive lens. Your eyes are seen clearly behind the progressive eyeglasses, you’ve got the same “look” as eyeglass wearers often half your age, and there are no “lens lines” to distract your vision.

In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the CDC has recommended that all routine eye care be deferred until further notice.

For the safety of our patients, our team, and the community, P.E.C. is complying with that recommendation. We are currently rescheduling annual eye examinations for patients without problems.

Our doctors are continuing to see patients with urgent and emergent eye problems.

Temporarily, our office is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday - Friday.

Please call 804-285-7638 before coming to the office so that we can address your questions and concerns on an individual basis.

If you are picking up contact lenses or eyewear, we would be happy to bring them to your car. We can also mail your contact lens supply without shipping charges.
