No Line Lenses

No Line Lenses at Redding Eyecare Center

Are you approaching middle age? If so, then you may find yourself needing help with both your distance vision and your near vision. Bifocals and trifocals, however, aren't to everyone's taste. Especially those who don't want the whole world to know that they're old enough to be struggling with presbyopia. Fortunately, modern optometry offers another option: the smooth correction of no line lenses, also known as progressive lenses. You can get these no line lenses right here at Redding Eyecare Center in Redding, CA.

No Line Lenses at Redding Eyecare Center

The Modern Approach to Correcting Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a condition that afflicts most people aged 40 and older. As you reach this age, the lenses of your eyes start to lose some of their focusing ability. This change makes it more difficult for the lenses in your eyes to bring near objects into sharp focus, or to shift between near and distance vision. People whose vision is otherwise normal often make do with reading glasses for their near vision issues. If, however, you already suffer from nearsightedness, you now need lenses that can correct your vision at multiple distances simultaneously. Bifocals and trifocals solve this problem by positioning separate corrective "segments" in different parts of the lens. The disadvantage to this approach is the intrusive (and obvious) appearance of lines separating each segment.

No line lenses live up to their nickname by doing away with the separate segments. Instead, these lenses offer one smooth gradation between your distance prescription (at the top of the lens) through all possible fields to your near vision prescription (at the bottom of the lens). These progressive lenses give you a clear, natural view of the world and finer vision correction at any given distance than you could get from just two or three segments. They also hide the fact that you even need this form of age-related correction.

What to Expect from Your No Line Lenses

Our Redding eye doctor, Dr. Michael Young, can confirm that you have presbyopia by conducting an eye and vision exam. When you first receive your glasses, you may need to get used to looking directly at objects, since peripheral vision isn't corrected by progressive lenses. Your brain will also have to tune out a certain "swim" effect from the lenses' curvature. If these lenses just aren't for you, our eye doctor can swap them out for bifocals or trifocals.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I'm from out of town; stopped by this office to have glasses adjusted. Beth assisted me with this. As I waited, I checked out their large selection of eyeglasses trying on pretty much everything they had in Fendi, Gucci, Caviar etc. I had gone for an eye exam last June but did not get prescription filled as I was not comfortable with the diagnosis or the service provided by LensCrafters. Beth gave me exceptional customer service! Because of this, her experience and professionalism I went ahead and had another eye exam, bought new eyeglasses and I'm very pleased and happy with the diagnosis and my new eyewear. Thank you to Dr Michael Young, Beth and the rest of his staff. Everyone extremely friendly and helpful. Great experience!!!"
