Progressive lenses have been designed to avoid the hassle of constantly having to remove one pair of spectacles for another. But, even some progressive lenses have their limitations as blurring can still occur when using peripheral vision. Here are a few examples:
- You’re in the kitchen preparing a meal. As you chop the veg, you need to follow the recipe on the tablet a foot or so away. Most of us would prefer not to have to constantly raise our heads to read the recipe, but simply lift our eyes and look through the uppermost part of our lenses. However, constant head movement is generally unavoidable with standard progressive lenses.
- You’re in a business meeting, sitting at the end of the board room table watching the presentation on the screen at the far end of the room. Your colleagues are sitting on either side of the table, but you find that the ones closest to you at either side are blurred.
- You still need to take your glasses off sometimes when leaving your desk.
We spend over 90% of our time indoors either at home or at work and Nikon have developed an advanced range of lenses to deliver the ultimate clarity for day to day living – the range is called Home & Office Neo.
