Mid-distance glasses or proximity glasses
Degressive glasses, what are they?
Proximity glasses or degressive glasses come from a lens technology originating from progressive lenses; these glasses make it possible to offer more or less young presbyopes a clear multi-distance vision:
- perfect near vision for reading and precision work
- close vision for work on screen, to read sheet music for musicians...
- intermediate vision to see your interlocutor or colleague correctly without taking off your glasses.
These glasses are an innovation for 21st century presbyopes because they allow you to work comfortably in front of screens. The design of these lenses helps the wearer in his daily life by avoiding neck pain thanks to a more physiological head posture.
Indeed progressive glasses are not the preferred equipment for working in front of a computer, you are obliged to adopt a head bearing resembling that of a "turtle". Opting for a pair of proximity glasses means opting for additional comfort.
Presbyopia looking for visual comfort in front of screens
Many new presbyopes who had no visual problem are reluctant to wear glasses with progressive lenses. Indeed they do not feel any discomfort for far vision activities such as sports, driving... their need is for near and intermediate vision . For them, rather than choosing basic single vision near vision lenses, it is smart to choose degressive glasses with these lenses specially designed for screen work and reading . These glasses, also called semi-progressive glasses by many ophthalmologists, allow the patient to adapt gently to the geometry of multi-distance lenses.
Indeed, 60% of presbyopes use a computer and glasses that are not necessarily suitable for near vision. 75% of them experience visual fatigue after a day in front of the computer.
Proximity glass is therefore preferred for people with presbyopia who spend many hours in front of a screen .
