While no one likes the idea of growing old, the truth is it is inevitable. With aging also comes a plethora of health problems that cannot be ignored. For many turning 40 and over, unable to clearly focus on specific objects often leads to serious concerns.

The condition is known as presbyopia due to the lens of the eye becomes stiff as you age. Progressive contact lenses (which is also known as progressive kontaktlinser in the Norwegian language) receiving the three lines of vision, however, help to restore vision and ability to regain visual focus.

So what exactly are progressive lenses? The lenses are very similar to two and double trifocals home. Whether you need help with reading up close things or focus on objects at a greater distance, progressive lenses help you to better focus on the task at hand.

The real difference with progressive lenses is the fact that the contacts do not provide instant and immediate relief; rather, it is necessary to let your eyes slowly get used to the lenses over time.

If you are thinking of progressive lenses to relieve the symptoms associated with presbyopia, but not sure if they are for you, consider the following:

Make an appointment with your eye doctor when you notice changes in your vision. Discuss the advantages of progressive lenses before making a final decision.

Ask your eye doctor for a free sample of lenses before making a larger investment, particularly for holders for the first time contact lens.

Always follow your doctor's instructions when fitting progressive lenses. Generally, you do not wear contacts for a few hours every day until your eyes are fully fit for purpose.
