Have you been thinking about getting eyeglasses with progressive lenses? Have you heard that they can help you to see better, and are interested in learning more about them? If so, come visit us at Metropolitan Optical. We provide our interested patients with progressive lenses in Washington D.C.

At Metropolitan Optical, our optometrist is Dr. Saba Ayalew. She is an expert in the area of progressive lenses in Washington D.C. and is able to help you understand the benefits of these eyeglass lenses. Progressive lenses make many eyeglass options possible, and seamless. For example, progressive lenses allow you to get bifocal vision without the look of bifocals. Many people do not like to have bifocal glasses as they used to be quite unattractive and shout to the world that you need to wear bifocals; in other words they shout, “I’m getting old.” The obvious line or delineation of the reading glass section is not appealing to many people. Not only do progressive lenses look better; they help increase edge-to-edge clarity and offer a full range of vision correction. The wearer is able to see up close objects as well as those that are at a distance. You do not need to take off your regular glasses and put on another to see something up close. And you do not need to look over your bifocals to see something far away when you are wearing your reading glasses. Progressive lenses provide a more natural vision experience and are more flattering to the wearer as well.

Progressive lenses in Washington D.C. are a type of multifocal lenses. They provide a progression of lens strength, so that you can actually see at any distance, rather than at just two different options. In fact with progressive lenses you will look up to see far away clearly, look ahead for intermediate vision, and look down to read or complete other activities that are close up. These slight eye movements will become second nature in literally no time. People get used to using progressive lenses almost immediately. There is really no learning curve at all. There are many different types of progressive lenses available, all designed to meet different vision needs. Our optometrist, Dr. Ayalew, will be able to write your prescription so that you will receive the greatest benefit from your progressive lenses. And our opticians will be able to use our new technology to take accurate measurements of your eyes, to ensure just the right placement of the lens in the frame. If you would like to benefit from all that progressive lenses offer, contact Metropolitan Optical today for an appointment with Dr. Ayalew.
