Nikon lenses offer 2 types of lenses for single vision: spherical and aspheric/multi-aspheric lenses. Aspherical lenses are flatter and thinner then spherical lenses and have two distinct advantages:
- Better vision. They have less distortion around the edges of the lenses, which allows for sharper vision.
- A more attractive look. They have less magnification, so they have less impact on your appearance
Progressive lenses allow people to see clearly at all distances (near, far and mid-distance) with the same pair of glasses. The top part of the lens is for distance, the centre of the lens is for intermediate (computer and TV) and the bottom of the lens is for reading.
With progressive lenses there is “dead” space on the sides of the lenses. Using conventional progressive lenses this dead space can be a big distortion to your vision. With Nikon SeeMax power progressive lenses this dead space is reduced to a smaller area.
There are two types of Nikon progressive lenses to choose from. Universal lenses are “ready-to-wear” lenses and are suitable for most people. Personalised progressive lenses are made to fit a persons’ individual characteristics such as, pupillary distance, height, angle and curvature of the frame, distance between lenses and the eye and reading distance. These lenses have high-definition vision that is even closer to a natural vision.
