Progressive Lenses


If fine print keeps getting fuzzier, you may have presbyopia, a common condition that used to be corrected with bifocal lenses. These ‘lined’ lenses let you focus on both near and distant objects, but everything in between was blurred. And everybody stared at those lines across your eyes.

Progressive or ‘no-line’ eyeglass lenses have a gradual curvature across the lens surface and provide not only clearer vision at near and far distances, but also smooth, comfortable transitions in between.

Today you can find factory molded progressive lenses at many major retailers, made for average prescription powers, standard fitting parameters, and limited frame sizes. Fortunately, all progressive lenses are not created equal.


We’ve taken a research-oriented approach to progressive lens development. Rather than relying on traditional lens making techniques, we’ve revolutionized progressive lens design technology, enabling HOYA-certified Eye Care Professionals to offer a mo

We’ve even developed a line of customized progressive lenses, made possible by our HOYALUX iD technology. This new technique analyzes and then simulates the way your eyes see. Then our patented Integrated Double Surface design process (IDS) shapes your new lenses exclusively for the way you view the world. It’s the first technology to shape your lens design on both the front and back surface, which results in more comfortable transitions between near and far distances, noticeably wider viewing zones, and the virtual elimination of blurring and swaying sensations in your peripheral vision.
