progressive contact lenses have to lower your expectations abit.
cant expect best of both worlds (far and near clear)
but it will give a decent level of vision

get adapted to your progressives earlier by making one and using it early.
once you use a progressive lens with a good design, you won't ever downgrade.. only upgrade

zoff is value for money.
quality wise im not too sure as the company manufactures their own


quality wise is really subjective.. and also depend on your life habits and environment. at that price point, can't really complain much if the quality falls short compared to other shops.
just go to whichever shop/ or wherever theres a staff who can make you feel comfortable and at ease while going through the process. from the eye test, to the choosing of frame etc.

You have a point. Thatís what the optometrist said too. Now Iím only having problems with near vision and small fonts. Would need prog lenses eventually.

progressive lenses do have their limitations as well.
what they provide is more of a convenience.
for long term near work e.g reading documents long term, a separate pair would be more advisable as it is easy on your eyes and neck

to add on to bro thegarden3b's post,
Office lenses are usually recommended for people who do computer & near work for long hours daily.


We'll also factor in your daily working distance to derive the best range for your office lens. (E.g. how far is your computer, how often do you need to stand up and walk around room, etc..)

Is your Sunglasses Full framed or the Frame-less facet diamond-Cut?

The latter is harder to do at most shops and only certain places will be able to
do it.
