Progressive is another option. It depends on each individual progression of presbyopia power. At such an early age from 37-40 it (presbyopia power) should increase at a steady pace thus if you don’t mind paying more to use a progressive lens then by all means.
Adaptation is harder as compared to a digital lens but if you can adapt to it well then it be perfect. At that age group also your presbyopia power should fall around +1.00-+1.25 which fits the digital lens category so you can consider between a Long term benefit or a mid-term benefit.

Based on what I see. Most get stable around 50 onwards! Usually in the range of(Lao Hua/presbyopia) +2.00-+2.50(average) sometimes even higher.

Specs broke so gonna have to make a new pair. Previous pair was crizal prevencia lens is that still a respectable tier of lens? Totally lost with all the different types. The crizal lens seem to attract dirt easily so was wondering if any other lens will be recommended instead. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, pretty decent. Sometimes, if the lenses are still in good condition, can find a frame of similar design to try to fit the lenses in to salvage the lenses.
I wouldn't say attract dust... All stuff will have dust on it.. Kind of inevitable. If you are happy with prevencia can stick with it. If not can upgrade to other brands e.g zeiss/hoya blue protect/control

Itís been almost 2 years so might as well take the opportunity to try other style of frames as well so Hoya blue control = crizal prevencia? Would like to try another brand of lens this time round
