Hi Guys,
Is it a must to make progressive lens above aged 40?
I'm turning 41, looking for recommendations on lenses and optical shops.
my degree is around 4.75 and will be using my frame.
Lens wise not too expensive.....
TIA
Progressive lenses is optional. Would be recommended if you start having difficulties viewing at near. If near is still quite ok, then its not a "must" but a "good-to-have".

Depending on the size, your frame may not be suitable for progressive lens. U need to check with your optician.

Price looks good.

If you require Blue Absorb as well, can consider Asahi Lite UV3G Sunfilter/ Kodak Evoblue
Turns dark under the sun and filters out 94% HEV light too.

Yes, some do. However it does not come with astig correction and if the power of both eyes are different, you might need to purchase 2 to swap the lenses to balance out the power.

However usually when swimming you dont need full sharpness clarity thus you usually need something lower. e.g. -2.00 just take a -1.50 goggles will do the job well.

My Varilux Physio 3 progressive is super discomfort. Desk bound is merely acceptable but outdoor is terrible especially night vision is blurry.
What other options could I get for good outdoor and night vision with progressive lenses?
