Ranking keeps changing. Luan liao.
We were about distance indoor and outdoor ranking. But you are talking about near/intermediate. I rest my case on this. I hope another practitioner or your current one can explain to you better.
Cheers!

Sorry seannie, I feel you have been very sarcastic all these while. Hopefully I got the wrong idea, but anyway this is a forum so who’s to say right?
Have a good evening man.

I might have silly questions. Why have a pair of progressives for work (desk / computer) instead of a general progressive (my style) ? Both lenses are above 1k?

Morning, this is a really good qns actually.

mystyle profile/v+ as a progressive has a really wide distance/intermediate/near zone. However as wide as they are, there will still be peripheral distortion, also depending if the individual is a shortsighted or longsighted. Short sighted individuals will experience lesser distortion on the progressives but the reason is pretty complex. Thus as wide as the field of view is, there is still it’s limit, thus for heavy duty computer users or more sensitive individuals, that’s when computer lenses come in.
Computer lenses as it name suggests, is usually for individuals who does more computer and near work. Thus it generally sacrifices the distance portion and replaces it with the intermediate portion. Effectively give you a very large intermediate zone so you don’t have to tilt your head/chin up much to view your computer screen/near.
That helps to reduce neck pain and headaches for many individual. Computer lenses are much cheaper starting from 250 onwards, it depends on your prescription too if you need high index or not and also the tier of computer lens you choose.
Hope this helps.
