Presentation Synopsis

Plenty of optical dispensers will tell you that they spend more time trying to satisfy their progressive wearers than any other category of patient. If this resonates with you and your colleagues, then this webinar is for you. Having a better understanding of modern progressive lens design is key to getting it right the first time which will not only save you time, but will enhance the overall satisfaction of your patients.

This webinar provides a comprehensive overview of progressive lenses, highlighting their advantages in seamless vision correction across varying distances. It explores key considerations in selecting the right design for individual patients, emphasising five critical factors: 

* Refractive error

* Occupation and recreational activities

* Corridor design

* Patient posture and

* Abbe value of lens materials. 

During this session, Michael will also introduce you to the intricate lens designing process, including the ins and outs of lens mapping. Additionally, he will examine the impact of the addition on progressive lens design while using case studies and practical examples to illustrate successful applications of progressive lenses.
