The top progressive lens brands include Digital, Seiko, Xperio, Shamir, Hoya, Sola, Kodak, Zeiss, Younger and Varilux. Varilux is advertised as the top progressive lens brand due to the technology and research used in manufacturing a lens that will create a sharp image and smooth transition from different distances.
Varilux was the first company to provide progressive lenses in 1959. The technology used to manufacture these lenses is patented to the company that eliminates distortion that is identified thorough the manufacturing process. Progressive lenses are designed to create a natural vision in those who have lost the ability to see images that are near them.
