    I can wear any progressive from Image and Navigatior to Physio and Varilux X. I have pair in Ideal. It’s my least favorite progressive. So don’t feel you need to keep them in something similar.

  12. Do you lower progressive fitting heights on tall patients?

    I don’t and it doesn’t seem to be a problem but I understand some opticians do. What about sunglasses? I also rarely lower fitting heights in sunglasses. I tried a lower height in a pair of suns for...

    Interesting about letting the XTRActive darken outside first is interesting. I’ve never compared- will have to try. I’ve ordered my free kit but I’m not sure if it actually contains lens samples.
