Las Vegas, NV -- Younger Optics received two OLA Awards of Excellence this year at the annual OLA Awards of Excellence meeting on September 22nd in Las Vegas, NV. This marks the OLA Awards of Excellence 25th anniversary. During these 25 years, Younger Optics has received a total of 24 Awards of Excellence.

One of the awards presented to Younger Optics this year was in the Best in Lens Design category for the ADAGE® Progressive Lens. This is Younger’s third award in this category.

ADAGE® is an ultra-short progressive lens design for smaller aesthetic frames, specially engineered to offer a superior, balanced combination of far, intermediate, and near fields of view. A fitting height of only 13mm allows new progressive wearers to keep their favorite frames without losing optical performance. A near zone that is wider than other short designs and an ultra-wide distance region make this progressive a significant advancement in the field of short progressive lenses. Progressive lens wearers enjoy the benefit of these lenses’ big functional zones with excellent and stable optical properties. These special features allow wearers to maintain a more natural eye position for every viewing distance. For more information on ADAGE® Progressive lenses, visit
