    Progressive Lenses For Today’s Pilots

    Some pilots struggle with peripheral blurriness and progressives, as many appear more acutely aware of their vision. In your professional opinion, what’s the best lens manufacturers that offer the greatest visual acuity for people in eye-intensive occupations? What has worked with past pilot patients in terms of progressive segment customization / corridor adjustments?

    First, what ^they^ said.

    Second, I've made glasses for a lot of pilots over the years and, generally speaking, pilots and progressives are a bad, bad combination. There are exceptions but they're rare.

    Third, I love it when customers come in an attempt to politely explain why their sight is a bit more important than everyone else's. FlyerEyes, you vision requirements just ain't that special.
