    Progressive lenses, no intermediate

    Title says it all, is there a progressive lens that completely skips the intermediate? I seem to remember a Laramy K video that came out recently that had something like this.

    .....one of out patients wants to be able to drive and look at his phone at the same time. Some people.

    DAL lens. I would contact https://questopticallab.com/ they seem to be the ones developing the DAL.

    Of course a bifocal would be the easiest and most cost effective way of helping them crash their car.

    Duo, but watch the distortion. You can't introduce plus that fast without lava lamp distortion.

    Also could run any modern Freeform design, and have a lowest corridor length. Doing that will of course put up distortion at lens edge, however, if wants lenses to drive and look at phone, pretty sure client just don't g a f




    Sorry if I sound harsh but I lost both my parents from a truck driver, trying to read his phone and drive at same time.

    This dude straight up doesn't care. I certainly hope he was at least half way kidding, but I kinda doubt it. One of the more bizarre patients I've had.

    Try the newer version of the Compact or Ultra which are now the Synchrony Easy M Compact or Synchrony Easy S Ultra and set the seg as high as any other progressive. I've had many successful
    patients in this lens.

    This does sound like a job for the Shamir Duo.

    What about an old fashioned no line bifocal? Nice, wide distant vision and relatively large reading area.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I think we may go with the duo for this idiosyncratic patient.
