• Are progressive lenses challenging for someone with nystagmus?


    Question:

    If I have nystagmus, would progressive lenses make it more difficult to focus compared to bifocals?


    Answer:

    No. Think of the progressive lenses as a hi-tech bifocal. Nystagmus should not affect your ability to focus, although they can take a few weeks to get used to for any patient.
