• Is it OK to switch back and forth between progressive and regular pairs of glasses?


    Question:

    Is it OK to switch back and forth between progressive and regular pairs of glasses? I am getting progressive lenses for the first time. I'd also like to get a new second pair that has a smaller lens size and thus is less suitable for progressive lenses (and also prescription sunglasses). Apart from convenience for reading, would my eyes adapt fine to going back and forth between progressive and regular lenses?


    Answer:

    I would regularly wear the progressive first to get used to it and then begin the switching. It usually takes most people 4 to 8 weeks to adapt.
