I dealt with progressive lenses for four days before deciding there is no way I can do this. The complete loss of peripheral vision, dizziness, nausea, and post-it note sized clear vision field when working on a computer were horrific. My job depends upon my being able to quickly utilize two computer screens while typing information from paper on a stand. This is impossible to do when only able to see a post-it note sized section of screen/paper at a time. I had lasic eye-surgery 13 years ago and continue to have good distance vision that needs very little correction. It has only been recently that I have ended up with blurry vision and headaches after working on the computer all day. It frustrates me that the optometrist did not inform me of the loss of peripheral vision with progressive lenses and the option of getting single vision lenses for computer use only. The single vision lenses are now on order, but I certainly wish I'd never even attempted the nightmare of progressive lenses.
