Progressive lenses are a special type of lens that provides clear and dynamic vision for all distances – near and far – with just one pair of glasses.

Progressive lenses are also called multifocal and consist of three areas of vision, with no visible line of separation for an excellent aesthetic look and maximum comfort.

  • Near: Looking down will give a clear vision for the near.
  • Intermediate: It is the central portion of the lens to achieve perfect vision at medium distance.
  • Far: It is the upper portion of the lens to attain a sharp vision for the far.

Why choose a mountain eyewear for mountaineering and hiking with progressive lenses?

For those who practice mountaineering and hiking, there are various solutions for correcting various visual defects. Generally, compromises have often been made because the clip system was not large enough to mount a progressive lens and so one had to make do with a single focus or bifocal lens to correct myopia, which often reduced the comfort in reading the instrumentation, or by using direct gradation of frames that were often not very technical in mountaineering or hiking, and not very attractive.

Demon has developed more solutions for both men and women through direct gradation to the mount (base 6) for the fitting of progressive lenses. The technical aspect of the progressive eyeglasses for the hiker and mountaineer is essential to ensure perfect vision of the path and maximum protection from: Air, cold, ice and all the hazards faced in the mountains and high mountains.
Furthermore, the glasses should be comfortable for prolonged use and effectively resist fogging.

The aesthetic aspect is however as important as the technical aspect of glasses and lenses.
Demon is constantly researching and developing in the creation of new aesthetically aggressive yet functional designs.

Reading the instruments

Often the hiker and mountaineer who use progressive lenses in everyday life, in the practice of outdoor activities have had to settle for using a spectacle with monofocal / bifocal lenses or non-technical frames to mount progressive lenses.

With single vision lenses it was impossible to read the instrumentation, so certain technologies had to be given up. With the advent of the latest generation of instrumentation, reading the screen is almost essential in order to keep all the parameters (mandatory safety systems for mountaineering) under control. Choosing hiking and mountaineering glasses with progressive lenses for your discipline not only guarantees perfect vision even of the instruments, but also allows you to concentrate solely on total immersion in nature.
