Default Zeiss for those that need correction

I was able to maintain my near vision until 51. I have never been able to see at a distance. I was recommended Zeiss polycarbonate lenses in a multifocus progressive configuration. The high quality polycarbonate lenses along with a non-glare coating are scratch resistant but not scratch proof. I am able to see 100% at any distance. I also have sunglass with the same lenses. They run around $400 per lense but they are definately worth it.

Yes, I understand how that could be a problem, there are those who just can't get past my stunning good looks and Adonis-like physique.

I'm afraid it's just a cross I have to bear.....

From the interweb:

"Glass lenses weigh more and if you drop your glasses they may shatter because Glass is the least shatterproof. But, Glass lenses give you the best optics, in other words you get better visual acuity through a Glass lens, and they do not scratch as easily as plastic or polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate lenses are thinner and lighter and are shatterproof, most optical, you go to will also call them impact resistant which is the same thing.You can take a hammer and smack a polycarbonate lens with it and it will not break, so they are the safest lens when it comes to impact resistance, but once you smack it with that hammer you will not be able to see through it because it will be scratched up and dented.
Polycarbonate lenses are very soft and pliable that's why they're impact resistant, but they also scratch the easiest, so it is a must that you use proper cleaning methods with a polycarbonate lens or their only going to last about 10 minutes. And for some people they have some inherent distortion that they cannot tolerate, also some people complain about chromatic aberrations as well. So although they are the safest you are going to sacrifice some visual acuity with a polycarbonate lens."
