Can I improve my Physio experience?

    I just got my first set of progressives (44 yrs old), and distance
    vision is great, reading at about 12" is fine.

    I'm having some trouble though, with the intermediate distances (I'm
    guessing 18-22") with peripheral blurriness...there's just a very
    narrow area that's in focus.
    Also, the lower outer quadrants of both sides are blurry at any
    distance.
    but I'm trying to figure out the best way to move ahead, since I do
    spend many hours at the computer which seems to be in the intermediate
    range.

    Is there a certain material that works better than others? Would the
    360 lenses be noticeably different? Thanks for any insight anyone's
    got.

    Here's what I've got:
    OD: -2.00 = -0.50 X 81 ADD 1.25
    OS: -1.50= -0.75 X 115 ADD 1.25

    Silhouette frames (rimless), standard Physio (not 360).

    I don't know the material, but it does appear to be high-index of some
    sort with a good antireflective coating.

    Near the bridge:
    Marking on right lens: "H" then what appears like a lowercase "e" with
    three 'sunburst' lines drawn away from it
    Marking on left lens: the little "e" with suburst lines and the number
    "
    6"

    Both lenses have the number 12 etched at the outer edge.

  2. the material is probably the right choice, i doubt that all else equal
    the 360 will make much difference.
    if you just got them i would suggest you keep on trying as these can
    take a while to get used to.

    Thanks,

    I'll keep playing around with my seating position and may slowly get
    used to turning my head a lot more...in the end I may still want to
    get some single-vision computer glasses...
