    Anybody care to comment on all the claims being made by J&J on their new
    Definity brand of progressives? In particular, how do they compare to other
    brands with a reputation for wide viewing angle (for instance, I have the
    Rodenstock Life2 progressive which offered a world of difference from the
    Varilux being offered at the time.)

    What new lenses (in PC) are available that have a reputation for wider
    distortion free viewing? (I only have vision in one eye so I use all the
    lens I can).

    Anybody want to comment on the likelyhood of somebody inventing some
    surgical procedure down the road that would make presbyobia go away? I
    never really thought about glasses until I started wearing bifocals...and
    while I'm use to them now, I am consicously aware of blurred vision in many
    places that I look. I guess I'm lazy but I'm tired of turning my head this
    way and that to see something.

    According to a 1/15/04 article at www.osnsupersite.com...

    "Recent Premarket Approvals - Officials at eyeonics, formerly C&C
    Vision, announced that the company received FDA approval for its
    CrystaLens accommodative IOL, the first accommodative IOL to be
    marketed in the United States."

    I figure 100% How difficult can it be to put in a new lens and attach it
    to the existing muscles? I'm assuming that the problem is due to an aging
    of the lens, which I'm not that sure about.

    I also predict that this will either not happen in my lifetime, or else
    not be common.

    Thanks so much. Is the 1.60 suitable for a Silhouette frame?
