I could not find an appropriate place for this post so please don't flame me.
I wear progressive lenses... I also have a pair of single vision glasses (i am farsighted).

I have been advised not to play with progressive lenses. I'm sure that there are many of you who use corrective lenses and I would be curious to know if any of use play with progressives.

thanks.. and sorry for posting in racquets forum

I wear progressive lenses - but not when I'm playing tennis (or any other sport). I tried several times shortly after getting my glasses, but there just seemed to be too much distortion between where the ball "looked like" it was, and where it actually was. I've had no problems playing without them.

The first year I couldn't play with them. I just used my previous single vision glasses. The next year I tried playing with them again and mysteriously, I was able to play without any problem.

I have purchased single vision powered goggles (courtesy SAMs Club) which I use instead of the progressive lens when I play.
