Being new to HPDE but old to wearing glasses, I am hoping for some information now that my prescription has changed and I need new lenses.

without going too deep, I wear progressive lenses with a prism correction. My question is should I continue with the progressive type correction or just far vision with a bifocal for any near reading I might have to do. Would that potentially improve my far driving vision by giving me a larger (potentially) lens to see through.

Thanks in advance.

OP, you need the advice from the Unicorn. That means finding an MD specializing in ophtalmology that has hobby of trying to kill him or herself on the racetrack. Unicorn indeed.

Here's a suggestion. I do not need any special lenses, but I must wear prescription glasses and sunglasses on the track. Newer generation helmets (like Bell's M8) have a made groove in the inner foam to accomodate glasses. The imperative is that the piece going past your ear to the back of your head is totally straight, no curvature behind your earlobe.

I bought 4 pairs for track driving at Zenni dot com.

Good luck!

progressive gives you full vision not 2 spots
bi-focals has a cutoff on off line
I used to used them, cheaper but not as good
