What Are Adjustable Glasses and How Do They Work
What Are Adjustable Glasses?
Are you over age 40 and unhappy with your current glasses for the presbyopia correction? Most people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism need progressive lenses to see objects clearly. But some are frustrated by the relatively limited field of view these and other multifocal lenses provide for intermediate and near vision.
And, those people with presbyopia also have problems. They often are frustrated by forgetting to bring their reading glasses or are constantly needing to put them on and take them off to see clearly at a different distance.
If you also have the same trouble, here is some good news. You can use multifocal eyeglasses to solve these problems and give you clear, unobstructed vision at any distance with just a simple turn of a dial inside the eyeglasses frame.
And these glasses are called adjustable glasses or adjustable focus glasses. They are a versatile and affordable solution to correcting minor vision problems. They compensate for presbyopia and other refractive errors like farsightedness and nearsightedness. They are non-prescription glasses designed for everyday use.
You can see the top to look far away and look down to see near objects clearly because different portions of lenses offer different types of correction. With adjustable glasses, you have one focal length that varies depending on where you are looking.
Anyone can wear adjustable glasses, but they are especially beneficial for people who cannot afford regular glasses or for those who live in areas where regular glasses are not accessible.
How Do Adjustable Glasses Work?
Adjustable glasses are featured with the fluid-filled lens technology that lets you adjust the power of the lens based on the correction level you need. You can twist the dial until you can see clearly. So, adjustable glasses are also called dial vision glasses.
Each of the lenses on adjustable glasses has a membrane that moves outward or inward based on how much fluid the lens contains. The liquid comes from a small syringe connected to each arm of the glasses. You move the dial to pump fluid in or out of the lens. As fluid enters the lens, the lens’s power increases. This can correct farsightedness. Pumping the fluid out can correct nearsightedness.
The principle of adjustable glasses is the same as vision ability. You change the physical shape of the lens just as the physical shape of the eyeball so as to correct your vision.
Types of Adjustable Glasses
Adjustable glasses come in different types including adjustable reading glasses, adjustable focus glasses and adjustable focus reading glasses.
Adjustable reading glasses have an adjustable focal length and compensate for refractive errors. They provide variable focusing so you can adjustable them for desired distance and prescription. They are often used for reading because you do not need to adjust the position of your eyes.
Adjustable focus glasses offer an adjustable focal length. They are used to correct refractive errors including presbyopia. They provide variable focusing so as to adjust the glasses for seeing things close up or far away.
Adjustable focus reading glasses are the same as adjustable reading glasses. You can adjust the dials of the glasses so you do not need to reposition your eyes to see objects clearly in the near or far.
