Progressive lenses and single vision lenses
An optical lens that has only one luminosity on a single vision lens and does not have special functions.
The curvature of the front surface of the progressive lens increases continuously from top to bottom, and the refractive power increases gradually and continuously from the distance zone located on the upper part of the lens until the near zone at the bottom of the lens reaches the required near-use refractive power. A pair of glasses can be used. You can see far away, you can see close, and you can see objects in the middle distance.

How to Test Computer Glasses (Clear Glasses)
First, we will show you how to test computer glasses with clear glasses.
1. Ask for Blue Light Glasses Brand Spectrum Report
To find out whether your blue light glasses are the best computer glasses, you should contact the company you bought them from and ask for a spectrum report. It will show you how much blue light your computer glasses can block.
After sending the spectrum report to you, you should make sure that your computer glasses are able to filter at least 30% blue light, otherwise, they are unsafe.
2. Use the Lens Reflection Test
As for how to test computer glasses, you can use the lens reflection test. You can see what color the light is that reflecting off the lenses.
If it reflects the blue light, they are filtering some blue light. If the reflection is violent or purple, the computer glasses may be not effective.
This is a good way for you to perform a blue light test at home.
The origin of modern eyeglasses
The origins of modern glasses can be traced back more than 1,000 years. In the Middle Ages, the reading stones used by monks were glass spheres, sometimes filled with water and placed on objects to magnify them.Glassblowers in Italy created reading stones, similar to modern hand-held magnifying glasses. The reading stone can be placed on the wearer's nose or in front of the face. Later, Spanish craftsmen built the first cobra-framed temple in the 17th century. They tie ribbons or strings to the frames and tie them around the user's ear.
In the 18th century, Edward Scarlett created the first wearable glasses, providing more comfort for eyewear wearers. These early glasses had glass lenses embedded in heavy frames made of wood, lead, or copper. Natural materials of leather, bone, and horn were later used to make the frames. In the early seventeenth century, lighter steel frames were invented. As eyewear continued to evolve and prescription accuracy improved, the trend for eyewear to become more fashionable began. In the 18th century, bifocal lenses appeared, making it possible to correct upper myopia and lower presbyopia. Later glasses were designed to be fixed by a ribbon or by applying pressure to the bridge of the nose. In the 1980s, plastic lenses were introduced, providing a more durable alternative to glass lenses. Ultimately, the glasses used today are the result of centuries of technological and intellectual advances.
What Are Anti-Glare Glasses?
Anti-glare glasses are made with lenses that have an anti-glare coating or anti-reflective coating. This is an extremely thin layer placed on the lens itself so as to remove any reflections you might see from the surface of the glasses. This improves your vision by reducing the amount of glare that reflects off of your lenses.
The Advantages of Aspheric Lenses
From the above, you have learned some basic information about aspheric lenses. In this section, we will show you some advantages of the aspherical lens. Apart from the style of aspheric lenses, most people choose them because the following reasons:
- Improved performance
- Spherical aberration correction
- Slimmer and thinner profile
- More frame options
- Improved image quality
- Sleeker profile
- Lightweight and comfortable
- More natural appearance
- Improved peripheral vision
- Multiple lens designs to choose from
So, aspheric lenses come at a lot of advantages. However, everything has two sides. Hence, there are some negative voices of aspherical lens. Therefore, in the following section, we will show you the disadvantages of the aspheric lenses.
Look at the quality of the frame.
Put the glasses flat in front of your eyes, and see if the color of the temples is different in-depth or light under the same light intensity. Sometimes, due to the mistakes in processing, the color asymmetry of the left and right temples will appear.Technology is the quality assurance of the frame, and a frame of fine technology is often reflected in the details.Pay more attention to the welding point near the metal frame to see if there are cracks.
The thermal effect during welding changes the stress structure of the material, or the weld defect, material fatigue, and so on will make it easy to fracture.Attention should be paid to see if the two sides of the stipules of the lens frame are symmetrical and if the fixation is safe.
