What Is Plastic Lens?
In the above part, we have introduced what polycarbonate lenses are. In this section, we will show you what the plastic lens is.
The plastic lens was first introduced in 1947. Since then, plastic has become a popular and widely used material for making eyeglasses lenses. Since the introduction and use of plastic lenses, it has sealed its mark as the most preferred choice in the optical industry.
Plastic lenses are light. With this feature, plastic lenses are popular because they will not be heavy inside the glasses frame and permit for an easy fit in any type of glasses frame. In addition, plastic glasses are cheap and easy to obtain in desired amounts. So, they are affordable for most people. Plastic lenses are very durable. So, they do not shatter easily on impact which makes it a great choice for individuals who are active or tend to drop their glasses often.
However, compared with other lens materials, plastic lenses are usually thick due to their low index of refraction. The soft feature of plastic glasses makes them susceptible to scratching from a sharp object and why scratch-resistant coating is applied to form an additional protective layer. Plastic lenses do not provide ultraviolet protection.
Kirkland Signature™ HD Digital Progressive Lenses
They use the latest lens manufacturing technology to provide high-definition vision at any distance. Giving you sharper vision in all conditions, all lenses have anti-reflection treatment, and they have superior scratch resistance and superior quality. The lenses help provide a greater reading area and less distortion than standard lenses. And they give each lens a cosmetically attractive appearance.
Single Vision vs Progressive: What Are Their Differences
In this part, we will show you some differences between single vision and progressive lenses. They differ in several factors, so here we will compare them one by one.
Progressive lenses generally have their reading zones just in the lower half of the lenses, while single vision glasses have the reading power all over the lens. So if you are working on something above your head and you need to see some small details, the progressive lenses will not work. And you can not see through the reading zone in progressive you need to switch to single vision reading glasses.
Single vision glasses are cheap than progressive lenses. Compared to progressive glasses, single vision glasses hold way fewer distortions in the periphery. So, there is no need to customize the lens design to the max. In addition, single vision glasses are often available in the optical store while the progressive often needs to be produced for you. In other words, the delivery time of single vision lenses will be shorter for you.
You can use your progressive glasses optimally just in an upright posture. As soon as you lay down on your couch, this will lead to blurry vision. The reason is your changed position which forces you to look lower through the lenses on the screen. However, with single vision glasses, you can change to an upright position and it would not be a problem anymore. You can position yourself on your couch as comfortably as you want and you can still see clearly with your single vision distance glasses.
About the early domestic anti-reflection coating lens
Chinese coated lenses appeared in the mid-1980s. At that time, Europe (such as France and Germany) and Asia (such as Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan) had already launched coated lenses to the market, and the grade of lenses was evaluated based on the quality of the anti-reflection effect. Among them, Germany and France were the two leading countries in technology. Technically, the use of French original film material (referred to as H2) can reduce the effect by 99.98% (refers to the light transmittance, the same below). Almost you can not see the reflection, but the material is expensive. Therefore, the coating lens which is currently used in the world is born. The anti-reflection effect is controlled at about 98%, so the coating cost is greatly reduced. And it is accepted by consumers because it presents various colors, especially green. At the same time, because at the same time, it can be easily distinguished from non-coated lenses. It can reflect the high-grade film lens, and it is accepted by the sales staff.
More and more people wear glasses frames, and the style and color of glasses frames broke through the traditional and stuffy model. They began to pursue fashion design and integrate into a variety of fashion elements. Let myopia glasses wearers can not only correct vision but highlight their different style temperament through the wearing of glasses.
What Are Varifocal Glasses?
Varifocal glasses, also known as varifocals, varifocal lenses, PALs, or progressive lenses, have a gradual change in strength from the top of the lens to the bottom with multiple focal points in between. This allows you to see all distances and focus points through just one lens. Varifocal lenses are typically used when you have two prescriptions, one for distance and one for reading.
There are three regions of a varifocal lens which are distant zone, intermediate zone and, near/reading zone. Usually, the upper portion of the varifocal lens is the distant zone and the bottom portion of the varifocal lens is the near or reading zone.
One of the benefits of varifocal glasses is that you do not need to prepare 2 separate pairs of glasses or need to switch between frames for different vision needs.
