Different Types of Progressive Lenses
The first progressive lenses we want to introduce are computer progressive lenses, which are designed for clear vision in office settings. These lenses are ideal when using a computer for over 4 hours a day and help to reduce eye strain.
Computer progressive lenses are intended for indoor use and should not be worn over your regular glasses. The drawback to this is it requires you to have two separate pairs of eyeglasses.
Acetate cellulose pellets are extruded by an injection molding machine, which is called an injection frame. Its characteristic is that it saves raw materials, can be mass-produced, has a lower cost, and is cheaper than a plate rack. But the firmness is not as good as the plate frame. However, injection frames are mostly used for glasses for the elderly and children because of their lightweight and resistance to allergies. The injection frame is made of laminated plastic. It is made by pasting a thin layer of plastic of one color on another thicker layer of plastic. Thick materials are mostly transparent pigments. It is also made of three or more layers of plastic.
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.
How to choose blue light blocking glasses?
Nowadays, electronic products such as mobile phones and computers have become indispensable tools in our lives. While these high-tech products bring us convenience and fun, they also bring symptoms such as eye fatigue and myopia. Subsequently, blue light blocking glasses have also received everyone's attention. Anti-blue glasses are only suitable for people who use electronic products for a long time, not for people who are visually fatigued. Exposure to such unnaturally strong blue light for a long time every day, especially for teenagers and children, needs to pay more attention to the prevention of blue light. So, how to choose suitable blue light blocking glasses for kids?
Anti-blue light is necessary, but not all blue light can be filtered out, because blue light will interfere with the body's melatonin secretion after being over-filtered, thereby affecting sleep. Therefore, when choosing blue light blocking glasses, you should choose appropriately according to your own eyes.
For how to choose anti-blue glasses, consumers can distinguish from the color of the lenses. Generally speaking, a lens with a yellow color will have the effect of blocking blue light. But too dark lenses will affect the contrast sensitivity. Therefore, it is recommended that consumers choose moderately. In addition, consumers should also pay attention to whether the glasses products (lenses, frames) have conformity marks, etc. It is best to choose professional and well-known glasses shops to match glasses.
Adjustment of the upper and lower position of the nose pad
The nose pad can be pulled up and down with the pliers of the nose pad to achieve the purpose. You can use needle-nose pliers to clamp on the nose pad and apply torque in a certain direction to change the upper and lower position of the nose pad. When applying the torque, the nose pad can be pressed down or pulled up by the pliers to change the position of the deformation of the bracket, to prevent repeated deformation and fracture near the solder joint.
The Pros of Progressive Lenses
In this section, we will show you the benefits of progressive lenses.
One of the major advantages of progressive lenses is that the design of progressive lenses blends the prescription. There is no image jump or visible line on the lens. This enhances your comfort with your lenses and can be safer when performing tasks such as driving.
With progressive lenses, you don’t have to switch other glasses frequently. Progressive lenses correct distance, intermediate, and reading vision within one lens. So, it can bring you great convenience.
Features of progressive lenses
With the proper head position, the wearer can have a clear and continuous vision at all distances from the distal point to myopia through the progressive lens. When the eye moves from one area of vision to another, the eye adjustment process is natural and smooth, without any visual fluctuations. With natural vision and better adaptability, it is in line with physiological optics. The mid and near vision area is relatively small: Some wearers may feel that the gradient area of the progressive lens is smaller, which limits the width of the saccadic eye and requires increased head movement in order to achieve the same reading range. At medium and short distances, the wearer needs to coordinate certain head movements.
