What is the cheapest way to buy prescription glasses?
In the previous article, we discussed “Are progressive lenses good for sunglasses?”. In this article, let’s talk about “What is the cheapest way to buy prescription glasses?”.
Optometry must be accurate.
Optometry is the main basis for glasses. The accuracy of optometry is directly related to the success rate of the glasses prepared. Optometry must be accurate first, and the difference between the upper and lower levels should not exceed 12.5 degrees of the prescription. Secondly, the astigmatism axis should be accurate, and the general axis difference should be limited to plus or minus l to 3 degrees. In addition, the interpupillary distance must be accurate, and the interpupillary distance must be equal to the optical center distance of the lens. If you do not pay attention to the above-mentioned checkpoints in optometry, the prepared spectacle lenses will have blurred vision, prolonged visual fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and even diplopia. Optometry is best to go to a professional eye hospital. For children’s optometry or to wear glasses for the first time, you must use mydriatic optometry to be accurate. You can also check if there is any problem with the fundus, and go to the hospital to get more accurate optometry.(https://www.koalaeye.com/collections/eyeglasses)
After the examination, you will bring your optometry sheet and go to the optician to match your glasses. Note that the optical shop has professional qualifications. The refractive index of the resin lens, such as 1.49, 1.56, 1.61, 1.67, and so on, mainly depends on the degree. If the degree is not high, 1.56 will do. In addition, the sophisticated store will also measure the nose height, nose width, the distance between the eyes and ears, and the forward angle of the frame, which are also indicators of whether the glasses are comfortable to wear. It is recommended to try them on after they are fitted, and the time to try on them should be longer, so as to determine whether the glasses are suitable.
The choice of frames is not only good-looking but also has a lot to do with whether the polished glasses can be worn correctly. Therefore, special attention should be paid to the selection of spectacle frames, and the pupil distance and the optical center of the spectacle lens should be placed in a suitable position. It should also match the shape of the face so that the paired glasses are not only beautiful but also comfortable to wear. If you don’t choose a frame according to this, but choose anyone according to the general rules, the pupils will not match the optical center of the glasses, and the deflection center of the glasses will appear, causing the prism effect, which is very harmful to the eyes. How do choose a frame? Glasses are worn on the face after all, and they have a decorative effect, so you still have to see if they fit your face shape. In addition, the weight should be light and the frame size should be appropriate. It is best to measure the interpupillary distance, otherwise, it is easy to cause squint and cross-sight. It is safer for children to choose a plate frame with resin lenses. There is a wide range of options for adults. Glass lenses have higher hardness and are not easy to wear, while resin lenses have lower hardness but lightweight, good clarity, and higher protection against ultraviolet rays. Although crystals are expensive, they have high ultraviolet and infrared transmittance.
New optician adapts.
Every time I wear new glasses, I always feel dizzy when I first put them on. Although the store always says this is normal, the glasses must be comfortable to wear, and there should be no obvious dizziness or visual distortion after wearing them. We can’t make our eyes fit the glasses, we must make the glasses fit our eyes.
