Why the glasses will become loose? It can be caused by various reasons. Most people wear and remove their glasses several times every day. The back and forth movements of the glasses’ arms will increase the possibility that they will become loose.

Why do nose pads turn green?
Because there are copper accessories in glasses. And the copper and sweat mix for a long time, so it will corrode and rust. The greenness is the mixture of copper salt (copper rust) produced by the copper element in the coating and inorganic salt in sweat and grease dust. The color of copper is green, so is the dirt. If you sweat a lot and the lens bracket is metal, the nasal bracket silica gel is easy to turn green. This is usually due to oxidation caused by the combination of nickel with the natural oils in the skin. Your nose is usually the oily part of your body. The oil in the nose mixes with sweat and then oxidizes the metal. Glass frames are usually made of a kind of copper called Monel. Monel is an easily corroded metal that does not react to many chemicals. It's skin-friendly. The only downside is that it turns green when it rusts.

How to know if lens is polarized?
Make use of LCD screens. Point the glasses horizontally at the LCD screen and then rotate them upward by 45 degrees clockwise. If it is a polarized lens, it will show a change in color deepening. If it does not change no matter how you rotate it, it is not a polarized lens. You can borrow another person's polarized lens or have previously worn a known true polarizer, and place it crossover with the new glasses you want to buy. At this time, you should see the object clearly from the crossover part with your eyes. Then cross the glasses vertically and horizontally, and at this point, the opposite object should not be visible from the intersection. If this condition is satisfied, it means that a true polarized lens is being tested.
What Is Polycarbonate Lens?
Polycarbonate was developed in the 1970s for aerospace applications and is currently used for the helmet visors of astronauts and for space shuttle windscreens. Polycarbonate lenses were introduced in the early 1980s in response to a demand for lightweight, impact-resistance lenses. Since then, polycarbonate has become standard for safety glasses, sports goggles, and children’s eyewear.
Polycarbonate glasses are thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses. They provide 100% UV protection and are up to 10 times more impact-resistance than plastic or glasses lenses. Polycarbonate glasses also offer clearer and more comfortable vision if an anti-reflective coating is applied to the lenses, which can eliminate distracting lens reflections that interfere with vision, particularly when driving at night or in other low-light conditions when glare sources are present.
However, polycarbonate lens is a naturally soft material, making it more subject to scratching without adequate protection with a scratching-resistant coating. Polycarbonate glasses have high dispersion due to its low Abbe value of 30, causing chromatic aberrations.
