What Are the Advantages of Progressive Lenses?
We have shown what the progressive lenses are in the above part. Do you know what the advantages of progressive lenses are？.
1. Only need a pair of eyeglasses. As mentioned in the above section, with progressive lenses, you just need a pair of eyeglasses and there is no need for you to change different glasses constantly.
2. No unsightly bifocal line. Progressive lenses come with the multifocal lens without a multifocal line. And there is a smooth shift in lens strength, you don’t have to deal with any sudden changes in clarity.
3. More comfortable. Due to no visible line, you might feel more comfortable with a progressive lens.
How to test a blue-light lens?
Look at the lens. High-quality anti-blue glasses do not interfere with the line of sight, with high transmittance. The light transmittance is very high, and the visual clarity is higher, which does not affect the visual quality, quality of life, contrast sensitivity, and color discrimination.
Comfort of Glasses
The most important thing when shopping for glasses is comfort. When you choose, you must try it on to see if you feel any discomfort. Whether the glasses can be well put on the upper part of the bridge of the nose, and whether they are light enough and will not cause any burden on the opposite side. In addition, you must see if there is any feeling of dizziness.
How to choose the right glasses for myopia?
Nowadays, people are nearsighted, and they usually think of going with a pair of glasses. However, only from the media, we continue to see that there are substandard myopia glasses and frames in the report, so how should we choose when we buy glasses? How can I match a pair of suitable and high-quality glasses? Different glasses shops vary greatly from optics technology to the quality of lens frames, so different shops have different prices. Faced with a variety of glasses, how should we choose? Generally, we can look at these four standards. First, take a look at whether the eyewear company has obtained a production license for eyewear products. Second, see if the optometry equipment and testing instruments of the glasses companies have qualified marks. Third, see if the optometry and production staff are certified to work. Forth, look at whether the glasses have a conformity mark (certificate). The four certificates of eyewear companies are the prerequisite to ensure the quality of glasses.
Semi-rimless glasses are easier to clean and maintain
Semi-rimless glasses usually have only half of the glass frame. We tend to wipe our glasses in one direction, but we all know that the glasses are all wrapped up. So when some small particles appear on our glasses, these things can not be wiped out by the glasses cloth, and it is easy to scratch the lens. This is one of the drawbacks of full-frame glasses.
Evolution of hard coating technology
The first generation of the use of hard coating technology began in the early 1970s, the quartz material is deposited on the surface of a resin lens under vacuum conditions, form a very hard anti-wear film. However, due to the mismatch between the thermal expansion coefficient and the film base material, it is easy to delaminate and crack the film. Instead, it forms the mottle on the surface of the lens, and the effect is not optimal.
The second generation of hard coating technology is the use of the 1980s. The surface of the resin sheet is coated with a material with high hardness and not easy to be brittle and cracked by an immersion process. At this time, anti-reflection coating lenses had appeared and gained the recognition of consumers, but the mismatch between adding hard coating and anti-reflection coating still caused serious lens wear.
The third generation of hard coating technology was developed in the 1990s, mainly in order to solve the problem of wear resistance after coating resin lenses with an anti-reflection film. The hardened material evolved into a polymer organic matrix material.
Fourth-generation coating technology is dominated by silicon atoms, in which the hardened solution contains both organic substrates. It contains inorganic ultrafine particles, including silicon elements, which make the hard coating not only tough but also hard.
