Choose clear glasses with the right size for kids.
The choice of children's glasses should be based on the size of the child's face and the height of the nose. Most of the bridge of your child's nose is low, so you can choose an adjustable eyewear frame with a separate nose pad to avoid touching your eyelashes or wearing the glasses uncomfortably. If the frame is too small, the field of view will become smaller. The frame is too large, they are not stable, and the weight will increase. So children with glasses frame should be moderate in size.
The birth of progressive lenses
In 1907, British optometrist Owen Aves first proposed the concept of progressive lenses and got the first patent of progressive lenses. In 1910, Henry Orford Gowlland designed and made a similar lens in Canada, but technical limitations prevented it from succeeding. In 1959, Bernard Maitenaz, a French optical and mechanical engineer, developed the first progressive lens, which was successfully put into the commercial market for the first time and became a milestone in the history of world optometry. With the development of science and technology, the design of progressive lenses has been greatly developed.
The frame of prescription glasses
At present, the more common materials for frames are non-metal and metal. Non-metals mainly include TR90, sheet material, etc., and metals include alloys, titanium, and so on. TR90 and sheet material are actually plastics, but they are firm and are not easy be deformed at room temperature. Also, they have good formability so that they can be made in many fashionable styles. The general alloy material has good firmness and flexibility, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to fade. The pure titanium frame is corrosion-resistant and very strong. It is about 40% lighter than the general alloy frame. It must be welded and electroplated in an oxygen-free state, which requires high equipment and technology. Relatively speaking, the price of TR90 and alloys will be lower, and pure titanium will be more expensive. You can choose according to your budget.
What Are Polycarbonate Glasses?
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 glasses have become standard for safety glasses, sports goggles and children’s eyewear.
Polycarbonate glasses are thinner and lighter than regular plastic lenses. They also provide 100 percent UV protection and are up to 10 times more impact-resistance than plastic or glasses lenses.
In addition, Polycarbonate lens provides clearer and more comfortable vision if 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.
After learning some basic information about polycarbonate glasses, we will show you the advantages and disadvantages of polycarbonate lens.
Because of its unique lightness, and its unique materials, the American space agency, NASA, took a fancy to it and designated it as space special glasses. Since 2000, it has accompanied astronauts on 35 space missions. With no frames, screws, or hinges, this is the new look that will forever be memorized as the Rimless Titan Minimal Art（TMA） glasses, which weigh 1.8 grams. In order to reduce weight and improve comfort, the EmPadsystem patent was invented, which improved the eyeglass beam and nose pad, further effectively reducing the pressure of eyeglasses on the nose bridge and making the eyeglass nose pad easier to clean.
Wear glasses normally after being fitted with glasses
If you have myopia and have been diagnosed as true myopia at the same time, and the degree is above 0 degrees, you should wear suitable myopia glasses for correction. Once equipped with glasses, you should wear them except for washing your face and sleeping, because myopia patients are in a state of emmetropia after wearing suitable glasses, and the natural relationship between adjustment and convergence is restored. Wearing glasses is not only to improve eyesight, but also to read and work within an appropriate distance, so that there is a normal coordination relationship between the adjustment of the eyes and the convergence function, and to avoid eye fatigue.
Glasses for heart-shaped faces
This type of face has a wide forehead, broad cheekbones, and a pointed chin. It is called a heart-shaped face. The upper part of the heart-shaped face is relatively wide and flat, and the lower part of the line is uniform and smooth. The facial line, the proportion is very soft, giving a person an intimate intuitive feeling. Wearing longer or rimless glasses for this face shape will make you look cute.
