Blue light blocking glasses lenses and common glasses lenses have different colors.

As the name indicates, blue light is to prevent the reflection of blue light. Remove blue light, and all the red, yellow, blue, and green in visible light is yellow.
How to Choose Reading Glasses?
Find the right power. When choosing reading glasses, finding the right power would be the most important thing. All reading glasses will have signs or stickers indicating their power. In most cases, they will range from +1 to +4 diopter, in increments of +0.25. So, when choosing reading glasses, try the lowest power first.
Test-drive the glasses. If you have brought reading material with you, try reading it at a comfortable length. If you hold the material too far out to be able to read it, you should increase the power. Keep testing the differences powers until can read clearly at the distance that’s more comfortable for you.

The origin of modern eyeglasses
The origins of modern glasses can be traced back more than 1,000 years. In the Middle Ages, the reading stones used by monks were glass spheres, sometimes filled with water and placed on objects to magnify them.Glassblowers in Italy created reading stones, similar to modern hand-held magnifying glasses. The reading stone can be placed on the wearer's nose or in front of the face. Later, Spanish craftsmen built the first cobra-framed temple in the 17th century. They tie ribbons or strings to the frames and tie them around the user's ear.
In the 18th century, Edward Scarlett created the first wearable glasses, providing more comfort for eyewear wearers. These early glasses had glass lenses embedded in heavy frames made of wood, lead, or copper. Natural materials of leather, bone, and horn were later used to make the frames. In the early seventeenth century, lighter steel frames were invented. As eyewear continued to evolve and prescription accuracy improved, the trend for eyewear to become more fashionable began. In the 18th century, bifocal lenses appeared, making it possible to correct upper myopia and lower presbyopia. Later glasses were designed to be fixed by a ribbon or by applying pressure to the bridge of the nose. In the 1980s, plastic lenses were introduced, providing a more durable alternative to glass lenses. Ultimately, the glasses used today are the result of centuries of technological and intellectual advances.
How to adapt to progressive lenses?
People who are prone to motion sickness or have inner ear diseases may suffer dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms due to their inability to tolerate the slight deformation of the visual objects, so they need to pay more attention when wearing them. For people who have not worn reading glasses before, it is not recommended to wear graded multi-focus glasses directly because their eyes will not be able to adapt quickly.
Polygonal glasses frame is derived from square glasses frame. Some of the frames belong to mechanical cutting, and the lens has an exquisite diamond design, very popular with consumers. The irregular frame makes the glasses more angular and makes the frames less monotonous. It's more stylish and trendy. Gold is more popular, but the price is not high.
What Are Trivex Lenses?
What is Trivex? Trivex lenses were first produced in 2001. Trivex lenses come with several features such as light, impact-resistance, and high-performance strength. Recently, the use of Trivex as ophthalmic lens material has grown in popularity. Lenses made from Trivex material fulfill the same safety standards as those made from polycarbonate.
In addition, because of Trivex’s manufacturing process, plastic lenses sporting Trivex material do not distort vision as much. Trivex lenses offer 100 percent protection from UAV and UAB rays, sharper central vision, and sharper peripheral vision. Trivex was developed for military applications, so it is good for outdoor use. Other benefits include resistance to chemicals and better light refraction.
So, in the following section, we will show you the advantages and disadvantages of the Trivex lenses.
