The Pros of Progressive Lenses
In this section, we will show you the benefits of progressive lenses.
One of the major advantages of progressive lenses is that the design of progressive lenses blends the prescription. There is no image jump or visible line on the lens. This enhances your comfort with your lenses and can be safer when performing tasks such as driving.
With progressive lenses, you don’t have to switch other glasses frequently. Progressive lenses correct distance, intermediate, and reading vision within one lens. So, it can bring you great convenience.
Design principle of aspheric lens
Early optical lenses use spherical lenses. Because the glasses were small round frames, the problem of lens edge aberration was not paid attention to. It wasn't until large frames became popular that the problem became apparent. For the spherical lenses, aberration cannot be corrected with the combined lens. Only a few variables of the lens can be found to reduce aberration and improve clarity. Aspheric lenses are designed to reduce the aberration of optical correction lenses and to make lenses flatter and reduce lens magnification. We can get clearer, thinner, lighter-quality lenses. Thus, aspheric lenses are used to reduce aberration and astigmatism to a minimum, close to the natural vision of the naked eye. The spherical aberration can be reduced by changing the curvature of the edge. The refraction in the central region is high and decreases evenly toward the edges.
Which is better, Essilor lens or Zeiss lens?
1. Different high-density resin substrates. Essilor Diamond Crystal series 1.74 lenses use resin with a density of 1.46 as raw materials. The lens itself has higher hardness. Combined with Diamond Crystal series film layers, the lifespan of the lens is better improved. The outstanding abrasion resistance is obvious.
2. Different technical support. The greater the density of the lens, the harder the substrate. However, the larger the density of the lens under the same volume is heavier. Therefore, Zeiss has the best trade-off between density and component and selects high density on the basis of high refractive index and frivolity substrates.
3. Different Features. The anti-fog molecules on the two surfaces of the lens are activated by an anti-fog activator. Therefore, the fog differentiates into a thin layer that is invisible to the eyes, instead of forming a fog. Each spray of activator can last about a week. Zeiss resin lens guarantees up to 99.4% of the lens light transmittance, and the naked eye can no longer feel whether the lens is worn or not.
What are TR90 glasses?
TR-90 (Plastic Titanium) is a kind of polymer material with memory. It is the most popular ultra-light material in the world at present. It has the characteristics of super toughness, collision resistance and abrasion resistance, low friction coefficient, and can effectively prevent the damage caused to the eyes and face due to the fracture and friction of the frame during the movement.
Is the prescription for glasses the same as for contact lenses?
A prescription for contact lenses is not the same as a prescription for regular glasses. The two types of glasses are quite different because glasses are located about 12mm from the eye, while contact lenses are located directly on the surface of the eye. If you want to wear both contact lenses and regular glasses, you'll need two different prescriptions. Contact lenses are worn in the eyes, and the frame is at a distance from the eye, although the distance is not large, definitely can affect certain degrees.
What is blue light?
Our daily lives are inseparable from mobile phones, computers, tablet computers, and other electronic products. Many people's eyesight is also going downhill due to long-term exposure to strong light electronic screens, and their eyes are more or less potentially adversely affected. It is found that many optical stores sell blue light filter glasses, which have the function of blocking 99.9% UV and scattered blue light, alleviating visual fatigue. They claim that these glasses can block short-wave blue light emitted by electronic products such as mobile phones and computers, and even prevent age-related macular degeneration so they are much sought after by consumers. The price of these so-called anti-blue-light glasses varies greatly, ranging from dozens of dollars to several thousand dollars. Do these blue light blocking glasses really have so many magical functions?
The natural light seen by the human eye is composed of a spectrum of different colors, including red light, orange light, yellow light, green light, blue light, indigo light, purple light, which gives people a visual feeling of white. Different wavelengths present different colors visually, and the shorter the wavelength, the higher the energy. At present, products with electronic screens such as computers and mobile phones use LEDs and other materials to emit light mainly in three colors of red, green, and blue, and blue light accounts for the main part. Blue light belongs to the range of visible light, belongs to short waves. And the wavelength is between 400 nanometers and 500 nanometers, which is close to ultraviolet and carries a large amount of energy. And this part from 400 nanometers to 450 nanometers is called high-energy short-wave blue light.
Why are eyeglass frames are so expensive?
Good frames and bad frames are very different just in how they feel. The bigger the brand company, the more money it invests in the design, research and development, production equipment, and equipment of the lens frame every year, so as to improve the wearing comfort and improve the combination and precision of the lens. Even if for the general assembly line, the processing process is also very complicated. The most expensive things to make by hand are labor and time.
