Color process of Contact lenses
Pigment printing process
It refers to the direct printing of pigments or patterns on the inside of the lens and then drying, which is the main production process of poor-quality chromatic contact lenses. Usually, small factories and small workshops use this method. The lens is being phased out because the pigment can easily seep out from the surface during wearing, causing discoloration and staining, and irritation to the eyes, which is a big risk.
Pigment build-in process
To be specific, the lens made by sandwich technology is a three-layer structure, the front and rear are colorless transparent layers, and the middle is a colored layer. After the processing of sandwich technology, the color layer is wrapped in the middle of the front and rear transparent layer, so that the pigment will not contact the eyes, which will not cause irritation and injury to the eyes. The downside of this process, however, is that the lenses are slightly thicker than normal contact lenses and are less oxygen-permeable, so they are not suitable for long-term wear.
The pressed film manufacturing process
This is a relatively new method of a similar sandwich process, and the color (pattern) is also made between the front and rear layers of the lens. But the color (pattern) is used to fill in the film process. During lens curing, the pigment seeps into the material instead of sticking to the surface. It feels as if the lens is covered in color within a single layer. This reduces the middle layer and makes the lens thinner, which naturally makes it more comfortable and permeable to oxygen.
An oval face fits all frames.

The correct method for lens cleaning
Wet it with water first, and then add a little detergent or hand sanitizer to each lens. Dip your fingers to the back of the lens, and then scrub with your fingers. Be careful not to use too much force to prevent the lens from being worn out by grit.
The key here is to rinse. First of all, never use hot water, because hot water will cause the lens to expand due to heat, which will crack the film in the resin lens.
Finally, you should rinse with cold water, do not wipe with a cloth, because any glasses cloth or suede can not perfectly wipe the lens, even the more you wipe it, the more indistinct it gets. If there is hard dust in the cloth, it will scratch the lens.
What Is Bifocal Lens?
Changes in vision seem to be related to age. Presbyopia, a common eye condition that occurs in middle age, causes changes in your eye’s ability to focus. But this condition can be corrected by wearing bifocal glasses.
Bifocal lenses are divided into two parts to accommodate two different prescriptions in one lens. One area of the lens will have one prescription (usually distance) and a segment in the lower half will have the other (usually near vision).
The bifocal glasses were invented by Benjamin Franklin, who solved his own vision problem by taking the lens from his reading glasses and distance glasses and cutting them in half. Then remade the cut lenses into a single pair of bifocals and put the distance lens on top and the reading lens on the bottom.
How to Choose Glasses for Long Face?
Bold shapes and eyeglasses with decorative details are also a smart choice since they help draw attention to your eyes and can add width to your face. Be sure to avoid narrow or rectangular shapes, which can make your face appear longer.
Square glasses: if you have a long face, you can try square glasses whose sharper corners can help to balance out the length of your face and complement your narrow features. Choose frames that are slightly wider than your cheekbones to make your face appear broader.
Two-toned glasses: if you have a long face shape, the two-toned glasses would be a good choice. The color-top frames create an optical illusion that draws focus upward toward your eyes rather than to the length of your face.
How to Choose Reading Glasses?
In this section, we will show you some tips for choosing 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.
Choose big frames the first time. When choosing reading glasses, you can choose the big frames for the first time. You may need larger glasses frames or lenses to really get the sweet spot of where the prescription is.
And if you have never worn glasses for eye conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, it is likely you will be able to see well with non-prescription reading glasses. So, you can buy these non-prescription reading glasses.
