How to Choose Reading Glasses?
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.
What material is the lens coating used?
The anti-reflection film material of glass lenses is usually magnesium fluoride. Because the coating process of magnesium fluoride must be carried out at more than 200℃, otherwise it cannot be attached to the surface of the lens. The resin sheet is not used. Since the 1990s, with the development of vacuum coating technology, the combined effect of film and lens has been improved. At the same time, high purity metal oxide materials like titanium oxide and zirconia can be deposited on the surface of the resin sheet through the evaporation process to achieve a good anti-reflection effect.
What are NXT Lenses?
NXT lenses are made of Trivex materials. Trivex (Chinese name: Ethyl Carbamate Polymer) was invented by PPG in 2001.
Impact resistance is the main feature of the NXT lens. As a visual armor material originally used in the military field, Trivex has effective impact protection to the eye when it is most demanded. It is 10 times stronger than PC lenses in impact resistance and will last for life under normal use. It is the only explosion-proof safety lens on the market that can withstand external forces and turns.
Patented color injection technology :
Color representation is another important feature of NXT lenses. The biggest defect of the regular lens in dyeing is color aberration. The same color of the lens with different luminosity will produce different effects. The higher the refractive index, the serious the error. NXT lenses are a breakthrough in this respect. The patented color injection technology that infuses the color into the raw material gives the lens a natural color, ensuring that color aberrations are minimized and that they do not fade or change color over time or over long periods of use like other materials.
Abbe number and internal stress:
The Abbe number of NXT lenses made of Trivex is 43~45, which is close to CR39(58) and higher than PC lenses (29~32) and high folding lenses (32~41). At the same time, because the NXT lens is produced by the casting process, there is no stress in the finished lens, which further reduces the rainbow phenomenon, providing a guarantee for the clear visual effect and reducing eye fatigue.
The specific gravity of NXT lens is 1.11g/cm3, 16% lighter than CR39 (1.32g/cm3) and 10% lighter than PC tablet (1.22g/cm3). The Trivex 1.53NXT medium-fold lens is so light that it can float.
Learn the 9 Necessary Parts of Glasses
Rims: the rims lend form and character to your eyeglasses and they also provide function by holding the lenses in place.
End pieces: they are small parts on the frame that extend outward and connect the lenses to the temple.
Bridge: it is the center of the frame that rests on your nose and joins the two rims together.
Hinges: hinges sit between the end pieces and the temple, allowing you to close your glasses folding the temple inward.
Lenses: lenses are the essential parts of eyeglasses. They are clear pieces of glasses, plastic or other lens materials held in place by the rims. The lenses are crafted and shaped with your unique prescription to help you to see clearly.
Screws: they are the small metal fasteners near the hinges and they are used to connect the end pieces with the temples.
Nose pads: nose pads give your glasses a more comfortable and secure fit. They are the round plastic pieces under the bridge that sit on your nose.
Pad arms: pad arms are able to extend from the rims and hold the nose pads in place. They are adjustable to fit the natural shape of your face.
Temples: temples are the long arms on both sides of the frame that fit over your ears for a snug fit.
These are all the 9 essential parts of eyeglasses. Knowing the name of parts of glasses can help you to repair them once they are broken or crooked.
Other features of high-quality titanium frame glasses
They are clear, with shiny surfaces, no scratches, corrosion, and other problems of the temple. The regular manufacturer prints the article number, size, etc. on the glasses frame. Open and make the temples flat, to see if it is tilted at an angle between the glasses body and temples, and to see that if the frames have the same size if the parts of the frame are symmetrical, etc.
Can the TR90 frame be changed?
TR90 material was originally made in Italy. It is difficult to color the frame, and usually, the color is painted on the outside. It can float in saltwater. It is suggested that the lens should be a water first to prevent overheating of the lens. Then, at the end of the nose, hinge, or the temple, carefully fold it in until it is comfortable to wear. You can use a household hair dryer to blow heat first, which can play the role of softening. Note that the hairdryer should be moved when heating, and do not aim at only one place. TR-90 is the most popular ultra-light material in the world at present.
Why should you take care of your rimless glasses?
Rimless glasses are not supported by the outside of the lens frame but are supported directly by the temples of the glasses.Because rimless glasses only rely on both sides of the temples directly with the lens joint, with less protection of the lenses ring. It is easy to cause lens wear, screw loose, so special attention should be paid to maintenance.
