Single Vision Lens
Single vision is the most commonly used prescription lens. This lens type has a single field of view or a prescription ability of the entire lens and can be used to correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (supervision). Some people need glasses to keep their distance and read. Instead of having a pair of single-vision glasses for each pair of glasses, bifocal or progressive glasses may be a more convenient choice. Unlike single vision, bifocal and progressive lenses are multifocal lenses with multiple focal points, such as distance and near distance. People whose prescription for spectacles list the numbers in the 'ADD' section require bifocals, progressive glasses, or reading glasses because your glasses need to add ADDitional to the distance prescription to see close distances.
Can clear lenses be polarized?
At present, there are no clear polarized lenses. A polarized lens is a thin film vertically arranged with silicon crystal coating placed inside the lens, just like a shutter, which covers the parallel light and only allows the vertical light to pass through. In this way, the glare from all directions can be eliminated, so it is clear and comfortable to wear. Transparent polyamide, the material of nylon lens, is a new variety of polyamide. The material of the nylon lens is mainly transparent polyamide. Due to the effect of the light filter, only light from a specific direction is allowed to pass through the lens, which filters the dazzling light from the sun on the water, land, or snow very well. It can not only make the landscape soft, clear, and natural but protect the eyes to a certain extent.
Choose high-quality lenses.
As resin lens technology becomes more and more mature now, resin lens has gradually become popular, so the use of resin lens is the trend. Now resin coated lenses are very popular now. There are anti-reflection films and hard films (anti-wear films) anti-UV films. Anti-reflection film can improve the transmittance of light, making people see more clearly, at the same time, because it can reduce the reflection, the lens is more beautiful in appearance. Hard coating films can effectively protect the lens surface from wear and tear and can resist the damage of hard objects, to prolong the life of the lens. UV-resistant films block the harmful ultraviolet rays of sunlight. For example, the UV400 lens is good for engineers who work outdoors for a long time.

What Are the Advantages of High-Index Lenses?
In this section, we will show you the advantages of high-index lenses.
- Thanks to the slim shape and narrow edges, high index lenses offer wearers the flexibility to choose from a wide array of fashion-forward frames. Their size means that they can be easily paired with sleek metal frames or incorporated into rimless eyewear for an attractive barely-there look.
- High index lenses are more comfortable for extended use because they are lighter than the traditional counterparts.
- High index lenses are available with many of the same options as traditional lenses. For example, they can be either single-vision or progressive.
- For users with strong prescriptions, high index lenses mean no bulky, bottle-glasses appearance. This can reduce the unwanted bug-eye look traditionally associated with very thick lenses.
However, there are some negative voices of high index lenses.
What are blue light blocking glasses?
As we now spend more and more time on the screen, it is particularly important to pay attention to the effects of blue light. Approximately six out of ten adults will experience digital eye fatigue after using the device for more than 2 hours. Symptoms of digital eye fatigue include headaches, blurred vision, and dry eyes. The technology of blue light blocking glasses can effectively block part of the blue light damage to the eyes, reduce the visual fatigue caused by staring at the electronic screen for a long time and can also reduce the radiation and damage of ultraviolet rays to the eyes. However, the most important thing for eye protection is development. Good eye use habits, close your eyes regularly, and let your eyes rest.
Blue light blocking glasses are glasses that the manufacturer claims can filter out blue light. The lens of this kind of glasses has filter material or surface coating, which can block part of the blue light. People who believe that their eye and vision are damaged by blue light exposure may wear them to reduce blue light exposure.
Blue light is a short-wave blue light in the color spectrum visible to the human eye. Its wavelength is in the blue part of the electromagnetic spectrum, roughly 400–500 nanometers. Researchers believe that peak light damage occurs at approximately 440 nanometers. Computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and general lighting can all expose the eyes to blue light.
Choose clear glasses with the right materials for kids.
A critical point for children to choose frames is to think about the weight, to avoid wearing for a long time, or they will be uncomfortable, unstable, easy to slip. It is recommended to choose an ultra-light plate or TR90 lens frame, which has good chemical properties, good thermal stability, with no deformation, good recovery, and no side effects, lightweight, and convenient material.
