At present, there are two prescriptions for reading glasses. One is to adjust the power of glasses with clear objects at close range, plus 1/3 of the power for adjustment. The other is to use low power that can see close objects clearly. The practice of many elderly people has proved that the latter one is better between two methods.
With a half-frame design, the retro round glasses can be paired with a very thin metal frame, indicating the literary and elegant temperament. The frame with only the upper part of the lenses circle covering the lens integrates lightness and steadiness, highlighting the sense of fashion, not only shows the wisdom of business elites but the natural and free affinity. They are not heavy and relatively firm. It is suitable for different kinds of occasions. It can be used for business occasions, leisure occasions, and parties. It is stylish and composed, reflecting the quality of life.
5 Unbreakable Eyeglasses Frames
In this section, we will list the most durable eyeglasses frames and we will introduce them one by one.
Titanium: One of the most durable eyeglasses frames is the titanium eyeglasses frames. It is lightweight, strong, and flexible. So, titanium eyeglasses frames have lots of fans in the eyeglasses market. In addition, pure titanium is hypoallergenic. But, due to these features, titanium eyeglasses frames are expensive than other frames.
Stainless steel: Stainless steel frames have some spring in them, which resists breakage. Stainless steel also resists corrosion, giving it a longer life. However, stainless steel eyeglasses frames may be hypoallergenic, depending on the alloys used.
Nylon: many people like athletes like nylon frames because they are flexible, lightweight and unbreakable - at least in the short run. However, nylon frames may become brittle over time, which is something to think about.
Kevlar: kevlar eyeglasses frames used in bulletproof vests can survive strong impacts, making them a good choice for contact sports and high-risk jobs. It does not have a lot of flex, limiting its applications.
Flexon: besides the above unbreakable eyeglasses frame, we will introduce another brand-name metal - Flexon. Flexon has a unique capability for springing back to its original shape after it gets twisted and they are called memory metal.
The design evolution of progressive lenses
Spherical and aspheric designs
The design of the front surface of the far-use area of the early progressive lens is similar to that of the ordinary spherical single vision lenses, so it is called a spherical progressive lens. Since 1974, the front surface of the far-use region of the lens is designed to be aspheric by designers, which not only reduces the peripheral aberration but makes the lens thinner, lighter, and less powerful.
Hard and soft design
For hard design, the channel is short, and the gradient is large. The near-use area position is high. The effective visual area of remote and near-use areas was larger. Peripheral astigmatism is relatively concentrated. Because surrounding astigmatism increases rapidly and the distribution is dense, the curve effect is more obvious. The gradient area is narrow. It is more difficult and takes longer for wearers to adapt.
Lenses with soft designs have slower gradients, longer gradients, and wider gradients. The angle of rotation of the eye from the far area to the near area is greater. It's easier to get used to. Compared with the hard design, the effective visual area of the far and near use areas is smaller, and the location of the near use area is lower.
Single, diverse, and individualized design
Initially, the progressive lenses used a single design, in which each basic curve was scaled equally and a luminosity combination was added within the range of its semi-finished lens blanks. The steepest base curve uses the same lens design as the flattest base curve. Lenses designers quickly realized that the overall performance of the lens could be improved by microcustomizing the lens design, leading to progressive lenses with multiple designs. This kind of design is called diverse design. By the mid-1990s, there was the emergence of individualized lens designs. In addition to using different gradients, these first individualized lens designs used steeper baseline curves with a slightly larger approach area to compensate for increased magnification and reduced field of view.
Symmetrical and asymmetric design
There is no difference between the left and right eyes in the symmetrical design of progressive lenses. As the eyes turn inward when they see near objects, the gradual gradient area gradually tilts to the nasal side from top to bottom, so the left/right progressive lenses should be rotated clockwise/counterclockwise respectively during processing. An asymptotic lens with left and right eye divisions is called an asymmetric design. The gradient is gradually and moderately inclined to the nasal side from top to bottom. The refractive force, astigmatism, and vertical prism of the two sides of the left and right gradient of the asymmetric design lenses are basically similar. At the same time, considering the characteristics of eye movement parameters in binocular vision, the peripheral aberrations of the corresponding positions of the left and right lenses were appropriately balanced to improve the visual effect of the wearer.
Feirdio blue light goggles
It can reduce the visual fatigue and discomfort caused by surfing the Internet for a long time, playing games, and working under fluorescent lights, and has the effect of protecting and reducing glare. The low color distortion lenses are optimized to provide the perfect balance for blue light prevention and visual quality. They have blue light prevention, glare reduction, UV blocking, screen flicker prevention, electromagnetic ray blocking lens. The frames of these blue light glasses are made of TR90 material. They're twice as durable as plastic glasses. These blue-blocking glasses are made of reinforced metal hinges to ensure durability and avoid cracking.
Choose polarizer for fishing
It is best to choose a polarized lens for fishing to filter out the reflections on the water surface. If it is myopia, it is best to choose polarized sunglasses with myopia function according to your own eye conditions. Generally, shops in the glasses city can customize such glasses. There are also special fishing glasses that can eliminate the scaly light on the water surface so that the angler can see the fish hooked.
How to Get Used to Progressive Lenses?
It is common that your vision may change when you are over age 40. You can find it is happening when have to hold your favorite book, the daily newspaper, or a restaurant menu farther away just to read it. This is an eye condition called presbyopia. It is normal and almost all of us get it as we reach middle age.
This eye condition often can be corrected by progressive lenses which allow you to see objects from far to near clearly. With progressive lenses, you do not have to switch your glasses to see far or near objects frequently.
However, since progressive glasses have three different prescriptions in one lens, it may be difficult for some people to adapt to the new ones. So, in this post, we will show you how to get used to progressive lenses.
