Advantages of aspheric lenses
In reality, aspheric lenses were originally born to improve the marginalized optical properties of spherical lenses. The aspheric lens with special coating treatment has perfect visual performance, with a clearer, more comfortable visual effect. You can hardly feel the presence of aspheric lenses when you put them on. So you can enjoy the ease brought by aspheric lenses. They are more natural and more realistic, having less visual distortion. The aspheric lens can be designed with a flatter base arc, which not only makes the appearance beautiful but reduces the peripheral magnification so that when others look at the eyes of the people who wear glasses, the size will not change much.
Large frame glasses
This year, glasses with large frames are popular, or glasses with wide edges are good-looking. The design inspiration of many series comes from the classic design. The rectangular frame shines brilliantly, but the angular line is softer. Many frames are made of synthetic fiber materials with excellent sculpture effect and wide application range, which has become mainstream.
The life of the color-changing lens
There is a reaction fatigue problem in both compound reaction and bond-breaking ring-opening reactions. Therefore, there is a shackle in the process of discoloration, which is the life of the discoloration lens. Generally speaking, high-quality color-changing lenses can maintain more than 90% color-changing effect after 2 years of use.
What Are Trivex Lenses?
What is Trivex? Trivex lenses were first produced in 2001. Trivex lenses come with several features such as light, impact-resistance, and high-performance strength. Recently, the use of Trivex as ophthalmic lens material has grown in popularity. Lenses made from Trivex material fulfill the same safety standards as those made from polycarbonate.
In addition, because of Trivex’s manufacturing process, plastic lenses sporting Trivex material do not distort vision as much. Trivex lenses offer 100 percent protection from UAV and UAB rays, sharper central vision, and sharper peripheral vision. Trivex was developed for military applications, so it is good for outdoor use. Other benefits include resistance to chemicals and better light refraction.
