What Is Polycarbonate Lens?
Polycarbonate was invented in the 1970s for aerospace applications and is currently used for the helmet visors of astronauts and for space shuttle windshields.
Polycarbonate lenses were introduced in the early 1980s in response to a demand for lightweight, impact-resistance lenses. Since then, polycarbonate glasses have become standard for safety glasses, sports goggles, and children’s eyewear.
Polycarbonate glasses come with a lot of features such as thin and light and they provide 100% percent UV protection and are up to 10 times more impact-resistance than plastic pr glasses lenses.
What is a titanium glasses frame?
Titanium is a metal that has long been used in aerospace, and even in cutting-edge defense because it is so strong and lightweight. Chemically stable, the material is widely used in artificial joints. One thing to emphasize, the titanium welding process is very demanding. The production cost of titanium and titanium alloy glasses is high, and the process has special high requirements in cutting, stamping, welding, and electroplating (for example, welding must be completed in a vacuum), so the price is relatively expensive.
The arm length is an important part of the size of the glasses.
Spectacle frames are standard optical products. Just like people's clothes and shoes, they all have their own size. Usually, specs for the size of the glasses are on the inside of the temple, on the bridge of the nose, or on the label. In general, the frames of the glasses are marked with the width of the frames, the width of the bridge of the nose, and the length of the arm. For example, the inner side of the temple is labeled: 52口 18-135, indicating the lens width of 52mm, the width of the nose bridge of 18mm, and the arm length is 135mm.
Disadvantages of polarized sunglasses
Polarized sunglasses have many benefits. However, in some cases, non-polarized lenses are a safer choice. On cloudy days, drivers find that non-polarized sunglasses are better than polarized sunglasses due to the lack of glare and extreme sunlight.
Driving with polarized lenses after snowing can be dangerous for drivers. As the glare of polarized sunglasses is blocked, ice or snow on the road will not be visible. In this case, the advantages of polarized sunglasses will become the disadvantages that may cause accidents.
In addition, when driving along a dark road with few street lights at night, wearing polarized lenses will make it harder to see the road conditions because they dim the available light better than non-polarized glasses. Of course, in low-light conditions, it is best to avoid wearing sunglasses completely while driving.
The most significant disadvantage of polarized sunglasses is that they do not perform well on digital screens and displays. They can cause the images and information on the LCD screen to blur or disappear at certain angles. Don’t wear polarized sunglasses to use these devices while driving.
What to consider when buying eyeglasses?
You should think about that if the popular trend complies with your need for lens optics, the material, and its price, the famous brand. Check that if the producers have a professional cognition. The current frame is made of titanium, tungsten plate, carbon, metal, plastic, tortoiseshell, plastic, etc. Titanium is one of the best and most stable materials. The frames of other materials are easy to be corroded, discolored, worn, and deformed. No matter what kind of material you choose, it must be stable, safe, reliable, skin-friendly, light, strong, and non-deformable.
