These mesmerizing oversized glasses provide facial protection for the eyes and are popular. From the fashion of the 70s to the Hollywood glamour of the early 2000s, it makes you feel confident and protected.
Evolution of hard coating technology
The first generation of the use of hard coating technology began in the early 1970s, the quartz material is deposited on the surface of a resin lens under vacuum conditions, form a very hard anti-wear film. However, due to the mismatch between the thermal expansion coefficient and the film base material, it is easy to delaminate and crack the film. Instead, it forms the mottle on the surface of the lens, and the effect is not optimal.
The second generation of hard coating technology is the use of the 1980s. The surface of the resin sheet is coated with a material with high hardness and not easy to be brittle and cracked by an immersion process. At this time, anti-reflection coating lenses had appeared and gained the recognition of consumers, but the mismatch between adding hard coating and anti-reflection coating still caused serious lens wear.
The third generation of hard coating technology was developed in the 1990s, mainly in order to solve the problem of wear resistance after coating resin lenses with an anti-reflection film. The hardened material evolved into a polymer organic matrix material.
Fourth-generation coating technology is dominated by silicon atoms, in which the hardened solution contains both organic substrates. It contains inorganic ultrafine particles, including silicon elements, which make the hard coating not only tough but also hard.
What Is Plastic Lens?
In the above part, we have introduced what polycarbonate lenses are. In this section, we will show you what the plastic lens is.
The plastic lens was first introduced in 1947. Since then, plastic has become a popular and widely used material for making eyeglasses lenses. Since the introduction and use of plastic lenses, it has sealed its mark as the most preferred choice in the optical industry.
Plastic lenses are light. With this feature, plastic lenses are popular because they will not be heavy inside the glasses frame and permit for an easy fit in any type of glasses frame. In addition, plastic glasses are cheap and easy to obtain in desired amounts. So, they are affordable for most people. Plastic lenses are very durable. So, they do not shatter easily on impact which makes it a great choice for individuals who are active or tend to drop their glasses often.
However, compared with other lens materials, plastic lenses are usually thick due to their low index of refraction. The soft feature of plastic glasses makes them susceptible to scratching from a sharp object and why scratch-resistant coating is applied to form an additional protective layer. Plastic lenses do not provide ultraviolet protection.
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.
Bertoni polarized glasses
Bertoni polarized night vision driving glasses are made of strong, flexible, durable, and ultralight polycarbonate. Yellow polarization increases contrast, improves visual acuity, and filters out blue light. They are great for drivers, cyclists, and winter sports enthusiasts. The driving glasses with polarized yellow lenses block glare from headlights, reduce night driving glare, improve night vision, and improve color clarity and visual clarity. They are ideal for driving in low-light conditions. Most sports sunglasses glasses frames and goggles are made of polycarbonate because of their strong, thermoplastic, lightweight, and impact resistance features.
Advantages of Plastic Frames
Plastic is usually called a plate, having no skin allergies. The price is relatively cheap. Colors and styles are diverse. The color is rich, rich in shape. The injection molding material is higher dimensional stability of the whole batch, fast processing speed, and low comprehensive cost. Material prices are lower. It has a certain flexibility. TR material has high transparency. With high flexibility, it can meet the needs of different sizes. Plate material surface hardness is high. They need no surface treatment, having noble texture, wear-resisting. Suitable comfort change can be made according to different face sizes. It is the most mature material used in eyewear products of international apparel brands.
Why do glasses with the same prescription feel different?
The clarity of the lens changes. In addition to the case of the frame, the lens will be yellow or slightly scratched during use due to long-term absorption of ultraviolet rays, oily contact, dry rubbing by the user, etc., and the clarity of the lens will be affected. However, the clarity of newly equipped glasses tends to be higher, and the comparison between the two will cause discomfort. It is recommended that the new glasses can be used early the next morning. After a night's rest, the eyes will be easier to adapt to the new glasses. Under normal circumstances, new glasses generally require an adaptation period of about a week. After a few days of continuous wearing, the uncomfortable symptoms will disappear.
