Do kids need blue light blocking glasses?
1. American Ophthalmological Association
The American Ophthalmological Association clearly stated that it does not recommend any special glasses. The organization stated that there is no evidence that blue light from electronic devices can cause damage to the eyes. The discomfort that many people experience after watching electronic screens for a long time is due to symptoms such as dry eyes and even blurred vision caused by digital visual fatigue. The symptoms of using electronic products are related to how we use digital devices, not the blue light emitted from digital devices. There is currently no clinical evidence that blue light causes damage to the eyes, and measures to prevent blue light may be more harmful than blue light itself. It is too early to take preventive measures against blue light and may have unintended consequences.
2. British Association of Optometrists
The association believes that there is a lack of high-quality evidence to support the use of blue shaded glasses to improve people's visual performance, sleep quality, relieve eye fatigue, or protect macular health. There is no research on the effect of anti-blue eyeglass lenses on the health of the macula.
3. Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology
If the blue light is excessive, that is, the human eye is exposed to high-frequency and high-energy blue light, it will damage the rod cells. However, the rich blue environment with intensive exposure and the normalized environment are two different concepts. Therefore, it is unscientific to equate blue light with retinal damage. Individualized blue light protection guidance and recommendations should be put forward under different conditions such as different ages, health conditions, and working environments.
Should I wear driving glasses at night?
In fact, it is not safe to use any colored lenses while driving. You might consider how much color plays in your average driving experience. Red, yellow, green, orange traffic signs, and other vital signs are designed to remind you to pay attention to safety signals and directions while driving. However, if you see everything turn yellow, you may miss a sign and end up making the wrong decision at the traffic light, or worse, an accident.
Another disadvantage is that they do not have a prescription. If you are looking for a pair of standard night driving glasses on the market, you will find that most of them are standard over-the-counter glasses. To have night-driving glasses that can correct vision, you must customize them in an optical shop, and the price is much higher. Under the hype of the night vision feature, you can expect the cost of prescription night driving glasses to be too high.

Method of wearing the contact lens
Wash your hands before putting on contact lenses, and be careful not to leave long nails, to avoid contamination of the lens by bacteria and nail scratches. Place the contact lens on the tip of your index finger, face-up, and pull your upper and lower eyelids apart with the middle fingers of both hands. Look straight ahead and place the lens gently into the eye (attached to the cornea). Remove the index finger and look down so that the lens is attached to the cornea, and slowly relax the eyelids with the middle fingers of both hands. Blink gently several times (or roll your eyes) to remove bubbles.
Clean Glasses Properly
If the glasses are dirty, don't just wipe them with other cloth. If you use some hard cloth to wipe, it is easy to cause scratches in the lens. Generally speaking, the following cleaning methods are all feasible.
1. Use neutral or alkaline cleaning agent. Remember, toothpaste cannot be used as a substitute for the cleaning agent for spectacle lenses. General optical shops also sell lens cleaners in small bottles, which are easy to carry.
2. Go to the optical shop for professional ultrasonic cleaning. General optical shops provide free cleaning services. The ultrasonic cleaning machine can fully clean every gap and groove of the glasses.
3. Rinse the lens with tap water. Hold the frame in one hand and the cleaner in the other hand. Rub it slowly against the lens, and then rinse it off with clean water. Then wipe it with a glasses cloth or let it dry naturally.
In addition to the glasses cannot be cleaned with alcohol, you should also pay attention to their placement for daily maintenance. Try to avoid putting it under high temperature, and avoid oily, smoke, etc. If you don't use them, put them in the glasses case.
Glasses are lenses used to correct vision or protect eyes. It is not only an eye protection product but also a cosmetic decoration. Nowadays, there are more and more varieties of glasses, and the classification is getting more and more detailed. In addition to myopia glasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses, it also includes driver protective glasses, computer protective glasses, leisure goggles, and sports goggles, which are suitable for special industries, special work, and leisure and entertainment. Moreover, the progress of the times promotes the maturity of people's consumer psychology. Consumers pay more attention to the diversification and individualization of products. The demand for glasses has risen from a single level of vision care to three-dimensional consumption spaces such as humanities and aesthetics. This will stimulate the research, development, and sales of new varieties and new styles of glasses, and bring new opportunities for the development of the glasses retail industry.
Myopia glasses mainly include frame glasses and contact lenses. With the increasing demand for glasses by people who love beauty, myopia glasses have begun to combine the beautiful nature of sunglasses, and many new products have come out. The addition of contact lenses can be regarded as a supplement in terms of myopia glasses. The popularity of contact lenses has a sufficient reason that it eliminates the trouble of frame glasses, does not affect the appearance, and the feeling of seeing objects is more three-dimensional.
