What Should You Do If Your Glasses Are Broken?
Professional eyewear repair shops have professional repair tools. It's relatively easy to fix the bent frame by yourself. Still, there are reasons to get a professional to fix them. Your local eyewear repair shop can quickly reshape metal and plastic frames and make sure they fit. Many professional optical shops will make small adjustments free of charge. The frame is completely broken and requires special tools and skills to fix. Frames are too fragile to repair at home, and trying to do so could cause even more damage to your frames. The lenses are damaged and you may need to replace them. Make sure your prescriptions are up to date. If your prescription is not up to date, you need to schedule an eye exam before changing your lenses.
Choose rectangular glasses based on the shape of your face.
If you belong to the oval face, do not choose the too large or angular glasses frame. And do not choose long or square ones. It will be easy to elongate the face and affect the overall appearance. The shape of a round face is the opposite of a square face, so the buying principle of the glasses is basically the opposite of a square face. You need a more angular one to improve the shape of the face, but you need a square face (elongate) principle, that is, use a lower height, higher temple position of the frame.
How Do Adjustable Glasses Work?
Adjustable glasses are featured with the fluid-filled lens technology that lets you adjust the power of the lens based on the correction level you need. You can twist the dial until you can see clearly. So, adjustable glasses are also called dial vision glasses.
Each of the lenses on adjustable glasses has a membrane that moves outward or inward based on how much fluid the lens contains. The liquid comes from a small syringe connected to each arm of the glasses. You move the dial to pump fluid in or out of the lens. As fluid enters the lens, the lens’s power increases. This can correct farsightedness. Pumping the fluid out can correct nearsightedness.
The principle of adjustable glasses is the same as vision ability. You change the physical shape of the lens just as the physical shape of the eyeball so as to correct your vision.
The safety role of glasses
Labor protection glasses can help professionals to prevent accidental injuries while working. The main role is to protect the eyes and face from ultraviolet, infrared, and microwave electromagnetic radiation, dust, metal and sand debris, and chemical solution sputtering damage. Many young people like to play computer games, so the eyes are easy for to occur myopia, but radiation glasses can reduce radiation. Chemical solution protection glasses are mainly used to protect eyes from chemical damage caused by irritating or corrosive solutions.
Why should you clean the eyeglass case?
Although the eyeglasses case is used less, it can not be separated from the glasses. If it is not cleaned for a long time, it will affect appearance and carry a lot of bacteria.
Your glasses are not symmetrical.
If one side of the frame looks higher than the other, you need to adjust the arm. If the right side is higher than the left, gently bend the left arm at the hinge or where the arm bends behind the ear. If the left side is higher than the right, gently bend the right arm at the hinge or where the arm bends behind the ear. Adjusting the frames a little at a time may damage your glasses. Place your arms in warm water to make them easier to adjust. Use only warm water from the tap. Don't use boiled water! Because it affects the coating on the lens. If one adjustment is not in place, it can be adjusted several times, and the above methods can be comprehensively used. If the adjustment is really bad, then you have to go to the optical shop to ask the staff to adjust.
The frame of prescription glasses
At present, the more common materials for frames are non-metal and metal. Non-metals mainly include TR90, sheet material, etc., and metals include alloys, titanium, and so on. TR90 and sheet material are actually plastics, but they are firm and are not easy be deformed at room temperature. Also, they have good formability so that they can be made in many fashionable styles. The general alloy material has good firmness and flexibility, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to fade. The pure titanium frame is corrosion-resistant and very strong. It is about 40% lighter than the general alloy frame. It must be welded and electroplated in an oxygen-free state, which requires high equipment and technology. Relatively speaking, the price of TR90 and alloys will be lower, and pure titanium will be more expensive. You can choose according to your budget.
