Single Vision vs Progressive: What Are Their Differences
In this part, we will show you some differences between single vision and progressive lenses. They differ in several factors, so here we will compare them one by one.
Progressive lenses generally have their reading zones just in the lower half of the lenses, while single vision glasses have the reading power all over the lens. So if you are working on something above your head and you need to see some small details, the progressive lenses will not work. And you can not see through the reading zone in progressive you need to switch to single vision reading glasses.
Single vision glasses are cheap than progressive lenses. Compared to progressive glasses, single vision glasses hold way fewer distortions in the periphery. So, there is no need to customize the lens design to the max. In addition, single vision glasses are often available in the optical store while the progressive often needs to be produced for you. In other words, the delivery time of single vision lenses will be shorter for you.
You can use your progressive glasses optimally just in an upright posture. As soon as you lay down on your couch, this will lead to blurry vision. The reason is your changed position which forces you to look lower through the lenses on the screen. However, with single vision glasses, you can change to an upright position and it would not be a problem anymore. You can position yourself on your couch as comfortably as you want and you can still see clearly with your single vision distance glasses.
Men's clear glasses are a fashion item.
A clear glasses frame is not only for a schoolgirl. Clear and transparent design more feel cool and refreshing in scorching summer. At the same time, it will not cover the facial features too much, making the face more delicate and clean. Small pure and fresh picture frames tie in some of the clothes of literature and art naturally. Therefore, the scope of use of clear glasses is very limited, only suitable for fashionable men.
Drivers can wear night-vision goggles
Night-vision goggles can prevent headlights from blinding, add color saturation, and make the field of vision clearer. The normal night vision glasses are golden yellow in color and have a metal coating on the surface. This is the use of diamond high perspective reflection film technology, in the lens to add color and film layer, in order to maximize the brightness of the object being seen. It is to compensate for the light for driving, which makes light pass through your eye. It can increase the three-dimensional sense of objects, making the line of sight more clear, to avoid confusion caused by blinding headlights.
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.
The advantages of metal frames
Its advantage is that the lens is fixed firmly, not easy to fall off. But the weight of the glasses increased slightly compared to the other frames. Full-frame glasses give people a sense of calm. The frame can cover the thickness of the lens very well, suitable for people with high degrees.
With the improvement of people's sports concept and sports protection concept, sports goggles are also widely welcomed. Safety glasses are worn during sports must have four major functions, safety (PC lenses), protection (TR-90 frame, soft and flexible), comfortable (non-slip nose pads and foot covers), and beauty (match sports and leisure clothing).
Sports goggles with shatter-resistant plastic lenses and side shields can prevent balls or sand from hitting the eyes. It can be fixed on the head without worrying about falling off during intense movements. The unique design of the rim of the frame makes the glasses very close to the human face and has a proper external isolation effect so that the human eye is not easy to be attacked by bacteria. The special lens has the functions of anti-fog, anti-shock, and ultraviolet rays, which is very suitable for outdoor activities.
