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.

What kind of glasses are bifocals?
Bifocals are mainly used in presbyopia correction, providing presbyopic opticians with a clear vision for both near and far use in one pair of glasses. The bifocal lens can be divided into two separate areas, with the upper part of the lens providing clear distance vision and the lower part providing clear near vision. The two regions of the bifocal lens provide different refractive forces, and the difference between these two refractive forces is the reading proximal addition, which compensates for adjustment during presbyopic reading.
One of the first people credited with inventing glasses was an English friar in the 13th century, Roger Bacon. In his Opus Majus (c. 1266), he outlined the scientific principles of the use of corrective lenses. Some writers believed that monks or friars possessed secret knowledge about glasses, which they later disseminated around the world. Most famously, William Molyneux wrote in his Dioptrica Nova (1692). Unfortunately, there is no evidence that Bacon ever applied his theoretical knowledge of perspective (optics).

What symptoms does myopia have?
Myopia is a problem related to the eye's ability to focus on distant objects. The manifestation of myopia is that blurred vision at a long distance. But near-distance vision is good. Early myopia often has long-distance vision fluctuation and squinting when looking at distant objects. Because looking close need not or less use an adjustment, and set function is weakened correspondingly. Those with high myopic have poor far vision, often accompanied by poor night vision, floaters, and other symptoms. Changes in the fundus of the eye can occur to varying degrees. It can form irregular shape white atrophy spots and so on.
