The origin of modern eyeglasses
The origins of modern glasses can be traced back more than 1,000 years. In the Middle Ages, the reading stones used by monks were glass spheres, sometimes filled with water and placed on objects to magnify them.Glassblowers in Italy created reading stones, similar to modern hand-held magnifying glasses. The reading stone can be placed on the wearer's nose or in front of the face. Later, Spanish craftsmen built the first cobra-framed temple in the 17th century. They tie ribbons or strings to the frames and tie them around the user's ear.
In the 18th century, Edward Scarlett created the first wearable glasses, providing more comfort for eyewear wearers. These early glasses had glass lenses embedded in heavy frames made of wood, lead, or copper. Natural materials of leather, bone, and horn were later used to make the frames. In the early seventeenth century, lighter steel frames were invented. As eyewear continued to evolve and prescription accuracy improved, the trend for eyewear to become more fashionable began. In the 18th century, bifocal lenses appeared, making it possible to correct upper myopia and lower presbyopia. Later glasses were designed to be fixed by a ribbon or by applying pressure to the bridge of the nose. In the 1980s, plastic lenses were introduced, providing a more durable alternative to glass lenses. Ultimately, the glasses used today are the result of centuries of technological and intellectual advances.
Are blue light glasses good for driving at night?
Are blue light glasses helpful when driving at night? The answer is not necessarily. Anti-reflective coating on glasses is beneficial. But blue light blocking won't have any effect on your driving at night. If your glasses have an anti-reflective coating, then they might be helpful for night driving. Otherwise, they won't have any impact.

What difference do mono-focal glasses and multi-focal glasses have?
A mono-focal lens is a lens with one focal point. Usually, the myopic far-sighted presbyopia that we see belongs to mono-focal glasses. There is only one diopter on one lens, and this is the single focal point. Multi-focal glasses are lenses that have multiple focal points, that is, multiple diopters. Both mono-focal glasses and multi-focal glasses are visual correction tools, but mono-focal glasses can meet basic vision needs, like fatigue relief, control of depth of diopters, and focus on different distances such as the need to see far and near.But because there are many different diopters on a multi-focal glasses lens, so the elderly can not only see far after wearing. When they see close distance, they do not need to take off glasses or wear reading glasses. Wearing multi-focal glasses is not easy to fatigue.
The function of eyeglasses cloth
Under a powerful microscope, the fibers of the cloth are more closely arranged than those of ordinary cloth, and the material itself is softer than ordinary cloth. That's because eyeglasses under the eye are almost always coated, with each standard lens having seven layers of different functions on the front and back surfaces, to extend lens life. It can thoroughly remove the stubborn stains left on the lens to make the picture clear. It can clean all kinds of glass, resin, and other materials of glasses, glass mirrors, and other mirror surfaces, remove stains, and grease absorption.
What Are Bifocals?
There are several kinds of lenses available in the market. Now, there is a kind of lenses by stacking two different kinds of lenses together and they are called a bifocal lens. Bifocal lenses are lenses with lines separating two different prescriptions. There is a presence of a distance lens at the top and the lower part has a lens that can be used to view the objects placed nearby.
Bifocal lenses are designed for people who have presbyopia, a condition in which the person can’t see the nearby placed objects. Presbyopia is an age-related condition, often occurred when people are over 40 and people often have blurred vision.
At the same time, there are different types of bifocal lenses present and they provide the same user which is the lower part of the lens is used to view the nearby objects or to do work related to reading and writing while the upper part of the lens is used to view the objects placed at a faraway distance or to do an activity like driving.
So, in the following section, we will show you the different types of bifocal lenses.
TR90 spectacle frame
TR90 is a composite super-elastic resin material first invented by Koreans and used in the manufacture of glasses. Its characteristics are lightweight, excellent flexibility, and slightly lighter than pure titanium. After this material is being made into a finished product, it is non-adjustable. The application is basically injection molding. Koreans are the first to apply to glasses production, which has been popular for a few years, and then popular in the Japanese market. Now it is basically mass-produced in China. The high-end high-quality TR90 spectacle frames are produced in Shenzhen, and the low-end low-quality ones are in Wenzhou because they are much cheaper.
