What Are the Advantages of High-Index Lenses?
In this section, we will show you the advantages of high-index lenses.
- Thanks to the slim shape and narrow edges, high index lenses offer wearers the flexibility to choose from a wide array of fashion-forward frames. Their size means that they can be easily paired with sleek metal frames or incorporated into rimless eyewear for an attractive barely-there look.
- High index lenses are more comfortable for extended use because they are lighter than the traditional counterparts.
- High index lenses are available with many of the same options as traditional lenses. For example, they can be either single-vision or progressive.
- For users with strong prescriptions, high index lenses mean no bulky, bottle-glasses appearance. This can reduce the unwanted bug-eye look traditionally associated with very thick lenses.
However, there are some negative voices of high index lenses.
How to Choose Reading Glasses?
Find the right power. When choosing reading glasses, finding the right power would be the most important thing. All reading glasses will have signs or stickers indicating their power. In most cases, they will range from +1 to +4 diopter, in increments of +0.25. So, when choosing reading glasses, try the lowest power first.
Test-drive the glasses. If you have brought reading material with you, try reading it at a comfortable length. If you hold the material too far out to be able to read it, you should increase the power. Keep testing the differences powers until can read clearly at the distance that’s more comfortable for you.
The life of the color-changing lens
There is a reaction fatigue problem in both compound reaction and bond-breaking ring-opening reactions. Therefore, there is a shackle in the process of discoloration, which is the life of the discoloration lens. Generally speaking, high-quality color-changing lenses can maintain more than 90% color-changing effect after 2 years of use.
The benefits of bifocal glasses
People with myopia often need to wear bifocal glasses after the appearance of presbyopia. The upper and lower parts of the lens have different diopters. The upper part is used to see distant objects, and the lower part is used to read and do close work. In addition to presbyopia, some people who work long hours in close quarters need bifocals to reduce eye strain. Studies have shown that long-term nearsightedness is the main cause of myopia. According to the adjustment principle of the eyeball and the height of the patient diopter, a reasonable measure is to wear myopia glasses with full correction when seeing the blackboard in class. When reading and writing. they should take off glasses or wear low myopia glasses. But the practice of continuously removing and putting on or changing glasses is clearly unrealistic. Bifocal glasses will solve this problem.
Should I wear glasses all the time for myopia?
Whether it is false myopia or true myopia, as long as a pair of suitable myopia glasses are used to complement the missing refractive power of the lens, the image of the object can fall on the retina again, and the distant objects can be seen again. Adolescents usually use high eye intensity and often wear myopia glasses, so that the ciliary muscles do not need to be 'so tired' to adjust, which can avoid further aggravation of pseudomyopia. However, adolescents are still in the process of development, and the degree of true myopia will gradually increase with age. Therefore, as the degree of myopia develops, refraction should be performed at regular intervals, and appropriate glasses for myopia can be prepared to prevent false myopia.
For adults under 200 degrees, because the degree is relatively light, they can wear glasses when they are looking at the distance and not wear glasses when they are near, which has little effect on vision. But for adults with high myopia, because of the weak adjustment ability of the eyes, it is recommended to wear glasses regardless of near vision or distance vision.
In summary, wearing myopia glasses is to reduce eye fatigue and prevents the occurrence of false myopia. Wearing myopia glasses from time to time may aggravate the degree of myopia, and wearing them often does not cause a burden on the eyes. Therefore, for myopia glasses, wearing them frequently is the most correct way to wear them.
Which Reading Glasses Are Most Suitable for Me?
If you have never previously required prescription glasses to improve your vision such as nearsightedness or farsightedness or astigmatism, it is highly like that you can correct your vision with non-prescription reading glasses.
People around the age of 40 to will benefit from the low power reading glasses because of the progressive nature of presbyopia. In other words, you do not need prescription glasses to correct your vision.
However, if you are around the age of 60 or older, the strength of the reading glasses will increase. However, you do not need prescription glasses.
Glasses Size - Temple Length
The length of the temple is the length of the arm of your glasses. It's how far the arm is bent, all the way to where it intersects the frame. Although lengths may range from 120 to 150 mm, there are some common industry standards:135, 140, 145, and 150 mm. The temples are long enough to extend beyond your ears, so the ends can be changed to match the contours of your head behind your ears.
