Each type of store has its own characteristics.
Nowadays, the optical stores in the market can be roughly divided into professional optometry and optical matching stores, fast fashion stores, brand flagship stores, and stores in shopping malls. The benefits of fast fashion optical stores are fast commodity update frequency, and they follow the fashion trend, which can bring consumers quite more choices. The size of fast fashion optical stores is usually not large, so they will use an open showcase design. The color collocation should be able to catch the attention of consumers, to attract customers to make self-service selection and experience.
Why do glasses with the same prescription feel different?
The style of the frame has changed. The structure of the new glasses and the old glasses (half-frame, rimless, full-frame) may be different, and the angle of the glasses may also be different, which will cause visual differences and the symptoms of dizziness after wearing the new glasses. If you used to wear rimless glasses or half-rim glasses before and switch to full-frame glasses, you will feel that his field of view is limited and you will feel a little uncomfortable when you see the edge of the frame. If you wear full-frame glasses before, you will feel the edge of the lens when you change to half-rim glasses. It's too bright to adapt. There is another situation, changing from a frame with a nose pad to a frame without nose pads. Because the distance between the lens and the eye has changed, the position of the nose pad has also changed, which directly affects the relative position of the optical center and the pupil, as well as the distance from the back vertex of the lens to the cornea, which naturally affects the visual difference. In this case, you can fine-tune the nose pads, or after a short-term adaptation, you can generally return to normal.
Do night driving glasses really work?
Yellow lenses reduce the amount of light entering your eye, reducing visibility. These darker colors block more blue light than yellow lenses. But they block more light from entering the eye, reducing visibility even more in low-light conditions. In fact, even yellow lenses reduce overall visible light to some extent because they block some blue light. This can be a good thing during the day, but not at night, when maximum visibility is key. Night driving glasses come in a variety of yellow and amber colors. The darkest lenses filter out the harshest light, but they filter out the largest amount of light, making it difficult to see in dim or dark conditions. Some people who wear night driving glasses say they can see better with them on. However, vision tests have shown that night driving glasses do not improve night vision, nor do they help drivers see pedestrians any faster than they would without glasses.
The Disadvantages of Trivex Lenses
In this section, we will show you the disadvantages of Trivex lenses.
- Trivex lenses have less availability, especially compared with polycarbonate lenses.
- Trivex lenses cannot provide the same degree of thinness as high-index lenses.
- Trivex lenses are expensive than regular lens materials.
What Is Bifocal Lens?
Bifocal lenses are divided into two parts to accommodate two different prescriptions in one lens. One is for distance prescription and the other is for near vision prescription. Bifocal glasses are used to correct the presbyopia eye condition.
Bifocal lenses are with lines separating two different prescriptions. With bifocals, you don’t get the single-vision lens look with them as you do with progressive lenses. If you don’t need to see through two prescriptions, bifocal glasses are an excellent option. Bifocal glasses come with the following features:
- Two vision zone. (One for near vision and the other one for distance vision.)
- Has a distinct line separating the powers.
However, with bifocal glasses, you may have trouble reading computer screens and causing a greater risk for computer vision syndrome.
What Are Polycarbonate Lenses?
Polycarbonate lenses are made from a type of plastic that is famous for its durability. Polycarbonate lenses are perfect for those who are doing sports while wearing glasses. It is also used in children’s glasses since kids are much less careful with their glasses than adults.
Benefits of Progressive Lenses
The lens looks like a single vision lens, with no dividing line between degrees. Not only is it beautiful in appearance, but more importantly, it protects the privacy of the wearer's age (for the wearer of reading glasses). There is no need to worry about showing the secret of the wearer's age by wearing the glasses. Because the degree is gradual, the replacement of the adjustment effect is increased step by step according to the shortening of the close distance. There is no adjustment fluctuation, which is not easy to cause visual fatigue. Clear vision can be achieved at all distances in the visual scope.
