The Advantages of Polycarbonate Glasses
In fact, polycarbonate glasses come with several benefits and this section will show some of them.
First, polycarbonate glasses are safe and are virtually unbreakable. A study found that polycarbonate glasses were more impact-resistance than glasses or other types of plastic lenses.
Second, polycarbonate glasses are thinner than other types of lenses. This feature makes them ideal for people who have strong prescriptions. Lighter and thinner eyeglasses are less likely to slip off your nose and are more comfortable for everyday wear.
Third, extended exposure to UV radiation from the sun can cause damage to your eyes and lead to some eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration. Of course, polycarbonate glasses can block out harmful UV rays from the sun and provide good protection for your eyes.
However, there are some negative voices of polycarbonate lenses.
Is blue light blocking worth it?
There are two main problems with anti-blue glasses currently on the market. One is that the place to be prevented is not preventable, and the other is that people have color casts due to wrong protection and aggravate visual fatigue. Studies have shown that our eyes are the most intolerant of blue light in the 400-440 nanometer band. Therefore, current manufacturers mainly block blue light in this band when producing anti-blue glasses. However, the blue waveband of electronic products is between 450 nanometers and 490 nanometers, so most anti-blue glasses have little protection in this waveband. In addition, the blocking rate of anti-blue glasses is 20%~30% to achieve a good anti-blue light effect, but now the blocking rate of anti-blue glasses on the market has basically reached 80%~90%. All in all, these blocking blue light glasses cannot prevent the blue light in the 450-490 nanometer band, and their high blocking rate will also cause a color shift, which makes people more likely to have eye fatigue and headache.
In daily life, the intensity of blue light is low, not enough to cause damage to the fundus, so ordinary people do not need to wear anti-blue glasses unless they are working in extremely strong light conditions or working in special environments. To protect the eyes, it is more important for people to develop good eye habits. For example, wear a pair of suitable glasses and read insufficient light and at an appropriate distance. Avoid using electronic products for a long time. Take a break for 20 to 30 seconds every 20 to 30 minutes, and look at the distance regularly. If you have dry eyes while reading the electronic screen, remember to blink to 12 times per minute. It is best to wear sunglasses when outdoors.
Advantages Of Acetate Frames
- Firmness and good gloss. The style is beautiful. It is not easy to be deformed and discolored, and it is durable.
- It is not easy to be corroded by the sweat of the skin and other irritants, and it will not be discolored by ultraviolet radiation.
- Diverse styles, various colors, suitable for many types of people, and easy to match clothes.
Progressive lenses and single vision lenses
Single vision lenses are the most commonly used prescription lenses. This lens type has a single field of view or a prescription ability of the entire lens and can be used to correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (supervision).
Progressive multifocal lenses are lenses with different upper and lower powers for the upper part to see far, and the lower part to see near. The distance from the fixed power above the lens to the fixed power below the lens does not change suddenly, but there is a gradual transition between the two through the gradual change in refractive power.
Ray-ban Driving Glasses
Ray-Ban sunglasses, an international brand, were created in the 1930s, especially for the US Air Force, to block the fierce light at high altitude, with a very good UV protection function. Through the precise manufacturing and polishing process, Ray-Ban lenses are free of optical deviation and will not cause eye strain, headache or fatigue after wearing.
Round face with square glasses
A round face is a relatively round type. This type of face looks very round but lacks a little beauty. The biggest feature of a round face is that it is softer, and the contours and features of the face will look gentle. However, it lacks a little tough line, so it is most suitable to choose square glasses for a round face. It can add a little small line to your round face and it will look more beautiful.
Many optometrists have problems adjusting their frames almost daily. In the eyes of the customer, it is simple to use tools, but in reality, the technology involved is pretty important. It is no exaggeration to say that a good pair of glasses and optometry, collocation is equally important. If the customer's optometry parameters are normal, and glasses collocation is accurate, but wearing is not comfortable. So the collocation of glasses is very key, and many problems can be solved by the collocation of glasses.
