What Are Progressive Lenses?
Your eyes change with your age. When your reach your 40s, you may find that it is difficult for you to focus between a book, a website on a computer screen and the conference room whiteboard. Progressive lenses are growing in popularity among people who need help seeing near, far and in-between.
Progressive lenses have grown in popularity and are one of the most common solutions to treat vision loss that occurs with age or presbyopia. Progressive lenses have a seamless increase in magnification from the top to the bottom of the lens, helping you see clearly at all distances with just one pair of glasses. The top portion of the lens enables you to see the far-away objects, the middle portion of the lens enables you to focus on the intermediate objects and the bottom to see objects close-up. The prescription changes little by little across the lens surface providing a gentle transition.
After knowing what the progressive lenses are, do you know what are the pros and cons of progressive lenses? If not, keep on your reading and we will show you some information.
Types of Bifocal Lenses
Executive: in this type of bifocal lens, the lens is separated completely from each other and the upper part of the lens and the lower part of the lens are divided into two equal halves. There is a distinction line and it is visible.
Progressive lens: these types of lenses are more popular than the other kind of lenses. There is no line in the progressive lens. There is a slow transition of the power from the upper part of the lens to the lower part of the lens.
Progressive multifocal lenses: a progressive multifocal lens gradually changes power from the upper part of the lens to the lower part of the lens and gives a smooth transition between the two different types of bifocal lenses. There is no distinction line in the lens. They are popular because they provide better adaption, comfort, and clarity than the other lenses.
What Do Trifocal Lenses Do?
Trifocal glasses can provide correction for some eye conditions including presbyopia and cataracts. Presbyopia often occurs in people who are between the age of 40 and 60. People’s eyesight starts to deteriorate and they are unable to focus at near. Wearing trifocal glasses can help correct blurred vision, eye strain, and headaches. The trifocal intraocular lens placed during cataract surgery can also resolve cataracts.

What is blue light?
Our daily lives are inseparable from mobile phones, computers, tablet computers, and other electronic products. Many people's eyesight is also going downhill due to long-term exposure to strong light electronic screens, and their eyes are more or less potentially adversely affected. It is found that many optical stores sell blue light filter glasses, which have the function of blocking 99.9% UV and scattered blue light, alleviating visual fatigue. They claim that these glasses can block short-wave blue light emitted by electronic products such as mobile phones and computers, and even prevent age-related macular degeneration so they are much sought after by consumers. The price of these so-called anti-blue-light glasses varies greatly, ranging from dozens of dollars to several thousand dollars. Do these blue light blocking glasses really have so many magical functions?
The natural light seen by the human eye is composed of a spectrum of different colors, including red light, orange light, yellow light, green light, blue light, indigo light, purple light, which gives people a visual feeling of white. Different wavelengths present different colors visually, and the shorter the wavelength, the higher the energy. At present, products with electronic screens such as computers and mobile phones use LEDs and other materials to emit light mainly in three colors of red, green, and blue, and blue light accounts for the main part. Blue light belongs to the range of visible light, belongs to short waves. And the wavelength is between 400 nanometers and 500 nanometers, which is close to ultraviolet and carries a large amount of energy. And this part from 400 nanometers to 450 nanometers is called high-energy short-wave blue light.
What Are Bifocal Glasses?
Bifocal lenses are divided into two parts to accommodate two different prescriptions in one lens. One area of the lens will have one prescription (usually distance) and a segment in the lower half will have the other (usually near vision).
Bifocal glasses are most used to correct presbyopia - an age-related eye condition where the eyes begin to struggle to focus on anything up close. This difficulty usually results in people requiring glasses with two different prescriptions, one for short and one for long-distance.
On bifocal glasses, there is a distinct line between the different prescriptions. Wearers have to look up and down to switch between the prescriptions they need, with long-distance prescriptions at the top and near vision at the bottom.
Old glasses can be second-hand goods.
You can set your sights even further through sites like Freecycle, where you can meet like-minded people who are actively trying to become more conscious consumers. You can get involved in the circular economy by selling your eyeglasses on local websites such as Gumtree or eBay.
