The Pros of Transitions Lenses
First, we will show you the advantages of the transition lenses.
Transition lenses or photochromic glasses are quite cost-effective. With the transition lenses, you don’t have to buy two pairs of glasses: prescription glasses or normal glasses and you do not need to switch them frequently. So, they are also convenient and bring you great convenience.
Carrying two pairs of glasses means that you are much more likely to lose or misplace either of them. Having only one pair of glasses can limit the risk of losing glasses. In addition, transition glasses provide more protection than normal sunglasses. They can filter out a good deal of harmful UV rays from the sun so as to protect your eyes.
What’s more, transition glasses come in a lot of different styles, shades, and tints suitable for anyone’s taste, so it won’t limit your fashion and make you look more fashionable.
How Do Progressive Lenses Work?
So, how do progressive glasses work? Progressive lenses allow you to see at all distances with one pair of glasses. They start with your distance prescriptions at the top of the lens and increase as you move toward the bottom of the lens. You can move your head position to allow you to focus through different areas of the lens.
Move your head upwards to see something in the distance, and hold it straight for intermediate or arm’s length vision and down for near vision for objects that are close up. Apart from the aesthetic improvement of the lens without the line segments, progressive lenses avoid the visual discontinuity or image-jump when your eyes shift from one zone to the other in non-progressive multifocals.
What is the best lens material?
The world's first resin lens was made of CR-39 material, and CR-39 is still the main optical lens material in Europe and the United States. After the end of World War II, people found that compared with glass, the main lens material at that time, the light transmittance of CR-39 is high, and it can block ultraviolet light. In addition, CR-39 can be dyed, not easy to fog, and has small dispersion (CR-39's Abbe number is 58) and other benefits.
Who should wear blue light glasses?
Teenagers, middle-aged and old people need to wear blue light glasses. The lens of a teenager is clear, pure, and still developing. Their eyes are less resistant to blue light than adults and are more vulnerable to long-term exposure to blue light, which can promote the development of myopia. Teenagers study more nervous, are free to love to play computer games, love to watch TV programs. Blue light damage can be said to be everywhere. As a result, teenagers are among the biggest victims of blue light. Macular degeneration is a common disease in the elderly, usually occurring after the age of 45, and the incidence increases with age. Blue light can accelerate the progression of macular degeneration, especially in patients following cataract surgery. Blue-blocking glasses are still the best preventative measure.
When do you need prism glasses?
If you experience symptoms of headache, dizziness, and nausea, then these symptoms may be caused by a subtle disorder between the eyes. This situation is called Binocular Vision Dysfunction(BVD). Double vision occurs in the situation that light enters the eye at the wrong angle and sends two different images to the brain. Some people have diplopia, where they can see only one image, and flat images are often blurry. Prism glasses can help to change visual deformities. Prism lenses can be helpful to prevent myopia and farsightedness in both eyes. If vision deteriorates in one eye, the eye muscle can use an external corrective prism to prevent blindness. Standard glasses are made of a combination of prisms that can correct the focal length errors and corneal curvature. The prism moves the image up and down or left and right to form an overall view.
Bertoni polarized glasses
Bertoni polarized night vision driving glasses are made of strong, flexible, durable, and ultralight polycarbonate. Yellow polarization increases contrast, improves visual acuity, and filters out blue light. They are great for drivers, cyclists, and winter sports enthusiasts. The driving glasses with polarized yellow lenses block glare from headlights, reduce night driving glare, improve night vision, and improve color clarity and visual clarity. They are ideal for driving in low-light conditions. Most sports sunglasses glasses frames and goggles are made of polycarbonate because of their strong, thermoplastic, lightweight, and impact resistance features.
