What are NXT Lenses?
NXT lenses are made of Trivex materials. Trivex (Chinese name: Ethyl Carbamate Polymer) was invented by PPG in 2001.
Impact resistance is the main feature of the NXT lens. As a visual armor material originally used in the military field, Trivex has effective impact protection to the eye when it is most demanded. It is 10 times stronger than PC lenses in impact resistance and will last for life under normal use. It is the only explosion-proof safety lens on the market that can withstand external forces and turns.
Patented color injection technology :
Color representation is another important feature of NXT lenses. The biggest defect of the regular lens in dyeing is color aberration. The same color of the lens with different luminosity will produce different effects. The higher the refractive index, the serious the error. NXT lenses are a breakthrough in this respect. The patented color injection technology that infuses the color into the raw material gives the lens a natural color, ensuring that color aberrations are minimized and that they do not fade or change color over time or over long periods of use like other materials.
Abbe number and internal stress:
The Abbe number of NXT lenses made of Trivex is 43~45, which is close to CR39(58) and higher than PC lenses (29~32) and high folding lenses (32~41). At the same time, because the NXT lens is produced by the casting process, there is no stress in the finished lens, which further reduces the rainbow phenomenon, providing a guarantee for the clear visual effect and reducing eye fatigue.
The specific gravity of NXT lens is 1.11g/cm3, 16% lighter than CR39 (1.32g/cm3) and 10% lighter than PC tablet (1.22g/cm3). The Trivex 1.53NXT medium-fold lens is so light that it can float.
What is an aspheric lens?
Strictly speaking, any lens with a refractive surface that is not a sphere is an aspheric lens, including ordinary astigmatism lens, progressive multi-focal lens, Aspheric apical lens, etc. But customarily, our daily aspheric lens refers to the Aspheric apical lens. From the center of the lens to the periphery, the radius of curvature increases (the surface of the lens flattens out).
Glasses should not have serious color differences.
Children's eyes are not fully developed, and the eyeball is still growing slowly, at this time it is best not to wear such blue light glasses with the serious color difference. If you always see things with color differences, it will cause eye discomfort, resulting in increased myopia, but the opposite. The big color difference will cause low light transmittance, affecting child macula development. In the case of long-term distortion and discoloration, visual physiology and psychology will be affected.
Blue light glasses for children have special lenses that block some light waves, which may help protect children's growing eyes from digital eye strain. Blue light lenses sometimes have a slight yellow tint. You can buy prescription or non-prescription glasses with child-size frames and lenses that filter blue light. They don't filter out all the blue light, but they can reduce your child's exposure to blue-violet light by 80 percent or more.
Study On the Night Driving Glasses
Researchers at Harvard's Schepens Eye Research Institute recently conducted a study to find out if wearing night driving glasses while driving at night is good for vision. All 22 participants drove under four conditions that simulated night driving, wearing either yellow night driving glasses or glasses with clear lenses. Each participant drove with or without the headlight glare simulator activated to simulate the effect of oncoming traffic. The study found that wearing glasses while driving at night didn't seem to improve: how well the participants were able to recognize pedestrians at night and negative effects of headlight glare on pedestrian detection. Our data suggest that wearing yellow lenses while driving at night does not improve performance at the most critical task: pedestrian detection, the study's authors said. A small 2019 study showed that night driving glasses can actually slow down visual reflection by a fraction of a second, making night vision worse.
What Are Progressive Glasses?
Trifocal glasses and no-line progressive lenses are multi-focal glasses, meaning that their lenses offer multiple correction fields. Whether you have been wearing multi-focal glasses for a while, or you have just begun to look at options for correcting vision after 40 years old, you may have heard the terms trifocal or progressive glasses.
Progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision, and they supply all the in-between corrections. Progressive lenses have three different viewing zones, as trifocal glasses do, and they have progressive powers of corrections, easing eye strain and providing the most natural vision correction.

What Are Standard Progressive Lenses?
Standard progressive lenses are a type of progressive lens with plenty of room at the bottom for your near vision. If you need to see something far away and up close, such as a book or magazine, this lens is for you. Transitioning between these viewing areas is often painless for your eyes.
