The price of new lenses
The price of the new lenses depends on several factors, including if you have vision insurance. Another aspect to think about is that if your lenses need an anti-glare solution. If so, the lenses may be much more expensive. If you need eye exams and special lenses, the cost can be quite high. Scratched lenses are easier to repair. If you want your scratched lenses repaired by a professional, most opticians can pay very little.
Do kids need blue light blocking glasses?
1. American Ophthalmological Association
The American Ophthalmological Association clearly stated that it does not recommend any special glasses. The organization stated that there is no evidence that blue light from electronic devices can cause damage to the eyes. The discomfort that many people experience after watching electronic screens for a long time is due to symptoms such as dry eyes and even blurred vision caused by digital visual fatigue. The symptoms of using electronic products are related to how we use digital devices, not the blue light emitted from digital devices. There is currently no clinical evidence that blue light causes damage to the eyes, and measures to prevent blue light may be more harmful than blue light itself. It is too early to take preventive measures against blue light and may have unintended consequences.
2. British Association of Optometrists
The association believes that there is a lack of high-quality evidence to support the use of blue shaded glasses to improve people's visual performance, sleep quality, relieve eye fatigue, or protect macular health. There is no research on the effect of anti-blue eyeglass lenses on the health of the macula.
3. Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology
If the blue light is excessive, that is, the human eye is exposed to high-frequency and high-energy blue light, it will damage the rod cells. However, the rich blue environment with intensive exposure and the normalized environment are two different concepts. Therefore, it is unscientific to equate blue light with retinal damage. Individualized blue light protection guidance and recommendations should be put forward under different conditions such as different ages, health conditions, and working environments.
The frame of prescription glasses
At present, the more common materials for frames are non-metal and metal. Non-metals mainly include TR90, sheet material, etc., and metals include alloys, titanium, and so on. TR90 and sheet material are actually plastics, but they are firm and are not easy be deformed at room temperature. Also, they have good formability so that they can be made in many fashionable styles. The general alloy material has good firmness and flexibility, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to fade. The pure titanium frame is corrosion-resistant and very strong. It is about 40% lighter than the general alloy frame. It must be welded and electroplated in an oxygen-free state, which requires high equipment and technology. Relatively speaking, the price of TR90 and alloys will be lower, and pure titanium will be more expensive. You can choose according to your budget.
What Are the Advantages of High-Index Lenses?
In this section, we will show you the advantages of high-index lenses.
- Thanks to the slim shape and narrow edges, high index lenses offer wearers the flexibility to choose from a wide array of fashion-forward frames. Their size means that they can be easily paired with sleek metal frames or incorporated into rimless eyewear for an attractive barely-there look.
- High index lenses are more comfortable for extended use because they are lighter than the traditional counterparts.
- High index lenses are available with many of the same options as traditional lenses. For example, they can be either single-vision or progressive.
- For users with strong prescriptions, high index lenses mean no bulky, bottle-glasses appearance. This can reduce the unwanted bug-eye look traditionally associated with very thick lenses.
However, there are some negative voices of high index lenses.
Disadvantages of pure titanium frames
The material is soft, the glasses can not be made more delicate, only the lines are thicker, in order to ensure stability and strength.Usually, when you are not wearing a pure titanium glasses frame, it is better to put them in the case of glasses, to avoid pressure deformation.
What is hard coating on lenses?
Lenses are mainly added in two kinds of film: anti-reflection film and hard film (and some manufacturers produce anti-fogging film and mirror film, but not common). The anti-reflective film is mainly by coating the front surface of the lens with multiple layers of transparent materials with different refractive index and thickness to reduce the excess reflected light on the surface of the lens, by using the principle of light interference. The film can be applied to both glass and resin lenses. The way of hard film plating is usually a soaking process. After many times of soaking and cleaning, soaking in an organic solution containing ultrafine silicon element for a certain time, and then keeping it at a certain temperature for 4-5 hours, the fixed polymerization process of the film has been completed. The surface wear resistance of CR-39 coating can be increased by 2-4 pH, which is similar to the hardness of optical glass lenses.
Driving Glasses - KoalaEye
