What is a progressive lens?
A progressive lens is a lens whose upper sides are used to see far, and the lower side is used to see near. The distance from the fixed distance power above the lens to the near power fixed below the lens does not change suddenly, but a gradual transition between the two through the gradual change in refractive power.
Standard progressive lenses are multifocal lenses with three observation areas, farsightedness, intermediate vision, and nearsightedness. Unlike bifocals, there are no visible lines between each viewing area. They have a seamless, invisible design, where the optical power changes 'gradually' throughout the lens. Many people confuse 'bifocal' or 'trifocal' with 'progressive' but remember that bifocals and trifocals have visible lines in the lens, while progressive lenses do not. Because progressive lenses have no lines in the lens, they are more popular multifocal lenses than bifocal lenses. However, is progressive lens good for eyes?
Can you wear blue light glasses while driving?
The damage of blue light has a cumulative effect. The longer the exposure time is, the more serious the damage of retinal cells will be, which will eventually lead to irreversible damage of the structure and function of the retina. Once the retina has permanent damage, degeneration will directly affect the metabolism and function of photoreceptor cells, resulting in vision loss. It depends on the glasses you're wearing. The function of anti-blue light glasses depends on the material of the glasses. Some blue light glasses have a special anti-reflective coating, which can reduce glare. These glasses are definitely helpful when driving at night.
What Are Trivex Lenses?
What is Trivex? Trivex lenses were first produced in 2001. Trivex lenses come with several features such as light, impact-resistance, and high-performance strength. Recently, the use of Trivex as ophthalmic lens material has grown in popularity. Lenses made from Trivex material fulfill the same safety standards as those made from polycarbonate.
In addition, because of Trivex’s manufacturing process, plastic lenses sporting Trivex material do not distort vision as much. Trivex lenses offer 100 percent protection from UAV and UAB rays, sharper central vision, and sharper peripheral vision. Trivex was developed for military applications, so it is good for outdoor use. Other benefits include resistance to chemicals and better light refraction.
So, in the following section, we will show you the advantages and disadvantages of the Trivex lenses.
Why you should be careful when choosing blue-light-blocking glasses?
Prices of blue light blocking glasses in the market now range from 200 to 300 yuan to several thousand yuan. According to the report, current eyewear standards do not prescribe the effects of blue-resistant lenses, and consumers are advised to choose blue-resistant lenses with caution. It is recommended that people with specific eye diseases such as macular disease, age-related macular degeneration, macular hole, and diabetic fundus lesions should choose anti-blue light glasses according to the advice of an ophthalmologist.
Pure titanium spectacle frame
Of course, we still have another option, which is to buy a pair of pure titanium glasses. Pure titanium is lightweight, tough, and compatible with the human body. Also, it has strong corrosion resistance, resistant to rust, does not cause skin allergies, and is more durable. With the gradual popularity of pure titanium materials, the price is gradually becoming more affordable, and people who feel troublesome to wear anti-allergic sleeves can try pure titanium spectacle frames.
Men's clear glasses are a fashion item.
Although glasses are the tool that corrects myopia, a lot of people like to dress up fashion with it now. Men's fashion frames allow you to express your taste and fashion sense and can increase your appearance and image. An eyeglass frame is an important part of a pair of glasses, mainly playing the role of supporting the lens. While the beautiful appearance of the eyeglass frame can play a certain role in aesthetics. Handsome frames add points for appearance.
A clear glasses frame is not only for a schoolgirl. Clear and transparent design more feel cool and refreshing in scorching summer. At the same time, it will not cover the facial features too much, making the face more delicate and clean. Small pure and fresh picture frames tie in some of the clothes of literature and art naturally. Therefore, the scope of use of clear glasses is very limited, only suitable for fashionable men.
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.
