Limitations of NXT lenses
NXT lenses made from Trivex can't be cut by means of traditional edge cutting ways, requiring certain edge grinders, which has caused some problems for retail stores. Therefore, now NXT lenses are more used in some glasses, like sunglasses, protective goggles, and so on.
Have a try and confirm the front and side of the glasses.
Confirmation data: pupil height, flat frame surface, size of frame surface, the harmony of nose arc, the contact area of nose support, size of temple bend. Finally, remember a big principle: You should have no sense of pressure, and in a small range of motion, the frame does not shift. Good glasses should be perfectly integrated with the face so that people can not feel the existence of glasses. Good design is invisible. The lens above 800 degrees will be slightly heavy, so it is not recommended to choose the elastic temple and smooth metal temple. The temple is too slender, and at the same time is all metal, easy to slide frequently.
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 a progressive lens?
Progressive multifocal lenses are lenses with different upper and lower powers for seeing far above and below for seeing near. The distance from the fixed far 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. Compared with ordinary lenses, there are many advantages. The appearance of the lens is like a single vision lens, and the dividing line of the power change is not visible. Not only is the appearance beautiful, but more importantly, it protects the age privacy of the wearer, and there is no need to worry about revealing the age secret due to wearing glasses.
Since the change of the lens power is gradual, there will be no image jump. It is comfortable to wear and easy to adapt. So it is easy to be accepted. Because the degree is gradual, the replacement of the adjustment effect is gradually increased according to the shortening of the short distance. There is no adjustment fluctuation, and it is not easy to cause visual fatigue. Clear vision can be obtained at all distances in the visual range.
Such a pair of glasses meets the use of long-distance, near-use and various distances in the middle at the same time. It is especially good news for teachers, doctors, music workers, and computer operators, because these people not only need to see far and near objects clearly, but most of the time they also need to be able to see middle distance objects such as blackboards, piano scores, and computer screens. . This is not possible with any lens other than progressive lenses.
John Lennon Imagine
The circular wire-rimmed glasses like these were made popular by the Beatles' idols in the 1960s and immediately became a favorite of hippies and music lovers around the world. This modern version has an ultra-light frame made of stainless steel that resists rust and corrosion. Flexible spring hinges and coated temples are very comfortable. For fans of retro-inspired accessories, the glasses are a favorite.
A saddle bridge is a type of bridge.
The bridge of the nose can make your nose look slimmer. There are two main types. The keyhole distributes the weight of the glasses to one side of the nose rather than the top. It's a good choice for those with a broad nose. The Keyhole Bridge is old-fashioned in the classic style, like a Keyhole. This design creates a small gap in the top part to give the impression of space, thus making your nose look smaller. Saddle bridge is a more modern style and usually goes around your nose with almost no gaps at the top. This close contact will make your nose look tighter.
Problems you may encounter when wearing your glasses.
The glasses are too tight. They clamp to the temple. Glasses slip easily. Too long or too short at the bend, and there are too small contact areas of the nose pad. Glasses are too far from the eye, and the lenses are crooked or asymmetrical. These are some of the problems you may encounter when wearing glasses.
