What are non-prescription glasses? It is important to note that the non-prescription glasses have no corrective power, while non-prescription reading glasses offer some level of magnification, enlarging what you see up-close.
If you don’t have a vision problem, wearing Plano glasses shouldn’t be a problem since they will neither damage your eyes nor cause structural issues. Some non-prescription specs, such as the type that blocks damaging blue light, can actually be beneficial to your eye health.

Is blue light blocking worth it?
There are two main problems with anti-blue glasses currently on the market. One is that the place to be prevented is not preventable, and the other is that people have color casts due to wrong protection and aggravate visual fatigue. Studies have shown that our eyes are the most intolerant of blue light in the 400-440 nanometer band. Therefore, current manufacturers mainly block blue light in this band when producing anti-blue glasses. However, the blue waveband of electronic products is between 450 nanometers and 490 nanometers, so most anti-blue glasses have little protection in this waveband. In addition, the blocking rate of anti-blue glasses is 20%~30% to achieve a good anti-blue light effect, but now the blocking rate of anti-blue glasses on the market has basically reached 80%~90%. All in all, these blocking blue light glasses cannot prevent the blue light in the 450-490 nanometer band, and their high blocking rate will also cause a color shift, which makes people more likely to have eye fatigue and headache.
In daily life, the intensity of blue light is low, not enough to cause damage to the fundus, so ordinary people do not need to wear anti-blue glasses unless they are working in extremely strong light conditions or working in special environments. To protect the eyes, it is more important for people to develop good eye habits. For example, wear a pair of suitable glasses and read insufficient light and at an appropriate distance. Avoid using electronic products for a long time. Take a break for 20 to 30 seconds every 20 to 30 minutes, and look at the distance regularly. If you have dry eyes while reading the electronic screen, remember to blink to 12 times per minute. It is best to wear sunglasses when outdoors.
Difference Between Driving Glasses And Night Vision Goggles
The special effect of polarized glasses is to eliminate and filter the scattered light in the beam of light effectively so that the light can be put into the visual image of glasses with the right track, and the field of vision is clear and natural. The effect of night vision goggles is that they allow the wearer to observe the surroundings at night without being affected by light. For example, aviation accidents can be greatly reduced through the use of navigation winches equipped with forward-looking infrared cameras on aircraft and by requiring pilots to wear goggles fitted with night vision goggles.
Common Problems with Varifocal Glasses
In this section, we will list some common problems with varifocal glasses. The most common problem with varifocal glasses is people being unable to focus on what they need to. Losing focus often leads to some discomforts such as headaches or dizziness when performing tasks that require quick changes in near and middle-distance focus.
Besides, some people also experience a sort of swimming feeling when they are walking. It may be caused by being very aware of the distortions in your peripheral vision as well as the reading portion at the lower part of the lenses.
So, how to use varifocal glasses? The best way is to keep yourself from looking downward as you walk. You may also experience soft focus at the edges of the lenses and need to move your head more to see near objects better.
Note the ratio of the lens to the face.
Usually, the vertical length of the lens of longer glasses can have a visual effect of reducing the proportion of the face. In addition, in the selection of the glasses, you should pay attention to the distance between the end of the eye and the glasses so the best ratio is that the eye is in the middle of the glasses.
