It is to avoid that your contact lens case is contaminated by cosmetic bags. Some dust from cosmetic products can easily contaminate contact lens cases, so stay away from cosmetics.
What Are Progressive Lenses?
Your eyes change with your age. When your reach your 40s, you may find that it is difficult for you to focus between a book, a website on a computer screen and the conference room whiteboard. Progressive lenses are growing in popularity among people who need help seeing near, far and in-between.
Progressive lenses have grown in popularity and are one of the most common solutions to treat vision loss that occurs with age or presbyopia. Progressive lenses have a seamless increase in magnification from the top to the bottom of the lens, helping you see clearly at all distances with just one pair of glasses. The top portion of the lens enables you to see the far-away objects, the middle portion of the lens enables you to focus on the intermediate objects and the bottom to see objects close-up. The prescription changes little by little across the lens surface providing a gentle transition.
After knowing what the progressive lenses are, do you know what are the pros and cons of progressive lenses? If not, keep on your reading and we will show you some information.
Find the 5 frames you dug. Try it for 5 days. Spend some time with your new frames to see which ones are right for you. With home trials, you can try on up to five pairs at a time. And if that's not enough, with their virtual try-on service, you can try on any frame you want right away. Put all five frames back in the box, tear off the current shipping label to reveal the pre-paid return label.
Progressive lenses and single vision lenses
Single vision lenses are the most widely used optical lenses and are suitable for the general population.
Progressive lenses are suitable for below people.
① Myopia control lenses for teenagers. Progressive lenses are used to relieve visual fatigue and control the development speed of myopia.
② Anti-fatigue lenses for adults. Progressive lenses are used for teachers, doctors, people who use too much computer at close range to reduce visual fatigue caused by work.
③ Progressive lenses for Middle-aged and elderly people. A pair of glasses for middle-aged and elderly people to easily see near and far.
Drivers can wear night-vision goggles
Night-vision goggles can prevent headlights from blinding, add color saturation, and make the field of vision clearer. The normal night vision glasses are golden yellow in color and have a metal coating on the surface. This is the use of diamond high perspective reflection film technology, in the lens to add color and film layer, in order to maximize the brightness of the object being seen. It is to compensate for the light for driving, which makes light pass through your eye. It can increase the three-dimensional sense of objects, making the line of sight more clear, to avoid confusion caused by blinding headlights.
How to Tighten Glasses by Yourself
After your glasses being used for a while, they will become loosen. In this situation, you may want to ask for a professional optical person to adjust or tighten it. It would be a way but with some inconvenience. So, you can also choose to tighten glasses by yourself.
Why the glasses will become loose? It can be caused by various reasons. Most people wear and remove their glasses several times every day. The back and forth movements of the glasses’ arms will increase the possibility that they will become loose.
If the glasses become loose, you can choose to tighten them by adjusting the temple arms. Most eyeglasses have a screw located at the temple hinge on both sides. To tighten glasses by yourself, you can choose to tighten this screw to make your glasses more comfortable or prevent them from slipping down your nose again. You had better check these screws periodically so you can tighten them before they fall out.
Basic principles of progressive lenses
The surface of the progressive slice is divided into five regions. There are far, middle, and near optical areas. They are respectively corresponding to see distant objects, middle distance objects in the near distance objects. One pair of glasses is multi-purpose. In appearance, it is not very different from regular lenses. There is no clear dividing line. Distal use area: The area above the progressive slice is the distal use area, which is used to correct the distal refractive error. Proximity area: from the matching lens cross down, the refractive power of the lens continuously increases the positive degree, which is used to see close objects. Gradient area: The channel connecting the far and near areas. It is an area of regular change from top to bottom, used for transitioning and seeing objects at intermediate distances. The length of the gradient is very important for the wearer's adaptation. The rate at which the degree of gradient changes is called gradient. The gradient can be uniform or variable. Peripheral area: Changes in the surface curvature of the lens will lead to aberrations in the peripheral areas on both sides of the lens, mainly astigmatism and prism effect, which will interfere with a vision to a certain extent, resulting in blurred vision or distortion. And it will affect the wearer's adaptation to the progressive lens.
