Alloy glasses frame
Spectacle frames made of the alloy have relatively high hardness, are more resistant to friction, are not easy to fade, have a better texture, and are made of more styles, which are essential for fashionistas.
Disadvantages of Progressive Lens
There are deformation areas under the left and right sides of the lens, which make the image blurry and irregular. It takes 1-3 weeks to get used to it. In addition, it has a narrower field of view in the near and middle distances, and long-term concentration on the narrow focal point can easily make the eyes tired. Suitable for people who need to alternate between distant, medium, and near vision.
However, with the development of science and technology, more and more progressive multifocal glasses have emerged that have a wider field of view, more comfortable wearing, and better meet the needs of eyes. Nowadays, the use rate of progressive lenses among middle-aged and elderly people abroad is quite high. Single-lens and double-lens reading glasses are gradually being replaced by progressive multifocal glasses.
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.
Benefits of MR Lenses
It is made of MR series material of Mitsui Chemical, Japan. The biggest advantage is that it is both thin and has good optical properties. Besides, the material has good impact resistance and toughness, so it is not easy to be deformed or broken. Wearing such lenses not only looks more beautiful, but clear and comfortable, and safe at ease. Using a lower density polyurethane material, the lens is lighter and thinner, making it more comfortable to wear. The higher machining success rate increases the processing efficiency and reduces the processing cost. The film compatibility and dyeing properties of MR™ are better than those of ordinary materials, which can improve the quality of functional lenses like photochromic lenses and myopic sunglasses. MR-8™ combines high refractive index, high Abbe number (for better imaging), and better processing performance, suitable for rimless, half-frame, and other glasses, which are less broken and safer. MR-7™ provides better dyeing performance, faster and more uniform color application, and can be used for myopic sunglasses. MR-8 Plus™ is safer and further improves the impact resistance of the lens while maintaining the high Abbe number of MR materials.

Learn the 9 Necessary Parts of Glasses
Rims: the rims lend form and character to your eyeglasses and they also provide function by holding the lenses in place.
End pieces: they are small parts on the frame that extend outward and connect the lenses to the temple.
Bridge: it is the center of the frame that rests on your nose and joins the two rims together.
Hinges: hinges sit between the end pieces and the temple, allowing you to close your glasses folding the temple inward.
Lenses: lenses are the essential parts of eyeglasses. They are clear pieces of glasses, plastic or other lens materials held in place by the rims. The lenses are crafted and shaped with your unique prescription to help you to see clearly.
Screws: they are the small metal fasteners near the hinges and they are used to connect the end pieces with the temples.
Nose pads: nose pads give your glasses a more comfortable and secure fit. They are the round plastic pieces under the bridge that sit on your nose.
Pad arms: pad arms are able to extend from the rims and hold the nose pads in place. They are adjustable to fit the natural shape of your face.
Temples: temples are the long arms on both sides of the frame that fit over your ears for a snug fit.
These are all the 9 essential parts of eyeglasses. Knowing the name of parts of glasses can help you to repair them once they are broken or crooked.
