How much should a pair of prescription glasses cost?
Speaking of glasses, everyone's first feeling may be that it is not cheap to have a pair of prescription glasses. Just such a small pair of glasses, ranging from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Why is the difference so big? So some people go online to buy glasses for dozens of dollars as if they look the same. But is it actually the same? There are a lot of differences between the glasses for dozens of dollars and for thousands of dollars, apart from the price. Also, you should be responsible for your own eyes.
Better glasses brands will adopt better designs to ensure beautiful appearance and structural safety, and have stricter quality standards. At first, these glasses are not cheap because the cost has increased a lot. In addition to the brand, different materials, process requirements, and mass production scale will also affect the cost and thus the final selling price. As for the question of what price glasses to choose, my suggestion is to choose the high-priced one within your budget. So, to choose a suitable pair of glasses, what aspects need to be considered?
Eye problems that may occur while driving.
Visual fatigue and xerophthalmia: when driving, the spirit and eyes are in a highly tense state, reducing the blink of an eye, which will easily cause eye fatigue and xerophthalmia. Flash glare -- car headlights and city light pollution -- can cause serious damage to the eyes. UV damage: UV radiation is strong when driving in the daytime, especially in the plateau and snow weather. Nocturnal myopia: nocturnal light is insufficient, so it can make the eye pupil dilate, causing nocturnal vision to drop influence driving safety.
How do myopic glasses work?
The formation principle of myopia is that when the light from the outside world enters the eyeball, it is refracted by the eyeball's refractive system and cannot be accurately imprinted on the retina. The image is in front of the retina. If a concave lens is placed in front of the eye before the light enters the eye, it shifts the focus of the myopic eye from a point in front of the retina to the back, so that it lands directly on the surface of the retina. When parallel light passes through a concave lens, it diverges, meaning that it has already diverged once before entering the eye and then is refracted normally by the eye's refractive system. When the light is refracted through the eyeball, the distance of the image will be longer. So the distance of the image will be correspondingly pushed back compared to the non-divergent light. But it will just fall on the retina, and the image will be accurate in the right place.
The categories of rimless glasses
Rimless glasses can be divided into metal rimless glasses and plastic rimless glasses according to the material. According to the metal category, they can be divided into nickel-copper alloy, memory titanium alloy rimless frames.
According to the elastic order of the frame, the softest and elastic kind is the plastic rimless glasses. The benefits are the lightest weight and the lowest price. The disadvantages are the short service life, faded look after the sun, and single appearance, which are suitable for children or teenagers in the stage of corrective treatment. The second elasticity is the memory titanium alloy rimless frame. They use aviation metal titanium as the raw material, suitable for people with sensitive skin, and have lighter quality, better durability, more styles.
Before buying glasses, it is recommended that you must go to a regular eye hospital or optometry organization, and carefully record your own degrees. Optometry is the focus of attention for glasses. Teenagers use more eyes and refraction changes quickly. The most accurate refraction data can be achieved by optometry before matching glasses. Moreover, correct optometry is not only to determine the degrees of myopia but to understand other conditions like astigmatism and pupil distance. Now comprehensive optometry is widely used, and the results of optometry are more accurate.
What are bifocals?
A bifocal lens is a lens with two focal points. Because of the imaging principle of the lens, even half of the lens can still present a complete image, and the two images do not interfere with each other. In the past, both short-sighted glasses and presbyopia glasses were called single-focal lenses, which had only one focus. Later it developed to the bifocal lens, and the same lens is divided into upper and lower two parts. The upper part of that lens is used when seeing far, and you look down when seeing close objects, just the reading distance, naturally used the second half.
What is the progressive multifocal lens?
The lens of progressive multifocal glasses can change the refraction of the lens at the upper part of the central channel of the line of sight, which can effectively solve the difference of refraction when people view objects at different distances from long, medium, and short distances. Depending on demand, people have the flexibility to change or compensate vision according to visual distance, making it easier to help to adjust your vision in a variety of situations.
