At present, there are two prescriptions for reading glasses. One is to adjust the power of glasses with clear objects at close range, plus 1/3 of the power for adjustment. The other is to use low power that can see close objects clearly. The practice of many elderly people has proved that the latter one is better between two methods.
Operation and Requirements of Drop Ball Test
The ball, which is 0.625 inches in diameter and weighs 0.56 ounces (16 grams), falls from 50 inches (127 centimeters) and hits the center of the lens. The geometrical center of the lens should be struck by the ball within a circle 5/8 inches in diameter. If the lens does not break, it is called a safety lens. There can't be anything that restricts the ball from falling. It cracks across the entire thickness, containing laminated layers (if any), and divides into two or more separate sections across the entire diameter.
Can't Use Alcohol To Clean Glasses
Generally speaking, alcohol is not suitable for cleaning resin lenses. Resin lenses are relatively soft and are usually coated with a film. It not only improves the hardness of the lens, but also has more other functions. The lens film is not suitable for cleaning with harsh cleaning agents. As we all know, alcohol has a certain stimulating effect, so it is harmful to the film of the lens.

How to Pop Lenses Out of Glasses with Plastic Frames?
In this section, we will show you how to take glasses out of plastic frames. It would be much easier to remove lenses from plastic frames because lenses are not fitted as tightly in them as in metal frames.
Now, here is the tutorial.
- Many plastic lenses will come out easily as you push through your thumb from the inner side and fix your fingers on the other side.
- If they do not come off, you can choose to heat the plastic a little bit so that it expands and allows the lenses to come out.
- To heat the plastic frames, you can immerse the glasses in a bowl of hot water. The water should be hot, not warm but of course only as much as you can handle amicably.
- Be careful to not drop your lenses in the bowl. Dry them with a no microfiber cloth and then you can remove them. You can’t use any towels because those can damage any blue light or anti reflective covering.
After all steps are finished, you can remove lenses from glasses.
The Benefits of Anti-Glare Glasses
As is well known, glare is the excessive brightness caused by direct light or reflected light. It often occurs when sunlight bounces off a reflective surface like water or snow. Of course, anti-glare glasses can also be caused by other factors.
Standard plastic lenses are able to reflect approximately 8% of the light that reaches your glasses and high-index lenses often reflect up to 12% of available light. Hence, anti-glare glasses come in a lot of advantages.
The anti-reflective glasses can reduce eye strain and make your eyeglasses look more attractive because the anti-reflective coating can eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your eyeglass lenses. With this feature, more light can pass through your lenses to improve your vision with fewer distractions and the lenses look nearly invisible.
In addition, anti-glare glasses are helpful to high-index lenses, which reflect more light than regular plastic lenses. In general, the higher the index of refraction of the lens material, the more light will be reflected from the surface of the lenses.
Anti-glare glasses can protect your eyes from UV rays (sunlight that doesn’t appear on our visual spectrum). This feature can be enhanced by some photochromatic or polarized lenses.
Try to avoid wearing the following glasses.
If you need to wear glasses while driving, you'll need special glasses when driving at night, because common lenses reflect oncoming lights, which produces a faint glare. This will reduce your visibility. It's OK to wear contact lenses while driving. As you get older, your eyes become more sensitive to glare. Ordinary sunglasses or goggles are only suitable for wearing during the day, driving at night will seriously affect the vision (national standards stipulate that light transmittance of night driving glasses must be greater than75%). Although the all-weather driving glasses can weaken the strong lights, the vision darkens and affects road safety which does not meet the national standards for driving glasses at night. You should choose functional driving glasses that can block strong light, glare and increase the field of vision. This can effectively reduce the glare of the car lights but can filter out the extra harmful light. When worn at night, it can soften the strong lights and make the vision clearer. In this way, the safety of drivers is ensured, the fatigue of eyes is alleviated, and the radiation damage of harmful lights to glasses is prevented.
