Precription eyeglasses are the most common and least invasive solution to correcting vision problems. Innovations on eyeglasses such as progressive lenses give people with presbyopia clear vision at all distances.
-Generally more affordable than eye surgery and contact lenses in the long run. A single pair can be worn for a long time unti your prescription changes.
-Can provide additional protection from natural elements like wind and dust, and from blue light for people who are often exposed to digital screens.
-More convenient as it requires little cleaning and maintenance than contact lenses.
-Many different options on lens and frames can be worn to express your personality or fashion. Frames can be re-used even if your lens need to be changed if your prescription changes over time.
-May require adjustments or even pressure on sinuses and ears when not fitted properly.
-Easily fogs up in cold weather or low temperature.
-Lenses can be easily scratched or damaged unless protective lens coating is applied.
TYPES OF EYEGLASSES: PROGRESSIVE, BIFOCAL & READING GLASSES
Reading glasses are designed for close-up work and while they don’t have to be worn all day, their optical power is limited.The lenses are a standard vision parameter, not measured to your own specific vision needs. While they may help you temporarily, you may feel easily tired when using them for a long time.
Bifocal lenses consist of two lens segments separated by a visible line. They’re used to correct vision at two distances, including reading distance lost to presbyopia, but they don’t offer the same fluidity as progressive lenses. You have to adjust your position to find the right zone all the time and cope with the lines between the lens segments.
Equipped with a correction power that varies smoothly and seamlessly over the entire surface of the lenses. At the top they adapt to far vision; in the middle, intermediate vision; and at the bottom, near vision. The result is a simple and effective solution to presbyopia and compatible with all visual corrections.
