Getting an eye exam every two years is sufficient if you are a healthy person, under 60 years old, with no eye health problems (glaucoma, family history of blindness, lazy eye), without systematic health conditions (high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol), and you are not wearing a contact lens. Annual check-ups are recommended for those who are contact lens wearer. What does it mean by 20/20 vision? The 20/20 vision is the normal human vision, wherein 20/20 letter is the size an average person can read without wearing eyeglasses from a distance of 20 feet. An optician is an eye professional that deals with eyeglasses frame to ensure that the prescription is suited with the frame, wherein a person with high farsightedness may not do well using a rimless design.
Eyeglasses do not only improve vision but are now also make fashion statement to the wearer. What are the various kinds of eyeglasses lens? In the past, eyeglasses are generally made of glass that can break easily, but now, eyeglasses are generally made of high-tech plastics, are lighter, filter-treated, and don’t easily break. The following high-tech plastic lenses are thinner, lighter, and more scratch-resistant than older plastic lenses: polycarbonate, aspheric, photochromic, trivex, high-index plastic, and polarized sunglasses. Polycarbonate lenses are perfect for those who need to wear eyeglasses while playing sports, working on high eye risk places, and for children who are tough and rough with their specs. As compared to thick old-school eyeglasses, high-index plastic lenses are good for people who need strong prescription because these are generally lighter and thinner. Photochromic eyeglasses are like automatic sunglasses because exposure to direct sun changes the clear lens to tinted lens. For those who are driving and are engaged in sports, polarized eyeglasses is a perfect match as it reduces glare from water and other surfaces.
There are also different types of lens’ shape including concave lens for those with nearsightedness, convex lens for people with farsightedness, and cylinder shape for those with astigmatism. For those people with more than one vision problems, they may need multifocal eyeglasses or eyeglasses with different sections (upper, lower).
