1. Find the Right Lenses: Single Vision or Varifocals
Did you know that today over 61% of the UK population wear glasses? While this may be a surprising figure, it’s worth noting that not all vision impairment is the same. Some people struggle with near-sightedness, while others deal with far-sightedness, and there are some who may just need a pair of reading glasses.
Single vision lenses correct either far-sightedness (hyperopia) or short-sightedness (myopia). With this in mind, it’s a pretty simple matter when choosing the right pair of eyeglasses. It’s worth noting that the higher the dioptre value the thicker the lens, and consequently the thicker the frames.
Tip: Single vision lenses tends to be the right choice for the majority of spectacle wearers.
At around the age of 40, eyes start to gradually deteriorate and is known as presbyopia. This is a separate condition to any existing near or far-sightedness and requires additional corrective aid. Sharpness at close range begins to weaken and become increasingly difficult and this is when reading glasses are needed. These type of glasses are designed with a close range of approximately 30 to 45 cm in mind. The only disadvantage is that you constantly need to switch between glasses, as they are not suitable when viewing things at a distance. Often times reading glasses sport narrow frames so that you can peek over the edge. Varifocals are A practical alternative to reading glasses.
Varifocal glasses not only correct a near or far-sightedness, but also improve the presbyopia. Your glasses have three different ‘zones’: The upper viewing area for viewing things at a distance and lower one for things nearby. The middle zone covers the intermediary range, and it is here that varifocals lenses are able to create a seamless transition between near and far ranges. So that these three zones have enough space, frames need to big enough for variceal lenses. In this case, small frames are generally not suitable.
