Glasses

Glasses, also known as eyeglasses or spectacles, are frames bearing lenses worn in front of the eyes. They are normally used for vision correction. Safety glasses are a kind of eye protection against flying debris or against visible and near visible light or radiation. Sunglasses allow better vision in bright daylight, and may protect one's eyes against damage from high levels of ultraviolet light. Specialized glasses may be used for viewing specific visual information. Sometimes glasses are worn simply for aesthetic or fashion purposes.

Do You Struggle at the Computer?

Do you struggle at the computer because you are on it 8 hours or more a day and those progressive lenses just don’t seem to work. They are called Near Variable Focus Lenses. Unlike progressives which give you distance on the top of the lenses and slowly progressing to your near prescription towards the lower portion of the lens-hence they are called progressive lenses-these Near Variable Focus Lenses are made... Unlike progressives, they are made so that you do not have to raise your chin and drop your eyes to find the portion you would like to read. As you are looking straight on to the computer the whole upper portion of the lens give you full clarity and as you lower your eyes you will be able to read fully.

I was then sent to the Eye Doctor for an in-depth examination. The Optician agreed without any issue. He then set up an ultra-HD-camera to take a photograph of my retinae.
