Order Prescription Glasses

Glasses Direct is an online retailer based in the United Kingdom that supplies discount-priced spectacles.
It was founded by James Murray Wells in 2004 joining the small existing sector of online retailers. It has recently received investment from two major venture capital firms.
It is also notable for the legal and regulatory attempts to close it down by several major bricks and mortar competitors.
In the UK a customer can go to an opticians (shop) on the high street and purchase a fixed price eye examination, from which the optician will issue a written prescription. This can then be used at any opticians to have spectacles made.
A common complaint is that the prices UK opticians charge for spectacles are too high. Such claims about UK prices are common in many...

Undercorrection to Prevent Nearsighted Progression

Over the years there has been discussion of trying to under correct the nearsightedness, rather than prescribing the full correction, in order to slow down nearsighted prescription changes. Researchers reporting in Grafe’s Archives for Clinical and Experimental Ophthalmology studied the effects of undercorrection of myopia on myopia progression and eye length elongation in a population of 12-year-olds. They followed more than 2,000 children for 1 year and used careful analysis to consider the effects of how much near work, how much outdoor activity and the amount of time glasses were actually used as well as the degree of nearsightedness. The results demonstrated that over a period of 1 year, prescribing an undercorrection or full correction of myopia by wearing spectacles did not show any differences in myopia progression.

Dirty Lenses

I always felt that suffering chronic depression was like walking around with dirty lenses on. No matter how pretty, colorful and bright the view is all you can see is grey. You go through life noticing every single dark little aspect of life. You see the ugly and nasty little details while ignoring the magnificent and beautiful things life kindly present us. They may be there, right in front of your face, and yet you can’t witness them. You spent your life lamenting all the misery and pain life put your through on a daily basis. You spent your life wondering what are you being punished for. Depression lenses are not only dirty but they also have the power to amplify what you see.
