Eyewear Lenses

Eyeglasses consist of a frame and two lenses. Here is what you need to know about the latter.

When choosing lenses you have two options: plastic lenses or real-glass lenses. Plastic lenses weigh less than glass, are splinterless, and are less prone to dewing. However, they scratch more easily, though some new plastic lenses that are hardened are less prone to scratches. Plastic lenses are thicker at higher powers whereas regular glass is generally thinner than plastic at higher powers.

People who are farsighted will also end up needing reading glasses. They will then need either two different pair of glasses-one pair for distance and one pair for reading. Or they can get one pair of glasses with lenses that correct for both near vision and presbyopia. There are two options for a combined lens: Bifocals and multipower. You should always go for multipower. In bifocals there is a rectangular area in the lenses that is used for reading. In bifocals the reading area is very visible and reveals to others that the wearer needs reading glasses. In multipower lenses the reading area is invisible. These lenses look just like regular glasses and will not reveal that the wearer needs reading glasses.

If you are nearsighted thick lenses will make your eyes smaller. If you are farsighted thick lenses will make your eyes and everything under the lenses enlarged. This will include wrinkles. In both cases the preferred frame should not be larger than necessary.

Always make sure that you get anti-reflective coating on the lenses. This will ensure that both you and the frame look the best.

    Before I answer I slohud let you know that I've worked in the optical field for the last 8 years as an optical manager.I had the surgery myself about 2 years ago, and have had nothing but GREAT results. I have also seen some people who have had less than positive results, but never seen any negative results. Please remember that Lasik surgery is designed to REDUCE your dependance on glasses, not eliminate them. Yet, in most cases it does eliminate glasses. Especially someone who is young and in good health. One last thing, make sure you get with an optometrist who is affiliated with a good lasik center, such as TLC. DO NOT go looking for the surgery on your own, as you will almost guarantee poor results that way.
