Choosing Eyeglass Lenses

Next Optical has a wide range of almost every kind of glasses available today, but with so much to choose from, one might usually get confused. Here are some tips you might like to go through before picking up the eyeglass lenses you need.

Lens designs

The designs of lenses vary from frame to frame and this choice is almost always up to you. There are single vision lenses that help with near or farsightedness. Multifocal lenses are available that help in both. People who require multifocal lenses usually go in for progressive lenses in which the optical power is spread across uniformly. They look better than your usual lenses as they don’t have a noticeable line going across the middle. For people suffering from double vision, a distinct prism is used in the lenses.

Materials and coatings

The material of the lenses is also an important factor. Whether you want the appearance to be appealing or you are person who looks only at function, Next Optical provides you with many options.

Thin lenses make the glasses look good, but sometimes do not provide complete function. You might want these to eliminate thick-glass jokes and also because the thin lenses don’t put much pressure on your nose. It you want just function from your lenses, these possibilities won’t be available. There is also the safety issue that many face during work. Polycarbonate is the material used in specific lenses designed for sports or kids. It is highly impact-resistant.

Photochromic lenses are used by those who don’t want to carry two pairs. These lenses darken as you step out into the sun.

Anti-reflective and ultraviolet coatings are used on the lenses to add a bit more function, but remember that if you choose the latter, you risk developing a cataract.
