The style of tinted glasses changes all the time. But they’re also great for protecting your eyes and enhancing your street style. Choosing the right tint or glasses filter can improve your vision and block some harmful light.
You’re wrong if you think tints and filters only make your glasses more expensive. You can use them to get a sharper vision, and improve your overall visual experience.
Different glasses filters and tints are ideal for different activities, whether you use digital screens a lot or drive a lot.
Anti-blue light filters are the most common filters for glasses frames. They block blue light while you’re working on a computer. Digital screens are the most common cause of eye strain because of the damaging blue light they emit.
When you stare at a screen for a while, your eyes tend to get sore and dry. The blue light is unfocused, so it creates visual noise, and your eyes have a hard time focusing.
Even though blue light is the biggest source, it’s all-natural, so it poses fewer health risks than it does benefits. The blue light coming from your devices isn’t natural, and too much of it causes eye strain, dry eyes and sleep loss.
Blue light from electronics is a small fraction of what the sun emitted, but the amount of time people spend using these gadgets means their eyes are exposed to a lot of this radiation. The blue light filter in your glasses helps block out most of this radiation before it reaches your eyes.
Blue light glasses have an advanced coating that blocks blue light and keeps your eyes comfortable no matter how long you spend on your device. Although it’s not scientifically proven, some experts believe constant exposure to blue light can damage your retina. Therefore, blue light glasses will prevent that damage as well. Blocking the UV rays is the most effective way to keep your eyes as healthy as possible and to avoid certain eye conditions.
In the course of the day, sunlight contains UV rays that can cause damage to your eyes in the same way that it does to your skin. Intense exposure to the sun’s rays can lead to a condition called photokeratitis, or sunburn of the eyelids.
In addition, long term ultraviolet exposure can also lead to cataracts and macular degeneration, which have a negative effect on your vision.
You might be wondering why it is necessary to have UV filters on your prescription glasses if you have sunglasses. However, despite the fact that the UV rays are just as intense on a cloudy day when wearing sunglasses isn’t a practical choice, it’s important to remember that they are just as intense.
The addition of UV treatment to your prescription lenses is one of the best ways to ensure that your eyes are protected against UV damage as much as possible.
There are anti-glare filters that block out the bad light and only allow the good light to interact with your eyes. By doing this, the light is filtered out of our eyes, irrespective of whether it came from a digital screen or a flat surface. By reducing the number of reflections, it improves the quality of your vision by reducing the number of reflections on the lenses.
All lens types can now benefit from this coating, whether they are bifocal, varifocal, or high-index lenses.
Aside from improving your glasses’ profile, anti-glare filters act as anti-reflective coatings as well. During bright light situations, the reflections on your lenses can prevent people from seeing your eyes, especially when you are in bright light settings. In spite of that problem, this filter solves the problem and will give your glasses a nice appearance.
The lenses of the sports glasses have this filter, especially those used for snowboarding, fishing, and skiing. Anti-scratch is one of the most important features in any pair of glasses. Basically, it is a tough coating that’s applied to the surface of lenses to make them scratch resistant and prevent them from getting damaged by scratches.
Wearing eyeglasses all the time means that you are likely to drop them every once in a while, which could even damage the lenses. As a result, you will not only ruin the look of your specs but you will also experience poor vision due to imperfections in the lens.
It is best to get an anti-scratch treatment for your glasses if you want to keep your lenses looking as good as new for a long period of time. Specs Cart’s full line of prescription and non-prescription glasses features this coating in addition to anti-glare and UV protection. Our best part is that all of these coatings come as a free or complimentary addition to all of our glasses.
