THE LATEST STYLES IN PRESCRIPTION EYEWEAR AND SUNGLASSES

 

 

  • Sunglasses overview

  • Blocking 99% of ultraviolet/infared rays

     

    You should always buy sunglasses with this feature. Long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight is linked to eye disease. UVB radiation is considered more dangerous to the eyes and skin than UVA radiation. Both plastic and glass lenses absorb some UV light, but UV absorption can be improved by adding chemicals to the lens material during manufacturing or by applying special lens coatings.

     

    Look for sunglasses that block 99% or 100% of all UV light. Some manufacturers’ labels say “UV absorption up to 400nm.” This is the same thing as 100% UV absorption.

     

    Infrared wavelengths are invisible and produce heat. Sunlight has low levels of infrared rays, and the eye tolerates infrared well. Some sunglass manufacturers make health claims for their products based on infrared protection, but research has not shown a close connection between eye disease and infrared rays.

THE LATEST BRANDS IN CONTACTS

 

 

  • Contact lenses overview

     

  • Types of contact lenses

     

    Many different plastics are used in the manufacture of contact lenses, but basically there are two general types of lenses: hard and soft.

     

    Include the PMMA contacts that were first developed in the 1960s

    but are rarely used today; and rigid gas-permeable, or RGP, contacts. RGP contacts combine plastics with other materials such as silicone or fluoropolymers to produce a lens that holds its shape, yet allows the free flow of oxygen through the lens to the cornea. These lenses are more “wettable,” easier to adjust to and more comfortable to wear than the old PMMA hard lenses.

     

    May be the best choice when the cornea has enough astigmatism (is shaped like an egg instead of an orange) that a soft lens will not provide sharp vision. They may also be  preferable when a person has allergies or tends to form protein deposits on his or her contacts.

     

    The choice of most contact lens wearers for their comfort as well as

    for the great number of options available in soft contacts. These options include:

     

    Removed nightly and are replaced on an individualized schedule. They should not be used as an extended wear lens.

     

    Worn overnight but are removed at least weekly for thorough cleaning and disinfection. They are being recommended less frequently, since there is a greater risk of corneal infection with any overnight wear of contact lenses.

     

    The most popular type of contacts and generally the healthiest mode of contact lens use. They are replaced on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Disposable lenses are sometimes recommended for people with allergies and for those who tend to form deposits on their lenses. Colored and toric lenses can be disposable as well.

     

    Can change the appearance of your eye color to varying degrees.

     

    Can correct astigmatism, although sometimes not as well as RGP lenses. They usually cost more than other contact lenses.
