Everyone is unique, with many sides to their personality – serious, playful, sporty, and fashion conscious, to name a few. With multi-dimension lifestyles, how can we expect one pair of glasses to do it all?
Most people need at least 2 pairs of glasses – one for indoor use and one for sun protection. Everyday activities glasses should always include protection against UV rays and an anti-reflection coating to reduce glare and the harmful effects of blue light. Presbyopes should consider adding a pair of lenses designed for specific tasks, such as computer use. Blue light filtering ophthalmic lenses such as BluSelect from Centennial helps protect eyes from 400-420 nm High Energy Visible (HEV) light that also damages retina and is one of the factors which accelerates the development of Age-related Macular Degeneration, cataracts and sleeping disorders. Sources of blue light include the sun, digital screens (TVs, computers, laptops, smart phones and tablets), electronic devices, and fluorescent and LED lighting.
For daytime driving and outdoor activities, polarized lenses will eliminate all types of glare, enhance contrast to help you see clearly, and provide maximum UV protection. In addition to polarized lenses, there are lenses designed optimally for activities such as golfing, cycling, and running. Shamir’s Attitude III Sport lens has a wide and distortion-free far vision zone, a corridor for intermediate vision that ensures optimal vision of the Safety Zone (1-5 m in front of the athlete) and a near vision zone that allows clear and comfortable view of the watch or other sports gadgets. Sunglasses like Adidas have anti-fog technologies, lens change, quick-release hinge, stable and pressure-free fit, head wear compatibility, sweat blocker and a head strap option.
Transitions Drivewear lenses are Photochromic Polarized lenses which combine the Transitions Photochromic Technology and NuPolar polarization. Transitions Drivewear lenses are the first photochromic lenses to darken behind the windshield of a car.
