Sunglasses – Choose the best protection

Sunglasses

How to Choose the Right Pair of Sunglasses Correctly.

The secret is choosing the right features for your eyes. When you make the investment decision in a pair of sunglasses, DO NOT forget about:

Type of activity you will use: fishing, skiing, driving, etc., but also by fashion trends.
Sunglasses are genuine tools for protection against ultraviolet radiation and have optical qualities that guarantee complete protection of the 100% UVA / UVB – in a long exposure to sunlight.
A good sunscreen is recognized by the fact that it does not reflect the light, that is, the wearer is not disturbed by the reflected images and the person in front of the glasses is not reflected in the lenses. This is not just an aesthetic circumstance, it protects your eyes and increases driving safety.
A check of the quality of the sunglasses can be done by each user on a repeating surface, such as tiles on the roof of a house.
Keep your pair of sunglasses a little distant and cover your eyes. Just look at a lens on the tile roof as you slowly move the glasses from the left to the right, then up and down. Roof tiles should remain uniform while you look at them. If they curl in any way, then the lenses do not meet one of the basic properties of the lens, namely the torsion of the lens in the frame mount.
The color of the lens: it depends on how faithful you will perceive the other colors around you and how you will see the contrasts.
– Green lenses are neutral, they reduce brilliance and do not distort color perception;
– The gray and brown lenses are also in this category;
– Yellow, golden and amber shades are suitable for skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports.
A powerful sun glasses is the one with polarizing lenses.
Polarizing lenses – they are greatly suited both in summer and winter for all people with increased sensitivity to natural light, drivers and fishermen, because they enhance contrast, eliminate glare, do not influence color perception, provide 100% UV protection and great comfort in use.

Hair colors, eyes and skin with eyeglasses

The harmony between the colors of the eyes, the skin and the hair with eyeglasses

Eyeglasses have the role of vision correction and also an accessory role. The choice of eyeglasses should be made taking into account the color of the eyes, the skin and the hair, so that the harmony is complete. For a warm skin tones, the color of the glasses should be inspired by the color of fire, namely, bronze, cream, gold, peach, orange, beige. For cold shades-skin tones, the colors must be detached from those of the metals, namely, blue, gray, rose, jade, silver, charcoal, amethyst. For mature skin, in which case the skin begins to lose pigmentation and becomes lighter, the bright shades must be avoided. In this case, the shades of brick-red, red or purple are best suited.

Glasses should be matched with both hair and eyelashes colour, and so, for example, blue or green-eyed blondes can choose rimless glasses, their temples mounted directly on their lenses, thin metal frames, or pale, pastel colors. Brown-haired ladies can opt for photochromic lenses (lenses that darkens in the sun), which can blend marvelously with brown hair and eye shades. Green-eyed people can choose warmer or browner tones for frames. Brunettes should avoid eyeglasses with too thick and black frames that roughen the features, or if they wish, they may accentuate them. Instead, they can choose gold, silver or metallic gray tones.
For the most bold and nonconformist, black frames can complement the outfit, but only if they do not create the impression that they cover the intensity of the look.

Info-guide tips
When choosing eyeglasses, it is better to take into account more what is best fitted for our face features, more than what’s fashionable in that season, especially if the glasses have to be worn permanently.

How do you SEE the New Year?

P.S. Do you remember when you were at the last optometric check?

January is the month of resolutions.

The vision can change quite a bit over the course of a year, especially for those who turn 50 and it is important to know how often you have to go out of control.

However, to help you, here are 8 signs that should prompt you to visit us:

  • Your eyes are red, dry, itchy or you see stains, “stars” or floating spots.
  • You have diabetes or a health problem that can affect your eyes. Also, if you have a family history of conditions such as diabetes or glaucoma, you may need to consult more often, especially after age 50.
  • You can’t remember when you were the last time at the office. If it’s been over a year, it’s time to schedule!
  • You have difficulty driving at night or seeing traffic signs in the dark.
  • After spending a long time in front of the computer, your eyes are red, you have a headache and / or blurred vision.
  • You get motion sick, you are dizzy or you have problems when pursuing a moving target.

Schedule a visit to the optometrist for 2020. We are waiting for you at the cabinet!

Blue light – between necessity and danger

Blue light - between necessity and danger

Modern man is the digital man, always connected, always surrounded by intelligent devices.

Approximately 93% of adults use these devices for at least two hours a day, and more than 60% of these five or more hours a day. Just a few hours before the monitor, our eyes become tired, with symptoms including a general feeling of tiredness, headaches, blurred vision, or red, irritated or dry eyes.

Research has shown that blue light with a spectrum of 400 to 520 nm and a peak at 460 nm has a particularly important impact on the regulation of melatonin in the human body, a process that influences circadian rhythm and overall well-being.

There is evidence that long-term exposure to blue-violet light wavelengths below 460 nm, with a peak at 440 nm, contributes to photochemical damage to the retina, increasing the risk of macular degeneration (a phenomenon known as “light dangerous blue “). It has also been demonstrated that exposure to blue light before bedtime can cause sleep disturbances.

The source of this type of light are intelligent devices and some economic lighting systems. Think about yourself: how often do you use smarts screens, how often do you watch the TV, or how many hours do you work in front of your monitor or laptop?

 

What is to be done?

It is especially important to have adequate filtration of blue-violet light in accordance with its intensity. Filtering blue-violet light up to a wavelength of 440 nm results in a minor impact on circadian rhythm, while providing protection against macular degeneration.

The innovative treatments for BlueProtect glasses partially reflect the blue-violet light coming from artificial sources, preventing harmful light from getting into the eyes. These treatments reduce the transmission of dangerous blue lights, but maintain a level of transmission needed to regulate the circadian rhythm.

Peripheral vision

Peripheral vision

The human eye is a work of art of nature. It includes a combination of lenses and muscles that work together to send information to the brain , then transformed into images. Peripheral vision is just a part of our ability to see, and there are a number of very interesting aspects related to this area of ​​vision.

As we always look ahead, many of us assume that central vision is the most important. This is not true. For example, central vision is not essential to the overall view. Only with the periphery we can have a complete picture. It’s amazing how dependent we are, and how much we use it without being aware of it.

The significance of peripheral vision is best emphasized during driving. This means we do not have to turn our head every time we want to see sideways, being able to look forward, but use the side mirrors at the same time without losing our focus on the road, thus avoiding accidents.

 

Did you know that?

From the scientific point of view, the peripheral vision is that area of ​​the visual field, outside the central vision area. So when we say that “we see the tail of the eye” we are referring to this segment of vision.

  • Peripheral vision is an aspect of our safety. It allows us to see objects approaching us sideways to avoid accidents, for example.
  • Peripheral vision helps us see at night.
  • In the peripheral vision area, we see everything in black and white, but this is not noticeable because the eye movement compensates for this.
  • Most people read using only central vision, which prevents them from seeing more than 50% of the text. A peripheral trained view increases the ability to read texts faster.
