  • material and workmanship. Today, spectacle lenses are manufactured from plastic, characterized by low weight, shatter resistance, reduced thickness, to receive a variety of shades. They are made from traditional glass. The strength of glass lenses have higher (except impact), they can do more flat;
  • antirefleksnoe coating improves optical properties, enabling to increase the transparency of the points by 8-10 per cent. These glasses allow a better view while driving, more comfortable work at the computer.

How to choose a frame? Attention is drawn to the nose pads, which should be soft, movable, do not induce fatigue. Temples should not exert strong pressure on the area behind the ear and whiskey.

Issued spectacle lenses and polycarbonate, which are lighter, more resistant to shocks. These glasses are ideal for children, athletes, where safety comes first.

Mineral spectacle lenses made from conventional colorless or colored glass. Such lenses are durable, have excellent characteristics, but poorly withstand shocks, although in recent years have been increasingly produces special tempered glass.

By the action of the optical glasses can be divided into:

  • afocal having no optical power. Such lenses used for sunglasses. They are divided on the prism, not prismatic, izeykonicheskie lens;
  • astigmatic which have one toric surface and one spherical;
  • stigmatic lens with the same refractive index in each meridian section.

The position of the focus eyeglass lenses are divided into positive, which are used for hyperopia, and negative, that are prescribed when myopia.

Eyeglass and distinguished by the number of optical zones:

  • multifocal used to improve the clarity of vision of the surroundings (it advanced to correct presbyopia, chetyrehfokalnye with a step change in refraction, trifocals, bifocal, varifocal with smoothly changing transitions transfocal);
  • monofocal one optical zone.

Refractive index of the lens is divided into:

  • supervysokoprelomlyayuschie with an index of 1, 74;
  • vysokoprelomlyayuschie, 1, 59;
  • with an average value of 1, 52-1, 59;
  • traditional, 1, 5-1, 52.

Depending on the coating, all spectacle lenses can be divided into:

  • AR with several layers of inorganic compounds. They reduce light reflection, increasing light transmission;
  • with a mirror coating, which is created on the basis of metal oxides, which have a refractive index of from 10 to 50 percent. There may be a different color: yellow, green, blue, pink;
  • multifunctional. They have a stain-resistant, antireflective properties;
  • reinforcing. Are resistant to scratches, however, often have a special layer on the surface;
  • Water and dirt-repellent lens.

There are also photochromic, colored and transparent, with spectral filters, polarization, with protection against UV, from chemical and mechanical influences and other ophthalmic lenses.

The oval face is considered ideal, as its smooth and beautiful proportions. Points are easy to pick up, suitable rectangular, oval, square frames, aviators and droplets. The very frame may be thin or solid, have a variety of decorative items or not.

The triangular face is called "heart", it is characterized by a narrow chin and broad forehead. Here you can pick up points with a light oval rim or rims and a half, even without them. Suitable and rectangular glasses, but with rounded edges, the width of which must be less than the height of the forehead.

Too broad bottom of the best to take the rectangular frame, visually expand a person who is too narrowed in temples. The width of the frame should be at the same time equal to the width of the jaw, which will balance the proportions.

When the rectangular shape of the face, which has a high forehead, a square, a little massive chin, are ideal frame "cat's eye", and large oval frames, aviators. Rectangular, square glasses better not to take, because the face is too large, asymmetrical.

For owners of a round face, which is characterized by a round chin, a low forehead, full cheeks are perfect sunglasses square and rectangular shape, big and large. Round glasses are not suitable, since they only emphasize the shape of the face to make it even rounder, and this attention should, on the contrary, divert.
