Have you invested in protective eyewear to keep your eyes safe? The types of eyewear you have will depend on your activities as well as your visual needs. Computer glasses are used to protect the eyes from damaging blue-light rays. Sunglasses protect the eyes from harmful UV rays that can damage your vision and cause cancer. There is even special eyewear for playing sports. When it comes to the eyes, one thing is clear: they must be protected.
What are progressive lenses and how are they different than normal lenses? Eyes change throughout your life, gradually losing the ability to focus on objects. That’s even if you’ve experienced perfect vision for many years. The most noticeable time period for changes to occur is around age 40. The lenses of the eyes begin to become stiffer and the muscles that control them change. This will cause a gradual yet noticeable change in your ability to focus on objects up close.
