How to Tell if Sunglasses Are Polarized

To make sure that you're getting the product you paid for and that it's up to safety standards, you can test the lenses of your sunglasses to see if they really are polarized. The anti-glare technology in the lenses, which shields your eyes from the sun, has unique qualities that are very different from non-polarized lenses. To see whether or not your sunglasses are polarized, test the lenses by using a reflective surface, looking at a computer screen, or comparing your pair very carefully to another one.

How to Read Eyeglasses Size

Knowing how to read your eyeglasses size will help you find the best fit, especially when shopping for glasses online. Your glasses size is made up of 3 numbers that indicate measurements in millimeters, such as “45 20-135.” The first number will be the eye size, which measures the width of 1 lens. The second number indicates the bridge width, or the distance between the lenses. The third number, or the temple length, tells you how long the arms of the glasses are. To find the perfect fit, you can take your own measurements or have them taken by an optician. Use your measurements to find a comfortable and flattering pair of eyeglasses with the perfect fit!

How to Test Peripheral Vision

Your peripheral vision is one of those things you don't put much thought to until you start having trouble with it. While your central vision allows you to focus in on finer details and colors in front of you, your peripheral vision picks up on movement coming from your sides. You can test your peripheral vision at home just for fun, but you need to have an eye doctor conduct tests if you notice any problems with your peripheral vision.

How to Clean a Contact Lens Case

It’s important for the health of your eyes to keep your contact lens case clean. Your case can harbor dangerous bacteria if not sanitized properly on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. You’ll want to begin by draining and rinsing your case out with lens solution. Let your case air dry to remove any additional contaminants. Establish a regular cleaning routine and you will move through this process in just minutes.

How to Put on Contact Lenses with Long Nails

If you have acrylic or fake nails, wearing contact lenses may feel about as possible as finding a needle in a haystack. While it may not be easy at first, putting in contacts with long nails isn’t the Herculean task it seems to be. Focus on handling the lens with your fingers and fingertips. Even if it takes a few tries, you’ll be able to get the hang of it with enough patience and practice!

How to Stretch Sunglasses

Plastic sunglasses are a cool and often essential accessory. However, cheaper brands often come in predetermined sizes, which can be a problem if your head is wider. It is easy to solve this problem by heating the sunglasses and making the arms wider. You can either do this using a hairdryer or by immersing in hot water.

How to Choose Your Glasses Frames

Choosing a pair of frames is an important part of matching your eyewear to your personality and lifestyle. In the twenty first century, there are a variety of sources you can choose from. Your optometrist will be able to offer the most tailored fit, but they may not have frames you love. Other sellers may also be able to significantly undercut the price of your optometrist. Before you go shopping, however, you need to determine the shape, size, color, and material of your frames.
