Choosing Between Progressive Vs Bifocals

Progressive lenses are a relatively new concept within the world of ophthalmic lenses. Now, more than ever, people are looking for aesthetically better lenses that do not make the wearer appear aged. Bifocal lenses have been the go to eyeglass lenses for people who need near as well as far vision correction. The bifocal lens wearers feel that their lenses with a start dividing line which distinguishes the part for farsighted power and nearsighted power make them feel old.

The higher pricing of progressive lenses make people choose bifocals for their needs but there are certain features which help progressive lenses offer better vision correction than bifocals.

The progressive lenses are made without lines, which means, wearing a progressive lens will not make you look old. The lenses won’t have a distinct line or special region for the near power. Many people use two glasses individually to help them look younger than they are. Aesthetically, bifocal lenses are surely a big no-no. The need for reading glasses immediately provides an image of old age.

The progressive lenses don’t have lines to distinguish the near section and the other sections. The lenses are created strategically to fit the vision of a person. The lower section has the power for reading and doing near work. The intermediate section offers clear vision at arm’s length and the top section provides clean far vision.

The progressive lenses reduce the need to carry another pair of glasses to suit the needs of reading glasses. While the sectors are invisible, the progressive lenses offer clear vision for the wearer. All you need to do is look downwards through the bottom section of the lens for clear near vision and when you’re looking at objects far away, gaze through the top section of the lens. This way it becomes easier to see with progressive lenses and afterwards it turns into a daily habit.

The progressive lenses do take time to get adjusted to, for a first time wearer; it can become a hassle to make the habit to gaze at the centre of the lens for reading at arm’s length and looking upwards for far vision. It does take a bit of practice but ultimately progressive lenses provide you a great vision, quite similar to the natural vision.

Bifocal lenses are a way more affordable option but many a times, the visual clarity offered by the progressive lenses are far better. Mostly today, GKB Opticals offers great quality progressive lenses that fit into the latest stylish eyeframes. Most branded eyewear frames can be fitted with the latest progressive lenses that are thinner and more aesthetically appealing. So, enjoying all that’s happening around you is easier with progressive lenses. Get in touch with our Optical assistants over call at 1800 419 1990 or mail us at for quick answers.

There are two types of lenses available for this procedure.

The first ones is The Verisyse Phaktic Intraocular Lens (IOL) , which is made with plastic. This lens is attached to the front of the iris. Ideal participants for the implants should be above 21 years with a stable vision and a refraction change of less than .5 diopters in six months. The ideal candidate for the IOL implantation should have a nearsightedness range from -5 diopters to -20 diopters. It is usually not foldable which means it requires a larger incision. It is also closer to the inner surface of the cornea which means it can increase the risk of corneal damage.

The second one is the Visian Implantable Collamer Lens. The concept of Implantable Lenses is made of polymer substances that are similar to collagen. These lenses are safe and effective. These lenses are made with collamer which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Unlike the IOL lenses, these lenses are implanted behind the natural lens. These lenses are implanted for patients aged 21 to 45 years and with a refraction change with less than 0.5 diopters in a year. These lenses are available in  two types, one that corrects myopia from  -3 diopters to -16 diopters and another one that reduces myopia from -16 to -20 diopters.

How Computer Glasses Work – An Overview

Computer glasses are special glasses that are designed to provide the eyes comfortable vision while working on digital devices like laptops and desktops. Advancement of technology has made computers and laptops a part of our daily life and has become inevitable at our workstations too.

Computer glasses are mostly designed to eliminate the harsh lights emitted from the backlit screens used in digital devices such as desktops, laptops, tabs and mobile phones. Every day while we are busy at working on the digital screens or mobiles we don’t feel that we’re causing discomfort for our eyes. Eyes are really active organs which constantly work to provide us the clearest vision and give our brains the information to work properly.

When we work on digital screens we force our eyes to readjust focus on what’s in front constantly. When we shift from pictures to text our eyes quickly adjust focus to keep the text in focus. Our eyes also keep adjusting the focus while we shift between the keyboard and screen. Also improper lighting can aggravate the problem.

The main problem for people working on digital devices for extended period is the aftereffects and eye problems faced while working. The most common symptoms of eye problem resulting from use of computers and digital devices are known as Computer Vision Syndrome or CVS.

The main problems experienced in CVS headaches after using digital devices, blurry vision, neck pain , eye strain, eye redness, fatigue, dry eyes, irritation in the eyes, vertigo or dizziness, double vision, polyopia and problems in refocusing the eyes.

The scary fact is that National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has shared their findings that about 90% users, who spend 3+ hours before a computer, will face some symptoms of CVS. One of the main problems faced during using a digital device is the reflections and excessive blue-violet lights. Also when we read our eyes blink fewer times, causing straining in our eyes and also causing dry eyes. So, it’s really important that one uses some kind of eye protection to reduce the eye problems associated with computer vision syndrome.

The Best way to reduce eye problems and increase your chances of keeping your eyes unaffected from the harsh lights from computer screens, computer glasses are the best solutions. Computer glasses are really useful to keep eyes more relaxed and feeling easy while you work on the computer. These glasses are specially tinted to reduce the amount of light passing to your eyes which reduces the eye fatigue. Also computer glasses come with an anti glare coating which is said to reduce the unnecessary reflections and block excessive lights, also causing eyes to feel more relaxed.

Computer glasses are formulated to block and reduce the amount of light that enters our eyes. Blue light focuses in front of the retina and forces our eyes to constantly shift it’s focus to keep the object/ text/ image in front in focus. This makes it tough for our eyes to keep up and causes fatigue. So, wearing a specially crafted computer glass eliminates the constant need to keep focusing and reduces fatigue.

So if you’re spending more than three hours in-front of a computer or digital screen opt for computer glasses and reduce your eye straining and fatigue.
