The trend of big frame glasses has been popular for a long time, and many people believe that big frame glasses make their faces appear smaller. However, this perception is problematic. Do you know that the bigger the glasses, the heavy burden it may worsen your nearsightedness?
We often see actors or superstar wearing big frame glasses or oversized sunglasses at airports or on the streets, but not everyone is suitable for wearing big frame glasses, especially those with a small interpupillary distance and high myopia!
When fitting glasses, there are two important parameters: refractive power and pupillary distance. When choosing big frame glasses, it is especially important to consider the pupillary distance. The distance between the centers of the two lenses should match the pupillary distance. Otherwise, even if the prescription is correct, wearing glasses may feel uncomfortable and affect vision.
Although big frame glasses can enhance your appearance, they can also have some effects on the eyes due to the large lenses. Prolonged wearing of big frame glasses can cause discomfort symptoms. The weight of big frame glasses can compress the nerves between the bridge of the nose and the eye sockets, leading to eye fatigue or numbness between the nose bridge. In addition, people wearing big frame glasses may experience the glasses easily falling off when looking down or shaking their heads with force.
Big frame glasses often have problems with pupillary distance. The large lenses of big frame glasses make it difficult for the optical center of the lenses to align with the individual's pupil distance. The large frames often cause the optical centers of the lenses to be further away from the pupil distance. As a result, symptoms such as decreased vision, strabismus, and dizziness may occur, and the longer you wear them, the higher your degree of nearsightedness may become.
Continuous wearing of big frame glasses can cause a decline in vision. The prescription in different areas of the lenses is not the same. Generally, the prescription at the center of the lenses should be slightly lower than the prescription at the periphery. Our pupils focus based on the center of the lenses. If you frequently wear big frame glasses, the weight of the frames can cause them to slide down, making it impossible for the pupils to align with the center of the lenses, resulting in visual impairments and a continuous decline in vision.
Which do you choose, the appearance of your eyes or the appearance of your face?
Here are some characteristics of high-quality frames:
Lightweight frames are preferable as they can reduce pressure on the nose, ensuring comfort.
Frames that are not easily deformed are important. Deformable frames not only affect their lifespan but also the corrective effect on vision.
Low-quality frames are prone to detachment and color fading, directly affecting the lifespan of the frames. So, it is best to choose high-quality frames.
Due to different facial features, such as a chubby or slim face, a high or low nose bridge, or asymmetry between the left and right ears and cheeks, improper wearing can occur. Therefore, sometimes an eyeglass technician needs to customize the frames based on various optical parameters.
At the same time, doctors and experts have reported that those with a degree below 500 degrees can choose a wide range of frame shapes and sizes; those with a degree of 500-800 degrees should try to choose a full-frame or half-frame frame with a smaller frame width ; If the degree is above 800 degrees, choose a small full-frame frame!
what happened! Beauty is about to stand aside. It seems that the only way we can use large frames is to control the degree of myopia.
