Read the article below to know more about beneficiary vision care technology.



Why is it necessary to switch to better lens technology?

UV radiation and high-energy visible light (HEV light) can potentially damage the sensitive parts of the eyes (such as the retina, cornea, etc.). Regular eye lens materials provide only a few features which become eventually become ineffective after some time. Investing in vision care solutions provides vision clarity for a longer duration and is also a safe and sensible choice for you.

The factors that make regular lens material a poor alternative for vision care are:

1. Lens-quality degradation:

As time passes, ordinary lenses lose their protective coatings. It also changes its color and gets a yellowish tint. It tampers with vision health safety.

2. Low comfort:

Generally, lens materials are not scratch resistant. It causes severe discomfort in the eyes in forming a clear image. Such prolonged strain in the eyes often leads to problems like cataracts.

3. Unable to shield eyes against radiations:

The UV and HEV radiation directly impact the retina. Ordinary lenses usually do not provide protection against severe issues. Hence, it is critical to use effective lens technology that shields the eyes from such threats.

4. Unsuitable for specific vision problems:

Cataracts, photokeratitis, cancer, etc., are a few eye problems that are caused due to unprotected exposure to the sun. These problems can be avoided with proper vision care and precautions. Where regular lenses fail to prevent such issues, specialized lens materials give unparalleled protection to the eyes.


5. Unable to withhold atmospheric changes:

Sunlight is not the only factor that poses a threat to the eyes. When you step outdoors, even in cloudy weather, microscopic substances and particles come in direct contact with the eyes. In such cases, specialized lens technology provides better protection to the eyes.
