Why Are Custom-made Reading Glasses Better Than Pre-fabricated Ones?

 

Off the shelves/pre-fabricated reading glasses are much cheaper and convenient to get. So you might even consider getting multiple pairs – one to be left in the car, one in the living room and one in bedroom. However, one downside about this type of glasses is that they are “one-size-fits-all” items. Most people do not have same prescription for both eyes and the pre-fabricated ones do not address this issue. So what’s so good about custom-made reading glasses?

1. Reading power is made according to your individual eye’s prescription.
A custom-made reading glasses will take into consideration of your habitual reading distance. Remember, reading glasses are supposed to blend into your lifestyle seamlessly, meaning you should feel comfortable using the reading glasses rather than changing your lifestyle to fit the glasses you buy.

2. Correct astigmatism
Astigmatism will be taken into account when making your reading glasses. In such cases where astigmatism is necessary, the reading glasses will have it.

3. Optical center
A custom-made one will have your pupil centre measured and made accordingly. Headaches and eyestrains can arise if the optical center deviates too far from the actual one.

4. A proper eye check
Lastly, sometimes vision blurs may happen due to factors such as glaucoma. Issues like this cannot be solved by simply increasing the power of the reading glasses instead it has to be addressed appropriately.

So, how long has it been since your last eye-check? We hear a very long time, well maybe it’s about time. Did we also mention that you can have really cool frames to make reading glasses?

My Family Is What Keeps Me Motivated

“Some people are driven by passion or what they see in their banks at the end of the month, but to me the satisfaction of being able to give back to my family is what keeps me motivated. That is why I chose to major in a field that would help me run my family business over my passion – photography. In economics there’s a term called a marginal benefit.  So when you apply that to a non-tangible thing, it is still related closely even though it’s less accurate as compared to ‘tangibility’. The marginal benefit if I resumed the family business would be the longevity of the business and the happiness from seeing my parents smile.”
