The customized graduated lens suitable for your ametropia 

The right graduated lens suitable for your ametropy can effectively correct eye abnormalities, where the focus is not positioned correctly on the retina, causing hypermetropia, presbyopia or myopia. Let us discover together these visual defects.

Short-sightedness

Myopia, a diffuse visual defect, results in blurred vision at a distance but sharp up close. Thanks to modern technologies, even moderate or high forms of myopia can be corrected with thin lenses. However, its prevalence is increasing: in 2000 it affected 22.9% of the world population and is expected to reach 50% by 2050. The main causes of myopia are multifactorial. In most cases, it is caused by an eye that is too long, causing the image to form in front of the retina, and causing blurring in distant vision. Genetic factors play a significant role, as do lifestyle and environment. Increasing exposure to close-up views, such as prolonged use of screens, contributes to the phenomenon of "student myopia". To slow myopia, increasing exposure to external light can be helpful, but there is no certainty that it will stop its progression. The age of onset affects the rate of progression: the sooner it appears, the faster its evolution will be. Myopia can be complicated by presbyopia, which is common in adulthood. Progressive lenses are ideal for correcting both visual problems, allowing clear vision at all distances without the need to change glasses frequently. Myopia can be detected in children through symptoms such as difficulty reading the board, poor performance in sports or excessive proximity during activities. Limiting time spent in front of screens can reduce the risk of developing myopia. When choosing glasses for myopia, it is important to consider the degree of correction and the appropriate frame.

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a common visual defect that can manifest itself in various ways, often escaping our awareness. Recognizing it can be complicated, but some signs should warn us. If you notice distorted images on the sides or a confusion of nearby characters, you may be suffering from astigmatism. This visual flaw comes with blurry contours of objects both close and far, making it difficult to perceive low-contrast details and causing confusion about similar letters and numbers. The cause of astigmatism often lies in a deformation or irregularity of the cornea, the transparent outer part of the eye. This deformation prevents the light rays from converging at a single point on the retina, generating blurry images. While astigmatism is commonly present since childhood and tends to remain stable over time, it can also be caused by corneal lesions or pathologies such as keratoconus. It can also occur along with other visual defects such as myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia. Fortunately, glasses for astigmatismocon corrective lenses can help correct astigmatism, offering a clearer and sharper vision. If you experience symptoms such as visual fatigue, light sensitivity, or frequent headaches, consult an ophthalmologist for an accurate assessment and proper correction of your visual defect.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is a natural change of vision that affects most people after the age of 40. It is characterized by a loss of elasticity of the lens, making it difficult to see closely. Reading a book or consulting your smartphone becomes a challenge, often accompanied by stretching your arms or approaching the light to improve the visibility of the characters. Recognizing early signs of presbyopia is crucial. If you notice difficulties in close vision, consult your ophthalmologist for a precise assessment. Presbyopia is indicated on prescription glasses with the word "Add" followed by a number ranging from +0.25 to +3.50 diopters. This value increases with age, usually stabilizing around 60 years. Contrary to what one might think, other pre-existing visual defects such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism do not affect the onset of presbyopia. To correct presbyopia, there are several options, but presbyopia glasses with progressive lenses are the perfect choice. These lenses allow clear vision at all distances, eliminating the need to change glasses for different tasks.

Hyperopia

Hyperopia, a common visual defect, can cause eye strain and require correction with glasses or lenses. Characterized by a too-short eyeball, the image forms behind the retina rather than on it, causing near-vision blurring. This defect can be congenital in children, who often spontaneously exceed it by 10 years. However, if severe, it can cause visual fatigue and require early correction. Signs of hyperopia may vary, with symptoms such as near-blurred vision, headache, and eye fatigue. Because hyperopia requires more effort than normal vision, it can cause discomfort, especially with prolonged use of close vision. Hyperopia may also emerge in adulthood, especially after age 40 when presbyopia develops. This is due to the reduced flexibility of the lens, making the visual defect more evident. Correction with glasses for hyperopia becomes essential for visual comfort. Determining the degree of hyperopia requires an ophthalmic prescription that indicates the power of the necessary lenses. Hyperopia can be classified as weak, moderate or strong, depending on the dioptric value. In addition, you can be hypermetropic and have other visual defects such as astigmatism or presbyopia, but fortunately, all can be corrected.

The importance of graduated glasses

Why use graduated glasses? The importance of graduated eyeglasses is crucial to correct vision and prevent any eye problems. In some cases, the use of graduated frames can help slow down the deterioration of vision, especially if vision problems are not corrected. Regular eye checks are an important step, as prescription glasses may vary over time due to several factors, including age, lifestyle and eye health. Wearing complete eyeglasses can greatly improve the quality of vision. This is especially important for daily tasks such as driving, reading, using the computer and carrying out work tasks. Our connected lifestyle and extended use of digital devices can hurt our vision. We often keep the devices very close to the eyes and adopt rigid postures, causing eye strain and muscle tension. To prevent these problems, it is advisable to take frequent breaks while using the devices and use glasses with blue light filters on the screens of devices to reduce exposure to harmful light. In addition, in recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of children requiring graduated lenses with blue light filters, mainly due to the frequent use of digital devices such as tablets and smartphones. Using appropriate graduated glasses, regularly undergoing vision checks and taking precautions when using digital devices are key steps to preserve the health of our eyes and ensure optimal vision in the long term.
