Millions of people over the globe suffer from eye problems, and most of them have nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. With the help of corrective glasses, however, they can improve significantly their vision and live a normal life like the others. These problems are not new and people know them for ages. Since the invention of the first corrective glasses, they have been improved to the point where they become very different from the original. Nowadays there are numberless types of corrective glasses, different lenses depending on the particular problem they are designed to solve and the desire of the user.
In modern times, a huge percentage of the people wear glasses (the Danish term is briller). Every fourth person on the planet has problem with the vision and most of them prefer to wear glasses rather than contact lenses or to undertake a laser operation. Wearing glasses, however, has its minuses. They are not so comfortable, there is a need of constant cleaning and when the temperature rapidly changes, let’s say you enter in a warm room in the winter, the glasses condense and it is almost impossible to see through them until their temperature normalizes. On the other hand, compared to the contact lenses, glasses have the advantage of being completely safe, because the lenses hide risks of worsening the current condition and contribute to some eye diseases.
Due to their fragility, corrective glasses have to be used with care. The price of the glasses varies greatly and if you prefer to wear expensive glasses, which by the way are better, you have to take care of them in order to avoid giving large sums for new ones. A must is the protective case or bag for glasses. It prevents damages of any kind, which may be done and is quite convenient. If you store the glasses in special case, there is no need to worry whether someone is going to sit on them or your pet will like them as a toy. Carrying is also eased, as the case can be put into a bag and there is no chance that the glasses may be damaged.
A great disadvantage of the glasses is that they have to be constantly cleaned. Some people do it rarely, but in fact, it is really important for the lenses to be clean for two purposes. The first is sweat and skin tissue, even in minor quantities. They contribute to the erosion of the lenses and sooner or later they will be devastated if measures are not taken. The second purpose is to avoid the worsening of the problem. Every particle on the lenses is actually a barrier for the eye. It cannot focus properly and with time, the muscle of the iris can be damaged. A soft tissue can solve the problem. It has to be clean and with you all the time for you to maintain the lenses of the glasses properly.
