EYEGLASSES - Information

WHAT SUNGLASSES SHOULD DO BLUE LIGHT (HEV - 400 to 500 nm) May help Cause Macular Degeneration UV400 = UVA, UVB plus UVC = 100-400 nm UVA = 320-400 nm UVB = 280-320 nm UVC = 100-280 nm Glossary of Sunglass (And EyeGlasses) Terms - BluBlocker

Computer Glasses

One goal of Computer Glasses should be to reduce/eliminate Blue Light getting to your eye's macula. A second goal should be to reduce Glare. I strongly suggest that you include Polarization in your computer glasses. Stop Frying Your Eyes - Gunnar Zip (Melanin Lens Computer Glasses) Melanin - Wikipedia Optical Absorption of Melanin Computer Glasses - "the lenses of your computer glasses should include anti-reflective coating." Computer Glasses - Dry and Fatigued - FramesDirect

Glare (Vision)

Progressive bifocal lens have not visible line on them

Progressive Lenses Replace Bifocals for ENHANCED Vision Note that Progressives come with different widths of correctedness (some types extend the progressive changes in lens magnifcation ALL the way to the outer edges of the glasses - THIS IS THE ONLY TYPE TO GET! (my opinion) Other, (stupid) vendors sell you a narrow gradudated field of vision - this will CAUSE BLURRY views in your peripheral vision - I threw mine right out the window on the drive back from the Optometrist.

My friend Daine recomends: "iHerb" You can save lots of money by shopping here! And, no, I'm not getting a cent to recommend them! Sample: I pay $50 to buy something in the store (Wild Oats); at iherb it's about $32 - now that's some savings! Plus my order arrives in two days with regular shipping - true for Southern California orders, because iherb is located in Southern California. Give it a try. I rarely recommend things, but this website is something else. The man in charge of herbs and vitamins at Wild Oats told me about it. I've been using it since February 2006 and am totally satisfied." - Diane
