Why Should You Buy Reading Glasses with Aspheric Lenses?
Traditionally, reading glasses and other optical lenses have had bulgy, curved shapes that resemble the surface of a ball. With aspheric lenses, there is less curvature on the lens, which creates a flatter and thinner appearance. Whether you are nearsighted or farsighted, aspheric lenses provide an altogether slimmer profile. This helps to minimize eye distortion without compromising the effectiveness of optical quality.
With farsighted eyeglass prescriptions, the lenses have a convex curve, making the lenses thicker towards the center and thinner around the edges. The center bulges out more for stronger prescriptions. Conversely, nearsighted prescriptions have a concave curve, making the lenses thinner towards the center and thicker around the edge. When you use aspheric lenses, the curve of the surface is minimized altogether.
For individuals with strong prescriptions, they won’t have to worry about the thickness of the lenses. For example, reading glasses for women and men will have a wider variety of options when it comes to selecting frames, shapes and sizes. When you are choosing aspheric glasses, ensure that the center of the eye is lined up with the middle of the lens. This will give you the clearest vision. Aspheric lenses also tend to produce more reflections, so go with an anti-reflective coating if possible (most I Heart Eyewear reading glasses offer anti-reflective coating).
There are many benefits to aspheric lenses, and they include:
- Less bulging within the lens, which creates a cleaner look.
- The magnification of the eye is reduced, which makes the eye appear more natural for both nearsightedness and farsightedness.
- A wider variety of frame options, especially for individuals with strong prescriptions.
- Lighter in weight than traditional lens.
- Improved peripheral vision with aspheric lenses.
- More consistent magnification throughout the lens, which produces a better image quality
