Nowadays, demands on sight are constantly greater and it does not depend on whether you are a businessman, doctor, lawyer, cook, cashier, carpenter or athlete. In every profession you cannot accomplish the best results without a perfect vision and that is why it is necessary to help our eyes.
The most common tool which has a particular influence on improving vision are glasses. Besides prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses or sports eyewear which we usually use, there are even safety eyeglasses and magnifying eyeglasses.
The most commonly used prescription eyeglasses are used mainly by people who suffer from any refraction disorder such as myopia (shortsightedness), hypermetropia (longsightedness), astigmatism or presbyopia. Prescription eyeglasses help them to improve vision sharpness and decrease the effort made by the eyes but recently they have become also a fashion accessory.
Nowadays, sunglasses are used probably by all of us. Primary function of sunglasses is a protection against harmful ultra-violet radiation and dazzling. Today, both design and brand play an important role in choosing sunglasses because they provide the owner with some sort of image.
In the past sports eyewears, which were designated for a specific type of sport, were used mainly by professional athletes but with the increase of people who engage in sports increases the interest in this type of glasses. If you play golf, ride a bike or do jogging, if you like winter sports such as skiing or snowboarding you should take it into a consideration when choosing your glasses.
Another type of glasses, which is used mainly in specific professions, are safety goggles. Their function is to prevent mostly mechanical, chemical or luminous damage to the eyes. They are used for example in workshops or laboratories.
The last and a bit specific type of eyeglasses are magnifying glasses which are used for example by doctors during surgical procedures when they need to substantially enlarge the object which is being monitored.
In this article we just very briefly mentioned and described the most commonly used tool which helps our eyes to see better and which protects our sight.
