Over 60% of Americans rely on glasses to correct their vision problems, either exclusively or alongside contact lenses. Glasses are a reliable option for people who suffer from common sight impairments like nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, for example.
Benefits of Glasses
Though contact lenses have their appeal, many people prefer glasses for vision correction. Indeed, eyeglasses do have some benefits over contacts. Glasses are less intrusive as they do not have to be inserted into the eyes as contacts do. There is also less upkeep as they don’t have to be cleaned with special solutions, and they can easily be removed and put back on at any time.
Types of Eyeglasses
Generally speaking, there are two basic categories of eyeglasses: single vision glasses and multifocal glasses. Most eyeglass wearers have single vision glasses. Multifocal glasses come in different varieties like bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses. These types of glasses are usually prescribed for patients over the age of 40 who are developing presbyopia.
