Types of Nearsighted Glasses

 Nearsightedness or also known as Myopia affects over 70 million Americans and the number is increasing. A lot of people put a lot of near point stress on their eyes that one out for four has lost his or her long distance vision already. Nonetheless, if you are nearsighted, you can cure it by wearing nearsighted glasses or do eye exercises.

            When it comes to wearing nearsighted glasses, the most popular option is the single-vision. These glasses could typically offer acceptable correction levels for far and near vision. For older adults who suffer from ‘old eyes’ or Presbyopia, the ability to focus on objects that are near is compromised as well. These people may need bifocal lenses on their glasses to do close work such as needlework or crafts or to read. Still, others may require multifocal or trifocal lenses to see clearly through different distance ranges.

            Although there are some people who get by just fine without having to wear eyeglasses most of the time, they could however be required by law to wear corrective lenses when driving. They frequently keep ‘driving glasses’ with low-strength single-vision in their car. For nearsighted persons who are sensitive to sunlight, there are prescription glasses that let them see clearly even during sunny and bright days.
