POINTS TO CONSIDER WHILE BUYING...

SIZE OF FRAMES:

Simple steps to be followed to know the size of frame you need using credit or debit card:

  • The width of credit card is equal to horizontal width of medium size frame’s lens.



  • Hold the credit card on your face such that one end of that credit card lies exactly at the center of your nose.
  • If your entire eye lies within the credit card's limit and some gap is remaining then you need small sized frame. If your eye fits exactly in credit card without leaving much of space, you need medium sized frame. And if your eye does not fit in the limits of credit card, you need large sized frames.

How to know the exact size of frames you presently have or like on sooeyes?

  • For knowing the specific size of any frame on sooeyes.com, select your favorite frame and visit the description section of that product where the size of frame is mentioned.
  • You can also view the size of your old frame by referring to the inner side of your old frame’s temple (side). For that refer to the figure below.

THE NEED OF BLUE RAY BLOCKING LENSES:

The screens of computer/ mobile emit blue rays. Long exposures to these screens on a regular basis cause these blue rays enter your eyes and project on the retina. These blue rays are harmful to our eyes in following manner.

  • Digital eyestrainBlue light from computer screens and digital devices can decrease contrast leading to digital eyestrain. Fatigue, dry eyes, bad lighting, or how you sit in front of the computer can cause eyestrain. Symptoms of eyestrain include sore or irritated eyes and difficulty focusing.
  • Retina DamageStudies suggest that continued exposure to blue light over time could lead to damaged retinal cells. This can cause vision problems like age-related macular degeneration.

Sooeyes Blue Rays Blocking lenses do not allow blue light to enter into your eyes. Hence, they are a must-go for maintaining healthy eye-sight.


KNOW YOUR PRESCRIPTION:

Prescription is a slip with your eye power specified given by your optometrist or ophthalmologist upon your visit. The prescription is mainly in a tabular format. For singe vision spectacles the prescription is of the following format:


 

SPH

CYL

AXIS

Right Eye (OD)

 

 

 

Left Eye (OS)

 

 

 


SPHERICAL (SPH): Spherical power implies that the correction required is ‘Spherical’ or equal in all meridians of eye. The defect could be either myopia or hyperopia. Axis is not needed to be mentioned in spherical power as the correction required is equal in all meridians of life. 


CYLINDRICAL (CYL): Cylindrical powers are generated generally by the shape of the cornea (transparent front layer of the eye). Cylindrical error is when the blurring is only along a single meridian, for e.g., in the horizontal or vertical plane. For cylindrical power, axis is always provided.


AXIS: For cylindrical powers, axis is always provided. The axis is defined with a number from 1 to 180. The number 90 corresponds to the vertical meridian of the eye, and the number 180 corresponds to the horizontal meridian. Hence, axis is the orientation of the cylindrical power.
