Here's everything you need to know about how glasses are built and what factors affect their durability.
You don’t have to be a scientist to understand that the materials used on glasses, like plastic or metal frames, will impact how long they last. If you drop your glasses and they hit the ground with a metal frame, there is a chance that they could break.
The way you use your glasses also plays a role in their lifespan. If you are constantly taking them off and putting them back on because of headaches or eye strain, it won't be long before they start looking worn out and beat up.
How you clean your glasses is another factor that can influence how long they last. For example, if you use harsh chemicals like alcohol or ammonia to clean them too often then this could cause damage over time because these types of cleaners can strip away the coating on lenses which protects them from scratches and other hazards like smudging when using lotion around the eyes daily (which most people do).
If possible, try not exposing them to too much sunlight since ultraviolet rays can weaken plastic parts such as hinges while also causing discoloration over time due to exposure via prolonged exposure during use outdoors without protection; this may also occur indoors if windows aren't covered properly!
Safety glasses are designed to protect your eyes from flying debris and dust. They're not made of glass, but polycarbonate or plastic lenses. They should be replaced every 1-2 years depending on how often you use them, as well as other factors like ultraviolet (UV) radiation and heat.
Blue light glasses are a type of eyewear that can help protect your eyes from harmful rays. Blue light is a reflection of sunlight, which is made up of shorter wavelengths, and it has been shown to cause damage to the retina over time. This form of light is especially dangerous at night because it can disrupt your circadian rhythm (your body's natural clock) and make you feel more tired than usual.
Blue light glasses block this wavelength by filtering out the most visible light below 500 nanometers in length. The best types for this purpose have lenses with a yellow-tinted coating that blocks out blue wavelengths while allowing others through safely—the trade-off being that they reduce contrast levels slightly but still provide clear vision without color distortion.
Here are the best ways to care for your glasses:
Sunglasses are a type of eyewear that is designed to protect the eyes from the sun. They are available in a wide range of designs, sizes, and colors.
Sunglasses can be made from different materials, including plastic, polycarbonate, and glass. However, if you have an allergy or sensitivity to any material used in your sunglasses it may be safer for you to wear contact lenses instead of sunglasses.
There are many factors that affect the durability of your glasses. For example, you should be aware that the type of lenses has a huge impact on how long your glasses will last:
With all the information above, you should be able to make an informed decision about how long your glasses will last. We hope that this article has given you some insight into the different factors that influence the lifespan of your glasses and what you can do about them.
Age can’t and shouldn’t stop you from feeling confident every day.
The whole idea behind Vicci™ Eyewear is providing you with beautiful and quality eyewear that you’d be proud to wear at all times.
Vicci™ Eyewear offers a wide selection of eyewear so you can easily choose the perfect pair of glasses that complements your features and easily matches your makeup to complete your look.
Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.
David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.
David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.
He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.
His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.
David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.
And that’s when it hit him!
