I would like to suggest you,to use glasses that are made up of AR coating to virtually eliminate reflections from the front and back surfaces of your eyeglass lenses. Few sunglasses stores like EL sunglasses ( Products Archive EL Sunglasses ) have made up with cheap polarised sunglasses which enables to reduce glare while reflection emits.

SOURCE: Can you put prescription lenses into sunglasses

It may not be possible to fit the thicker prescription lenses into the thinner Oakley frames and have them stay there reliably. You will have to ask.

Having said that, prescription sunglass lenses are quite commonly made as you know, and you can also get the phototropic type that darken when outdoors (although that type will not darken down inside a car).

Do you need to have a proper eye test to find out what number reading glasses you need?


- No - reading glasses are literally to help correct problems with reading that come with age. It's a separate issue to near and far sightedness. You can just try on pairs of reading glasses in the shop and try reading until you find the correct number for you.

- As they are not proper prescription glasses they should be a lot cheaper than real glasses.

I do a lot of nighttime driving and sometimes I feel like my eyes get very sore and it can become hard to see. Any tips?


Minimize the glare of car headlights by focusing on the bottom right hand corner of the road. Also you should flick your eyes occasionally from the road to the dashboard to try and minimize the risk of 'road hypnosis' which can be very dangerous and lead to accidents.

Also if you wear glasses, you can get an anti reflective coating on your lenses to also help minimize the glare.

There are couple of materials in which sunglassess are made of. 1. Glass Lenses
- it's has number of advantages: -Exceptional scratch resistance (don't need scratch resistant coating).
-Excellent optical clarity.
-Anti-reflective (AR) coating adheres to glass very well.Disadvantages are:-At least twice the weight of plastic or polycarbonate lenses.
-About 25 to 40 percent thicker than polycarbonate and high index plastic lenses.
-Can shatter or chip easier than lenses made of other materials.
-Require a special coating to provide 100% UV protection Second type is Plastic Lenses:Advantages:

Plastic lenses accept tints easily.
More shatter - resistant than glass lenses.


Disadvantages:

Thin - About 20 to 25 percent thinner than plastic or glass lenses.
Lightweight - About 20 percent lighter than plastic lenses.
Blocks 100 percent UV rays without needing a special coating.
Disadvantages:
Requires scratch-resistant coating for durability.
Peripheral vision may be slightly less clear in strong prescription powers.

Why is it important to purchase special sunglasses for ski?


Whether the sun is out or not, a good pair of glasses is crucial. They will help protect your eyes from UV rays and the glare of the sun on the snow - which can cause snow blindness. Think about protecting the whole of your eye from potentially harmful rays - choose 'wrap-arounds' or glasses with protective side-panels.
You should check that the glasses are well suited to the contours of your face - there is nothing worse than the feeling of the frames gradually sliding down your nose as you are cruising/racing along. If you are a champion bumps skier, jump specialist or just extremely accident prone then it may be an idea in invest in a pair of glasses that attach themselves securely to your head - either by wrapping around your ears or with a band around the back of your head. You should never skimp on glasses - you only have one pair of eyes.

Can you put prescription lenses into sunglasses frames? I have to get my eyes checked in about two weeks and I've gotten the use out of my current pair of glasses so I'm pushing to get new glasses. My...


Yes it is possible.. Oakley makes RX lenses specifically for some of the frames. the previous poster makes some invalid points in terms of what you are talking about. Oakley makes many more frames than just "sporty" frames that fit tight to your head. Oakley glasses are held onto your head by the shape AND by the hydrophilic rubber pieces (called Unobatnium) in glasses that are less wrapped. You mentioned that these looked like Rx Frames / regular glasses frames. Please note, Oakley makes RX frames, as well.

If you go to Oakley's website and look under Rx Sunglasses, you'll see which can be made with prescription lenses, AND ones that you can have an Optometrist cut regular lenses to fit.

However, please note, many Opticians, have lab do their cutting work and some labs will NOT cut for an Oakley frame. If your eye doc allows you to take him a frame, then he should be able to have it cut. It depends on the lab. It may be easier to find a Optometrist with his won lab on site. Those are places that will custom cut.
Of course, if you, as the previous poster stated, do go with a very sunsglasses / sport model, you'll need to stick with the Oakley specific sport sunglasses lens as the lense curvature may be hard to match.

I want to reduce the amount of glare on my screen but i cannot and im struggling with the glare


Buy a anti-glare privacy screen. (Privacy monitor filter)

It's the best way. They should be available at any computer store.
It is thin like a plastic cover that you place on your screen.

Scanning 35mm negs on my Epson Stylus PHOTO RX620


Try using a slightly off-white background sheet behind the negative (glass-negative-sheet-scanner lid) first, or a "frame" around the negative that is anything but white... some scanners have an auto-detect feature that may be skewed for one reason or another.

Another trick, from a photographer friend, is to take saran wrap or another transparent but non-reflective material and place as a filter between the negative and glass, thus reducing glare. The sharpness may be lessened, but the glare is also lessened...

Hope this helps!

Thick plastic film covering glass screen got deeply scratched while moving


Hi there!
I would simply replace the plastic sheeting. Will certainly be cheaper than replacing a tube. Glass tvs don't normally come with this plastic so leave it off if you can remove it. There is a type of spray on the market for this purpose, just don't know if available in your country. Please note: It is dangerous to use a tv which had been scratched beyond 1.5mm, The glass may become unstable and implode if bumped by accident. Good Luck,JUS004
