Eyeglasses use the same principle that the human lens uses and they work by augmenting the lens function. In the common situation, vision problems are divided into 3 sorts: nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

The grinding process requires accurate prescription in order to ensure that the prescription of glasses is the same as the required prescription.

After the lenses are ground, they are going to be edged to fit the frame. At this moment, glasses may be tinted or coated for UV protection by inserting them into a tinting solution. Later, opticians may either heat or treat lens with chemicals to make them flexible in order to insert the lenses into frame. At last, the prescription will be double checked by opticians so you don’t need worry about the prescription will not be accurate.

You can try to use liquid or soft-cartridge eye liner to draw your eye lines from the root of the eyelash because dark, dense and thick lines will enlarge the eyes to some extent.

3. Choose eye shadows with similar colors

Rich-colored eye shadow will influence the image of eyes, so coffee and brown should be the safest choice. During making up, you can use dark brown eye shadow at the edge of your upper eyelid, and then shift to the part under the eyebrow gradually. It is better to enlarge your eyes by using eye shadows of similar colors from dark to light.

4. Curl your eyelash after applying the mascara

Eyelash curler is a magic key for myopic beauties to enlarge their eyes. Before applying the mascara, you must curl your eyelash from its root with an eyelash curler. After applying the mascara, curl the eyelash once again. Then you can see the eyelash become curly.

How Often Should Eyeglasses be Replaced?

March 20th, 2011

Many people will not replace their eyeglasses until they are broken or cannot be used anymore. The latest large-scale investigation indicates that 29.2% of the consumers of resin lens replace eyeglasses every three or more years; while 36.4% of them will not change their eyeglasses until they are broken. In fact, if the service time of the lenses exceeds its service life our nearsightedness may be aggravated, which is, however, ignored by most of the eyeglasses wearers. In view of this, I have some suggestions for you.

The common nearsighted people should replace their eyeglasses once a year. This change includes adjusting the lenses degrees and updating the eyeglasses. As we know, the optical corrective performance of the lens will be significantly affected once there are scratches on its surface. Therefore, the eyeglasses should be maintained and inspected regularly; moreover, they should be replaced immediately so as to keep them in a good working condition.

For the youngsters whose degrees vary fast, they had better replace their eyeglasses once half a year or a year. The myopia of the teenagers is more likely to be deepened as they usually need to see near objects for a long time. The teenagers whose eyes are overused need to have an optometry once half a year. If the eyeglasses are proved to be not suitable for the diopter variation they should be replaced at once.

Here I want to emphasize that the teenagers should have a mydriatic optometry before they replace their eyeglasses. The optometry should not be conducted carelessly and the eyeglasses should be matched strictly according to the prescription made by the formal hospitals. Apart from subjective optometry, mydriatic optometry should also be applied. The regulatory function of the teenagers’ musculus ocularis is too strong that the mydriatic optometry can be used to know their real refraction and dipoters. In addition, the diopter of the lenses should be consistent with that stated on the optometry list. If the deviation exceeds the national standard, the development of myopia or presbyopia will be quickened.

It is not Easy to Operate a Retail Eyeglasses Frames Store

March 3rd, 2011

I have an eyeglasses store which was established in 2009. Although this is a retail store but all of my eyeglasses are sold at wholesale prices. That is to say, I am selling wholesale eyeglass frames. Viewing the past 2 years of sales, I have drawn a conclusion that it is difficult to operate such an eyeglasses store.

First of all, the customers often doubt the quality of my glasses as they don’t believe that the glasses can be sold at such low prices. For this reason, I always explain to them that all of my products are high-quality wholesale eyeglass frames which are directly from the manufacturers. As there are no resellers between the manufacturers and I, I can offer the glasses at such reasonable prices. Although I can convince a majority of customers to buy glasses at my store, some of them still choose to leave out and go to other glasses stores where the prices are much higher than mine for they think the high-quality things must be expensive. I have tried my best to persuade them but only find that every effort is in vain.

Moreover, the competitors always trouble me since they think I am taking the bread out of their mouths. For instance, they always come to my store for fooling about in the name of customers. They require me to take out numerous pairs of eyeglasses to try on and complain none of my glasses is suitable for them. Even some of them will say my glasses are with poor qualities. But these boring “customers” have never bought eyeglasses eventually. I am fed up with them.

In fact, apart from what I mentioned above, the industrial and commercial bureau has once come to my store for an investigation. Later I knew that I was reported by someone who was ill-disposed since he thought I was selling fakes. I felt being treated unjustly at that time. Fortunately, I was proved to be innocent finally.

Now I am hesitating whether I should continue selling the wholesale eyeglass frames or raise the prices to make others believe that I am selling authentic glasses. Hope someone can do me a favor.

An Interesting Eyeglasses Deal

February 27th, 2011

I was attracted by a piece of interesting news when I was surfing the internet today. It said there were several men peddling clairvoyant glasses to the passerby on the street, with billboards in their hands. After knowing this, a journalist intended to counsel with the peddlers about the clairvoyant glasses as a buyer.

When the journalist asked one of the peddlers why he sold such high-tech eyeglasses on the street the peddler answered, “Clairvoyant glasses are banning products, so any deals related to them can only be done by telephone instead of at the counters.” The journalist was very surprised since he had never heard such interesting eyeglasses deals. Afterwards, the peddler called the seller and agreed to examine the goods at a digital mall. The appearance of the clairvoyant glasses brought by the seller was similar to the common sunglasses. After trying it on, the journalist found that it had the same visual effect with the ordinary sunshades. The seller explained immediately, “It will not work unless you spray such special potion.”

However, when the journalist required the seller to spray the potion on the glasses to check if it really worked, he was told that he must buy the eyeglasses by paying $1,200 before trying the potion. The journalist was not satisfied and about to leave. The seller told him there was another kind of infrared clairvoyant camera which could penetrate the clothes of the women, so as to photograph their bodies surreptitiously. But the price of such cameras was more than $10,000.

The experts indicate that the wave length of the infrared light is longer than that of the visible light, therefore, by using the infrared light filtering device, the clothes will become translucent and the body will seem to be naked. But it is illegal to do this. The clairvoyant glasses sold by the peddlers are not supported by any scientific evidence; hence the so-called clairvoyant glasses are all deceptious.

Be Cautious When Doing Business

February 24th, 2011

Duqiao located in Zhejiang province is famous for producing eyeglasses, so there are numerous eyeglasses factories. At the beginning of the last year, a man who called himself “boss” placed a big order in an eyeglasses factory in Duqiao. The manufacturer was very glad and delivered his goods priced 400,000 Yuan on time.

However, when it was the time for paying, the “boss” delayed again and again. Then the eyeglasses manufacturer recognized that he was cheated. So he reported it to the police immediately. At the same time, the “boss” placed an order of more than 800,000 Yuan at another eyeglasses factory in Duqiao in the name of the “boss” of a business corporation. But he was arrested by the police finally.

Through further investigation, the police find that this man is from Hubei province and is not a boss at all. He has just been an employee in an eyeglasses factory and familiar with the eyeglasses industry. Therefore, when talking about eyeglasses he can speak out freely and convince his partner that he is indeed capable of doing this business successfully. That’s why he can cheat the partner unconsciously.

Here, I want to remind all business owners to be cautious if you are encountered with such a thing, especially about placing an order. It is important to know more information about your partner. In fact, after knowing the details, you will find that there are some suspicions. If you are careful enough, I don’t think you will be cheated so easily.
