I have been wearing eyeglasses since I was 8. I have a hate/love relationship with my eye problem. Sometimes I am OK with it but most of the times I do not like it. Who likes a problem anyway? My always concern is swimming, ang hirap mga bes, specially with my eye grade (which is super duper laboooo). I end up swimming with my eyeglasses, wala naman nagsabi na bawal di ba?
But my most favorite part of wearing eyeglasses is buying a new one (minus the bill part hehe). It’s a relief knowing that my eye condition is not worsening. And I got to choose a stylish frame, lalo na if I am buying at Quiapo. Eyeglasses frames there are super duper cheap. The lens are too! But it is only last year that I got to learn about the different lenses.
Dati, dalawa lang ang alam ko, Multicoated and ordinary lense. I usually get the multicoated because it is thinner. Ganyan lang palagi when I go to optical shops. Lagi lang tanong nila, “Ma’am multicoated or ordinary lens.” I wish they told me more about the different lenses provided by Essilor.
Buti na lang medyo attentive ako sa mga events invite. From there, I have learned about Essilor, got curious and now all our family’s using their lenses. NO GOING BACK TO ORDINARY LENSES.
So ayun na nga, ang dami palang lenses ng Essilor. They have lenses specific to the age of users. Different lenses din for protections. You can actually learn more about Essilor brands of lenses at their website. Our favorite kind of lens is the one that has protection from blue light. That’s the light emitted by your gadgets. It’s dangerous because our eyes are not effective in blocking blue eyes.
Ask your optha about blue light protection pag magpapagawa kayo ng eyeglasses. Three of my boys are wearing eyeglasses and all their lenses are with blue light protection from Essilor.
