The classic PantoGlasses are designed using the original shape of the optical lens from almost 100 years back in time – designed by combining six radiuses. The range of true panto consists of a variety of models, colors and materials – all with the identical shape of the lens.
See your local optician or optometrist to have your eyes and vision tested. They have many years of education and are specialized in finding the rightglasses for your eyes.
If they find any discrepancies that indicate that an ophthalmologist/eye doctor should examine your eyes, they will refer you to the specialist for further medical investigation.
When the refraction is determined by the optician and you have paid for the good job done, they can guide you through the options of frames and lenses, that will give you the clearest and most comfortable vision.
The test result is of course yours to keep if you prefer to have a copy of the prescription. The optometrist will keep a copy in their records.
Your need might be reading glasses for use at close distance, which happens to all of us, typically after the age of 45. These will give you clear vision for the reading distance or the distances you have informed the optometrist that you normally need to see clearly – typically 40 cm from your eyes.
The disadvantage of pure reading glasses is that when wearing them, everything at further distance than a meter is blurred. Progressive glasses (also called multifocal or bifocals) are advanced multifunction optical lenses that lets you see all objects clear as when you were young.
A large percentage of people are myopic (shortsighted) and benefit substantially from wearing prescription eyeglasses to see details clearly at distance.
Hyperopic (farsighted) is a description of those who need plus-lenses to see clearly without the constant stress on the eyes having to focus all the time.
Astigmatism is a common refractive error of the eyes that most often is combined with one of the above. Details can get blurred and/or you get tired or even headache after using your eyes actively.
Although the main reason for wearing glasses is to see clearly, without stress or pain from the eyes, fashion glasses are what we might look for. Although the world has seen all kinds of shapes and sizes, the rounded spectacles have always been the favorite choice of most users of glasses as well as among eyeglass designers. The classic shape of panto glasses was introduced in the 1930’s and have had a major position in the market since. Right now, they are more popular than ever.
