    BOLD GLASSES FOR ZOOM CALLS

     

    For most of us, the words Zoom, Meets or Teams have become an all too familiar addition to our daily vocabulary. For most of us are working from home,  where we spend most of our time - hanging out on video calls with dodgy wi-fi and struggling to hear what everyone is saying.  As working from home is now the new normal for many of us, so is loungewear, messy buns and no makeup, but I think we can agree, we are all getting sick of looking the same every day. 

     

    Here are a few tips on how to look like you have made an effort while working from home:

  7. What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?
    What Are Bifocal Glasses And Are They Worth Getting?

    Bifocal glasses have lenses which are split into two parts, accommodating two different prescriptions in one lens. The upper portion of the lens is for distance vision. The lower portion of the lens has a different prescription, usually for near vision.

    Why are bifocal glasses worth getting?

    Bifocal glasses are worth getting if you have two different prescriptions because they can accommodate both in one lens so that you can easily switch between the two.

    For example, wearers can use the distance portion of the lens the majority of the time, then quickly switch by looking through the bottom part of their lens for near-sighted activities, like looking at their phone or a computer screen.

    This is more convenient than having to switch between two different glasses constantly.

    How to Measure Pupil Distance 

    Your pupil distance is an essential measurement for ordering prescription glasses; without it, your lenses won’t be accurate. This measurement is used to accurately determine the area of your lens that you look through to ensure that you have clear vision.

    Your pupil distance, or PD, is the distance between the centre of your pupils (the black circles in the centre of your eye) and is always measured in millimetres for accuracy. 

    Typically, your optician will do this measurement. However, we have an excellent
