What are non-prescription glasses?
Non-prescription glasses, also known as zero-powered glasses, have lenses with no vision correction (Plano lenses). These glasses can have clear or tinted lenses with no power. People wear non-prescription glasses for various reasons, such as fashion, or to reduce glare from screens. They come in various shapes, sizes, and designs, making them a popular choice for fashion enthusiasts.
Can non-prescription glasses harm your vision?
Non-prescription glasses do not alter your vision in any way. They have zero power, which means they neither enhance nor diminish your eyesight. They cause no physical harm to your eyes either. Non-prescription glasses are crafted with top-notch materials, just like prescription glasses, ensuring both quality and comfort. When worn correctly, they are completely safe for your eyes and won't cause any harm . Regular eye tests are crucial for maintaining good eye health and can help you decide whether you need non-prescription glasses or prescription ones. If prescribed, wearing prescription glasses helps correct refractive errors like near-sightedness or farsightedness, improving overall quality of life by enhancing clarity and reducing eye strain.
