How Do Glasses Work?

Image of several objects lying on the table in the conference room Note to inspector: the image is pre-Sept 1 2009If you are nearsighted (myopia) or farsighted (hyperopia), glasses bend light so that you can see clearly. For people without vision problems, light rays enter the cornea at the front of the eye and focus on a single point on the retina, in the back of your eye.

Those who experience myopia have eyeballs that are too long, causing light to focus at the front of the retina instead of the back. When you have hyperopia, your eyeballs are too short, and light focuses behind the retina rather than on it. Bifocal lenses correct vision for those who have trouble seeing both close-up and far-away.

The lenses of your glasses focus light correctly, improving your vision.

Caring for Your Glasses

Smudged, scratched, or cracked glasses interfere with your vision, so it’s important to take care of your glasses. Your eye doctor can educate you on how to protect your glasses, but here are a few easy-to-follow tips:

  • To clean your lenses, use a glasses cleaner and wipe the lenses with a microfiber cloth
  • Never use harsh chemicals such as ammonia or Windex to clean your lenses
  • If you are trying to adapt to a new prescription, put your glasses on in the morning when your eyes are relaxed
  • Store your glasses in a hard-shell case to protect them from getting broken
  • Never use paper towels, tissues, or napkins to wipe off your glasses
  • Clean your glasses once per day to ensure you can see clearly
