What are pinhole glasses?
The modern and affordable alternative to prescription eyeglasses, pinhole glasses consist of precision-manufactured lightweight perforated plastic lenses, inset into standard metal or plastic spectacle frames. They are ideal for sufferers of refractive eye disorders, the elderly and computer users as the pinholes - accurately formed by laser technology - allow only direct and coherent light rays to pass through into the eye.
In a healthy eye, light rays are focused into a single point on the light sensitive retina at the back of the eyeball. Depending upon the type of refractive disorder endured, less healthy eyes focus light rays in front of or behind the retina, casting a 'blur circle' on the retina itself. The minute pinholes on the surface of the plastic lenses of your pinhole glasses effectively stop down the aperture of the eye's pupil, so pass a narrower beam of light through to the eye lens with a greater depth of field. The narrow beam casts a smaller blur circle on the retina, improving your vision.
Customers who have purchased pinhole glasses from us report that they experience better clarity and resolution of vision when wearing them. Some have commented that they achieve almost perfect vision, and rank our pinhole glasses as equal in performance to their prescription eyeglasses. Providing you have no impairment or degeneration of your retina, you too will see more clearly, whether you suffer from myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, computer vision syndrome or cataracts and at just a few dollars a pair, pinhole glasses provide an affordable alternative to high-cost prescription eyeglasses that need to be replaced regularly as your prescription changes.
The Benefits of Pinhole Glasses
For sufferers of refractive eye disorders, pinhole glasses will improve the clarity & resolution of your vision.
Pinhole glasses are proven to increase apparent object brightness - ideal if you struggle with vision in low-light situations.
Unlike bi-focal and tri-focal glasses that are designed to yield good vision at fixed distances, pinhole glasses allow you to see clearly at all distances, whether short, middle or long distance focus is required. Many users also find them less stressful on the eye than multi-focal or vari-focal lenses.
Whether you are reading a book or watching TV, one pair of pinhole glasses is all you'll ever need.
All modern-day pinhole glasses are lightweight, weighing no more than traditional spectacles.
No need to worry about scratches & marks on the lenses. The performance of pinhole glasses is not adversely affected by defects that would otherwise degrade visual acuity through eyeglasses.
Pinhole glasses in the 21st Century are designed to be attractive and stylish.
Pinhole Glasses - The popular alternative to prescription eyeglasses
Although the concept of pinhole glasses have been around for some time, it is only in recent years that pinhole glasses have risen in popularity. This is in part due to the more stylish and well-finished designs that are available on the market today, together with a greater acceptance of their usefulness by consumers and medical professionals alike.
It is now widely accepted that pinhole glasses do improve vision for those suffering with refractive error eye disorders, indeed even ophthalmologists use pinhole equipment to check eyes for refractive disorders during eye examinations. Moreover, evidence suggesting that concave or 'minus' eyeglass lenses actually accelerate acquired myopia is mounting. Many are turning to pinhole glasses as a prevention method and cure to this problem that has steadily increased over the last 50 years.
