For many of us, eyeglasses are simply another extension of ourselves, an accessory that is often the first thing we put on in the morning, and the last thing we take off before we go to bed. Sight problems are a common aspect in life, as most vision conditions are often inherited, and many others will develop over time as a side effect of again. And yet, despite the high numbers of children and adults alike wearing eyeglasses in order to see, few of us have ever given thought to how these devices work. Understanding your vision and the abilities of your eyeglasses can be an important aspect of seeing clearly. To find out how your eyeglasses work to give you perfect vision, simply visit the experts at your local Henderson eyeglass store

Your eyeglasses work to correct your vision problems through the science of optics. The most common vision problems are caused by an inherited condition which causes your eyes to grow into an improper shape. Myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism are all caused when the curvature of the cornea of your eye is not a perfect sphere. When this happens, the light which enters your eyes and works to carry information to your optic nerves become improperly refracted. This causes the information it brings to become scattered. Poorly refracted light is no longer entering the retina properly, and delivers only partial information to your brain, creating blurry vision. The lenses of your eyeglasses work to correct this problem by refocusing the light properly, and work according to both the shape and thickness of your lens. If you have myopia or nearsightedness, your lenses are convex, meaning they have slight curve that pushes the light toward the top and bottom of the lens to allow for proper entrance inot the retina. If you have hyperopia or nearsightedness, your lenses are concave, meaning the design works to push the light towards the center for proper vision. The goal of each lens is the same, working in order to focus light into the retina for clear vision. The degree of the curve of your lenses from your professional Henderson eyeglass store
increases with the strength of your prescription.
