Always wear sunglasses or Transitions glasses (glasses that get dark outside and become clear indoors) to prevent macular degeneration.
Ultraviolet will cause the macula (center of the back part of the eye) to degenerate. People affected by macular degeneration lose their center vision. The disease also creates starbursts, halos and causes blurry vision. Vision remains blurry even with glasses on.
To helps keep thickness to a minimum:
Make sure that your eyes are located in the center (horizontally) of the lenses.
If you are nearsighted (far is blurry):
It is best to pick a small frame.
The bigger the frame, the thicker the lens will be.
You should also contemplate high-index lenses. They are thinner than regular lenses.
Consider a plastic frame to hide some of the lens thickness.
If you are farsighted (near is blurry):
Aspheric lenses are recommended (thinner than regular lenses).
You should also consider high-index lenses.
If you are farsighted, rimless and drill-mount frames are not recommended. The edge of the lens is very thin and will chip very easily.
