Is Therapy Glasses Can Fix Sight?

Therapy glasses are often used as an option to overcome various problems in the eye. But unfortunately, the effectiveness of these glasses in improving vision is still a controversy. Using glasses is one way to improve your eyesight. At least, there are two types of therapy glasses that are claimed to normalize your eyes, namely pinhole glasses (sunglasses) and orthoptic glasses. Visit to help you to improve your vision.

– Pinhole Glasses

These glasses are specially designed for people with near-nearsightedness and farsightedness. Unlike typical glasses, the lens on the pinhole glasses is coated in a dark plastic sheet filled with tiny holes. These holes allow the light to penetrate the eye and focus on the retina better to clarify your vision. Pinhole glasses can be used to help diagnose certain eye conditions, such as cataracts and corneal distortion. In addition, these perforated glasses can also be used by aniridia sufferers, where the iris (colored part of the eye) is not fully developed or is not even formed at all. As a result, the light entering the eye becomes uncontrollable. This results in increased eye sensitivity to light (glare) and reduced visual acuity. By using pinhole glasses, the amount of light entering the eye can be restricted and the vision becomes clearer

However, the opposite effect can also occur. These glasses may make your eyes blurred and obstructed. Pinhole glasses are not recommended for use when driving or when operating the machine, because the effect can reduce the brightness of the object.

– Orthoptic Eyeglasses

These therapy glasses are used by ophthalmologists to help control the coordination and movement of your eyeballs, with the aim of improving vision. Various eye problems that are claimed to be overcome by orthoptic spectacles include:

Impaired movement of the eyeball, can be caused by illness, injury, nervous disorders, or birth defects that affect the muscles of the eyes or nerves.
Vision is not focused.
Amblyopia or lazy eyes.
Visual problems related to brain injury.

Some ophthalmologists recommend orthoptic glasses, but some do not recommend it considering clinical data supporting the benefits of this therapy glasses is lacking. So, before you decide to wear thyroid goggles, consult your eye doctor first.
