Academic studies prove that from the age of 40, the lens will reduce its flexibility and the result of this change is the loss of the ability of the eyes to focus the images closely with clarity. As a result of this problem, popular culture moves patients to go out wildly in a random search for a pair of grade glasses (either).

As if a model unconditionally suited all disorders, many people go on to use glasses without prescription and the consequence is the aggravation of a series of eye problems. Due to the frequent occurrence of this type of problem, the National Health Surveillance Agency-ANVISA published Resolution 44 (which came into force in 2010), prohibiting pharmacies from commercializing prescription glasses without prescription according to foodezine.com.

ANVISA also notes that potential damages caused by poor quality glasses are not restricted to grade models. Sunglasses are manufactured with the aim of protecting our vision from the incidence of ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB). The problem is that many models do not have the specifications recommended by doctors, which can cause, in the medium term, from allergies, eyelid injuries, cataracts and even skin cancer.

After all this information, it is worth reflecting the price of your health.Never buy sunglasses and degree without prescription.
