Pinhole Glasses – Vision Therapy Eyewear – Natural Vision Correction
The Science of Pinhole Glasses:
Although the concept of pinhole glasses has 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.
When you look at a blurred object your brain moves the focus of the eye in and out until it gets an increase in contrast. If no increase is achieved, your brain leaves the object unfocused.
Pinholes improve the sharpness of the image, allowing your brain to find the point of focus. During this process, the focusing muscles of the eye are getting used more and this regular exercise helps your eyes’ focusing system.
