If you intend to order glasses online, you will need to know how to read your eye doctor's prescription. Regardless where you come from, the expressions used in the prescription should be more or less the same. So let's learn how to read them! First you need to know the basic expressions used in prescriptions: OD vs. OS Eye OD is short for the Latin term oculus dexter which means right eye. OS is an abbreviation of the Latin oculus sinister which means left eye. You'll often see this terms on eyeglass prescriptions. Sphere, Cylinder and Axis The sphere (SPH) on your prescription indicates the lens power you need to see clearly. A minus (-) symbol next to this number means you're nearsighted, and a plus (+) symbol means the prescription is meant to correct farsightedness. The cylinder (CYL) number indicates the lens power needed to correct astigmatism. If this column is blank, it means you don't have an astigmatism. An axis number will also be included if you have an astigmatism. This number shows the angle of the lens that shouldn't feature a cylinder power to correct your astigmatism. A multifocal prescription will include an ADD value, sometimes marked as NV. This indicates the required strength for the near prescription in your lens. PD stands for pupillary distance, which is the distance between the centres of the pupils of your eyes. So now you know the basic terminology. Let's see how those parameters look on the prescription. Choosing the right lens type on your online order So now you know what the values on your prescription mean and how to read them. The next step is to know where to put those values when making your order on our website. First you have to choose the type of lenses you need. If you have (+) in front of the 'sphere' values, then you are farsighted and need glasses for reading. If this value has (-) in front of it, you are nearsighted and need glasses for distance vision. Another option are multifocal lenses, which you need in case you are both (nearsighted and farsighted). Also your prescription will contain the value for addition in this case. The last option you have on our website in to choose glasses with blue light protection, but this is an option for individuals without diopter. How to fill in the prescription values? When making an order on our website, you will find the values for right and left eye one below another. The word 'Power' equals the word 'Sphere' on your prescription, and the other values should be named identically, so you will not have problems finding them. Also their order is the same as on your prescription. What you should be careful about is the PD (pupillary distance) value. Sometimes you get only one PD value on your prescription. In this case you have to divide the number with 2 to get the PD for both eyes. If you don't have this value on your prescription, you can easily measure it on our website by clicking the button 'Measure PD online'. If you need multifocal lenses, you will get an additional column with 'Additiion' in the parameters section. Congratulations! You have learnt how to read your prescription and received all the necessary information to order your glasses online. If you'll have any additional questions, we'll be glad if you write to email@example.com.
90% of people who are spending more than 3 hours per day in front of screens are experiencing eye-strain. Sometimes they transform into massive headaches that can interfere with your work or personal life. If you are among those who have similar problems, we have some tips that will help you reduce eye-related problems. Consider using Blueblocker glasses Eye strain usually happens because of the blue light and glare on the screen, causing your eyes to work harder than they should. By blocking blue light from digital devices you can minimize your eyestrain, which helps to prevent headaches that appear as a consequence. If you are purchasing prescription glasses from crulle.com, you can choose blueblocker lenses in the checkout process. You can also choose lenses without diopter and add only blue light protection to your lenses. Use proper lighting Eye strain is often caused by excessively bright light either from outdoor sunlight coming in through a window or from harsh interior lighting. When you use a computer, your ambient lighting should be about half as bright as typically found in most offices. Eliminate exterior light by closing drapes, shades or blinds. Reduce interior lighting by using fewer light bulbs or fluorescent tubes, or use lower intensity bulbs and tubes. Modify your workstation Poor posture can also contribute to eye strains and headaches. Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height so your feet rest comfortably on the floor. Position your computer screen so it's 50 to 60cm from your eyes. The center of your screen should be about 10 to 15 degrees below your eyes for comfortable positioning of your head and neck. Take frequent breaks To reduce your risk for eye strain and neck, back and shoulder pain, take frequent screen breaks during your work day (at least one 10-minute break every 2 hours). During these breaks, stand up, move around and stretch your arms, legs, back, neck and shoulders to reduce tension and muscle fatigue. Exercise your eyes Another cause of computer eye strain is focusing fatigue. To reduce your risk of tiring your eyes by constantly focusing on your screen, look away from your computer at least every 20 minutes and stare at a distant object (at least 6m away) for at least 20 seconds. Looking far away relaxes the focusing muscle inside the eye and reduces focusing fatigue. Are you ready to improve the health of your eyes, while continuing with your computer work? Start with following at least a few of our recommendations and consider selecting your computer glasses with blue light protection at https://www.crulle.com/frames.html. Remember to choose Blueblocker lenses at the page checkout and you will be on your way to a healthier life.

Even if we are getting used to shopping clothes and shoes online, a lot of people are still not convinced that buying glasses online is a good choice for them. But since we can try glasses from home with a virtual mirror, this option is really convenient and a lot cheaper than buying glasses from your optician store. So what should you take into consideration when deciding which frame to choose? The right frame size Frame width is usually the most important factor when finding a pair of glasses that fit you well. The frame size should be in proportion to your face. If you have a narrow face, don't choose large glasses. If you already wear glasses you can measure their width for a reference. When that is not the case, you can measure the width of your face between your temples. The width of the frames should not be wider than the overall width of your face at the temples. Frame shape that suits you If you have an oval face almost all frame shapes will suit you, so you can be adventurous as you like. We recommend going for styles that are softly rounded Those with heart-shaped faces can opt for frames that are a little wider than their forehead or have an exaggerated brow line like a cat-eye shape. Round faces tend to be fairly short, with full cheeks, rounded chin and softer jawline. It's best to choose styles that will complement your softer features, so go for rounder frames rather than angular. If your face width and length are proportionate, then you have a square face. You should try create a little more length in the face and to offset your strong features, so opt for narrower styles that are still angular in shape to complement your face. Consider colours that match your skin tone Warm skin tones usually have a yellow, bronze or golden cast to their skin. If this is the case, you should stay away from contrasting colours such as pastels. White and black frames are not flattering either. Instead, the best frame colours for you are light tortoise, browns shades, gold or honey, beige, and olive green. If your skin has pink or blue undertones, you have a cool complexion. Avoid colours that wash you out and instead reach for frames that are silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, mauve and gray. Use virtual mirror When choosing the frames you can get the best idea of how they fit you, if you simply try them on with our virtual mirror. You can make screenshots of different frames and compare the photos or show them to your friends. When looking for glasses that are a perfect-match the most important thing is to choose the right frame size, shape and colour, but it all depends on your face features. So take time when choosing the frames and most of all, choose the ones that make you feel good when wearing them.
Sometimes we are in a lot of doubts when considering buying glasses online, especially prescription glasses. But in reality shopping for glasses online is a breeze! If you wear glasses and need a new pair, here are the main reasons why you should order them online.Online is cheaper Buying prescription glasses at traditional optometrists or retail optical store can be 3-10x more expensive than purchasing them online. But why are glasses from physical stores so expensive? It's because you are not only paying the frame and the lenses but also the retailer's hefty outsourcing costs, which usually include manufacturing, licensing fees, warehousing, physical sore costs and more. When buying our glasses online you avoid most of those costs and save money. Convenience Instead of having to drive to optical store to choose your glasses, you can choose them from your home. The only thing you will need is to obtain a prescription for glasses from an eye doctor, and you’ll need to have your measurements on hand when you order. More choice When choosing glasses online you have a lot more frames to choose from than in your local optician's store. You can browse through a variety of frames and collect as many information or reviews as you need to make the final decision. Another benefit is that online stores often offer more discounts than traditional storefronts might. Try on with virual mirror Even if you can’t try your glasses physically, you can put them on virtually!

What are they? Progressive lenses basically have three prescriptions in one pair of glasses. That allows you to do close-up work (like reading a book), middle-distance work (like checking out a website on a computer), or distance viewing (like driving) without needing to change your glasses. Progressive lenses are no-line multifocal eyeglass lenses that look exactly the same as single vision lenses. In other words, progressive lenses will help you see clearly at all distances without those annoying (and age-defining) "bifocal lines" that are visible in regular bifocals and trifocals. Who uses progressive lenses?Progressive lenses are the lens of choice for practically anyone who needs corrective lenses to see distant objects clearly (due to farsightedness and/or astigmatism) and has also become presbyopic. Presbyopia is a condition when your vision blurs when you're doing close-up work like reading or sewing. Don't worry, it's a natural part of getting older. Advantages of progressive lenses One of their instant advantages is that the design of progressive lenses blends the prescription. There is no image jump or visible line on the lens. This enhances your comfort with your lenses and is a safer option when doing things such as driving. That’s not to mention that more lenses and frames mean more maintenance and more money. That is just not as convenient. With progressive lenses, you don’t have to take them off when switching between things such as working on a computer and driving. Even if you don’t use a computer, anything with an LCD or LED screen can be damaging to your eyes. So, you want that intermediate correction. Progressive lenses can correct distance, intermediate and reading focus with one lens. It’s like killing three birds with one stone. Disadvantages of progressive lenses One of the few progressive lens disadvantages it that there are occasionally problems with high definition progressive lenses when walking up and downstairs. Since the reading correction is at the bottom, the stairs may seem like they bounce and appear wobbly. However, it’s all about adapting to your progressive lenses. With progressive lenses, problem often disappears in about two weeks, so it’s important to give it time if you've just started to wear them. You may also have an issue with the materials, coatings, adjustments, and position-of-wear, rather than with the progressive lens itself. Some people also feel like they just don’t like progressive lenses and that they’re too hard to get used to. Progressive lenses aren’t for everyone. A small percentage of people are unable to adapt to them, and in these cases, bifocals are a better alternative. Conclusion Progressive lenses let multiple vision fields to be added to a single lens, and progressively adjust for the distance of the object we are lookin at. With almost no disadvantages, other than the time used for your eyes to adapt, they are a no-brainer choice for anyone with presbyopia. You can also look at it this way: It's like having three sets of lenses in one, all without ever having to change your eyeglasses.
When asked what are the essential pieces of winter accessory, most of us would answer with winter boots, thick coat, scarf, a warm hat and mittens. But did you know that it wouldn't be such a bad idea to put sunglasses on that list as well? Here's why: Eye protection While there is no doubt that a little sunlight is good for you, we all know what happens when your skin is exposed to direct sunlight without protection. The skin becomes red, swollen and the whole experience is quite painful. It's not any different with our eyes. In winter months, bright UV exposure amplified by all the whiteness around you can cause photokeratitis, commonly known as snow blindness and often described as sunburn of the eye. It only adds to the issue that every 1000 meters increase in altitude, UV levels increase by 10% to 12% so whether you are planning on hitting the slopes or not, just being around snow without protection dramatically increases the danger of causing damage to your eyes. Reduce eyestrain & headaches On a clear day, the sun shines up to 5,000 times brighter than an average light bulb. When something that bright hits your eye, a few things can happen. If it's only momentarily, what you'll be left with is a blurry splotch on your vision called an after image that usually clears up within a few minutes. When our eyes are exposed to to direct sunlight for longer durations of time they become tired, tense and we can even be greeted by a headache. The pupil controls how much light reaches the eye retina in the back of the eye. When the light is bright the pupil constricts limiting the amount of light released through. However if the light is still to bright the pupil just can't constrict enough and we begin squinting which causes further eyestrain and headaches. Sunglasses work as a shield for our eyes so don't forget to bring your favorite pair with you wherever you go. Improving your vision Are you a courageous explorer of nature, or more of a watching the city skyline in the sunset type of person? Whatever the case may be, we bet that squinting has made you redo more than one photo. As long as you are outside enjoying the warm sunlight in the winter you are also taking on many hazards. One of them is that we occasionally feel blinded or like our sight has gotten worse in a matter of seconds. You really don't want that to happen often especially when that can have some serious consequences. Imagine driving a car and suddenly not being able to see where you are going or what is coming your way. What is the solution? You have probably guessed correctly. Sunglasses are the answer. Sunglasses make you see clearly without irritation or squinting or eye watering, and most importantly, they help your eyes keeping the moisturizer we call tears. If the sun is shining or even if it's not (up to 80% of UV radiation goes straight through clouds), put on your favorite pair of sunglasses. Your eyes will be grateful. Fashion If you don't care about your eyes, even though you really should as these are the only pair you're getting, you can still wear them just for the sake of them going really well together with your scarf. If wearing sunglasses makes you feel like a supermodel doing the catwalk or that heads will turn after you then there is absolutely no one that can stop you from wearing your favorite pair of sunglasses whether you're inside or outside, whether it's sunny, cloudy or rain pouring down. You'll still look amazing and your eyes are going to feel amazing as well.
Whenever we go shopping for pretty much anything, we almost always check what we’re actually buying. The ingredients, if we're buying food, or the materials, if we're buying clothes or shoes. We check the brakes, check the engine, and take it for an extensive test drive, before we even consider buying that new car. But what about eyewear? Food is a necessity and common sense dictates, that the healthier you eat the healthier you will be. You wear clothes every day and want something comfortable that'll also make you feel good, perhaps made of cotton so it can breathe and you won’t be excessively hot or cold. You drive your car every day and you want to make sure it's safe and mechanically impeccable for your safety and for the safety of others. But then again, what about eyewear? Do you not want your eyes to be healthy and not have sight problems or make them worse? Do you not want them to be comfortable to wear, and comfortable for your eyes as they won’t strain and get dry? Do you not use them every day? And would you not agree that it's safer to wonder around the world seeing where you're going and what's ahead of you? We pay attention to so many things on a daily basis that we often forget about the small details. If they’re not catered and taken care of, they can cause problems on the long run. Your eyes are one of those small details that many of us take for granted. When we're buying a new pair of glasses, one of the first things we look at is the price and then the brand. Almost never do we look at what type of lenses are actually in their frames and if our eyes will actually benefit from them, or only our ego. Perhaps the part of the problem is lack of transparency as many don't offer the quality you'd expect, regardless of the price tag. That's why we want to be crystal clear about what we put in our frames. Eyewear business is not a joke and we take your health very seriously. That is why each and every one of our lenses inserted in our sunglasses, prescription glasses and even the magnetic clip-on lenses come with 100% UV type 3 protection , the only thing stronger is type 4 protection, used for high mountains, desserts and glaciers and is actually so strong it's forbidden in traffic. All of our sunglasses are also treated with a polarization filter, further preventing glare and increasing eye comfort. Now that you know that no matter which of our glasses you buy your eyes will always be well protected, let's take a look at how we make your life easier with our five layer protection sy stem. Put in place for our prescription glasses line-up, to keep the maintenance as low as possible and increase their lifespan. One of them is the UV filter I've mentioned before, protecting your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB light. ⇒ In his aid towards eye comfort is the antireflex coating, preventing glare and keeping your image clear and focused at all times. Now it's not the same as the polarization filter on our sunglasses, but it's as close as it gets. Glare is the main cause for squinting, beside poor sight of course, and therefore the main cause for eyestrain, sore eyes and headaches. Would you wear something every day that causes you migraines and makes you look like you've forgot what sleep is? We have the same opinion, that's why this coating is on our lenses. ⇒ We know the sun doesn't shine every day, that in winter months you can't wait for your glasses to fog up. Worry no more, we've heard of the problem before. We added a super-hydrophobic coating to prevent and minimize water retention. Drink you tea without worrying of partial blindness due to foggy glasses and enjoy every moment to its full potential. ⇒ His partner, the self-cleaning coating as we like to call it, won't actually clean the glasses for you... However, together with the hydrophobic layer, it will make sure to minimize the amount of fingerprints on your lenses and prevent dust and other dirt residue to have a pool party in front of your eyes. ⇒ To keep it all together, we've packed the entire collection of layers under an extra compact, hardened coating. Protecting form accidental scratches, increasing their lifespan and making sure you get the most out of your money. The longer they last, the longer you don't have to buy a new pair, unless your sight weakens of course. The sun is already very harmful and as time goes by its only getting worse. Your eyes are the only pair you'll get, so nurture them and protect them so that they can serve you for as long as possible. We want to bring awareness to the fact that if they block some of the light, it doesn't mean they actually protect your eyes. UV light is not on the spectrum of visible light, and in this case the saying »If you can't see it, it doesn't hurt«, just isn't true. That's why we offer a complete solution, from exterior looks, to interior protection, because your perspective should always be safe and crystal clear.
If you look at prescription eyewear business, not much has really changed in a long time. You go to your eye specialist to get your eye exam and then you either buy your glasses from them or in a retail store. A number of companies are selling prescription glasses online but it's a market with a lot of limitations, as you still require the parameters for each eye, and that can only be done in person by an optician or a doctor. And if you get tested by the optician, it makes sense that, if you're already there, you try on some frames and see which one fits best, and buy it from them. However, that does not mean that selling prescription glasses online is a lost cause. A revolution is just around the corner, driven by advances in a different area, telemedicine, treating patients remotely or electronically. You'll be able to get a refraction exam, the test to determine parameters for each of your eyes, from the comfort of your couch, with the help of a laptop or a smartphone, while likely costing less than going to your eye specialist. Many companies are developing the at-home exam, several say they already have it and all they are waiting for is a green light from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). We don't know how far away we are from this becoming a reality, but we can be sure that when it does, it'll shift the prescription glasses industry to a whole new level. Of course that is not good news for all of the established players in the industry. They are fighting this change by arguing that when you go to the doctor's office for your eye exam, he also checks for other serious eye disease, preventing a lot of serious injuries that way. They are not wrong, and all advocates for the online refraction test respond by saying they will still advise consumers to go and take those tests. Even if you do have to go to your optician to get your refraction exam done, it still makes sense to order them from an online store specializing in eyewear, as you'll usually pay a fraction of what you would pay at the opticians store or in retail. This is a field where Crullé excels and feels right at home. Not only do we offer high quality, designer frames, if you know your eye parameters, you simply go to our website, select a frame you like and input your parameters. Our specialists will grind the lenses, insert them into your frame and the next thing you know they'll be at your door. If you’re worried that the glasses won't be a good fit for you, we have you covered as well. With our handy virtual mirror tool, you can see how the glasses would look on you with the help of a camera from your smartphone or your laptop. Ok, so far so good, but what about the price? You can get your pair with custom lenses and shipping from around 30€ onwards (depends on the frame model, lens type and your lens power. Compared to the 250€ my dad paid for his a year ago, it looks like a bargain. But why are we so affordable? I think you are asking the wrong question… The question should be; Why is everyone else so expensive?
