Pinhole glasses and you

You may be wondering why you should use pinhole glasses as transition glasses? Here are some advantages

1399686_blue_eye

1. Pinhole spectacles encourage rapid saccadic eye movements, as opposed to staring through prescription glasses.
2. Pinhole spectacles allow infinite room for improvement in sight, whereas eyes will always try to adjust to prescription glasses, even when the lenses are too strong.
3. There is no need to keep stepping down the prescription.
4. They are less costly than optically prescribed glasses.
5. Pinholes can be used as healthy sunglasses as they let through some essential natural light while cutting down the glare.
6. Anyone of any age can use them to compensate for blur at a distance or up close.
7. After regular use your brain will adjust to the honeycomb effect and will no longer register it.

And some possible disadvantages:
1. Pinholes function best in good light.
2. It takes some time to get used to them, usually a few days.
3. You may need to get permission to use them in the some places (like in the classroom, for students).
4. Everyone else will want your pair!

How do they work?

Pinholes work by cutting down scattered light into parallel beams that fall on the keenest area of sight on the retina (macula). They reduce the blur circle on the retina, allowing clear vision. Your brain becomes accustomed to the overlapping dark grid and does not notice it after a time. Pinholes can be used for computer, reading, TV, movies, and all distance vision. However, they are not a substitute for doing the vision games.

HOW TO USE YOUR PINHOLES

Wear your pinhole glasses anytime you want improved clarity and saccadic motion, and are not limited by legal or safety restrictions. Your first preference is to wear nothing in front of your eyes, and use your Magic Nose Pencil. Second choice for computer, TV, reading or other activities is your pinhole glasses. Third choice for activities such as driving (particularly if you have a restriction on your license), any activities where clarity is necessary for safety, or for work where more clarity is needed to reduce your stress, is your reduced prescription transition lenses.
When using your pinholes remember it is very hard to stare through them, and we consider that an advantage. Making small movements of your head as in the Magic Pencil activities will help. When reading choose one hole (for each eye) and look through it, moving it along the page as you read, rather than attempting to switch from hole to hole. This may help with other activities as well.

    Hi! I own a pair of pinhole glasses but haven’t got used to wearing them. Wearing them definitely makes the image better than without glasses, but there seems to still be a bit of double vision for me. I consulted the company I bought them from and they said that pinhole glasses are meant for those with 3 diopters or less. I have more than 5 diopters of myopia in each eye and have put the glasses away for a while. I feel working on the various eye exercises and relaxation techniques will be of more benefit for me at the moment. What’s your opinion?
