    People who have myopia can wear pinhole glasses to strengthen their eye muscle, which help you to reduce the prescription. The lens is made of plastic materials that contain many pinhole sized holes. Pinhole glasses can cut down on light and make you see distant objects more clearly. Some people use them as a way to prevent myopia.

    Typically, pinhole glasses are a good choice in the summer. They make the light entering the eyes as little as possible so as to protect the eyes. On the one hand, pinhole glasses protect the eyes as this principle. Therefore, they should not be used while driving or operating machinery. In addition, if you have heavy prescription myopia, we recommend that you do not choose the glasses. If you are not in the above case, no doubt, that the glasses are a good choice.

    People who suffer eye problems, such as myopia, hyperopia, and strain eyes, can wear pinhole glasses for improving vision. Usually, people suffer myopia and hyperopia, they prefer to wear prescription glasses for clear vision. However, when you put on the prescription glasses, you will no longer use the focusing muscles. Therefore, your ciliary muscle becomes weaker and weaker. You have to get stronger glasses for the clear vision. Pinhole glasses can help you excise your eye muscle, but they cannot replace the prescription. So pinhole glasses are suitable for people suffering vision problem to excise the eye muscle.

    Pinhole glasses which are well known as stenopeic glasses are eyeglasses with a series of pinhole-sized perforations filling an opaque sheet of plastic in place of each lens. Because of being combined with certain eye exercises, they could permanently improve eyesight. In other words, pinhole glasses are really useful for nearsighted people and farsighted people. Pinhole glasses are not made of glass at all, but of an opaque substance such as metal or plastic. The user looks through any of the many small holes in the material. Pinholes can bring about clearer vision in all these conditions. Even if pinhole glasses are claimed to be used by people who are both near- and far-sighted, they are not recommended for people with over 6 diopters of myopia.
