What Does the Prism in Prism Spectacles Do?
When wearing glasses to make the reading material bigger, the reading material needs to be brought closer to the face in order to focus. A +10.00 needs to be about 4″ from the face to be in focus. If you try to focus on something at 4″ with both eyes, your eyes get tired very quickly. Base-in prism reduces the eye strain associated with focusing at a close distance.
They are also used for treating a number of different diseases that affect the eyes including, but not limited to: macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, Stargardt disease, stroke or brain injuries, hemianopia and quadrantanopia, diplopia, spinal or neck injuries
