Computer use has rapidly increased over the last two decades among all age groups. Are they hard on your eyes? Just ask the majority of computer users who experience symptoms such as blurry vision, watery or dry eyes, headache, sore eyes and eye fatigue. It’s such a widespread problem that a new term has been invented to describe this condition – “Digital Eye Strain”.
To reduce your chance of having Digital Eye Strain, it’s important to have the right eyeglass correction. Equally important is to have the right type of eyeglasses – especially if you wear progressives.
Think of a progressive eyeglass lens as a “do-it-all” type of lens. This means that technically you can use it for everything from driving to reading, and everywhere in between. Where it falls short is when you start doing one or two visual distances for a prolonged period of time. Then, you should be looking at glasses that “specialize” in the type of task you are doing.
We have a new type of eyeglass lens to introduce to you at Mountain View Optometry – the new Officelens by ZEISS. This new lens is designed to allow for clear, comfortable vision in an office environment, all day long. The unique features of this lens are explained below:
Computer work demands a lot of us both mentally and physically. Research shows that about three out of four eyeglass wearers use computers at least four hours per day. Make sure your eyes have the most precise, comfortable lens option available. Talk to us about the new ZEISS Officelens during your next appointment.
