Computer Vision Syndrome
According to a recent report by the American Optometric Association, computer eyestrain affects more than 70% of the approximate 145 million Americans who spend time on computers on a daily basis. Eyestrain is one of the common symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS), which has substantially increased in the last few decades among adults and children.
For those who spend more than two hours a day on computers, it is likely that they will have some degree of CVS. Symptoms include: headaches, dry eye, focus loss, double vision, blurred vision, burning eyes, light sensitivity and fatigue. Many patients struggling with computer vision syndrome may not realize what’s causing their problem. Some patients often blame their headaches, neck aches, and eyestrain on stress, migraines, or even sinus problems
Office lenses, or computer glasses, will make users more comfortable at their computers, and almost any style of frame can be used for computer glasses.
What are Office Lenses?
Office lenses are an occupational progressive lens designed to provide uncompromised visual acuity for near and mid-range vision. They utizile a sophisticated no-line design that guarantees crystal clear vision for the printed page, computer screen area and beyond.
Office lenses answer the needs of a wide range of professionals: doctors, chefs, musicians, artists, accountants, car mechanics and other workers requiring concentrated vision for up to 6-8 feet.
Office lenses are superior to standard progressive lenses for an office environment, because it devotes a larger area of the lens to the distances where most of your time is spent. The result is a wider area of clear vision for arm's length distance, and a more comfortable head position for near work.
If you need clear, comfortable vision over a range of 1 foot to 8 feet for your work or hobbies, the office lenses are a great option for you.
