Computer lenses are engineered to meet the visual demands unique to computer use.
Computer use includes desktops, iPads, smart phones, laptops, etc. In today's work environment, it is not uncommon for individuals to spend the majority of the day working on a computer. This creates eyestrain that can result in eye discomfort or pain, headaches, neck or back pain, or vision that seems to worsen or fluctuate throughout the day.
Many people assume that glasses or contact lenses prescribed for distance correction can also be used for computer use. For some people this is true, However, for the majority of people this is not the case. The prescription required for computer use is often times different from the prescription used for distance correction or reading correction.
When choosing a computer lens it is important that the lens meet the requirements of your specific work environment. Be sure to discuss the number of computer screens or devices used throughout the day; the working distance of each screen or device; and your expectation of viewing distance.
