Studies indicate that 50 to 90 percent of computer users suffer from visual symptoms of computer vision syndrome. Symptoms of which include eye strain, dry eyes, eye irritation, blurred vision and double vision.
These symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS) are common in case of those who tend to sit for long hours in front of the computer screen. People try to compensate for their blurred vision by leaning forward, or by tipping their head to look through the bottom portion of their glasses. Both of these actions can result in a sore neck, sore shoulders and a sore back.
To overcome eye discomfort during computer work, purchase customized computer glasses. These special-purpose glasses are prescribed to reduce eye strain and give you the most comfortable vision possible at your computer. They will help you see your screen more clearly, whether it is large or small, and can help protect your eyes from the harmful blue light given out by computer screens. These specially designed glasses for computer users help you to see your screen more clearly, reducing squinting and tiredness.
They are generally called “computer reading glasses,” or “computer glasses” or “computer eyeglasses” to distinguish them from conventional reading glasses. These glasses have about 60 percent the magnifying power of reading glasses. But the optimal magnification depends on how far you prefer to sit from your computer screen and how close you like to hold your digital devices. Computer glasses possess tints and special coatings, such as anti-reflective coating to eliminate glare, photochromic lenses to shield your eyes from blue light, or even lenses in a different color.
Reading Glasses Versus Computer Glasses
When we use computers, they tend to be farther away from our eyes than book reading, which puts them in the intermediate zone (20 to 26 inches from the user’s eyes) where reading glasses don’t help as much. If you wear trifocals, that narrow strip for intermediate vision may not be large enough to be comfortable over longer periods of screen time.
Computer glasses are designed to help specifically with intermediate vision. Their magnification power should correspond to how close you prefer to sit to your screen.
- Computer glasses should accurately correct any astigmatism you might have, and
- Precise measurements should be taken to insure the optical center of each lens is directly in front of your pupils when you are using your preferred working distance.
