The computer has become a constant companion in our working environment, but frequent screen work is very demanding on the eyes.
We often sit at our computers in a permanently tense state and grant our eyes very little relief. This can result in neck tension, headaches and red, watery eyes. For those who also suffer from presbyopia, a condition that adversely affects both short and long distance vision, there is the additional problem of choosing the right glasses to facilitate working in a more relaxed manner.
Which eyeglasses are best for this situation? Many people initially reach for their reading glasses when they have to do computer work. Then the door opens; your colleague is standing in the doorway and asks you a question. Now your glasses interfere with your longer range vision and you cannot see the person clearly. At that moment, you might peer over the eyeglass frames and tense up as well.
Progressives are not the perfect solution for the workplace either. They may allow you to see clearly at different distances, but the visual field for the near and medium ranges is often too small for prolonged close-up work and can strain the eyes. What to do?
Talk to your eye care professional about computer glasses, which are enhanced reading glasses with special varifocal lenses. This is an intelligent solution for continuously clear vision for short to intermediate distances, a solution that is specifically coordinated for the visual demands of the workplace. The combination of reading glasses and varifocal lenses combines the different sight requirements of desk-bound work.
