We share a connected and on-the-move lifestyle that influences our visual behavior.

Your patients live in a fast-paced world, constantly connected to people, information and things, both on- and offline. They tend to have their eyes fixed to digital devices even when they are on the move. And yet, life is about more than just screens. Constantly switching between digital devices and physical surroundings can be challenging for the eyes and may lead to uncomfortable vision or eye strain. This can make even ordinary tasks feel harder, or worse – let life’s details go unnoticed. Your patients want eyeglasses not only with clear central vision, but also smooth peripheral vision. This allows them to easily switch between distances and directions as they navigate through life.

Our visual needs evolve as we grow older.

Anatomical and physiological changes of the eyes can lead to different visual challenges over time. No matter the age of your patients, they seek eyeglasses that help them navigate in this modern lifestyle. Visual needs change as we age and these can be attributed to two key factors over time:

  • A decrease in the amplitude of accommodation.
  • A decrease in pupil diameter.
