Prolonged use of the computer may result in computer vision syndrome. While CVS is not dangerous, it’s important to take protective precautions while using the computer. If you’re experiencing dry eyes, eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches, or neck and shoulder pain then glasses for computer use may be a good choice for you.
With the combination of the correct intermediate reading prescription (or computer prescription) and anti-glare coating, you will find that most, if not all, your symptoms will disappear. If you think you may suffer from CVS or if you are just tired of straining your eyes and leaning forward to be able to see what’s on your screen, then try a pair of computer glasses.
Choose any one of our comfotable frames, enter your prescription, add Blue495 anti-glare coating and look stylish while protecting your eyes. For more information please feel free to contact us.
Staring at a computer screen for prolonged periods may leave your eyes feeling tired and dry. We recommend using lenses that have an anti-glare coating specifically made to block the harmful blue light emitted by electronic devices. This is great for everyone who uses electronics, whether you need vision correction or not!
Blocking Blue Light is your first defense in Computer Vision Prevention. Blue light may also affect your sleep pattern and increase your risk for macular degeneration, the leading cause of age-related vision-loss and affects over 10 million Americans (more than cataracts and glaucoma combined).
If you have an over the counter reader, your computer distance prescription is typically half of your prescription strength, rounding up to the next quarter if it’s not an even number.
If you wear prescription glasses, take the SPH (sphere) number of your prescription and add half of your reading prescription strength to it. For example, if your reading prescription is +2.00 then add +1.00 to your SPH. If there are other numbers, those stay the same.
If you’re not comfortable calculating the prescription strenths yourself, we recommend going to your vision provider where they can do this for you.
Another common option is to use either a lined bifocal or a no-line bifocal (progressives) that has your computer prescription at the top/middle of the lens and your reading prescription on the bottom of the lens. This combination works great for office use or if you’re spending some time on your computer at home!
Our highly trained customer service team will be more than happy to assist you and give you more information regarding which option would best suit your needs.
