Computer Glasses

Everyone and their grandma uses computers today, it’s increasingly hard to find someone who doesn’t know their Windows from their Word. But what you may not know is that high levels of computer use have actually been shown to have a detrimental effect on our vision. Hours spent at the office really could be doing more harm than good (a great excuse to leave).

A survey conducted by the Vision Council found that 70% of people suffer some sort of problem from the overuse of electrical devices, be it smart phones or computers. This is more commonly known as Computer Vision Syndrome or CVS. People commonly complain of sore eyes or redness at the end of the work day, but what’s the solution?

Glasses for Computer use

The idea of computer glasses may sound nerdish, we prefer to say geek chic, but there’s real proof that they actually help. Computer glasses work by minimizing the strain put on our eyes when looking at electrical devices for a long period of time. Computer screens are classed as being in our intermediate field of vision, not as far as driving but not as close as reading so it makes sense to have a different prescription for when using computers.

Computer glasses can sometimes incorrectly be referred to as ‘Computer reading glasses’ but because of the need to have a different prescription, the distinction should be made. Avoid the temptation to just go out and buy a pair of reading glasses, this might actually do more harm than good. Computer glasses have the added benefit of an anti-reflective coating that reduces glare from the computer screen.
