Millions of people spend long hours working at their computers, and if you are one of them, your computer monitor could be doing real harm to your eyes. Sore and tired eyes, headaches and blurred vision, even neck and back pain from straining to see your monitor, are all symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome, or CVS. CVS can affect anyone who works on a computer. While maintaining good posture is an important part of the solution, a prescription for customized computer lenses can significantly reduce many of the symptoms that you may be experiencing.
Customized computer lenses are different from regular eyeglass lenses. Regular eyeglass lenses may be good for reading, or driving, but they are not always suitable for computer work. Computer lenses are uniquely designed to make it easier to focus at the distance of your computer monitor, and reduce the glare caused by the lighting in your working environment.
These lenses can also be given special tints, and lens coatings, that provide sharper vision, and better protection for your eyes. Computer glasses are not intended to replace your regular eyeglasses. They are recommended as a second pair of glasses, because they are customized to provide enhanced vision specifically for the workplace environment.
