Computer Lenses

Do you get headaches or eyestrain from staring at your computer monitor? At the end of a long day in front of your computer screen, is it difficult to focus on distant objects? You may be suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). With most of the population working on computers for multiple hours a day, Dr. Elizabeth Becker, Dr. Tracy Moran, and Dr. Wendy Nielubowicz want to share some educational information on Computer Lenses.

According to the American Optometric Association, 70-75 percent of computer workers experience eye and vision problems. This condition, known as computer vision syndrome, includes blurry vision, sore and tired eyes, and neck and shoulder pain. Nearsighted people often complain of headaches, eye strain, squinting or fatigue when driving, playing sports, or looking more than a few feet away.

Special computer task lenses can be used to supplement your primary pair of eyewear to solve computer specific vision requirements. For example, computer task lenses can help relieve the symptoms of computer vision syndrome by enhancing vision at the near and intermediate distances. With the added comfort of a more natural head position.

Ask your doctor for more information if you’re experiencing symptoms of computer vision syndrome.
