Today, more than ever, people of all ages are spending many hours a day in front of a computer. It can be very difficult to maintain accurate focus on the blurry and moving pixelated image on a computer and the effort needed to focus and refocus causes ciliary fatigue, which can result in Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Fatigue, headaches, eyestrain and blurred vision are common complaints of long-term computer users.
When indicated, wearing computer glasses that assist in maintaining focus while working on the computer can significantly increase visual comfort and productivity over time. Specialized lens coatings may also be helpful in filtering out blue light emitted by computer screens and tablets, thus protecting the eye from harmful light. Our doctors and opticians are happy to recommend options based on individualized needs.
