Computer Eye Strain A Problem?

If you work at a Personal Computer for at least 2 hours a day, there is a very good chance that you suffer from a number of eye and vision-related problems. This group of problems is called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

CVS includes eyestrain, blurred vision, dry eyes, irritated and tired eyes, and also headaches. Neck and back aches are common problems that are related to the way you use your eyes at the computer.

Good News: Good Eye Care as well as improvements in the ergonomics of your work station can help a lot in minimizing CVS.

Because the way you use your eyes at the computer is quite different from the way you use your eyes while driving or reading, many computer users require a pair of eyeglasses specifically made for computer use. These specialized computer glasses have a different prescription and/ or a different lens design as compared to your everyday jack-of-all-trades eyeglasses.

If you wear bifocals or no-line bifocals, both these lenses usually do not work well for computer use. Bifocals with lines are usually the worst! The best solution for you is a specialized glare-free computer lens made to your specific visual needs, different in prescription as well as lens design than your everyday glasses.
