Computer Eye Glasses and "Computer Vision Syndrome"
When working at the computer the eyes are required to maintain focus and alignment at a fixed distance in many cases, long periods of time. Oftentimes as a result in one or more of the following symptoms can occur: blurred vision, headaches, pulling sensations of the eye muscles, double vision, sleepiness, generalized fatigue, and potentially reduced comprehension and efficiency of function. Moreover, glare from computer screens is also a very common problem. Additionally, it has been found that blink rates are reduced while involved in prolonged near vision tasks such as computer use and can result in complaints of the gritty, sandy, burning symptoms associated with very dry eyes.
Specific lens prescriptions and designs are designed to reduce the demands on your eyes during computer use. These lenses are prescribed to function at the distance that you sit from your computer, which is typically different than your normal reading distance, thus allowing you to work more efficiently and with far greater comfort.
