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. Craig B. Kurtz wants to share information on Computer Lenses. 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, such as blurry vision, sore and tired eyes, and headaches, by enhancing vision at the near and intermediate distances.

According to the American Optometric Association, 70–75% 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. Near-sighted 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 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.
