The computer has become a constant companion in our working environment. Frequent screen work is also very demanding on the eyes.
We often sit at our computers in a permanently tense state and grant our eyes very little relief. This can result in neck tension, headaches and red, watery eyes. For those who also suffer from presbyopia, a condition that adversely affects both short and long distance sight, there is the additional problem of choosing the right spectacles to facilitate working in a more relaxed manner.
Which spectacles are best for this application? Many people initially reach for their reading glasses when they have to do computer work. The door opens; your colleague is standing in the doorway and asks you a question. Now your glasses interfere with your longer range vision and you cannot see him/her clearly. At that moment, you might peer over the spectacle frame and tense up as well.
Universal-varifocals are not the perfect solution for the workplace either. They may allow you to see clearly at different distances, but the visual field for the near and medium range is often too small for prolonged close-up work and permanently strains the eyes. What to do?
Talk to your optometrist about enhanced reading spectacles with special varifocal lenses. There is an intelligent solution for continuously clear vision for short to intermediate distances, a solution that is specifically coordinated for the visual demands at the workplace. The combination of reading spectacles and varifocal lenses combines the different sight requirements of desk bound work.
