Computer Reading: Tweaks to Fine Tune Sharpness

Just a few tweaks to your reading environment will put you in your comfort zone.

  • Fine tune for sharpness by positioning your screen, seat or reading material a little closer or further away.

Once you've determined the reading glasses lens power that's best for you, adjusting your reading distance for your best, most comfortable position will also set your sweet spot of best vision.

  •  Take note magnification is affected by wearing position which increases as you move your readers away from your eyes.

If you like to wear your readers low on your nose, customary of half-frame readers, choose your lens power mindful of this and lower your lens power slightly.

  •   Control glare by redirecting window lighting upward, dim ceiling lights, check monitor angle + settings.

Glare has always been a problem for computer-related work because of the reflective nature of monitors.  Glare disrupts the visual pathways to your brain where vision takes place creating strained vision - glare causes your eyes to work extra hard so tackle it!

  • No two heads are alike.

Have a qualified optician adjust your readers for your most comfortable fit. Many times a simple adjustment to the temples, nose pads or the frame itself will make a huge difference in your comfort, in wear and in vision.
