More about computer eyestrain

Posted on June 17, 2017 by Renee Bachner | 0 comments

In the past few years the way we do work, communicate, entertain, keep ourselves informed and just about everything else has almost completely shifted to the computer or some version of it.  If we are not on our phones we are on our computers or other related devices so it only stands to reason that we all have some sort of eyestrain…no surprise.

Working at computers can cause many eye-related symptoms such as eyestrain, dry eyes, headache, fatigue, difficulty focusing, blurred vision, and shoulder and neck pain. Taking frequent breaks will help reduce computer eyestrain but for many people that is not a realistic option.  Making adjustments to your work environment and optimizing computer monitor settings will also help.  It you’re not getting any relief from those changes then it’s time to look into getting computer reading glasses.  In order for your computer reading glasses to really help you it's important to determine your correct lens strength for the specific distance you intend to use your computer glasses. Sometimes you can figure it out on your own. I can also help you. Just email me and I will get back to you asap. An eye exam is usually best.

Quality anti-glare coatings reduce eyestrain by eliminating surface reflections and providing additional eye protection from computer-type devices and other light sources.  Blue light blocking glasses have recently been introduced to help diminish computer-related issues but further research is still needed.  One thing is for certain, quality optical lenses in your computer reading glasses will noticeably reduce your eyestrain and discomfort.
