The Benefits of Dedicated Computer Lenses

Many of us are experiencing neck and shoulder pain from working on a computer for countless hours.  This is especially prominent among people that wear progressive or bifocal lenses. This is because your progressives are general, all-purpose lenses that provide you vision for all viewing distances.  Just think – you have a specific area in your lenses to see the news ticker scrolling on the office T.V. 20 feet away, your colleague sitting across the room 10 feet away, the filing cabinet 5 feet away, the picture of your kids at the end of your desk 3 feet away, your computer 60 cm away (well, that is at least where it should be), your keyboard 40 cm away, your phone at 25 cm away, and everything in between! That is a lot of different tasks to squeeze into the 4cm of vertical lens area that you are looking through. The zone to view your computer through your general progressive lenses is only about 5mm in depth.  Yes, only 5mm, and is located just below your central gaze position, also known as the major reference point. To see your computer more clearly, you most likely have to tilt your head back. We can all handle this for a bit of time, but after a few hours, our necks and shoulders get tired and sore. This can lead to headaches, tight muscles, inflamed nerves, and eyestrain (known as asthenopia). Consider a pair of dedicated computer lenses designed specifically for vision while in indoor spaces or workstations. These lenses are typically designed to offer a wide field of visual clarity when working on screens at eye level, and offer a slight power boost for closer tasks, such as the keyboard and your phone. Your central view is now for your computer screen, so you don’t have to tilt your head up anymore for improved clarity, allowing for a more ergonomic, comfortable posture. Instead of having to squeeze all the viewing zones into the 4cm of vertical space typical in most frames, each lens is customized for your unique needs. Imagine that small computer zone that you have in your progressives gets stretched. Fewer viewing zones means each zone can occupy more space in the lens, providing wider fields of view. This will result in less physical fatigue, headaches, and improved productivity.   I particularly like the indoor line of Hoya lenses – tailored for different levels of near demand. They have an additional level of technology built into them to improve the visual experience called binocular harmonization technology (BHT). It makes it easier for your brain to process the different corrections, and therefore magnifications, needed between your right and left eye – resulting in very natural, synchronized binocular viewing. Combine this with their blue-blocking glare treatment called Recharge, and these lenses are sure to be your favorite lenses at the office, and another necessity, just like computers!
