Computer Glasses

Computer technology continues to advance and it seems like everybody, young and old, uses a device for some activity or another.  There are plenty of us who use technology all day long while at work and even more in our homes.  Computer work causes eye strain, fatigue and in some cases headaches too.  It is becoming such a big deal the American Medical Association now recognizes Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) as a legitimate condition. And for those who suffer from any level of CVS, Midwest Eye Associates has lenses to help reduce those symptoms!  

Computer glasses are specialty eyeglasses made specifically to address the unique visual needs of extended computer and smartphone use. To address these needs, computer glasses are made completely differently, in a number of important ways, from regular eyeglasses and reading glasses. These significant differences are what make computer glasses absolutely essential for maintaining both your short term visual comfort and long term visual health as you work and play in a world increasingly dominated by computers and smartphones.
To begin explaining the benefits of computer glasses, it is important to point out that computer screens are generally positioned around 20-26 inches from your eyes. This is what eyecare professionals call your “intermediate” zone of vision. Unfortunately, traditional eyeglasses are not made in a way that is conducive to intermediate viewing of the type required by computer work, and this is what causes CVS.

To solve this problem, we especially recommend CompuClear lenses, which are designed specifically to reduce eye strain and discomfort for people who spend extended time in front of a computer and in the “intermediate” zone.  They are similar to a progressive or no-line bifocals, but the difference is they provide a larger intermediate area for work on computers, tablets, pads, etc. The lenses include no-glare treatment to offset any poor lighting conditions.
