Get Computer Eye Strain Glasses – It’s Bigger Than Carpal Tunnel and Trigger Finger Combined

Computer eye strain glasses aka computer vision glasses aka digital performance eyewear are all names for the same thing – glasses for computer use.

Why do we need special glasses for computer use?

Computer related vision problems were the number one office complaint in the US for the last three years (National Safety Management Society).

CVS is three and a half times more common than Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. 7 out of 10 Americans will experience the symptoms of CVS compared to the 20 percent of computer users who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome according to the National Safety Management Society.

CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome) is a repetitive stress condition caused by focusing the eyes on a computer display for uninterrupted periods of time. Even in cases when a computer worker’s vision correction is only slightly off, productivity and accuracy at the computer suffer. And as the day progresses, these losses increase.

Currently most public and professional attention goes towards musculoskeletal disorders such as wrist problems (e.g., Carpal Tunnel Syndrome), bursitis, muscle strains (e.g., neck tension syndrome), tendon disorders (e.g., de Quervain’s disease), and tenosynovitis (e.g., trigger finger), and how to avoid them. Computer vision problems, although much more widespread, are still being minimized in the main. This may be because they are less chronic in the short to medium term at least. The good news is that the symptoms are remedied fairly simply and prevented from re-occurrence by the same remedy.

So, what exactly are computer eye strain glasses?

Eyewear that relaxes the ocular muscles that strain to view text and images at close distances. They improve eye focus, reduce glare, condition and shift the color spectrum, and block artificial/reflective light. Genuine digital eyewear treats all the symptoms of CVS and helps prevent them re-occurring.

Caution: effective computer glasses have technology and provenance behind them. They are not cheap sunglasses repackaged and re-sold for $10-$20.

Is there a better name than this for them?

Yes – digital performance eyewear

Will reading glasses work at the computer?

No, unfortunately. Reading glasses correct Near vision zone only (14 to 16 inches from your eyes). Digital interaction happens primarily in the Intermediate vision zone (arms length, 20 to 24 inches from your eyes). Multifocals correct the Distance zone and the Near zone but not the Intermediate. Even glasses that do correct the Intermediate zone have only a small portion for the Intermediate zone, e.g. trifocals, which is not nearly large enough for comfortable computer work.

Computer glasses can make a world of difference in your comfort while using a computer. Not only do they correct blurred vision, but they also relieve symptoms caused by struggling to focus, such as headaches, eyestrain, tired eyes, and burning.

Do computer eyeglasses look like safety glasses?

No, or at least not if you get them from a reputable source. Genuine digital eyewear incorporates leading-edge design with ultra-high-quality build and a wide variety of styles and colors.

If you’re tired of computer eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and neck/back pain then look at to stop frying your eyes. Get eye equipment that can protect you AND help you to be more productive.
