Do you spend much of your day sitting in front of a computer or do you have hobbies or other work that require you to focus at arms length? Do you ever experience shoulder and neck pain, develop headaches or experience eye strain from doing these activities for a prolonged amount of time. Do you wear progressive lenses and find it difficult to hold your head in just the right position to see clearly during these activities?
If so, there are lenses designed specifically to help you with these tasks. These lenses are commonly referred to as “computer lenses” as initially many people used them while working on their computers.
However, these lenses are also ideal for a multitude of near and intermediate activities such as music performance, art, and other jobs or hobbies by making it easier for your eyes to focus and help relieve eye strain often experienced during these tasks. They also help alleviate neck and shoulder pain by allowing a more natural and relaxed posture.
Computer lenses are an excellent choice in a second pair of glasses for tasks that demand a long period of intermediate vision, but they are not intended to replace your everyday eyewear.
