Presbyopia is a condition that adversely affects both short and long distance sight in people over 40. Here are ways to see clearly in front of the computer.
Presbyopia is a condition that adversely affects both short and long distance sight in people over 40. And with it comes the added challenge of choosing the right eyeglasses for working in a more relaxed manner where you interchange between documents, the computer screen and focusing on people or things further away.
Reading glasses are not ideal for computer work because, if, for any reason, you need to look further away from the screen to talk to a colleague, they go out of focus. Neither are standard progressive lenses which may allow you to see clearly at all distances, but the visual field for mid-range work (such as looking at a computer screen) is often too small for prolonged close-up work and strains the eyes.
The solution? Carl Zeiss Vision recommends enhanced reading or computer lenses that are designed to deal with these challenges better. Ask your eye-care professional about them and your eyes will thank you!
