Are you suffering from eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes and neck & shoulder pain? Do you spend more than two hours in a day in front of the computer screen? If so, then the chances are that you might be suffering from computer vision syndrome.
If you spend more than two hours a day in front of your computer then you are at increased risk of Computer Vision Syndrome. Majority of people spend most, if not all of their work day viewing a computer display. Thus their eyes have already been tired out, displaying symptoms of CVS even before they go home and start using their smart phone or laptop.In today’s progressively tech-oriented world, days in which a person spends only 2 hours at a computer are all but extinct.
Experts say that working on a computer requires your eyes to work in ways that other activities don’t. According to Gary Heiting, a renowned optometrist, “The problem with computer work is twofold; during computer use our eyes not only have to stay focused but also have to stay properly converged for longer period of time”.
Computer Vision Syndrome is a very hazardous problem. But, there are many ways to combat the effects of CVS.
1. Allow your muscles to take rest after every 20 minutes of viewing the computer screen and look away at objects that are at least 20 feet away. This is beneficial in changing the eye’s focal length and reducing strain.
2. Whenever your eyes feel strained, cup them and relax for a minute. This exercise will definitely help to ease the strain on tired eyes.
3. Just like athletes use specialized safety equipment for different sports, a pair of specifically designed computer glasses is a must for someone who may be at risk of long term vision damage from CVS-related symptoms. Usually, people under 40 wear glasses to correct their distance vision while people who are above 40 use glasses to correct the onset of a condition known as presbyopia – the normal age-related loss of near-focusing ability.
Computer glasses has anti- reflective coating that eliminates the reflection of light from eyeglass lenses, allowing light to pass through the lenses and enter the eye, therefore providing a clearer vision. The visual benefits of lenses with anti-reflective coating include sharper vision with little glare while driving at night and greater comfort during prolonged computer use. Moreover, AR coating also make eyeglasses nearly invisible and thus allow others to see your eyes clearly.
Global Eyeglasses has recently acquired a state-of-the-art optical coating machine, , Orion 40T. This technologically advanced machine allows antireflective coating on computer glasses and various other glasses with high uniformity. Anti-reflective coating improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your eyeglasses. Further, at Global Eyeglasses you will find an enormous variety of frames that will enhance your look. Orion 40T.

There are different type of computer glasses available depending upon the wearer needs and age. These can be bifocals, trifocals or occupational progressive lenses. Most computer glasses cause blurred or limited distance vision and should not be worn for any other task that requires clear vision. Bifocal lenses are the customized lenses that can be used both for computer work as well as other tasks. For people with major problem of presbyopia, special-purpose bifocals are a good option. Trifocal lenses are much similar to bifocals, but with an additional segment for intermediate vision above the reading section and thus, provide an added comfort in viewing the computer screen.
Healthy eyes are very important for life and proper eye care is the key for better health.Over-straining not only causes temporary discomfort, but also leads to long term damage to your eyes. So take proper care of your eye as a part of your daily regimen to have healthy eyes and happy life.
