  • Bring Technology into Focus with Computer Glasses

    Our offices specialize in the customization of progressive lenses, as well as computer progressive lenses. These lenses are designed especially for those people doing more than four hours of computer work per day. If you find yourself having difficulty with your vision either while on the computer or at the end of the day, be sure to ask our friendly staff if computer-vision progressives are right for you.

    Widespread use of computing technology and electronic devices has caused us to develop symptoms of Visual Fatigue Syndrome (VFS) or Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). This means eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and neck pain. Specialized computer glasses (also known as anti-fatigue eyewear) will relieve these symptoms and provide clear, comfortable vision for prolonged computer use and other activities.  

    Computer glasses have visual zones tailored to the movements of your eyes when you are working at your computer. They can also be individualized to meet your own personal requirements. Tiny points of detail can influence the quality of vision provided by your new glasses.  The more exact these processes are, the faster you will adapt to your new glasses. These glasses offer a very large field of vision at close and intermediate distances (between 2' to 12').

    Computer glasses for your laptop will differ from prescription for a tablet or a desktop with a large display.  Our goal is to make sure our patients enjoy optimum vision in precisely the range of vision work requires. Your head and neck remain in a natural, relaxed position the whole day long.

    We all wear glasses to correct some kind of vision problem.  But not all glasses are right for all situations. If you wear prescription glasses, we are pretty sure you cannot use the same ones for driving, reading books or working on your computer.  Glasses often have the wrong focal point for computer use or are ill-suited for computer use. 

    If you're using bifocals or progressive lenses, you may also suffer muscle strain as you position your neck to use the narrow "middle band" within your prescription. Wohl Optics can have multifocals made so you have more space allotted for your computer distance.  Many patients prefer single-vision eyeglasses specifically prescribed for computer work.  Others prefer bifocals customized for computer and desk work.

    Lens adjustments might include a larger-than-normal reading zone that is placed higher in the lens to eliminate head-bobbing. For people with more advanced presbyopia, special-purpose bifocals may be a good option. The top part of the lens is for using a computer i.e., intermediate vision and the bottom part has added magnification for reading or using a cell phone.

    For maximum viewing comfort, the lenses of your computer glasses should include anti-reflective coating. With this anti-glare treatment, anti-reflective (AR) coatings eliminate reflections of light from the front and back surfaces of your lenses that will cause eye strain and fatigue.

    Computer glasses can take several forms; that is why you have Wohl Optics.  We are here to help you find the right pair of computer glasses for your everyday workplace needs.  Stop the eye, neck and back strain. Take care of your vision.

  • Are You at Risk for Computer Eye Strain?

    Are you at risk for computer eye strain?  Have you become accustomed to eyestrain? How about that shoulder pain you have after spending 8 hours on a computer?

    Computer screens are everywhere! Whether it is the screen of your desktop at office…. or the screen of your laptop sitting on your lap or your tablet computer … or the screen of your television … or the screen of your mobile phone.  Screens are everywhere…. you cannot possibly escape them even if you wanted to. And do you know that our eyes aren’t even built to stare at screens all day long.

    Eyes become strained and irritated throughout your work day. Computer Vision Syndrome results from the high visual demands of computer work. This vision condition is caused by staring at a computer screen for long periods of time without  proper eye protection.

    We suggest the 20-20-20 rule.  For every 20 minutes of using your device, take a 20-second eye break and look at something beyond 20 feet.  If you follow the 20-20-20 Rule, you’ll alleviate stress and potential damage to your eyes.
