How To Prevent Computer Eye Strain

by admin on February 13, 2012

Millions of people around the world suffer from computer vision syndrome without ever being aware of it. It’s no surprise people are constantly complaining of computer eye strain, when even the average person spends 4-6 hours a day on a computer.

If you’re having daily problems with headaches, red-eye, neck pain, eye fatigue, blurred vision, or dry eyes, you are probably suffering from eye strain & computer vision syndrome. Since most people aren’t even aware of what computer vision syndrome is, or the fact that they’re experiencing eye-strain on a daily basis, they don’t realize that there is a quick and easy solution to their problems.

What Causes Computer Eye Strain?

There are a lot of factors that can be attributed to computer eye strain. One of the leading causes of computer eye strain is that your eyes can’t focus on the pixels in a computer monitor as easy as they would be able to focus on any traditional “real” object. While the science behind it is complex, your eyes constantly have to readjust themselves to maintain proper focus, resulting in fatigue, stress, and strained eyes.

In addition to problems caused by focusing on monitors, additional eye strain can be caused by focusing on one object for an extended period of time, glare, low contrast, poor posture, and reduced blinking rate, all of which are associated with standard office and computer work.

How can I prevent eye strain if I’m on the computer all the time?

Computer Eyeglasses are the easiest full solution to preventing eyestrain. Computer glasses contain an anti-glare coating, a slight tint, and a built-in correction to the focusing problems people experience when looking at pixels on a computer monitor. Computer glasses can be stylish, and are great for anybody who spends a frequent portion of their day in front of a computer.

More than just computer glasses, remembering to blink frequently, taking frequent breaks (10-15 minutes), and occasionally looking away from the monitor to focus on items in the distance can help relieve & prevent eye strain & computer vision syndrome.

For temporary relief, Computer Eye Drops can alleviate eye irritation caused by focusing on a monitor for an extended period of time.

How Do Computer Glasses Work?

Computer glasses fix the focus distance for your eyes on a monitor by optimizing the vision for 20-26 inches away from your eyes. Since this distance sits between “short” sight and “distance” viewing, most eyeglasses and contacts do not accomodate for this viewing length by nature. Computer glasses can fix this problem by adjusting the focal point to the “right” distance, resulting in a decreased amount of eye strain.

The tint added to computer glasses prevents glare, but also prevents irritating blue light coming from both monitors as well as fluorescent lights that is often associated with computer vision syndrome.

AC Lens carries a variety of computer eye glasses, in addition to computer eye relief drops online at highly affordable prices.
