Computer Vision Syndrome

Here are some ways to reduce your symptoms of Digital Eye Strain

Working for long hours on digital devices can cause eye strain, dry eyes, blurred vision and headaches. These eye-related problems are collectively known as Digital Eye Strain. And the number of people experiencing these problems continues to increase with people across age groups spending more time on the screens.

If you’re having any symptoms related to digital eye strain, here are some ways you can help your eyes. 

Buy computer glasses!

Computer glasses are glasses modified to help you view objects at an intermediate distance from your eye, especially your computer screen. They help your eyes focus on the screen and keyboard, thus reducing your eye strain. Computer glasses have prescriptions different from single-vision, bifocal, trifocal, and multifocal lenses. Thus, it is best if you go in for an eye test and get a prescription for a pair of computer glasses instead of buying a pair over-the-counter.

If you already wear prescription glasses, you can get a pair of computer glasses specifically for your work. But, keep in mind that these glasses are best if not used for activities like reading and driving.

For computer glasses, you should schedule an eye test with us at one of the Specscart stores in Manchester. With the best delivery and dispatch services, Specscart helps you with everything from prescriptions to delivery. Another reminder before your eye test, try and measure the distance between your computer. This can help you get glasses specifically for that distance.

If you have already been diagnosed with presbyopia and wear progressives, you can opt for a pair of occupational progressives. These computer glasses are optimized for viewing objects at nearby and intermediate distances. This means they are comfortable for reading as well as working on a computer.

Although computer glasses are made to reduce symptoms of CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome), they may not benefit everyone. That’s why we recommend you to buy yourself a pair of computer glasses from Specscart. Because we allow customers to return their glasses until one month from the buy. So, if computer glasses don’t reduce your symptoms, you can simply return them with no questions asked.

Glare from computer screens can also cause digital eye strain and if you’re keen on getting yourself computer glasses, anti-glare and anti-reflection lens coatings are a must.

And yes, Specscart does these lens coatings for you without any extra cost.

Our fully loaded lenses come with scratch-resistant, impact-resistant, anti-glare and anti-reflection coatings.

Get blue light blocking glasses with blue light filters

Although blue light doesn’t have a significant effect on your retina, it can disrupt your sleep cycle. So, to prevent screens from negatively impacting your sleep, a blue light protection coating on your computer glasses is an excellent idea. Not only this, but you can also try using blue light filters for all your digital devices. Filters for your computer, laptop, and phone screens work great as do the blue light filtering apps on your phone!

Computer glasses with blue light protection are available at Specscart. 

Change your practices and your workspace

Although computer glasses make working on computers easier, they won’t help you reduce your eye strain symptoms overnight. This is why you need to incorporate a certain few things in your daily lifestyle that can help with Computer vision syndrome (CVS). First of all, follow the 20-20-20 rule, which means that after working for 20 minutes on your computer, look at something that is more than 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Another thing you should do is lubricate your eyes often and don’t forget to blink.

Optimizing your workspace according to ergonomics and reducing your computer hours will also help in reducing the symptoms.

Whether you’re a freelancer, a gamer, or a full-time employee, computer glasses can help. Choose from a range of frames for your blue light blocking glasses and buy glasses online from Specscart! Because shopping online was never this easy!
