If so, you may be suffering from Digital Eye Strain.
Mt Tam Optometric Center can provide you a customized eyeglass design that can help your eyes stay comfortable at a computer and in other up-close activities: the ZEISS Officelens.
The right tool for the task.
Digital Eye Strain is often the result of wearing lenses with inadequate intermediate vision, which is vital for computer work. Digital Eye Strain results not only in eye problems but can also impact other parts of the body.
Reading Lenses offer no intermediate vision.
Result: Wearers lean in toward the screen to see clearly, creating an unnecessary strain to neck and back
General-purpose Progressive Lenses offer a narrow intermediate located below eye level.
Result: Wearers lift their heads to view the screen, causing a strained neck and shoulder muscles.
Unlike reading lenses or ordinary progressives, the ZEISS Officelens is designed specifically to solve this problem by letting you personalize your vision based on your needs. Our opticians at Mt Tam Optometric Center like to describe it as being able to choose between 2, 3 or 4 lenses in your eyeglasses.
The “Officelens Book” is like having two lenses, the bottom one is focused at the reading distance and the top one is focused at the computer distance.
The “Officelens Desk” is like having three lenses, the bottom one is focused at the reading distance, the middle one is focused at the computer distance, and the top one is focused five to six feet out so you can recognize who is sitting across the table or desk from you.
The “Officelens Room” is like having four lenses, the bottom one is focused at the reading distance, the next one up is focused at the computer distance, followed by one that is focused five to six feet out. The top lens is focused farther out so you can see a presentation in a moderately sized room or recognize somebody walking towards your office space.
The Zeiss Officelens is not just for the office. It can provide clearer, more comfortable vision for many other near and intermediate activities like cooking, gardening, gaming, etc.
We can help you choose which of these working distance options is right for you. Contact us at Mt Tam Optometric Center and let us make your life easier. Put an end to Digital Eye Strain and get clear, relaxed vision all day long.
