Computer Vision Care

Are you on a computer or digital device for more than an hour a day? Do you ever have dry eyes?

Eye fatigue? Blurriness? Burning eyes? Any other visual symptoms while on a computer?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we can help.

Home Remedies

Long hours on computers can make your eyes tired, dry, strained, make it difficult to focus and make you prone to headaches. A simple technique called the 20-20-20 rule can be helpful to minimize your symptoms. The 20-20-20 rule is all about giving your eyes a break! When working on a computer or digital device take a break every 20 minutes, by looking 20 feet away for about 20 seconds! All you need to do is to focus across the room and blink forcefully several times. This will remoisten the eyes and reduce end of the day discomfort.

Essilor Eyezen Lenses

Blue light from screens can be fatiguing and somewhat damaging to your eyes

Computer vision glasses with blue light filtering can reduce visual symptoms and make you more efficient and protect your eye health. Eyezen lenses have a blue blocker coating and two optical centers. The optical center is the clearest and easiest portion of a lens through which to focus. So by having a distance optical center at the top of the lens and a near optical center a little below, it makes your near work much more comfortable.

Make an appointment today so we can help relieve your computer vision symptoms.

Another way we can help is with Eyezen lenses. Essilor’s newest single vision lens helps reduce eye strain caused by close viewing of devices like cell phones and tablets. It also reduces exposure to Harmful Blue Light by its Smart Blue Filter!

Some of our staff members have these lenses and love them! Ask Kristy or Holly about their experience with them.


Blue light

What is Blue light? Blue light has a very short wavelength, and so produces a higher amount of energy. Studies suggest that, over time, exposure to high energy blue light could cause serious long-term damage to your eyes.

Here is a good article explaining Blue light

Don’t worry, we got you covered when it comes to blue light protection. Our opticians can help you pick what product works best for your daily needs to protect you from harmful blue light.
