How Prescription Glasses Increase Productivity and Eye Health
The main function of glasses is correcting vision. Without good vision, it’s impossible to perform most jobs productively. However, thanks to the eyewear technology available today, there are additional ways that eyewear can enhance your productivity.
In addition, you should be concerned about protecting your eyes from occupational hazards. We’re not talking about safety glasses, simply how certain lens options can reduce work related eye problems. Many of these enhancements depend on the options you choose when purchasing optical lens Here is how you can do this in two broad areas of employment:
An important productivity and eye health problem that affects many white-collar workers is computer vision syndrome (CVS). CVS is a condition caused by staring at digital screens for hours at a time. This fatigues parts of the eye associated with focus, as well as various muscles surrounding the eye. When you continually stare at digital screens, the eye’s components are either fixed or performing the same repeated movements. Symptoms include dry eyes, eyestrain, blurred vision, and double vision, headaches, and neck and shoulder pain.
In addition to fixated or repeated eye movement, the problem is also caused by glare from the room and the digital screen. Unlike reading printed text on paper, digital screens flicker, have harsh contrasts, and emit blue light that makes the eye work harder when focusing. It’s clear that the symptoms of CVS diminish your productivity.
Coping with CVS starts with varying your routine by looking away from your screen (and off into the distance) every 20 minutes for a minute of eye rest. You should also eliminate as many contributing factors to the problem as possible, such as glare and blue light emissions. The right choices in eyewear options will greatly reduce these factors. Here are two important choices:
- Anti-reflective coating. This prevents room backlighting glare from reflecting off your lens inner surface and into your eyes.
- Blue lens coating As the name suggests, this coating blocks blue light emissions from your screen.
Both coating options are available with prescription glasses.
