Staring at a computer screen is something that the majority of us do for several hours a day, but, like anything, if you do it too much it can have consequences. From eye strain to blurred vision, headaches, sore/itchy eyes, and much more, you might find that your eyes start to suffer after long periods of working or gaming. Luckily, there’s a simple solution that should start to make your life a lot easier. Here at 1001 Optical we’ve got a lot of options when it comes to effective (and cost-effective!) computer screen glasses.
Since you’re focusing on an object close to you, you could be forgiven for thinking that reading glasses might be the smart choice. However, these lenses are designed for much closer distances than you’d experience whilst looking at a computer screen, so you’d have to sit a lot closer than usual to your screen, and adopt an awkward and uncomfortable posture. Specialist computer glasses ensure that you can focus both on the screen, and around the room; depending on your needs/preferences. Even varifocals, while useful in most aspects of life, will cause you to sit with unnatural posture; which can put strain on your neck and shoulders, so it pays to spend a bit of time finding the necessary product.
If you’re looking for glasses for your computer, you might be surprised to hear that they can also be suitable for a range of other tasks. From reading, to watching TV, and even playing an instrument, these glasses have a variety of potential uses, and aren’t just limited to when you’re in front of your computer (despite what the name suggests!).
Since everyone’s eyes are different, there’s no singular solution when it comes to computer eyewear. This is why it’s essential to get an eye test from a trusted professional, so you can get a truly personalised prescription that meets your individual requirements. We’ll assess your needs, see what your current vision is like, and work with you to devise the perfect solution; whether you need them for work or you’re after some gaming glasses to maintain concentration when it matters.
While performance is a big consideration when choosing the appropriate computer glasses, it’s also important that you like the look and feel of your new spectacles. Choosing an appropriate style and shape isn’t hard here at 1001 Optical, since we’ve got a wide range of products to choose from at prices that you’ll love! Whether you want a simple yet effective pair, or you’ve got your eyes on a stylish designer model, we’re sure you’ll find some computer eyewear that meets your personal requirements.
