Computer glasses can not only help reduce eyestrain but they also reduce neck pain at your desk. Numerous factors need to be addressed to maximize your comfort and effectiveness while working at the computer. Computer related eyestrain is especially common for those approaching their 50s and above.
When working at our computer we often find ourselves raising our chin to make the monitor clear. This puts our neck in a very bad, uncomfortable position. Everyone that experiences neck pain should see their eye doctor about computer glasses. A few minutes to read a quick email is not a problem, however the longer you spend in this position the worse it is for your eyes, your posture and your neck. Computer glasses place your monitor in the proper focus allowing you to look directly at the monitor while still allowing you to view reading material at a normal reading distance.
Another important consideration while working at the computer is your blinking. When we work at the computer we become so engrossed in what we are doing that our blink rate goes down which increases the symptoms of dry eye syndrome. The video below gives a good summary of computer vision syndrome and computer glasses.
