Tinted Lenses In Glasses Can Help People Who Frequently Use Computers

We are very fortunate to live in an era where computers, android phones and tablets are a mainstay of our daily lives. We are equally as fortunate to live at a time where modern opticians, such as B & B Eyewear, have the technology to create glasses with tinted lenses that have been especially designed for computer use.

Different kinds of issues can occur when we spend a little too much time in front of a computer screen. Various kinds of eye-related problems related to computer use include digital eye strain, tired, dry, or red eyes, blurred vision, or headaches. This is the result of using digital devices for long periods of time.

Eyeglasses specifically designed for computer work can help to alleviate or prevent digital eyestrain. These are special-purpose eyeglasses. They can optimize your eyesight as you view digital screens. These glasses have been designed to reduce glare and increase contrast. This way it can maximize whatever you are viewing through the lenses. As a result, you would be able to look at a screen with fewer short and long-term negative effects.

Anti-Reflective (AR) Coating

Anti-reflective coating helps to reduce glare that is reflecting off computer screens and other light sources. Anti-reflective coating can easily be added to prescription glasses.

The quality of the AR coating used on lenses has improved over the years. In the past, the coating used could peel over time. Now, there have been improvements in the lens-making process.  The AR coating can now be ionized into the lens matrix. This type of coating will last the longest.

Color Tints

Some computer glasses have lenses with color tints that are designed to increase the contrast on the screen. The tint helps to filter out uncomfortable glare and help to make your eye muscles relax.

At B & B Eyewear, we have a wide range of tints for you to choose from.

Buying computer glasses with tinted lenses alone will not be the ultimate cure for all ailments associated with long hours on the computer. Other factors will include your visual abilities, amount of computer usage, your work environmental conditions, as well as your viewing habits.

Computer eye wear should be used to help reduce and prevent digital eye strain. This is not something to ignore. People tend to get accustomed to their eyes feeling tired after a long day at work and hence they just accept it. But you do not have to settle for this.

Consult with your eye doctor in order to find out if tinted computer glasses may be just the thing for you! Talk with your eye doctor about which color tint would be best for you and your lifestyle. After your appointment, stop by B & B Eyewear to drop off your prescription. We will have your new computer glasses for you within 7 to 10 business days. Thank you! We look forward to your visit.
