Do you spend a lot of time looking at screens? Do your eyes feel tired more often than not? You may spend a lot of time looking at computers or working on your laptop.

With work or watching TV, your eyes can get tired. If you are spending this much time looking at a computer screen you could be staring or squinting for hours.

Your eyes might feel fatigued or dry by the time you are done or halfway through. A great way to help your eyes could be computer vision glasses. Keep reading to find out if computer vision glasses are worth it!

What do computer vision glasses do?

Computer vision glasses can help you see better if you spend a lot of time looking at computer screens. More importantly, they can help block or filter blue light.

Blue light can impact your vision even if you don’t realize it!

What are some signs that you might need computer vision glasses?

If you spend a lot of time in front of computers, you might notice your vision changing. Some of these changes include blurry vision, tired eyes, double vision, dry eyes, irritation, redness, and eye twitching.

Because you’re spending so much time sitting down, you may develop headaches or neck and shoulder pain. Computer vision glasses can help resolve these problems, so you can concentrate on what you are doing. This is especially important if you are working.

Is it common to have vision problems from looking at computer screens?

Yes! Most adults spend hours looking at a computer screen or other screens. It’s more common to have a vision issue from looking at a screen or a digital device.

How do computer glasses work?

Glasses designed for looking at screens for long periods of time are treated with special coverings. Treatment will block or cover blue light.

A well-known covering is anti-reflective coverings. Anti-reflective coatings remove reflections from both sides of the lens. This is what causes eye strain.

Do you need a prescription to get computer vision glasses?

No, if you only need computer vision glasses, you do not need a prescription. If you have an eyeglasses prescription, then you need a prescription. This is so you can get a pair of computer vision glasses that have the correct prescription and protective coating.

Are you thinking about getting computer vision glasses?

If you are thinking about getting computer vision glasses, please talk with your eye doctor. They will be able to help you select the right pair for your vision needs.

Here at Complete EyeCare West, we offer computer vision glasses in our optical shop. They are a specific type of prescription glasses designed for looking at computer screens for a long period of time.
