New, affordable, customised computer reading glasses help relieve eye strain and neck pain at the computer. Computer work is more visually demanding than other standard office tasks like reading printed documents clip-on glasses.
Computer pixels are round and difficult for the eyes to focus on, unlike ink and paper writing. To make matters worse, with bifocals, trifocals and progressive lenses you cannot read the computer screen without lifting your chin. Eye fatigue from computer work is the most common complaint in the office.
Vision problems are a very common complaint of multifocals wearers who work at the computer. The computer monitor is usually at eye level and at a medium distance. Due to the optical limitations of multifocal lenses, this is a dilemma for the ophthalmologist as it is virtually impossible to prescribe a single pair of glasses that will meet all our visual requirements and satisfy the visual ergonomic needs of the computer user.
Ideally, the corrective power needed for viewing a computer screen, which is usually at eye level and above, should be in the upper half of the computer user’s prescription glasses, not the lower half. You can ask your optician for special computer and reading glasses, or you can have a new pair of custom-made progressive glasses made to fit over your current bifocals or progressive glasses.
The new clip-on computer reading glasses solve this common problem at a fraction of the cost of a new pair of computer glasses by clipping onto the top of your existing glasses and giving you an extremely wide, clear optical zone for distance computer viewing. Yes, over your existing bifocals, trifocals or Progressive “no-line” bifocals.
Using these new, innovative, customised digital clip-on glasses to view the computer screen eliminates the repetitive head raising and lowering that causes neck strain when bifocals/progressives are used improperly. Lifting your head and chin as you move your body closer to the screen is just bad for ergonomics. If you have a great ergonomic chair that you use at the computer, but you have to move forward in your chair to see the screen well, then what you have is just an expensive stool! You no longer have proper back support. Neck and lumbar pain are a feast for chiropractors and doctors.
With clip-on computer reading glasses, you can instantly benefit from a more natural head and neck posture. You no longer have to suffer the painful effects on your neck, shoulders and upper back! What makes these new customised clip-on glasses better than similar looking devices?
The new computer reading clips are an ergonomically designed clip-on lens attachment for prescription glasses in shape, size, optical centring, lens material, lens coating and thickness and weight. Here are the advantages:
1. the new clip-on is made of an acrylic material that has been shown to have better light transmission than traditional polycarbonate clip-on lenses.
2. the surface of the acrylic lenses is more scratch resistant than that of other polycarbonate clip-on lenses currently on the market.
3. the optical centration or interpupillary distance (also called PD) position results in less eye motor strain associated with eye convergence when viewing objects at close range, and reduces the additional strain of viewing a computer screen for extended periods of time compared to existing computer lenses that typically have an optical centration of 70mm or more.
4. The uniquely smaller eye size, shape and thickness of the new clip design (52 mm x 26 mm) allows for easier attachment to the wearer’s glasses. The new size and thickness of the lenses shifts the centre of gravity of the glasses outwards to minimise the weight of the visual aid and reduce the effects of gravity pulling the glasses onto the nose.
5. unique to this new clip-on is the added value of a glare-free anti-reflective coating that reduces annoying glare and reflections. It has been scientifically proven that a glare-free coating reduces visual stress and improves the wearer’s performance when working at a computer for long periods of time (2 or more hours per day).
6. digitally engineered optics give this newly developed clip-on an undistorted field of view across the entire width of the lens to reduce wearing
