Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer glasses for the modern workspace

Your mom was almost right when she said not to sit too close to the TV. The modern version is true. We spend way too much time on computer screens and mobile devices for work and fun.

The light emitted from our screens has implications for a specific spectrum of light that causes eye strain, affects our sleep, and could have longer term effects on eye health.

Wearing your everyday glasses for your computer work is like wearing your hiking boots to the big dance. We can design eyewear to suit your visual and optical needs that are more functional and fashionable at the same time. Being more visually comfortable and productive during the workday will save you energy to enjoy your off time better.

What is Computer Vision Syndrome?

Computer Vision Syndrome, or CVS, is one of the most common complaints in today’s workplace. It consists of the issues that result from trying to see the computer optimally, like bending your neck to see over reading glasses

Symptoms of CVS:
  • eye fatigue
  • headaches
  • blurred vision
  • dry eyes
  • neck pain
  • shoulder pain

Comfortable. Protective. Productive.

See the difference (and feel it too) with computer glasses from Brill Eye Center.

Progressive lenses and reading glasses just don’t cut it in the workplace. These glasses can lead to unnatural sitting positions, like craning your neck up and down to see clearly, or the annoying task of having to take your reading glasses off every time you stand up from your desk.

With specialty lenses and thoughtful designs, our computer glasses are optimized to your specific work environment and offer fast, comfortable focusing without you having to move a muscle. And with more natural vision throughout the day, computer glasses help you leave the office feeling more relaxed and energetic, ready to tackle whatever the night brings.

Did you know?

Between 45 and 70 million people spend too much time looking at their screens and are at risk for developing computer vision syndrome.
