Computer Glasses

March 25, 2010 - Rodney Smith

This space has addressed the specific problems that computer screens can have on our vision. And I am a big believer in glasses just for the computer. And usually I start with a single vision lens set to focus at the distance of the computer.

However, sometimes that does not work for everybody. This is often because the vision correction you need to see your keyboard is not the same as the correction you need to see the monitor. Another solution is reading glasses with a progressive lens. This means that the top part of the lens is set for what is considered an intermediate distance- like the computer screen- while the bottom part is set closer- like where the keyboard would be.

Generally, I prefer single vision glasses for the computer. But that does not work for everybody, so it is nice to know that there are different options.
