I wear a progressive lens but I still get eyestrain at my computer. What should I do?
Progressive lenses, or lenses that have a “progression” of powers from the top of the lens to the bottom, are great. They are the most versatile lens option on the market and they keep getting better and better.
However, they do have one major limitation. The area of the lens that is designed for your computer, is often pretty small. This forces you to have to constantly move your chin up and down and side to side to find that sweet spot to maintain clear vision at the computer.
Thankfully, there is a perfect solution. Often called the “computer lens”, this lens takes the area of the lens designed for the computer and expands it to cover the entire top of the lens. So you will be able to see clearly at your computer or laptop without having to move your head around to find that sweet spot. No more eyestrain and no more neck strain!
