Crizal Prevencia Lenses Can Help Protect Your Eyes At Work
Do you spend a lot of timing looking at a computer screen each day? Modern electronic devices can damage your eyes.
Fortunately, we offer the latest technology to help protect your eyes. We’d like to introduce you to Crizal Prevencia lenses.
About Blue-Violet Light
You’ve probably heard about the harm UV light can do to your eyes. But have you ever heard of the dangers of blue-violet light? This is another band of the light spectrum that can damage vision, particularly the retinal cells, which in time can lead to AMD and vision loss. Blue-violet light is becoming ever more common in our lives, through our use of tablets, computers, and smartphones.
What are Crizal Prevencia Lenses?
These lenses are specially designed to deflect harmful blue-violet light by 20%. In addition, they can reduce glare, lessening the eyestrain caused by staring at a screen for long periods of time.
Adjust Your Workspace
Adjust your chair and monitor position so your eyes are about 24 inches away from the screen.
Position your monitor so there is no glare from windows, reflective walls, or other light sources.
Adjust screen brightness, contrast, and text size. Your monitor should be about the same brightness as your surrounding workspace.
Tired eyes can lead to headaches, fatigue and decreased productivity. Staring at a computer screen also decreases your blinking rate, and the completeness of each blink! Remember:
The 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, focus on something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
Now we know this is impossible to remember… So, set a repeating timer alarm on your smartphone for every 20 minutes. When the timer goes off, perform ten slow, complete blinks while looking at something at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Even close your eyes for 10–20 seconds. This gives your eyes a chance to rest and refocus. If you still have problems with irritation, headaches, and/or fatigue, speak with us about additional solutions.
