The primary reason for neck and back aches among computer users is
the awkward posture used by eyeglass wearers to view their computer
monitors. Traditional eyeglasses make it more difficult for the wearer
to see things both close up and at an arm’s length - the typical
distance to the monitor - without moving to bring the monitor into
focus. Do these examples sound familiar?:
- You wear bifocals and tilt your neck back to see through the
bifocal segment, and then bend forward to bring the monitor into focus.
- You wear trifocal or progressives lenses. You find they do
not provide a large enough intermediate viewing area for comfortable,
extended viewing of the monitor.
- Is your computer monitor out of focus?
Our Computer Clip-Ons for prescription eyewear adds intermediate
correction to the top of your glasses for clear viewing of your
monitor. They flip up out of the way, or remove easily when you don’t
Computer Clip-Ons help you focus on
objects that are 30" to 36" away (like your computer screen). Your
monitor is out of the range of reading lenses, and it requires a
different lens power than your reading glasses. Your computer lens
power is approximately one-half of your reading lens power. Although
you do not need a prescription for computer glasses, it is always a
good idea to ask your eye doctor to measure for the correct power.
