many of us spend so much time on computers now for work and certainly for play
or hobbies. The lenses I am wearing are
called Digitime from Essilor. They are
great as the entire top part of the lens is good for the computer, so you get a large
area to see through. To get your best vision and widest viewing area, we need to take a few extra measurements. Since everyone's computer is at different distances these measurement are critical. The bottom portion is for the up close or
reading distance. They work great.
course, like many things there are different ways to look after this up-close
challenge. We could also use a bifocal
system with a definite line doing the same thing as the digitime computer
lens. Above the line is the computer
distance and below is the reading distance.
Or of course we can do just one power throughout the lens focused at
whichever distance you require. The down
side with this lens is that is will only work at one distance! Meaning that if we make the computer screen
clear chances are that the up-close distance is fuzzy. Vice versa if we make the reading clear then
the computer is probably a little fuzzy.
That’s where the true computer lens option is better and more versatile.
news…. You can use them for more than just the computer. I just traded houses and ended doing some painting in the new house. So, cutting
in the paint at the ceiling is so much easier because the top of the computer
lenses is focused at that arm’s length distance. Instead of doing some crazy yoga position to
see it clear with my everyday progressive, I use the computer glasses.
other hobbies are easier too with these.
Changing a ceiling light bulb too. Plumbing in tight spaces is easier
too! The list is endless as to what you can use them for.
always if we can help with your vision challenges! Come see us or call 403-526-2020.
