Computer Eyewear

Asthenia (eye strain) can occur when your eyes accomodate and converge at near distances for prolonged periods of time. Lenses can be specifically made, from your existing prescription, for your near and intermediate vision to help comfort your eyes from overstraining.

Blue Light Protection

Filtering the right amount of blue-violet light when viewing electronic devices has become increasingly important. Long term exposure to high energy visible light rays (HEVL) has been associated with retinal cell damage & age macular degeneration. A computerized test can determine the most suitable color.

UV Protection

Lenses should provide UVA & UVB protection. Prolonged exposure to these invisible rays can lead to ocular damage that may increase the risk of cataracts, macular degeneration and risk to the delicate skin around the eyes.

AR Coating

Improves day & nighttime vision by preventing scattered light from entering the eye. Eye & lens appearance improves dramatically by reducing annoying unsightly reflections due to lighting conditions. It is applied on test lenses when determining your eye exam prescription.
