As we age our bodies change in many ways, while it sure does not seem fair this is just a fact of life that we have to learn to live with. But in some cases the more we embrace it the easier it can be, and heck we may as well see if we can’t make the most of to get the most out of our years.
One of the things most people will notice in their mid-forties is their eyes begin to get tired more easily and they start to hold the menu further away from their face when ordering at a restaurant. These are tell-tale signs that you are in need of reading glasses. While some people in the name of either vanity or maybe practicality try to put off wearing reading glasses there are some studies that indicate that by wearing them sooner you ease the strain on the eyes and thus slow down the aging process and the resulting need of higher power reading glasses.
So instead of waiting until they need a full 1.00 power pair of reading glasses many people are starting to wear lower power reading glasses, starting at .50 magnification and .75 magnification reading glasses. If you are starting to see things a little fuzzy or squinting a bit to see your screen or favorite book maybe it is time to consider a pair of our lightweight low power reading glasses. That little bit of magnification can help, especially if you need computer readers as our low power readers have blue light filtering to protect your eyes from harmful blue light and the sleep deprivation that screen time can cause. In fact there is a whole genre of what is called “gamer glasses” as computer game players are wearing these low magnification glasses with blue light filtering to both protect their eyes and give them a slight enhancement of the screen, and maybe a slight edge up on the competition!
If you are unsure check with your eye doctor as Optometrists are known to prescribe low power reading glasses to people with computer vision syndrome. This condition is experienced with dry eyes and more eye-strain symptoms, in some cases when the vision itself is still completely clear. In these cases low power readers can dramatically relieve symptoms from the first moment you put them on, and I know as I am wearing mine right now.
Our low power computer reading glasses come in our most popular Visualites 8 compression mount frame. This lightweight flexible frame is perfect for every day wear. They also come with the popular tube case so you can keep your low power readers with you at all times without worrying about breaking them in your purse or in your pocket. They block approximately 55% of the 400-440nm range of Blue Light which is considered the optimal amount of penetration as some blue light is healthy for your eyes.
In this modern era young people can be on their computer for exceedingly large amounts of time, these glasses can protect their eyes from computer screens while enhancing their vision making them ideal for people of all ages.
So if you have your Iphone set to a large font it is clear that after years of focusing on books and screens your eyes ability to focus on what’s close may have weakened. Give our new low power computer readers a shot and see if they not only allow you to focus more clearly but also ease the symptoms of computer vision syndrome.
