What Is Digital Eyestrain?

Did you know that nearly 9 out of 10 people who experience Digital Eye Strain spend 2 or more hours each day using devices*?

* The Vision Council, Eye Strain Report 2016, USA

The use of digital technology demands the utmost from our eyes. On average, we look at our smartphones, tablets or TV screens for almost five hours every day. And we glance at our mobile phones as many as 80 times a day! And these figures are set to rise in the future.

In just a fraction of a second, our eyes have to move between far and near: from viewing something in the distance to small displays, tiny fonts and tightly packed information –and then back again. This places extreme strain on the eye which have to constantly re-adapt to ensure that what we see is clearly focused. Headache and neck strain, burning or tired eyes may be the result, particularly as we get older.

From the age of 30 onwards, this can lead to digital eyestrain or, as the experts put it, the Computer Vision Syndrome

What are Computer Glasses?

Working in front of a computer and other mobile devices for hours has become a norm for most of us living in a digital world. This brings to a downside of digital eye strain and other eye problems. Luckily for us, computer glasses are designed to help cater to this kind of lifestyle.

Computer glasses are specially designed to cater to people working in front of a computer or other mobile devices. These glasses are built with lenses that block blue light from the screens and help prevent digital eye strain and other problematic symptoms like headaches, tired and dry eyes.

How Computer Glasses Work?

Computer glasses are designed with a coating that filters out the blue light coming from the device to reach your eyes. It is usually accompanied with slightly blue-ish reflection. Alternatively you can opt for another type of blue light lens which cuts off blue light by absorbing them with the lens material, these blue light lenses do not come with a blue-ish reflection.

Additionally, some computer glasses are designed with glass colour tinting to increase the screen’s contrast without making it too cruel.

Types of Computer Glasses

Types of Computer Glasses

There are several types of computer glasses available in the market that will protect your vision and work best with your type of work. Depending on the durability of exposure to electronic devices, getting the right computer glasses is crucial in maintaining healthy vision and eyes.

Monofocal Lenses

Known as single-vision glasses, this type of glasses is invented to provide the appropriate optical correction for the distance between the screen and the eyes. This correction property will allow users to view the whole screen with a minimum up-and-down head movement. Most suitable for young adults.

Bifocal Lenses

Bifocal lenses are designed for viewing objects at both closer and farther away objects and maintain your focus. This type of glasses helps prevent eye fatigue from focusing on electronic displays while reading.


Trifocal glasses, as the name suggests, have three lenses that combine a far vision segment, near vision, and vision at the screen distance (a distance between the distant and near segments)

Digital Anti-Fatigue Lenses

Digital lenses are designed for viewing objects at both closer and farther away objects and maintain your focus. This type of glasses helps prevent eye fatigue from focusing on electronic displays while reading. Most suitable for people in their 20s-30s.

Progressive Addition Lenses (PAL)

Progressive Addition Lenses (PAL) offers continuity of vision for wearers suffering from presbyopia. Using one pair of spectacle to correct for your far vision, intermediate vision (computer) and near vision. Allowing seamless transition for day to day use. Most suitable for people in their 40s and above.

Benefits of Computer Glasses

Minimum Glare

Computer glasses are designed to minimise glaring obstacles due to light bouncing off your digital screen glass to maintain healthy vision for wearers.

Good Posture

Essentially, computer glasses help you get a clearer vision from an average distance that ultimately lessens the necessity to strain your back and neck that eventually leads to bad posture, and help reduce headaches.

Blue Light Filter

Computer glasses are designed to filter excessive blue light exposure, especially at night. Some of these glasses come with yellow-tinted lenses that help protect your eyes from the harsh lights of the computer screen.

Better Eye Focus

Computer glasses usually correct astigmatism, a type of refractive error that causes blurry vision that will ultimately lead to better eye focus as it provides a bigger field of view.

Reduce Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer glasses come with protective lenses that offer you comfort as well as ensure good eye health. Symptoms like red eyes, disrupted sleep, and dry eyes associated with computer vision syndrome are reduced with good-quality computer glasses.
