Office jobs are hard work for your eyes, too.
For a majority of people who head into an office every day, work means spending long hours in front of a computer screen.
It should come as no surprise that it’s been reported that approximately 7 out of 10 people suffer from symptoms of digital eye strain.
Digital eye strain has two major causes:
- Prolonged focusing at near distances puts the eye under constant tension as it adjusts its focus to match the distance of the screen.
- Digital devices – particularly those with LED screens – emit a lot of blue light which is scattered and reduces the perceived contrast of what the eye is looking at.
Nikon offers lenses specially adapted for computer and smartphone users. They combine a coating that cuts part of the blue light emitted by digital screens with a special optical design that allows for more relaxed focusing.
The typical symptoms of eye fatigue related to digital devices:
– Eye Strain
– Tired Eyes
– Blurry vision
– Dry or burning eyes
– Difficulty concentrating
– Neck or shoulder pain
– Difficulty using computer spreadsheet programs
