Intermediate lenses for working on screens
I’ve worn glasses since 9th grade. My corrected vision has always been fine.
Then three years ago, age 47, I was experiencing serious eye fatigue when working on the computer.
I couldn’t keep the text in focus.
Over the course of a year, seemed like the problem was gradually getting worse.
I thought: “too much screen time, too much blue light.”
Finally I visited the optometrist. She gave me a prescription for intermediate lenses, designed for looking at a screen about two feet away.
I didn’t even know that was a thing.
Got a dedicated pair of glasses with these intermediate lenses and – boom – problem solved. Sharp focus, no eye strain.
If you know someone complaining of eye strain, ask them if they’ve talked to their optometrist about intermediate lenses.
