Intermediate lenses for working on screens

Blog

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.
