Why Bifocals At The Monitor Liberation Day?
Generally around the age of 40 developing presbyopia is common. The eye’s ability to see closer objects reduces and thereby needs a bifocal lens to see better!
A bifocal lens is designed with two focal points, one for viewing distant objects, and the other for near objects.
It is common to see people with bifocals struggling to work in front of the computer monitor. This is because focused vision is available at least 14 inches away from the eye in the bifocal and reading glasses. And this becomes difficult for distance correction as the monitor is farther away thus disabling focus.
When people use a bifocal lens they might also be forced to tilt their head often to focus on their monitor. This habit can result in neck, shoulder, and back pain in the long run as they tend to look through the lower portion of the glasses to get things done on the monitor.
So to aid you in your computer use, try a pair of ‘computer eyeglasses’. These glasses will cover the distance to focus properly on the screen. You may also consider trifocal lenses or progressive bifocals to help your eyes focus at multiple distances easily.
Some folks who use glasses regularly are not aware of Presbyopia as they age. Thus it is important to take care of our eyes and get our vision checked regularly.
Thus the Bifocals At The Monitor Liberation Day reminds us to empathize with our friends and colleagues wearing a bifocal lens, raise awareness of presbyopia as well as encourage regular eye care routine.
