For those of us who “live” in front of the computer, there is a better alternative to suit our visual needs than traditional progressive multifocal lenses. A lens design known as a “Computer Continuum “ progressive lens.
How does the “Computer Continuum” progressive differ from the traditional progressive styles?
The primary viewing area (the part of the lens directly in front of your eyes) of the Computer Continuum is the computer power, instead of the distance power as is the case with traditional progressives. The computer section is wider, deeper, and straight-ahead (so you do NOT have to tilt your head back to see thru the computer range power. The bottom portion of the continuum lens has a larger reading area compared to the traditional progressive lens design. The extra room for the computer power and reading power means that the distance vision is smaller and located toward the very top of the lens. For seeing things past 10 feet your chin may need to be lowered to look through the top of the lens. This lens design is a very special designed lens for working on a computer and near tasks and not for general use.
Computer Continuum lenses are ideal for computer users, administrative assistants, draft persons, accountants, artists, just to name a few.
Other options to consider with your computer continuum lenses:
Anti-reflective cuts reflections from computer, reducing eyestain and fatigue also making your lenses more comfortable and clear.
UV 400 protection helps to protect your eyes from ultra violet radiation that can be transmitted by computers.
