Relieve Eye Strain At the Computer

Customers often ask if FL-41 glasses will relieve eye strain at the computer.  He are some comments from a physician that studies light sensitivity:

Many of my patients have trouble with computer screens, but for a variety of reasons. Some of my patients need mild reading glasses or bifocal. This is especially true for patients over the age of 45 years or so. Other patients get into trouble because their eyes dry out while on the computer. When you use the computer, you tend to stare – your blink rate goes way down and your eyes can get dry. The dryness may not manifest as a “dry” feeling, but may manifest as your eyes feeling itchy, scratchy, burny, or maybe just tired. Still other patients are particularly set off by artificial light sources, including fluorescent lights and computer screens. This last group of patients can really relieve eye strain by FL-41, because it is for these people that the tint was originally engineered. Many of these same patients have migraines or frequent headaches associated with light sensitivity.

To relieve eye strain at the computer try some low-power (+1.00 or +1.25) over-the-counter reading glasses and some over-the-counter artificial tears (such as Optive or Systane). If you’re still struggling, or if you have a history of migraines, consider purchasing some FL-41 tinted lenses from Axon.
