Do you feel fatigued or sleepy after only a few hours of working on the computer? Learn the best way to beat computer fatigue and sleepiness. This is common among computer users daily, especially the bifocal age computer users. As your eyes become tired, your body and mind seem to follow. Learn how to re-energize your eyes so your body and mind stay alert.
For those of you that are bifocal age and still using your general purpose prescription eyeglasses for computer use, understand that your eye’s focusing ability is under a strain to keep the content on the screen clear. Just because you can see the computer screen clearly through the distant portion of your eyeglasses doesn’t mean you are not taxing the eye’s focusing ability to maintain a sharp focus.
After all, you are using a bifocal type of prescription to see at a close reading distance clearly for extended periods of time. If you are using the distance portion of your glasses to see just beyond the reading range in the intermediate computer distance; than it is reasonable to believe that the eyes have to work harder to maintain a mid-range focus for several hours without overworking the eye’s accommodative/focusing ability.
The amount of lens power necessary to relieve the eyes from the stress is about half the amount of power necessary for you to read with. A dedicated pair of computer glasses will work wonders, or if you want to save money the clip-on computer reading glasses will solve the problem.
A special computer reading glass, like Computer Conversion Clips, provides a calculated amount of additional magnification when attached to the upper portion of the wearer’s bifocals or progressive eyeglasses. This additional power will change the upper distant portion of the glasses to arm’s length computer distance. The clip-on user can see the computer screen without lifting their chin up and having to reposition themselves closer to the screen. This will immediately ease eyestrain and back pain associated with poor visual and physical posturing.
A simple example that many of you can relate to would be if you were a person lifting weights at a gym, and using 15 pound dumbbells to do a set of arm curls. What if somebody took 13 pounds of weight away; now you are doing the arm curls with only 2 pounds. Think how many more curls you can do now before getting fatigued! This is the reasoning and science behind a computer reading clip or a dedicated pair of computer glasses.
Your bifocal add power allows your eyes to focus on reading distances with less accommodative (eye muscle and lens focusing ability) effort and greater comfort for long periods of time more efficiently. The newly designed clip-on, Computer Conversion Clips, magnification powers allows your eyes to rest comfortably at mid-range the very same way. Otherwise, looking at a PC monitor through the distant portion of your bifocal or progressive lenses is like using the 15 pound dumbbells in the gym example; you my be able to do it but you eyes will get tired sooner. It has always been my belief that when your eyes get tired, so does your body. You now have a choice to beat computer fatigue and sleepiness while working at the computer, and re-energize your eyes with better vision and with less physical stress on your posture.
