How Long Does it Take to Adjust to Anti-Fatigue Lens?
Many of us take for granted how hard our eyes have to work in a modern world that often requires excessive daily screen time for both our work and our favorite activities. In fact, it may be surprising to learn that the average American is now spending seven hours per day looking at a screen. The consequences are less surprising, and more people than ever are suffering from the adverse effects of eyestrain and ocular fatigue, which may especially affect individuals who wear glasses.
Our experienced team at inVision Ophthalmology Birmingham is happy to present an effective, efficient solution: anti-fatigue lenses. By providing two powers of correction and a specially designed magnifying boost, anti-fatigue lenses can keep you and your eyes refreshed and ready to excel and enjoy near-vision activities. If you’d like to learn more, get in touch today and find out how we can best help you in Birmingham, AL.
How does screen time affect eye health?
We spend more time than ever looking at screens, and that trend shows no signs of slowing down or reversing. As mentioned previously, nearly one-third of our day is spent in front of a screen, and once we’re done with one screen, we often transition to a different screen.
The result is an increase in cases of eyestrain and eye fatigue, though these aren’t the only symptoms of a rapidly digitizing world. The strain of constant screen time can also cause visual issues, such as blurred vision. Additionally, these woes are not limited to fatigue and ocular tiredness, as many patients experience eye pain, headaches, watery eyes, and persistent irritation.
But we’re here to help alleviate your eyestrain (and other symptoms) in Birmingham. Your personalized treatment plan will begin with a comprehensive eye exam, where we’ll evaluate your eyes and vision through various time-tested techniques. Then, depending on your unique needs and lifestyle factors, we’ll devise an effective treatment strategy to assist you in regaining your productivity and daily comfort.
How long does it take to get used to anti-fatigue lenses?
Anti-fatigue lenses can help prevent numerous eyestrain-related issues by offering a visual aid that’s designed specifically for near-distance (i.e., about arm’s length or nearer) work. These lenses feature two powers of correction and are crafted to help you excel at your daily tasks and enjoy your free time by making it easier and less exhaustive to work on the computer, read, or use your phone.
Getting used to your anti-fatigue lenses will require a short period, though this generally only lasts about a week or two. Your results, of course, will vary based on multiple considerations, and we’ll be able to give you a more definitive answer when we see you at our Birmingham practice and create your personalized treatment strategy.
