Side Effects of Clip-On Computer Reading Glasses for Users Over 50 in Our Digital Workplace

If you are 50 years or older and are one of the millions of computer users who suffer daily from the annoying neck and back pain as well as experiencing symptoms of eyestrain; you can make your job less work today. Here you will find the fast, safe and effective POSITIVE side effects of a new ergonomically designed clip-on computer reading glass that is cost effective.

It has been estimated that almost 75% of all computer users should have some form of computer glasses, especially for the bifocal age group of users around 50, where that estimate is almost 99%. Who really needs a sore neck, achy shoulders and or a lower back problem at work? A clip-on computer reading glass will solve the head bobbing problem of using conventional bifocals, trifocals and progressive style lens designs. Computer clip-ons have a mid-range intermediate prescription when placed over the top portion of their general wear eyeglasses for easy viewing of the computer monitor with a natural head position, and still utilize the lower reading portion of the eyeglasses for easy close reference material viewing.

If you have to lift your head up to see the screen clearly with your trifocals or progressive, or think you can see the computer screen good enough through the distance portion of your general wear glasses at 50 years of age you need to read what’s next. You can spend less than the cost of a dedicated pair of computer glasses, and save the co-pays to the MD or Chiropractor(DC), by using a new clip-on computer reading lens.

Like a dedicated pair of computer glasses for computer users 50 and older, the ergonomically designed computer reading clip-on lens for this growing bifocal age group of computer users will help combat many of digital symptoms associated with having to use a a PC monitor for 2 or more hours daily; headaches, blurry vision, red eyes, overall bodily fatigue and tiredness, neck and shoulder or back pain, double vision and problems with letters on the screen running together. All of these symptoms are referred to as Computer Vision Syndrome. The digital age is here, and human vision is having a difficult time adjusting to round pixel patterns on our electronic screens.

The benefits of a good computer clip-on are:
* Digital Quality Lenses
* Anti-fatigue Designed Optics, so the eye muscles don’t overwork
* Non-glare Coating, to reduce headaches from glare and improve vision
* Light weight and thin, so not to drag your eyeglasses down

If you are 50 and still using your general purpose glasses for computer use, understand that your eye’s focusing ability is under a strain to keep the content on the screen clear. After all, you are using a bifocal type of prescription to see at 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 working on the monitor. A good clip-on computer reading lens designed for computer users around 50 has just enough power to eliminate the extra strain on the focusing ability of the eyes after you clip it over the distance portion of your eyeglasses.

The side effects of a dedicated pair of having a clip-on computer reading glass are:

* Eliminate the need to run to a MD for DC with a sore neck, back and shoulders
* Reduce eyestrain so you feel less tired at the end of the day
* Increase ability to see clearly to produce more work with less mistakes
* Reduce headaches because the eye’s ability to focus is less stressful

Taking regular breaks every half hour or so to look at objects 20 feet away or further will help your eyes relax, as well as remember to blink. Yes, our blink rate goes down when we stare into a computer screen, and around 50, so does the ability to produce tears. Unlike looking down to read where the eyelids partially cover and protect the tear layer on the eye, starring into a computer screen exposes all of the cornea and the tear layer. Blinking helps to keep the eyes moist to eliminate a scratching or burning feeling and red eye.

The 50 year old group of computer users can work smarter, and enjoy the side effects of a clip-on computer reading glass to make your job less work.
