About 64% of people spend 4 hours or more in front of a computer screen. While others spend hours reading books, often having small letters.
All these things can seriously test our ocular muscles that need to respond accordingly, adjusting to the distant vision of daylife and near vision of reading and screen time.
To help our eyes, the Muunel team developed new anti-fatigue glasses that have two functions in one and can benefit people in preventing any symptoms of visual fatigue. So let us see what they are.
Anti-fatigue lenses, also known as AF lenses, are a specialized type of lens with a progressive shift to help near vision towards the bottom.
The upper end of these glasses provides distant vision necessary for everyday life activities like walking and driving. Simultaneously, as you go down, the lens gradually changes to the one suited to near vision to help those who need to rest their visual muscles. This rest to your visible muscles can help stall any refractive errors one can expect with increasing age due to eye muscles’ weakness.
These anti-fatigue lenses are slightly different from progressive lenses that are an excellent 3-in-1 solution. Along with the near and far vision settings you see in anti-fatigue lenses, they also have the central vision setting.
People often find it tough to adapt to three different settings, and initially, using them can cause headaches. But using something like an anti-fatigue lens is not only a solution in itself. Still, it can also be used as a safe transition to Progressive lenses for people who feel uncomfortable wearing them directly.
However, as time goes on and one gets used to this setting, they become an excellent refractive error solution.
You can use glasses for eye fatigue or anti-fatigue glasses if you do a lot of close work like reading or sitting in front of screens.
Long reading spans or using different devices can considerably tire up our eyes. For this purpose, things like anti-fatigue glasses and blue light protective glasses can be an excellent solution to protect our eyes from strain.
It is worth noting that there are different quality levels, so you must do a quality check before purchasing.
Computer users that show symptoms of digital eye strain such as headaches, blurry vision, and watery eyes are excellent candidates for anti-fatigue and blue light glasses.
Another right candidate is someone called a pre-presbyope. These people show signs that they will soon have a significant near vision decline. These people have weak ocular muscles, and anti-fatigue lenses are the perfect solution for them to spare their near vision muscles and rest.
These people could also benefit from progressive lenses, and anti-fatigue lenses prove to be a good transition for them as they move towards progressive lenses. Having said all that, it is essential to consult your doctor before any change in your glasses as it can have considerable medical consequences.
They allow you to comfortably see any objects close to you, which can be a severe problem for people with near vision difficulties.
They delay the progression of Presbyopia and are a great option to recommend to Pre-Presbyopes.
They reduce digital eye strain symptoms, a significant risk factor, and blue light for macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness.
Unlike progressive lenses, they are easy to adjust to, and very few people reject them after using them.
Anti-fatigue lenses are an excellent innovation for people who spend a lot of time in front of screens or read a lot. They offer both distant and near vision in one glasses and can reduce eye strain symptoms and help people perform better on their jobs and read with peace.
