If you’re ever in my situation and you find yourself having to stay up all night reading a 20 pound text book about Business Law while simultaneously taking notes on the computer screen – you may also find yourself wondering why the words keep getting harder and harder to see (let alone comprehend) and, if there is anything in the world that could possibly better your situation. Well, lucky for you – I have just the thing. A few things to be learned here: 1. All-Nighters suck & coffee is wonderful. 2. After ...

If you’re ever in my situation and you find yourself having to stay up all night reading a 20 pound text book about Business Law while simultaneously taking notes on the computer screen – you may also find yourself wondering why the words keep getting harder and harder to see (let alone comprehend) and, if there is anything in the world that could possibly better your situation. Well, lucky for you – I have just the thing.

A few things to be learned here:

1. All-Nighters suck & coffee is wonderful.

2. After lengthy periods of time looking at small text, like the letters in a text book or those on a computer screen, you may begin to experience blurred vision.

So what does this mean?
Your eyes are most likely strained from shifting your focus from the text book to the computer screen and back.

What can we do?
Computer glasses and lenses are a great option for this situation. What makes computer glasses unique is that they contain a prescription for optimal intermediate distance viewing (a little farther than reading distance, but closer than driving distance), and combine it with the Anti-Reflective coating that helps reduce glare from the screen which can cause headaches and increased eyestrain.

Eye care doctors in college towns, like our Bloomington Eye Doctor, suggest computer glasses quite often to students to help with focus on school work.

And the benefits are:
With a simple eye examination you can get your intermediate distance measured and, of course, a pair of computer glasses. You’ll experience reduced eye strain, fewer headaches, increased ability to focus, and hopefully better grades as a result!

Time to get back to school work!
