Are your eyes exhausted?

Are your eyes exhausted?

Sitting at a computer most of the day causes excessive strain on my eyes, a condition Indiana eye care doctors refer to as computer vision syndrome.  Like many in my position, my eyes naturally drift outward and the process of turning them back results in eyestrain, headaches and visual fatigue.

Dr. Tavel offers the answer for my tired eyes: Kodak anti-fatigue lenses.  This lens reduces eyestrain symptoms when performing near-viewing tasks.  Base-in prism is incorporated in the reading area of the lens to assist the normal binocular function of the eye.  These lenses allow you to perform near-viewing tasks for longer periods of time with less discomfort.

The Illinois College of Optometry conducted a study to evaluate the effectiveness of base-in prism lenses.  Each patient was given two pairs of progressive lenses, one with base-in prism and one without.  After three weeks, patients evaluated each pair of glasses.  Patients using progressive lenses with base-in prism experienced fewer eyestrain symptoms.

Kodak anti-fatigue lenses can be prescribed by your Indiana optometrist.  Give your eyes a wake up call – see Dr. Tavel and his board certified associates and ask about anti-fatigue lenses today!
