our eyes are not made for screens


You may be looking at screens more than you think.
Between smartphones, computers, tablets, TVs and other digital devices, many people spend an average of 8 to 10 hours a day looking at screens or any near task.

This kind of exposure can cause digital eye strain symptoms, like irritated eyes, blurred vision and headaches, even after only two hours. Switching between devices can make matters even worse as your eyes never get the chance to relax.

Luckily, there is something you can do to relieve digital eye strain.
We have digital device lenses that are specifically designed to relieve eye strain and enhance visual comfort.

How do our digital device lenses work?

Our lenses have the distance power for everyday use and a ‘boost zone’ at the bottom of the lens.

The boost zone is an area with an increased amount of relaxing power. This boost zone allows the eye muscles to relax and focus more easily, relieving eye strain and enhancing visual comfort during prolonged up-close activities such as looking at digital screens, reading or any ‘near task’ activities.
In short, our digital device lenses:

  • Help to prevent or relieve digital eye strain
  • Enhance visual comfort throughout the day

Are you suffering from digital eye strain?

If you are between 13 and 45 years old and have answered any of the below questions with a YES, then our digital device lenses can be beneficial to you, either to prevent or to relieve digital eye strain.

  1. Are you using digital devices more than 2 hours a day?
  2. Are you using more than two devices a day?
  3. Are you experiencing any of these symptoms:
  • Tired, burning eyes?
  • Headaches?
  • Blurred vision?
  • Irritated eyes?
  • Excessive blinking or dry eyes?
  • Light sensitivity?

If you focus on digital screens or other near tasks for more than two hours a day or experience digital eye strain symptoms, ask your eye care professional to demonstrate how our digital device lenses can help relax your eyes in a digital world.
