About Computer glasses:
The eyeglasses that are specially designed to improve your vision by reducing glare and eyestrain; improving contrast and enhancing what you see through the lenses when looking at digital screens are commonly known as computer glasses. Computer glasses vary from normal reading glasses in a number of ways to improve your vision. They increase the productivity of a computer user by making it easier for them to look at the screen for longer period of time.
What makes it special from normal glasses?
Coating: Computer glasses are specially coated with Anti-reflective that reduces glare and blue light bouncing off the digital screens but not all glasses have the same type of anti-reflective coating, most high-end glasses have better coating that prevents dirt and smudges from sticking in the glasses while in use whereas cheaper produces do tend to catch dirt and smudges, requiring the user to clean the glasses multiple time while in use. Also, the new coated glasses are much better than the previous models. Older models scratched and peeled quickly, subsequently resulting in unpleasant cracks. The newer coating is much durable and better at reflecting.
Tinted color: Most computer glasses also have a distinctive tint, normally yellow, designed to improve on-screen contrast and block out the harsh and uncomfortable light spectrum to calm your eye muscles.
Why do we need these glasses?
While operating on a screen for long length of time blurred vision, red eyes, eye strain, and other CVS (computer vision syndrome) symptoms are usually encountered. This is because, unlike most other activities, the visual requirements of computer work are different.
Most computer users frequently end up with eye strain, blurred vision or nausea without computer eyeglasses— the signature signs of CVS. Computer glasses place the best lens power exactly where you need it for a direct and wide field of view without the need for unnecessary focusing or uncomfortable postures to display your computer screen. Research at the university also demonstrates that personalized eye-wear can significantly increase the productivity of the individual.
These glass lenses have specified changed lens energy to provide the user's computer screen with the most convenient vision, which is single vision lenses. This lens power relaxes the amount of housing needed to keep images insight at the computer screen's length and offers the maximum field of view.
Single vision lenses are usually prescribed to children and young adults who need prescription eyeglasses. Such lenses correct the nearsightedness and astigmatism of the wearer, and the lens from inside the eye changes automatically to provide the extra magnifying power required for computer vision.
Looking for correct computer glasses?
Buy the right frame according to your facial features. Here, a short guide on how to buy the perfect computer glasses according to your facial shape.
The Oval face :
Thanks to its balanced proportions, oval face shape is considered to be an ideal face shape. Search for eyeglass frames that are as wide as or wider than the widest part of the face to preserve the natural balance of oval face shape. It is a very good choice for walnut-shaped frames that are not too wide or narrow.
The Heart face:
People with broad top third of the face and a narrow bottom have a heart-shaped face. Use computer glasses with frame forms that are narrower at the bottom to minimize the visible width of the top of the face. Other good choices are small, light-colored frames and rimless frames with a sweet, airy look.
The Oblong face:
The outline of an oblong face is the length of the face is longer than its width and has a straight, long cheek line. Seek computer glasses with frames that have more depth than length to make an oblong face appear more balanced and shorter. Contrasting or decorative temple frames often add facial length.
The Square face:
A face shape having a broad forehead and broad jaw, and the face's width and length are about the same is considered to be a square shaped face. Consider small frame types, frames that are broader than width, or narrow ovals to make a square face look longer and soften the angles.
The Diamond face:
Diamond shape are narrow on both top and bottom; and have wide, prominent and dramatic cheekbones. This is the rare form of the head. Use frames that have complex and distinctive brow lines to emphasize the face and soften the cheekbones. Even good choices can be frames with oval shapes and rimless eyeglasses.
The round face:
People with round face shape have curved lines in the same proportions of length and width and no angles.Use angular narrow eyeglass frames to lengthen the face to make a round face look shorter and thinner.Even good choices can be framed with a rectangular frames or clear bridge that are wider than long.
The triangular base-down face
The most uncommon facial type triangular base-down face shape has a narrow top and is wider in the region of the cheek and chin. Use computer glasses that are heavily accented with color and texture on the top half of the frame to add length and highlight the narrow upper third of the head. Cat-eye shaped frames can also be good choices for this facial type.
