There’s a good chance that you’re reading this text on your tablet or smartphone, holding the device a short distance from your eyes. Often you just glance at your phone to check the time or send a quick text message, and doing this hundreds of times a day can be pretty stressful on the eyes. To help people fight so called Digital Eye Strain brought on by the modern age, ZEISS is releasing new eyeglass lenses that reduce fatigue caused by repeatedly switching between looking near and far.
Designed for people with normal vision and those that typically wear spectacles, the lenses feature an area toward the bottom that magnifies nearby objects. Distance vision remains unaffected, while a short transition zone makes it easy to quickly switch from near and far viewing.
Finally, hipsters with 20/20 vision have a real excuse to wear glasses.
More from ZEISS about the Digital Lenses:
It is specifically designed to meet the vision needs of people in their 30s and 40s who are experiencing near vision discomfort for the first time. Regardless of whether they are single vision wearers or not yet spectacle wearers.
The effectiveness of ZEISS Digital Lenses has been proven in stress tests carried out with smartphone and tablet users. More than 90 % of all respondents were satisfied with the reduction in the symptoms of strained or tired eyes by a factor of 4.
