Screens - everyday life for nearly everyone
Digital devices like computers, televisions, smart phones, tablets, and games consoles have become part of our everyday life for almost everyone. All the evidence indicates that the time spent in front of these screens only continues to increase.
Screens put extra demand on our near and mid-distance vision
At work in particular, the eye travels continuously between the screen, the keyboard, and the work station, creating a loss of contrast and distortion to the user's vision. The effect is amplified when using high resolution screens.
A lens that can mitigate this will have a positive effect on long-term visual comfort.
