Are Your Eyes Fatigued by Overuse?

· Crizal Anti Fatigue lens combines far vision correction with unique features to reduce weariness of the eyes commonly known as Visual Fatigue Syndrome
New Delhi, Nov, 2014: In a technology-laden world dominated by computers and smart devices, our eyes feel the pressure of non-stop usage and continued stress daily. Taking into account the changing needs of the time, leading French lens maker Essilor has offered Crizal Anti Fatigue lens -- a new solution to fight Visual Fatigue -- a common side-effect of constant eye usage.
According to different researches and estimates, average time spent in front of the computers has increased by 65 per cent over the past five years. At the same time, we spend three hours in front of television sets on an average every day. Add to it the rapid growth of tablet PCs and Smartphones, and there is reason to believe that visual stress on our eyes is only increasing by the day.
We also spend 80 per cent of our time indoors surrounded by harmful artificial light and air conditioning. All this makes it clear that the eyes have developed new needs.
Tired and weary eyes, headaches, blurred vision, itching and burning are symptoms that more and more people are reporting every day.
So, how can we make sure that we continue to absorb the benefits of advanced technology and devices while making them easy on the eyes? Researchers at Essilor spent considerable time at this question and devices a technologically advanced solution to the problem of growing visual stress and fatigue.
Crizal Anti Fatigue lens combines far vision correction and unique features to reduce visual fatigue and is ideal for people in the age bracket of 35-45 years as well as for eyeglass wearers.
Crizal Anti Fatigue is a patented design advanced single vision lens, designed specially to relieve the symptoms of visual fatigue. The lenses support the wearer’s accommodation efforts with an additional plus power at near vision (+0.60 D) and an instant adaptation. This provides a greater level of comfort for the wearer as the natural accommodation pattern is retained.
“The needs of the eyes today are not the same as they were 10 years back. Today, there is no escape from computer screens and smart devices; most of us are on the systems for hours at a stretch. Even after work hours, our eyes continue to feel the stress as we surf through Internet on I pads, watch TV and use smartphones. Most of us are glued to our devices even as we are on the road travelling from work to home and vice versa. These changed circumstances need extra care to reduce Visual Fatigue on the eye. Crizal Anti-Fatigue are visual lenses that reduce visual fatigue by 50 per cent. The lens not only corrects ametropia, but also allows the wearer to enjoy the day from beginning to end amidst all activities,” says says Mr. Shivkumar J, CEO Essilor India.
Visual Fatigue is actually caused by focusing on objects one to three feet away for extended periods of time. This is why staring at computer screens, reading material, and even cell phones can lead to Visual Fatigue Syndrome.
Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses are intended as a primary-pair replacement for patients’ single-vision lenses. Essilor Anti-Fatigue lenses feature a special “Power Boost” area in the lower portion of the lens, to give the wearer’s eyes greater clarity and comfort when focusing up-close for extended periods. This accommodative relief in the near vision provides wearers with greater comfort than standard vision correction.
If you are one of those people whose eyes seldom find rest throughout the action-packed day, you need to add the comfort and protection of Crizal Anti-Fatigue to your daily life. Meant to replace single vision glasses for greater comfort, Crizal Anti Fatigue is a unique lens that combines distance correction with three specific features – specific design geometry, filter and coating – to support accommodation efforts and increase comfort.
