How Can We Help?
Special lenses can be prescribed that reduce the stresses of near-centred tasks, such as working on computer, video display terminals or reading, to reduce the forces which contribute to vision problems. Lens prescriptions may be modified to guide the vision to a better mode of operation. Bifocal, varifocal, prism lenses and/or yoked prisms are also used where indicated. In some cases prescribed tinted (coloured) lenses are beneficial.
Lenses are tools available to alter human behaviour beneficially and immediately allow patients to alter their perception of the world around them and change how they function in their environment, reducing visual stress and give them a tool to help them perform their visual tasks. In this way, glasses become a useful appliance, similar to using a good pen to aid handwriting, or football boots instead of plimsolls for football, for use when working in today’s demanding visual environment - filled with sustained near visual demands, often indoors, with artificial lighting and in restricted room space.
