Z87.1 Safety Eyewear for Computer Vision Syndrome
Viewing computer or digital screens often require the eyes to work harder resulting in CVS or Digital Eye Strain, resulting in loss of productivity.
Computer Vision Syndrome “CVS” or Digital Eye Strain occurs because the visual demands of the task exceed the visual abilities of the individual to comfortably perform them. At greatest risk for developing CVS or Digital Eye Strain are those persons who spend two or more continuous hours at a computer or using a digital screen device every day. In today’s industry, computer use and use of digital devices is not limited to office workers but occurs in every shop floor and other production facility.
In some cases, individuals who do not require the use of eyeglasses for other daily activities may benefit from glasses prescribed specifically for computer use. In addition, persons already wearing glasses may find their current prescription does not provide optimal vision for viewing a computer.
Lenses prescribed to meet the unique visual demands of computer viewing may be needed. Special lens designs, lens powers or coatings may help to maximize visual abilities and comfort and reduce the effects of CVS.
