Be Kind to Your Eyes!
Working in an office usually means a lot of time spent in front of a computer screen. If you do any kind of scheduling, routing, or billing, we imagine you are using a computer to do this. And not for short periods of time either. These things can take hours if not the entire work day to complete. There are two issues with this. For one, the strain on your eyes is actually pretty intense. Visual stress, eye fatigue, dry eyes, irritation, and headaches are all results of staring at digital screens for too long. Secondly, you can’t stop this strain. This is your job so there isn’t really any way to avoid staring at the screen all day.
While there may be no way to limit the amount of time you are staring at digital screens, there is a way to limit the strain on your eyes. The support guys in our office were experiencing many of the symptoms listed above when it came to their eyes, so they did some research and found GUNNARS™.
GUNNARS™ are essentially glasses that help “protect, enhance, and optimize your vision,” as their website states. The glasses are powered by i-AMP lens technology. In simpler terms, they are made of certain materials designed to limit the strain TV monitors, smart phones, computer screens, and the like put on your eyes. Here are just some of the benefits:
- Minimize eye fatigue
- 20/20 ready
- Sharpen details
- Improves focus
- Prescription compatible
- Reduce glare
The glasses range anywhere from $50-100. You can check out GUNNARS™ site here, or always look on eBay or Amazon for deals.
These glasses are a great solution for anyone who is struggling with eye strain due to long hours staring at a screen. They can also be useful out in the field if your guys are staring at their smart phones or tablets a lot while working. They are an easy solution to help fix a big problem!
