Why We Need Computer Glasses
I see many people with their heads craned forward as they work to accomplish their daily task at the computer. Our heads want to be balanced gently on the Atlas joint. A bunch of head and shoulder muscles. Little muscles and big muscles that should be relaxed are kept under a workload as we work throughout the day. These muscles, ligaments and tendons run all the way from our skull down to our big toes
. (When our heads are craned forward these muscles are under a constant workload to balance this bowling ball sized weight.
Properly fitted glasses for reading is about 14 inches from the user’s eyes.
Properly fitted computer glasses need to be set at about 26 inches (according to OSHA’s guidelines), That is because most computer monitors are spaced at about 26 inches.
NO one should wear bifocal or trifocal glasses when using a computer
When we struggle to see the screen, and crane our head forward to see the task we are trying to work on, instead of having the correct eyeglasses, we put our heads and necks into constant unbalance.
- We now have two problems:
- We are now trying to read the monitor with our reading glasses which are set at about 14 inches from our face, and the screen is about 26 inches.
- The second problem is, we must crane our heads upwards to use the bifocal lenses.
Properly fitted eyeglasses can solve this problem and will make a happier and more productive worker.Walmart or Sam’s can solve this problem for about $130.
