Lenses made for screens, unlike your eyes

Hoya’s SYNC III lenses

Digital eyestrain symptoms such as tired eyes, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, light sensitivity, poor night vision, and blurred vision can present themselves in as few as two hours. 

hoya anti-fatigue lensesTired eyes – also called asthenopia – is a common complaint and a catch-all for a variety of digital eyestrain symptoms. Headaches are a result of stress and strain. Blurred vision is a common complaint that computer users often just accept as normal. Dry eyes are common because we blink at almost half the rate we normally do when reading or focused on something up close. Also, the constant staring at a bright screen results in light sensitivity. 

Anti-fatigue lenses

Hoya SYNC III lenses are designed to reduce visual fatigue and strain that can be caused by prolonged use of digital devices, such as computers, smartphones, and tablets. If you get tired eyes and suffer impaired vision as a result of spending too much time in front of screens, these new spectacle lenses could be the answer. They are incredibly helpful to adults and adolescents who spend two or more hours a day focusing on digital screens. They are equally beneficial for people who focus on near-sighted tasks for long periods. 

Hoya SYNC III lenses are designed to let muscles relax and focus more easily, helping to relieve eye strain and provide visual comfort.

How do Hoya’s anti-fatigue lenses work?

SYNC III lenses have the distance power for everyday use plus a ‘boost zone’ at the bottom of the lens. The way many of us use our eyes has changed. We are now constantly switching between devices and screens. This sort of movement forces our eyes to work even harder, causing even more strain than staring at small screens at short distances for extended periods of time. The power boost specifically targets how we work with ‘devices’ and screens.

The boost zone is an area with an increased amount of relaxing power. Because the eyes can relax, it reduces eye strain during prolonged up-close activities such as looking at digital screens, reading or any ‘near task’ activities.

The three options for the lens address all levels of eye strain. All three will provide visual comfort throughout the day.
