With the seemingly never-ending time many of us spend on computers, smartphones and tablets, we are constantly switching between multiple viewing distances. For those of us who have to rely on glasses to see what we’re looking at, standard reading glasses only offer a limited solution. Forever taking glasses on or off or pushing them to the end of your nose and lifting your head up and down like a yoyo can lead to eye strain, dry eyes, neck pain, blurred vision and headaches, not to mention frustration.
But help is at hand.
Hoya specialises in clever lenses for eyeglasses
One of their latest breakthroughs in occupational lenses is Hoyalux iD Workstyle3. These smart lenses are ideal for people who spend a lot of time working on computers or doing tasks that require near and intermediate vision. Wear these prescription lenses and when you’re looking at objects at arm’s length, such as a computer screen or a book, everything will be in clear focus instantly. Hoyalux iD Workstyle3 lenses make it easier to focus on the job at hand for longer periods of time.
Without the correct lenses, computer and close-up work can be a right pain in the neck.
Hoyalux iD Workstyle3
The Hoyalux iD Workstyle3 lenses provide better focus and a wider field of vision for near to intermediate-range distances. They have a larger intermediate area than traditional lenses. Our optometrists can then optimise the lenses for your individual prescription. The result is a lens that provides clarity across all distances: close-up, intermediate, and far away. They make everything crystal clear in a split second. No more eye strain, fatigue and poor posture.
Seeing clearly at all distances
The iD Workstyle3 has a progressive design, so you can see clearly at all distances. Gone are the days of having to endlessly switch between pairs of glasses. The different parts of the lens are optimised for different distances. The upper part of the lens is designed for distance vision. The middle is for intermediate vision, and the lower for near vision. You can switch from one device to another, across a range of distances, and still see what you’re doing.
Coatings for eye and lens health
We can also combine The iD Workstyle3 lens with light-reactive tint lenses and blue control technology. Light-reactive or transition lenses darken when exposed to sunlight. They then return to their clear state when you go back indoors; very helpful if you work in an environment where frequently you move between indoors and out.
Blue control technology is designed to reduce the amount of blue light entering your eyes. This is the high-energy visible light that the digital screens of our smartphones, tablets, computers and televisions emit. Blue light can lead to eye strain, fatigue poor sleep. By reducing the amount of blue light that enters your eyes, you can enjoy relaxed vision, better ocular health and make working on a computer for long periods of time easier.
If you want to keep your Hoya lenses safe and in good condition for years, the iD Workstyle3 lens can come with a diamond coating anti-reflective coating. This ultra-hard coating reduces the chance of scratches to an absolute minimum. It will also reduce glare and reflections from the surface of the lens.
Reflections cause irritation and eye fatigue. An anti-reflective coating can take away these reflections. That is particularly helpful if you work in an environment with bright lights or if you use a computer screen for long periods of time.
An excellent choice for people who wear prescription glasses
If you spend a lot of time working on a computer and wear reading glasses, these lenses may be a good choice for you. iD Workstyle3 lenses can help reduce eye strain and fatigue and provide clear and comfortable vision across all distances.
