Occupational progressive power lenses are designed for performing a particular job or hobby, however they are not meant for general purpose wear.
In the office, we are more reliant on computers with many spending the majority of their working day viewing a screen. Individuals may benefit from specific VDU spectacles or where working distances are taken into account for the individual work station. Here it is helpful to understand the science of ergonomics. Ergonomics aims to make sure that tasks, equipment, information and the environment suits each worker.
The use of occupational lenses should be considered to cater for people using computers for prolonged periods, as they offer a better intermediate area and can be ordered to specific working distances with increased field of vision.
At Lambrou Eye Studio, Optometrists can fit lenses for fatigue free vision, through careful lens alignment within the frame, to encourage natural head and body posture. This is achieved by taking 4 individual parameters and matching the lens to your specific visual requirements. This bespoke product is perfect for those in the 40-50 year age range who may be experiencing mid range visual difficulties.
We offer a corporate eye care scheme for VDU testing, which provides employees with a selection of frames. Employers issue Eye Care Vouchers, which we accept for this service. Please contact us for further details about our different corporate eyecare schemes.
