Are you suffering from digital eye strain?


It’s 2015, look around, everyone has a smartphone in hand at all times. Go ahead, admit it, when you are in line at the grocery store, what do you do? You reach for the phone right?

If you’re like most people in the modern age, you probably spend your waking hours either in front of a computer and / or on a smartphone.

Do your eyes ever feel tired, dry, or do you experience blurry vision at the end of the day?

If so, you’re probably suffering from digital eye strain.

It’s an epidemic!

Unfortunately, our eyes haven’t evolved for screens. We are just now beginning to understand the biological impact that screens have on our eyes. All those small pixels right in front of our face is changing our vision permanently.

Nearly 70% of U.S. adults experience some form of digital eyestrain.

The problem is that your eyes get adjusted to close up details and focus less on far away things, thus blurring your vision and drying out your eyes. Some patients complain that their eyes actually hurt.

Now there’s a solution to this problem!

It’s called ZEISS Digital Lens. ZEISS is primarily designed for patients between 25-45 who use mobile phones and computers a lot. They are designed to give patients a distance based single-vision feel with an extremely comfortable “digital” viewing experience.
