These lenses are the best choice for presbyopes in a work environment, who are using a computer (intermediate vision) and who also need to read on closer objects, like a smartphone, a tablet or documents (near vision).
From the age of 45, presbyopia sets in, meaning that the eye gradually has more difficulty in "focusing" (or accommodating) on a nearby object. Therefore, there are several solutions available to presbyopic people to correct this vision disorder.
Office glasses (also known as degressive) can be an interesting option for people working in front of a computer screen all day long. But it is also possible for them to choose progressive glasses that correct three fields of vision (near, intermediate and far) or unifocal glasses. No pair of glasses is universal and everyone chooses the pair that suits them best, but for presbyopes working in an office, the most natural choice would be degressive glasses.
Just like progressive glasses, office glasses make it possible to correct near vision (30-40cm) as well as intermediate vision (60-90cm). However, they do not correct distance vision.
These lenses are adapted to make the transition from near to intermediate vision as pleasant as possible. They are perfect for presbyopes who don't want to wear glasses all the time. They allow for an easy reading without affecting their intermediate vision (colleagues, computer...) by "image jumps". In addition, adaptation to correction is much faster than with progressive lenses.
To make the office lenses even more efficient, it is possible to add the Digital Relax coating which avoids eye fatigue due to the blue light emitted by the screens.
Who are the Office Glasses for?
- Young presbyopes who have not opted for progressive glasses because they do not want to wear their glasses all the time.
- Presbyopes already equipped with single vision glasses for near vision, and who wish to renew their equipment for a better field depth.
- Presbyopes already equipped with progressive glasses and who wish to have specific equipment to improve their visual comfort and promote work ergonomics (DIY, reading, drawing, screen, etc.).
- Presbyopes whose progressive glasses do not give satisfaction in front of the computer (too restricted visual field) or when the interlocutor sitting in front of them seems blurry.
