Until 31st July we’re offering occupational lenses at the same price as standard reading spectacles
We’re constantly using technology. Switching between multiple devices means eye are losing their ability to focus which can cause eye strain and fatigue, especially for those over the age of 45.
Varifocal lenses offer a full range of focusing distances but the field of vision can be limited, particularly at arms length. Users often find themselves raising their chin to comfortably see the top half of the screen and moving their head from side to side to see the edges.
Previously, a pair of single vision lenses would have been prescribed. While this option provides perfect vision for the computer screen, the reading vision is compromised and the wearer can no longer see across the room.
This is where Rodenstock steps in. Their near vision lenses have been designed specifically to solve these issues. Based on the same principle as a varifocal, the bottom section of the lens focuses at the normal reading distance and gradually decreases in power the higher the wearer looks on the lens, allowing for clear distance towards the top of the lens. This means that the computer screen is now clear without the need to raise the chin.
Rodenstock have three variants of the near lens designed to give the user the widest field of view depending on their requirements.
- The book version offers the maximum field of view for near vision but unlike a traditional pair of reading spectacles they offer an extended depth of focus of between 90cm and 5 metres depending on prescription,
- The PC version is the most popular version and is ideal for VDU users. A large, clear area for the computer screen without the need to raise the chin but still offering sharp near vision. Depending on your prescription you can also see clearly at distances of between 1.3 and 5 metres,
- The room version offers the farthest viewing distance. Guaranteed between 2.5 and 5 metres this lens is ideal for office workers.
Until 31st July we’re offering occupational lenses at the same price as standard reading spectacles. That’s a free upgrade from single vision reading spectacles to occupational lenses which offer a far greater depth of focus.
