What are “Zoom Glasses” – Dr. Marc Robinson

Computer Glasses are having a moment at Gainesville Vision.

Over the past few months, I’ve seen an influx of professionals who are fed up with staring at their computer screens all day. The abrupt rise of work-from-home has left many of our patients struggling to find a comfortable way to complete an entire work day with their regular glasses.

In the past, the solution for near visual demands has been bifocal lenses and now progressive lenses. When computers became more common, progressive lenses became a mainstay. At Gainesville Vision our focus is on the precise measurement and utilization of more advanced lenses. All important measurements are accounted for, and your lenses are made specifically for you. This allows seamless adaptation to new glasses. These lenses are surfaced to provide clarity at a variety of distances and are a game-changer.

What happens when 100% of your work day involves staring at multiple computer screens?

This multiple-monitor situation is really cool at first but gets old quick. Searching for that “sweet spot” in your glasses for that mid-range of vision can be annoying, no matter how high quality your progressive lenses are.

Gainesville Vision is unique in that we understand the demanding work that professors, scientists and other professionals are dealing with because we deal with it every day. We solve these issues by creating a pair of workspace glasses that we’ve coined ourselves as “zoom glasses”.

During the eye exam, I’ll find the exact prescription so that the patient’s entire lens can be filled with the patient’s workspace prescription. Along with the doctor’s prescription, Aaron is able to let you try on the prescription, his optical skills come in handy when taking the advanced measurements required.

When you stare far away your eyes are further out and as you begin reading your eyes converge inwards. Well, on the computer your eyes also converge, but it’s unique for
each person. This is why many people with less precision and customization in their lenses struggle to find clarity. Aaron will measure the exact amount of convergence your eyes have at that workspace distance so that your eyes align perfectly in your “zoom glasses”, allowing you to work comfortably for hours and hours. We have had such happy patients (and likely happy bosses) since making this a focus in our office!

Please contact our office if you’d like to see if this visual solution will make your workday easy (for your eyes at least).
