If you have ever seen a coworker wearing computer glasses, you may have wondered why someone would choose to work behind special goggles. After all, you're not exactly blowing glass there at your desk, so why the sudden need for protective eye wear? In fact, computer glasses are the medical establishment's response to a growing and quite serious problem.

You may have noticed that when you wave a hand in front of your monitor, your fingers strobe as they pass in front of the light. That's because your computer has a refresh rate that far exceeds your ability to consciously detect it, but whose lightning fast flickering does quite a number on the muscles in your eyes. If you have a tendency to end each workday with headaches, tired eyes, or impaired vision, you have likely witnessed this phenomenon firsthand.

Computer Glasses: Clearly Better

Eye strain can lead to a number of serious problems, including permanent damage to your visual acuity and lasting headaches. What computer glasses do that your own cannot is reduce the level of glare that leads your eyes on a downward spiral of strength and energy each day. A good pair can have typically dramatic results for anyone suffering with the particular burden of lasting visual pain.

Do yourself a favor and check out the full range of smart ergonomic accessories the experts are recommending. Everyone works in a different position under different circumstances, so those arm supports that are a life saver for a colleague may not be right for you. When it comes to computer glasses and their cousins, the best way to see what works is to try them yourself and see where the comfort is.
