Sometimes glasses are the best eyestrain treatment. However, an optometrist might only prescribe glasses for specific activities like reading or computer work. In fact, many of our Sydney patients say it makes those tasks a much more comfortable.
It’s worth noting that the blue light from computer screens is a major contributor to eyestrain. So a special filter coating can be applied to glasses which reduces the amount of harmful blue light entering the eyes. This also helps treat eyestrain. Indeed, our Sydney-based optometrists recommend blue light coatings for anyone who wears glasses for digital device use.
