A recent survey shows that almost half of Americans do not know what digital eye strain is. Additionally, most aren’t aware that lenses and enhancements are available to help with irritated eyes or visual issues that arise from daily screen time. These and other concerning findings surfaced in recent digital eye strain research conducted by Jobson/WebMD and by The Vision Council.
Digital eye strain symptoms are surging, while awareness of their cause—and alleviation—remains low. Digital eye strain sufferers are desperate for help. This presents you with a fantastic opportunity to provide them an informative, personalized, effective, and ultimately satisfying experience.
As an eye care professional, you understand the importance of a second pair of workplace lenses for presbyopic patients. However, convincing them of the value of splashing the cash on a task-oriented pair for work can be a challenge.
To help overcome this issue, we partnered with nationally recognized optical training consultant Denise Capretta COMT, LDO, ABOC, NCLEC to offer you five talking points you can use to help your patients easily understand the value of adding a work-specific lens to their everyday eyewear. Over the course of this blog series, we’ll share those talking points with you and how you can use them at the dispensing table.
Welcome to part two in our series on showcasing the value of office lenses to your patients.
