Welcome to part three in our series on demonstrating the value of a second pair of work-specific lenses to your patients. So far, we’ve discussed highlighting the customized performance advantages and visual comfort as key talking points when discussing office lenses. In this post, we’ll discuss how a task-oriented lens can make work less of a pain in the neck for your presbyopic patients.
Talking Point #3: Office Lenses Can Relieve Ergonomic Discomfort
When a patient starts experiencing neck, back, and shoulder pain at work, their office chair often gets the blame. Most people outside of the optical world have no idea their glasses can play just as big a role in their ergonomic comfort.
Sometimes you can actually see the light go on for a patient when you help them understand that their neck pain could be due to the fact that they’re constantly moving their head up, down, and all around to get their monitor in focus. With a bigger visual sweet spot dedicated to the near and intermediate requirements of the workplace, a task-oriented lens allows them to focus on the task at hand rather than the pain in their neck.
Use a viewing zones comparison like the one below to demonstrate how the larger near and intermediate viewing areas of an office lens like Unity® Via OfficePro make it easy to shift focus by moving their eyes, not their head and neck.
In part four of the series, we’ll discuss one of the biggest visual complaints among American workers and how a computer lens can combat its onset.
