Occupational lenses are an excellent choice for those who need glasses during their ‘occupation’. It can be a hobby or a job which requires close-up work and a view slightly further ahead. These lenses are designed in a specific way to enable you to see near objects through the lower part of your glasses and further away objects through the upper part of the lens. They are great for reading and working with computer screens in general.
They’re especially helpful for those suffering from presbyopia. It’s a common vision problem for people over 40 when the eye lens struggles to focus on near objects.
Even though occupational lenses sound the same as standard varifocal they have differences.
Difference Between Occupational Lenses, Reading Glasses & Varifocals
When you come to the point in your life that a few tasks near and further away become challenging then you may consider buying varifocal lenses. They are great as they offer a few prescriptions in one lens – close-up, far away and everything in between. However, standard varifocal lenses don’t always offer a wide enough viewing zone as occupational lenses do. Occupational lenses are lenses to go for when you spend a long time reading off your work computer screen, in addition to having real-time meetings, and accomplishing any other tasks at your desk.
Reading glasses may sound like a good option but unfortunately, they can be quite tiring as you always them off and put them back on when it comes to changing your view from close to distant. Or you’ll have to give a look above your glasses as anything further than 40 cm away looks blurred in these glasses.
Occupational glasses are stereotypically referred to as office glasses. However, they can be worn by representatives of many other professions including hairdressers, waiters, teachers, shop assistants, doctors etc.
