A New Lens for a New Work Space

We’ve had to change a LOT about our day-to-day operations since Covid-19 entered our lives. How we shop. Where we stand. How we socialize. How we go to school. And how (and where) we work.

Millions of Americans saw their workplace change from the office to a remote work space in their homes, as companies did their part to shield employees from possible exposure to the coronavirus.

The Numbers

A survey of 158 employers by Willis Towers Watson way back in March found that 46% of organizations had implemented remote work policies for employees, with another 13% preparing to do so. And that doesn’t even include the number of noncorporate jobs that were suddenly “work from home,” such as teachers…and even optometrists struggling to serve patients’ needs via remote conferencing.

That all comes down to a lot more time spent in front of a computer—even for office workers used to looking at screens—because in a remote work environment, everything is done in front of a screen, including meetings, trade conferences, teaching, and even group happy hours! And with that added computer time comes the uncomfortable symptoms associated with digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome.

The Solution

Here’s how you can help: Prescribe Shamir’s Freeform occupational lenses that optimize the “work” viewing field, providing comfortable vision during screen time.

Shamir Computer and Shamir WorkSpace lenses provide customizable solutions for presbyopic patients struggling with the symptoms associated with increased screen time. Computer lenses are for those who need to predominately focus at a monitor (providing an optimized, wide field of near viewing up to 5 feet). WorkSpace lenses are for those who need to keep the computer sharp while also keeping their surroundings in focus (such as children doing their remote learning nearby). Both lenses reap the design benefits of Shamir’s Natural Posture ergonomic design concept and IntelliCorridor, a unique power profile that is optimized for the clearest vision at the desired distance.

These lenses, as a second-pair sale, provide real—and flexible—solutions for today’s unprecedented vision challenges.  To learn more, check out this video:
