Everyone has different needs for their glasses and you may have a need for just computer specific glasses. Specifically designed lenses are available to minimize the effects of eye fatigue, dry eyes, and neck pain caused by working at the computer. A set of lenses with a broader, clearer viewing zone that is larger than conventional eyeglass lenses can be very helpful to those working at a desk all day or who perform most of their work functions at near.
