Do you know that you can get headaches, back aches and migraines from bad posture? Well  the reason many modern day employees get all and many more discomforts may be avoided with the use of office progressive lenses. Let me explain, when you spend hours in front of a computer terminal using regular progressives your head posture is of tilting your head back because you are gearing using the smaller reading portion of the reading area of your lenses, commonly used in regular progressives. Using office or computer lenses alleviate the problem by allowing a larger area of the lens set for near and intermediate and a smaller area for distance.  The larger areas for near and intermediate vision, ease the task of using the computer allow for a more comfortable position of your head and in essence your back. You will be more balance physically allowing your blood flow to be more. By having a better posture and avoiding "uncomfortable head positions " you will feel better.

Contact Lenses are very safe and an excellent option if you have to wear corrective lenses. Contact lenses require the specialists  to evaluate your latest refractive prescription, measure your eyes with a special instrument, put a contact lens in the eye and evaluate the physiological interaction of the contact lens and your cornea using a microscope called a biomicroscope. Anything lesser than that puts your eye health at risk.
