The Optical Departments at Columbia Eye Clinic offer lens options for a variety of specific tasks to optimize your vision while at work or play. Specialty lenses are available for golf, reading, office &computer work and specific sports.
Shamir, the leading manufacturer of the most advanced digital lenses on the market, offers custom lens solutions for people who need to concentrate on close work at the computer while keeping near surroundings precisely in focus, or for work at the computer while also focusing on mid-distance workspace.
Shamir Computer lenses, provide a wide field of near viewing with clear vision up to five feet – a far greater depth-of-field than offered by conventional reading lenses. ComputerTM lenses are also ideal for occupations that require clear vision for any task performed within five feet.
Shamir WorkSpace lenses are the best solution when priority focus is both mid-distance and near viewing, offering a greater depth-of-field up to ten feet. WorkSpaceTM lenses allow for sharp vision whether focusing on the desk, or a colleague or customer across the room.
Shamir Office lenses provide wide, clear, near and intermediate vision up to 13 feet, giving you optimal intermediate vision that bi-focals, progressive nor reading glasses can because those lens types do not “focus” on intermediate vision.
One of the most common complaints in today’s workplace is back or neck problems at the end of the work day from trying to focus on a computer screen while wearing bi-focals or poorly fit progressives. With Shamir Computer, WorkSpace, and Office, people with presbyopia (age-related loss of near vision) no longer need to hold their head in awkward positions to see. The lenses are customized so the wearer can hold their head and neck in a natural, comfortable position while enjoying perfect focus.
