In today’s digital world, the lives and eyes of contact lens wearers are constantly moving between on-screen and off-screen activities.
- More than 90% of adults use digital devices for more than two hours a day1 and nearly 60% of adults use digital devices for more than five hours a day1.
- Research conducted by Indiana University found that more than 75% of individuals who use digital devices report eye tiredness and dryness once a week or more, and 35% once a day or more.2
Sustained focus on close-up digital devices strains the eye’s accommodative system. That’s where Digital Zone Optics™ lens design can help.
Digital Zone Optics™ is a breakthrough lens design for sphere lens wearers who use digital devices. Digital Zone Optics™ lens design helps ease accommodative burden as wearers move their gaze from on-screen to off-screen and back with less effort.
How it works
- Multiple front-surface aspheric curves are employed across the entire optical zone.
- These curves distribute power evenly to simulate more positive power in the centre of the lens.
As a result, Digital Zone Optics™ lens design helps ease accommodative burden without impacting distance vision.
You’ll find Digital Zone Optics™ in Biofinity Energys™ contact lenses.
