Fall Begins with Good Vision!

Sep 06 2016 | Essilor

How time flies!  Yesterday was all about lazy days, the pool, drinking cocktails and barbecuing ... Today, you're going back to work. And heading back into the daily routine means back to sitting in front of screens!  The big question: are your eyes ready?

Poor vision: poor quality of life

Did you know that poor vision can have serious consequences for your day-to-day routine?  It can even lower your quality of life! Ask yourself if you are having trouble completing simple tasks, if you feel abnormally fatigued at the end of the day, if driving has become a stressful activity or you don't feel motivated to watch a movie or read a book.  Maybe you are starting to ask yourself what is going on.  It would be a shame to start the fall with ocular discomfort!

Screens make you tired!
Who hasn't experienced itching, irritated eyes from sitting in front of a screen?  There's no point in hiding it - we all spend a lot of time in front of them! At work, it's in front of the computer, while taking public transit we're on our cell phones and then in front of our tablets to see what friends and family are up to ... It's an immense amount of time - and it is tiring! It can also cause headaches as well as lead to stiff necks, backs and shoulders!

To ensure that your eyes are in good health, visit your eye care professional. They will be able to explain the harmful effects of the blue light emitted from computer screens and how to counteract the effects with the Eye Protect System: an innovation designed to filter blue light while also blocking UV rays.

The choice is clear: taking a little time to improve your eyesight, will improve your life!

And, for your children: Essilor Junior!
