The highest percentage of digital eyestrain complaints are in the 18-40 age group. Since most people use digital devices at closer ranges than printed materials, symptoms of presbyopia are occuring at earlier ages.
Compounding the likelihood for these symptoms is the Covid pandemic. Education and work has shifted nearly full-time digital for many. With recommendations to social distance, people are even further adding to their screen time by using video chat and online gaming in place of normal social activities.
The epik™ Digital Relaxed Vision (DRV) lens is an enhanced single vision design with patented back-surface free form technology that comes in a +0.50 or +0.75 power boost in the lower half of the lens. It allows the eye muscles to relax for easier accommodation and reduced eyestrain - ideal for pre-presbyopic wearers who need extra near vision support.
The back-surface free form technology gives this lens a wide, natural distance zone without strain or peripheral blur. The wide enhanced near zone with a slight increase in plus power to the wearer's usual distance prescription allows the eye muscles to relax and makes accommodation more easily maintained.
To provide a complete visual health solution for every patient, the epik™ DRV lens is available from GSRx® in all materials with both:
