Fundamental Shift in Use of Vision Past: Primarily distance vision Today: Intermediate/ near Fundamental Shift in Use of Vision Past: Primarily distance vision Today: Intermediate/ near

Computer Use by Presbyopes Continues to increase: • Number of individuals • Hours/week/individual Computer Use by Presbyopes Continues to increase: • Number of individuals • Hours/week/individual

Computer Use by Presbyopes Driven largely by specific applications: • Email • Social networking Computer Use by Presbyopes Driven largely by specific applications: • Email • Social networking sites

Computer Use by Presbyopes Baby boomers: • 1 st generation to use computers through Computer Use by Presbyopes Baby boomers: • 1 st generation to use computers through majority of career • Continuing use into retirement

Computer Use by Presbyopes Nature of Presbyopia: Loss of Accommodative amplitude • Necessitates a Computer Use by Presbyopes Nature of Presbyopia: Loss of Accommodative amplitude • Necessitates a reliance on lenses to enable clear viewing at intermediate and near distances

LCD / Widescreen Displays Rapid acceptance of technology has compounded the need for improved LCD / Widescreen Displays Rapid acceptance of technology has compounded the need for improved intermediate viewing, and specifically wider intermediate areas within lenses

Optometrists’ Quotes “Up until now I basically gave up on these patients that have Optometrists’ Quotes “Up until now I basically gave up on these patients that have visual fatigue symptoms. I didn’t feel like I had anything to offer them in my clinical arsenal. ” “There really isn’t enough products for us to pick from for dealing with some of these accommodative disorders that we’re identifying. ” “The progressives don’t cut it for those patients who spend great deals of time on the computer. ”

Current Lenses: Design Limitations Current Lenses: Design Limitations

Current Lens Designs: Limitations Given nature of intermediate viewing at 50 – 70 cm, Current Lens Designs: Limitations Given nature of intermediate viewing at 50 – 70 cm, current lenses available are less than optimum: • SV – when set up for intermediate distance, no facility for more plus at near • No clear viewing at full distance

Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Bifocal – when set up “normally, ” no clear Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Bifocal – when set up “normally, ” no clear area for intermediate distances • Typical response is for wearer to tip head back and lean forward

Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Bifocal – when set up for intermediate distances, with Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Bifocal – when set up for intermediate distances, with a small add for near viewing, wearer sacrifices clear distance vision

Current Lens Designs: Limitations • General-purpose PAL: intermediate area is 3 rd priority, after Current Lens Designs: Limitations • General-purpose PAL: intermediate area is 3 rd priority, after Distance and Near • Intermediate area is narrow and located below center, requiring head tipping to see desktop screen clearly

Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Near Variable Focus lenses: significant step forward in visual Current Lens Designs: Limitations • Near Variable Focus lenses: significant step forward in visual flexibility and comfort • Many wearers still request full distance vision

Computer/Intermediate Lens Ideal Design? Computer/Intermediate Lens Ideal Design?

Ideal Lens: Design Factors Feature set for ideal “occupational” lens for extended intermediate and Ideal Lens: Design Factors Feature set for ideal “occupational” lens for extended intermediate and near viewing would of course be a tradeoff between a variety of factors: • Vertical placement of intermediate power • Width of intermediate area • Slope of power curve

Ideal Lens: Design Factors • Percentage of prescribed add power delivered at fitting cross Ideal Lens: Design Factors • Percentage of prescribed add power delivered at fitting cross • Corridor length • Area of full distance power at top of lens • Minimum B measurement required

Ideal Lens: Delivery Factors Just as important as the optical design factors are the Ideal Lens: Delivery Factors Just as important as the optical design factors are the “delivery” issues: • Rx prescribing requirements for Doctor (distance, intermediate, or near Rx? ) • Fitting parameters for dispenser • Ordering information needed by lab
