Your phone is ruining your eyesight, but there's something you can do about it.

Do you have a cell phone? If so (and I'm guessing you answered "yes"), there’s a large chance your eyes are straining more and more every day because of it! The perfect solution would be to use digital devices less, but we know that’s not realistic. We want you to function in our digitally-advanced world in a more comfortable way. Instead, Coley & Coley offers the ZEISS Digital Lens, which makes the use of digital devices less straining on your eyes.

Let me explain.

First of all, 90% of American adults have a cell phone. Even worse, 60% of them use that phone and other digital devices more than six hours a day! As a result, 70% of American adults suffer from Digital Eye Strain.

The simple use of digital devices is challenging on the eye, but it also adds to the amount of switching between near and far vision significantly. Think about how many times you glance at your phone, then look up to the person you’re having lunch with, then down at your phone, then at whatever commotion is happening on the other side of the restaurant … And this is happening all day long.

This constant use of digital devices and switching between near and far vision leads to Digital Eye Strain, with symptoms such as blurred vision, tired or dry eyes and neck discomfort.

But we're here to help!

The ZEISS Digital Lens is primarily designed for single vision patients who use their phones, tablets, and computers throughout the day. According to the ZEISS website, “It provides a wide, clear distance zone and comfortable near zone for stress-free viewing of digital screens.”

The benefits of these advanced lenses include stress and strain-free digital viewing, comfortable all-day vision, relief from Digital Eye Strain, and wide material availability.

You can't go wrong with a Zeiss Digital Lens. Stop by Coley & Coley to see if it's exactly what your eyesight has been missing!
