However, there may be two cases. If you are under age 40, the reason for eye strain and blurred vision is that your eyes are unable to focus on the screen or having trouble switching focus from screen and back to keyboard.

This is where glasses for computer come into picture and help you view better and let you work on digital devices comfortably. Whether you agree or not, but computer glasses have their own significance and they should not be confused with normal prescription glasses or reading glasses.
Unlike bifocals and reading glasses, computer glasses are designed to correct intermediate zone of vison (means computer screens positioned at 20-26 inches from your eyes). These are special types of eyeglasses that allow you to work on a computer screen comfortably, reducing eyestrain.
The reason why computer eyeglasses work differently than rest of the spectacles is due to the special purpose lenses that are not recommended for driving or normal use. There are three main types of lenses used in manufacturing these eyeglasses:
These types of lenses provide depth of view by relaxing the amount of accommodation needed to keep things in focus at the distance of digital screen. Moreover, they reduce the chances of eyestrain and blurred vision and are ideal to be used by young and old computer users.
