Giving Your Eyes Support
Digital eye strain is a common issue that can occur when you spend too much time on your digital devices, like smartphones, laptops, and tablets. High screen time usage can result in dry, tired eyes, aching shoulders, and other uncomfortable symptoms.
We recognize the importance of protecting your eyes and provide support through a wide range of eyewear options, including:
- ZEISS digital lenses
- Avulux migraine lenses
- Essilor lenses
- Blue-blocking lenses
We know avoiding screens all day isn’t realistic, so instead, we want to help you manage the effects of digital eye strain and use screens comfortably. Contact us to schedule your appointment today.Book Appointment

When we stare at digital screens, like smartphones and computers, we tend to blink less than normal, causing our tear film to evaporate more quickly than it should.
To reduce the risk of developing dry eye due to digital eye strain, we recommend taking regular breaks from screen time, blinking frequently, using artificial tears, and wearing eyeglasses with blue light filters.
Light Sensitivity & Avulux Lenses
Light sensitivity, also known as photophobia, is a common symptom experienced by individuals suffering from migraines. This condition can make exposure to light uncomfortable and further cause migraine symptoms.
Avulux Migraine Lenses are designed to manage light sensitivity by filtering the most uncomfortable light. By doing so, they also serve as photophobia glasses, providing relief for those who experience discomfort or pain when exposed to certain light wavelengths.
These lenses may help patients with migraines and light sensitivity in navigating their daily activities with less discomfort.See & Co is one of the 2 offices in all of Virginia offering Avulux Migraine Lenses.
Our Digital Eye Strain Solutions
We know when digital eye strain settles in, it can be challenging and often frustrating. Fortunately, we offer a variety of eyewear options that feature innovative technology to help protect your eyes and maintain your comfort.
Our eyewear comes in a variety of styles and options so you can look great while preserving your comfort.
Avulux Migraine & Light Sensitivity Lenses
Not all light waves are the same. Research shows that painful light exists in the blue, amber and red spectrum while green wavelengths of light can be soothing.
Avulux lenses work by precisely absorbing up to 97% of the most harmful blue, amber and red light while allowing in up to 70% of soothing green light. Wearing Avulux before and during any exposure to harsh light can help manage the negative impact for people living with migraine and light sensitivity.
Avulux lenses are a fit for both prescription and non-prescription glasses, and virtually any frames. So you can block harmful light and look great at the same time!
ZEISS Digital Lenses can help provide relief from digital eye strain caused by excessive screen time. These advanced lenses can help reduce eye fatigue and visual stress by optimizing near-vision zones for digital screens.
ZEISS Digital Lenses may be ideal for individuals who spend a significant amount of time in front of digital screens, such as computers, tablets, and smartphones. Additionally, ZEISS Digital Lenses can be tailored to your individual needs, including prescription and non-prescription options.
We also offer Eyezen lenses, designed by Essilor. Eyezen lenses are a solution for single-vision wearers who experience high visual fatigue. The strain on the eyes is reduced by these lenses, which also support eye focus efforts and enhance the overall visual experience.
Premium Anti-Reflective Coatings
ZEISS DuraVision is a series of premium lens coatings designed to enhance the durability and performance of eyeglasses. These coatings, developed by the inventors of anti-reflective technology, ZEISS, comprise a range of options tailored to different user needs.
Different coatings such as DuraVision Platinum and DuraVision Sun provide protection against scratches and anti-reflective coating for protection against glare.
Crizal by Essilor is a line of anti-glare lenses that are designed to offer protection against glare, scratches, smudges, water, dust, and even UV rays, thereby enhancing your visual experience. Unique technologies and benefits are incorporated into all Crizal coatings, which serve as an invisible shield for both the eyes and the lenses.
Blue Light Filters
ZEISS BlueGuard Lenses are designed to protect your eyes from potentially harmful blue light that is emitted by digital devices such as computers, tablets, and smartphones.
Rather than applying blue light-blocking properties as a coating on the lens, ZEISS BlueGuard Lenses incorporate these properties into the lenses themselves. This allows for other premium lens coatings to be applied on top of them.
ZEISS BlueGuard Lenses also provide full UV protection, making them an excellent choice for individuals who spend a lot of time outdoors or in bright environments.
We also offer Essilor lenses that may help protect your eyes from blue light and digital eye strain. Essilor lenses help reduce the stress on your eyes from digital screens, which can cause eye fatigue and discomfort.
They are equipped with technology that filters blue light, preventing it from reaching the eyes. This allows for more comfortable and relaxed vision during extended screen use.
