Course Description:

Did you know that 65% of Americans report experiencing symptoms of digital eyestrain. 27% of Americans do not know computer eyewear can protect against digital eyestrain (DES) as reported by the Vision Council's Digital Eyestrain Report 2016. In fact, given the time that everyone spends on computers and new media, I suggest that New Media Eyewear is the consumer's primary pair of glasses. Or, to look at it another way – the primary pair should be one designed to best work for computers and new media devices like smartphones and tablets. This product spotlight describes HOYA iD Space, HOYA iD Screen and HOYA iD Zoom.
