Seeing Well at Work?

Nope. Or at least that’s what new research finds. Despite nearly all employees (98 percent) saying that “seeing well at work” is important to them, today’s employees aren’t seeing as well as they could be — and it’s affecting how they feel and perform. According to the 10th annual Transitions Optical Employee Perceptions of Vision Benefits survey, eight in 10 people are plagued by vision-related symptoms at work—ranging from eye fatigue and headaches (half of employees), to dry eyes and blurred vision (more than one in three). The survey uncovered two factors specifically—digital eyestrain and light sensitivity—that have been linked with these symptoms and are affecting employees’ ability to do their jobs. For more on this report, Transitions Optical offers employee and employer focused tools and education free of charge at a newly launched site: healthysightworkingforyou.org
