Ergoweb Answers: Computer Eyewear

Question: Has anyone found an economical, effective method to accommodate heavy computer users wearing progressive lens eyewear? Does anyone know of modifications that can be made for wearers of progressive lenses, other than glasses with computer lenses, increasing font size of display or increasing the angle of the chair recline, to help them interact with the screen? Getting creative with monitor adjustment doesn’t seem to work, since users are attempting to look through the bottom portion of their glasses to see the screen, thus creating neck and upper back issues.
