    The eye problems may be cause by computer radiation and long-time staring at the screen .More and more office workers are being tortured by computer radiation at all times that their eyesight is getting worse and worse, alongside with eye dry, itch and fatigue. In the office, radiation sources are throughout every corner, from computers, printers, scanners, fax machines, etc. The best solution is a pair of computer glasses which is especially designed to reduce the harm of computer radiation to the eye. plain glasses don't have the function ,so computer glasses are necessary for you .

    No, you can't use plain glasses instead of computer glasses to protect your eyes. Plain glasses are totally different from computer glasses. Computer glasses can help block computer reflections and filter glare for our eyes while a pair of plain glasses can do nothing because the glare and reflections can penetrate the lenses and hurt our eyes too.

    No, you can't. Plain glasses can't help protect your eyes from reflections and glare. You'd better buy a pair of computer glasses ASAP. The people who are working in front of a computer for a long time every day may get CVS symptoms. A Pair of computer glasses can help relieve this symptoms because our eyes will suffer less from computer damages after we wear a pair of computer glasses. And computer glasses can help you to read longer.

    No, you can't. You'd better have your eyesight checked first and then order a pair of computer glasses with your prescription if it is needed. My brother is a programmer too. He often sits more than 10 hours in front of his computer. He often applies some artificial tears to lubricate his eyes. He also wears a pair of prescription computer glasses. He gets his prescription computer glasses from an online optical store. He said that the glasses sold online are much cheaper than that sold in any physical shops. You can have a look online first.
