Glasses and movement

Without the right glasses, we see with our body, i.e. through slouching and a poor working posture.

The right glasses are therefore a prerequisite for a good working environment. But you cannot guarantee a good working environment through eyewear alone.

There are two factors that are absolutely crucial to remember when it comes to the eyes, vision and a good working environment:

  1. Sight is sense No. 1 – if you can’t see properly, your body will compensate for that – and pay the price. This is where glasses and configuration of the monitor(s) can make a difference.
  2. The eyes need frequent breaks and brief time away from the screen – preferably every half an hour. Glasses do not help here – this depends entirely on your habits at the desk and the work culture in the office.

A good working life also demands healthy habits

A good working day at the desk is about more than the right equipment and the right working posture alone. It’s also about your energy at the desk. Your energy increases in line with your ability to establish the right balance between work, movement and recovery. With good habits, you can establish that balance.

Breaks are important for your body and your brain – and every bit as important for your eyes.
