dc.description.abstract Background: Handheld digital devices such as cell phones and tablets have changed the visual demands of students and working adults. Extended near work can cause visual symptoms such as discomfort or tired eyes. Lenses have been introduced to the market that help relieve visual fatigue for pre-presbyopes. Methods: In this study, examiners used the Rotlex Class Plus analyzer to evaluate four styles of fatigue reducing spectacle lenses, each with a different "bump" in add power. Three distance powers of each style of lens were masked, and analyzed by each student with the Rotlex analyzer and a lensometer. Results: Each style and power oflens was analyzed for varying characteristics such as the area of the full add power, the characteristics of the transition zone, and the distance between the optical centers. Conclusions: This information will provide eye care practitioners with more data on fatigue reducing lenses, which will help determine which lens is most appropriate for each patient. en_US
