I'm going to take glasses to work with the computer. My vision is 0.5 and 0.75. Should I take not just glasses that refract the rays of the screen, but also with lenses to improve vision?

Based on the question, I mean that you have weak hyperopia, the so-called. "farsightedness" +0.5 and +0.75. At this degree, at a working distance from the monitor (about 1 meter) and when working with a keyboard (about 40 centimeters), a significant deterioration in visual acuity may not be felt. However, there is a problem and the deterioration will progress. I recommend ordering lenses for working at a computer (cutting off the harmful part of the blue spectrum), stress relieving (supporting accommodation). Such lenses are in the lineup of almost all manufacturers and cost adequate money. Of course, after consulting an optician.

Without an eye test, it is impossible to give a recommendation whether you should use corrective glasses, or just a special coating, unfortunately, is impossible.

But, as a rule, even a small correction, selected taking into account individual characteristics and visual needs, avoids overworking the visual system.

0.5; 0.75 + or -? It is worth going to an ophthalmologist and getting a prescription, on the basis of which glasses for work will be selected. If you use glasses when reading, an office lens is ideal (takes into account focusing at near and medium distances).

If I were in your place, I would not even take glasses to work with a computer, but would only use it while driving, or if you need to look into the distance. Those. would not wear glasses on an ongoing basis, but lugged around. And then the eyes are the same lazy assholes, like you and me. The more often you use glasses, the more the eye muscles become "lazy". Before, I wore glasses only when necessary, and my vision was kept at -1.5, -1.75, in everyday life I easily did without glasses. Then I got married, my husband has a little fetish for girls with glasses, and he persuaded me to wear glasses all the time. As a result, my vision sags more and more, I can't do without glasses at all. Now -3.75, while wearing glasses weaker, by -3, so that my eyes are not lazy at all. By the way, our district nurse, having a vision of -3, does without glasses, because she trained her eyes with exercises and without using glasses.
