vision for the new generation

In today’s digital age, it is common to find patients with an otherwise normal range of vision experiencing problems primarily due to extensive exposure to digital screens. The symptoms that such patients face typically include eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes and neck and shoulder pain.

We are a hospital-based eye chain that prides itself in bringing international standards of optical and ophthalmic care to India. We at ben franklin are one of the few players in the space offering advice and a range of eye care solutions especially curated to help address the range of symptoms associated with Computer Vision Syndrome.


As a first step, our staff help in providing patients with a detailed overview of the combination of factors that results in Computer Vision Syndrome. It includes:

  • Discussing and explaining ergonomic seating arrangements optimal to the maintenance of good eye health.
  • The best ways to position light around digital screens.
  • The recommendation to deploy anti-glare screens as well as the necessity to take regular and frequent breaks.

If none of these changes help to alleviate the symptoms associated with digital eye strain, then our staff introduce patients to the idea of using lenses that are specially prescribed to meet the unique visual needs of digital screen viewing. It includes prescribing special lens designs, lens powers, lens tints or lens coatings to maximise visual range and improve comfort.

At ben franklin, we take pride in stocking a range of highly specialised eye solutions that include blue-cut lenses, digital lenses and lenses specially made for home and office wear. Our private eye wear label, Clariviz, provides blue-cut or blue-protect coating lenses for people who spend a lot of their time indoors and are exposed to blue-violet light from LEDs as well as TV, computer or tablet screens.

Our stores also house the high-end Crizal® Preventia clear lens that provides users with protection against long-term damage to eyes by filtering harmful UV and blue light. This no-glare lens gives users the best vision in all light conditions and is resistant to smudges, scratches, dust and water.

We also specialise in stocking a range of digital lens options, including lenses from Eyezen and Zeiss that maximise the distribution of the prescription power on the lens to provide extra focusing support for digitally connected people.

Also, we offer home and office lenses, including from Nikon. They provide users with a custom-made solution and offer crisp, clear vision of the three main working distances, in line with the needs of each user. Whether it’s for reading, for use at the workplace or for correctly assessing room distance, we have the lens for you.

As the requirement to access and use digital screens grows, we at ben franklin understand the need to provide comfortable, customised solutions to help everyone see better. Walk into any of our stores to experience first-hand how you can improve your vision by choosing the right solutions for a fast-paced digital life.
