In brief: Age dependent
Young people have sufficiently flexible eyes that special glasses for computer work are not necessary.
Over age 40 is the presbyopic era when readers are required. For sustained computer work it can be helpful to have a bifocal with an intermediate distance segment on top and a near segment below. This has provided great relief for this task in many of my patients.
