(PRWEB UK) 16 July 2013

(Marketing Empire PR) - To many, the biggest lure of the tech sector lies in possibility of becoming the next big thing, and, of course, the potential for lucrative returns never hurts. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts and, oftentimes, a great idea, a significant number of tech startups are destined for failure.

According to Inside Startups, 20 percent of businesses are doomed to fail within the first year of being established, and about 50 percent fail within three years. There are a number of reasons why an enterprise may fail to prosper, but The Financial Times Guide to Business Start Ups has said that 20 percent of failed companies would still be in operation if they had gotten advice at the beginning of their venture.

After making changes, a website or app can be resubmitted, and members can continue the process until they are satisfied with their feedback and ready to roll out their new site or app.

Ilya Berelson utilised the innovative review site to get feedback on a number of projects and also for help in designing He commented, Nothing is more valuable to a product or service than a first impression.

With companies like driving the innovation and support of new Internet enterprises, many startups in the tech sector will easily move past being considered risky business to being hailed as good business.

The solution for your computer related vision problems

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

The increased use of computers and digital devices are taking a toll on the nation’s eye health. The Vision Council of America estimates that more than 10 million Americans suffer from vision problems related to computer usage. A study conducted by the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Optometry found that there is a direct correlation between proper vision correction and worker productivity.

Recognizing that there was a growing need to provide high quality, affordable, readymade eye protection for the millions of computer users, Computer Eyed, a division of Vision Concepts International, developed a line of innovative optical quality computer glasses that correct for both computer vision, (mid-range,18”-30” from object) and reading/keyboard vision, (close, 8”-12” from object). The patent-pending lens also has an anti-glare coating that reduces the digital glare emitted from the average computer screen, thus providing the user increased visual comfort and acuity.

“Most people don’t know that they are using their mid-range vision when viewing a computer,"said Optician Lester Frankel, but by wearing eyeglasses designed to correct for mid-range vision, visual discomfort will be eliminated."

Custom made computer glasses can cost consumers hundreds of dollars. Computer Eyed’s over the counter bifocal computer readers are affordable, fashionable, and prevent the symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome.

“All I can say is thank you, I have been using your computer glasses for over a month and my tired, itchy eyes and headaches have disappeared. Great style and quality and they didn’t cost me a fortune”
