A whole range of eye strain and pain issues are considered computer vision syndrome, or CVS, if they are caused by prolonged computer use. It is believed that between 50-90% of people who work at computer screens show symptoms. Kids who spend a lot of time using tablets or computers can also suffer from symptoms of CVS.

WHY DO COMPUTERS AFFECT VISION?

CVS is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome as it’s caused by the repetitive eye motions and refocusing that using computer screens cause. Lighting conditions, screen flicker, and glare also can add strain.

Symptoms only get worse as the eye ages if preventative measures aren’t taken.

You may be suffering from computer vision syndrome if you experience:

  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Dry, red eyes
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Neck or back pain

TREATMENT OPTIONS

The easiest treatment is basic improvements to your workspace but further treatment may be necessary. Schedule an appointment with Glendale & Montrose Eye Care Centers today to speak to doctor about healthy digital eye care.
