I keep hearing about ”Computer Vision Syndrome” and its affects on eyes. I came across an article that goes in depth on the condition and what you can do to alleviate the symptoms. Reading glasses can help, but it’s best to see your optometrist for professional treatment and diagnosis.
An excerpt from the article ”Tired Eyes Need a Break. How to beat computer vision syndrome ” by By Dr. Melanie Amarasooriya, is below
“Computer vision syndrome is the name given to a collection of signs and symptoms related to eyes and vision that occur due to use of computers. This is commonly found among those who use computers more than two hours per day. Statistics in the U.S. suggest that 1 out of every 6 people needing eye examinations have symptoms of Computer vision syndrome.
Symptoms of Computer vision syndrome:
1. Eye strain
2. Blurring of vision
3. Double vision
4. Difficulty looking at light
5. Burning sensation and irritation of eye
6. Headache (This could also be associated with neck pain, back pain and shoulder pain)”
