Computer Vision

Have you ever added up the time you spend in front of your computer, tablet, smart phone, or other electronic device? Looking at screens is a normal part of our lives in the 21st century.

Unfortunately, eye problems associated with this activity are also on the rise. Even if you have never had any eye problems before, you may have computer vision syndrome symptoms after a brief amount of screen time. Even if your symptoms are mild, they can worsen and may cause other vision problems.
 
Symptoms may include:
• Blurry vision
• Eye Strain and discomfort
• Headaches
• Dry, scratchy eyes
• Neck and/or shoulder pain
The severity and length of computer vision syndrome symptoms depends on how long you spend on the computer, your posture, lighting, glare, the angle of the monitor, and whether or not you have other diagnosed or undiagnosed vision problems. If you already have astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, presbyopia, aging eyes, and/or diabetic eye problems, your computer vision symptoms may worsen. This can even be the case if you already wear prescription eyeglasses or contacts.

Many regular contact lenses and eyeglasses are not designed to reduce the problems caused by computer screens. The best solution is a separate pair of glasses designed for computer use. In essence, a specific tool for a specific task. Specialized computer glasses are custom designed for your specific computer distance and needs.
In addition to these treatment options, there are many things we can suggest to reduce CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome) symptoms.

Computer Setup
Adjust your monitor so that it is about 15-20 degrees lower than your eye level when seated between 20-28 inches away from the screen. Be sure to sit and work with proper posture.

Adjust Lighting
If you can, reposition any lighting, or your computer, to minimize glare and use natural lighting whenever possible.

Eye Rest and Blinking Breaks
Every 20 minutes during your work, look away toward a distant point for 20 seconds to refocus your eyes, and give them a 15 minute break after each 2 hour computer session. Also, remember to blink more frequently to keep your eyes moist.

With  the proper combination of eyewear and self-care, you can minimize computer vision syndrome symptoms and other modern day vision problems. Please contact us for an appointment if you would like to discuss these computer vision issues with your doctor.
