Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome, also referred to as Digital Eye Strain, describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer, tablet, e-reader and cell phone use. We offer Computer Vision Syndrome solutions to increase productivity and improve employee satisfaction.

COMPUTER VISION SYNDROME

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), or Digital Eye Strain, arises from prolonged use of digital devices like computers, tablets, and cell phones, causing discomfort and vision issues. March, known as Save Your Vision Month, prompts efforts by the American Optometric Association to educate on preventing digital eye strain. Symptoms include eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and neck/shoulder pain, often exacerbated by factors like poor lighting and improper posture.

Prevention strategies include the 20-20-20 rule: take a 20-second break every 20 minutes to look at something 20 feet away. Computer glasses are specialized eyewear designed to optimize vision during screen use. They correct for intermediate viewing distances, reducing symptoms like blurred vision and discomfort. Lens designs vary, from single vision lenses to occupational progressive lenses, tailored for specific vision needs.

Anti-reflective coatings and light tints can enhance viewing comfort by reducing glare and blocking harmful blue light emitted from screens. Proper management of lighting, viewing distances, and posture are essential in minimizing the impact of Computer Vision Syndrome.
