Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is caused by the eye constantly focusing and re-focusing on the characters on a computer screen. As a result, you may experience a variety of uncomfortable symptoms such as:

  • Headaches
  • Loss of Focus, Blurred Vision
  • Shoulder and Back Aches, Wrist Pain
  • Eyestrain, Burning and Tired Eyes
  • Blurred Vision
  • Dry Eyes

Sitting at a computer generally causes a person to look straight ahead for long stretches, work in a dry office or home environment, and to blink less often. These factors can lead to vision problems. Additionally, computer use requires specific vision skills, which add further demands to the visual system and contribute to eye and vision discomfort.

If you think you may be suffering from CVS, call our office and make an appointment today! With a comprehensive eye examination and a few questions about your computer work habits, we can accurately determine if you are suffering from computer vision syndrome.
