Our team is here to explain computer vision syndrome and how we can treat it.
What Is Computer Vision Syndrome?
Computer vision syndrome occurs due to the frequent use of computers and screens. The blue light emanating from these digital screens can impact the function of your eyes if you use them too frequently. Too much exposure to this blue light can lead to blurry vision, headaches, and eye strain. If you have any of the following symptoms, be sure to schedule an eye exam with our team today to determine what could be impacting your vision:
• Unexplained headaches
• Blurry vision
• Eye irritation, such as itching, dry eyes, or red eyes
• Back pain
• Neck pain
An eye exam allows our eye doctor to detect notable changes in your vision and determine the cause of your condition. We can then treat your computer vision syndrome with contacts or eyeglasses to improve your vision.
Computer Vision Treatment
For those who are consistently on a computer or other device, investing in glasses or contact lenses that filter out the blue light from these screens could help protect your vision. These lenses can also help reduce glare and reflections from the screen. These are often the source of damage to your eyes.
Our optometrist can also provide guidance and techniques to reduce your risk of developing computer vision syndrome. Some advice may include moving your computer screen further away, adjusting your lighting to minimize glare, and using the 20-20-20 rule to prevent eye strain. This rule involves looking at an object 20 feet away for 20 seconds for every 20 minutes you look at a digital screen. These adjustments can reduce eye irritation, pain, and blurry vision.
