Symptoms and Treatment for Computer Vision
Computer vision is caused by a number of factors, from looking at a screen for an extended period of time and the glare to the lighting in the room around you. Symptoms include blurred vision, eye strain, headaches, and dry eyes. People who wear contact lenses can also experience exacerbated symptoms, especially when it comes to dry eyes.
Eye drops and resting one's eyes regularly throughout the day can help to alleviate these symptoms. Make sure that the lighting in your office or work area does not contribute to more glare and is at the right level for seeing everything properly. If you are also experiencing neck and back pain be sure to adjust your seat as necessary. Positioning your screen at the correct height at eye level will help to relieve discomfort due to having to look up or down while working on your computer. Take regular breaks to get up and walk around and also give your eyes a rest from the computer screen and its glare.
There are special glasses that can be used while working on a computer or device that can help to relieve the symptoms of computer vision. If your symptoms continue to worsen, especially blurred vision, it may be time to visit your eye doctor. If left untreated the symptoms of computer vision can worsen over time and may even lead to more serious ailments.
