Understanding Computer Vision

In our modern world, computers, smartphones, and similar technologies are ubiquitous, with many of us spending hours staring at illuminated screens during leisure or work. Unfortunately, this widespread use has led to a significant increase in Computer Eye Strain, affecting up to 90 percent of consistent computer users. The resulting eye strain and related symptoms can lead to physical fatigue, decreased productivity, and increased errors. Minor discomforts like eye twitching and red eyes are also commonly reported.

  • Eye strain.
  • Headaches.
  • Dry eyes.
  • Blurred vision.
  • Neck and shoulder pain.
  • Comprehensive Eye Exams: Our experienced optometrists conduct thorough eye exams to assess your vision and identify any underlying issues contributing to computer vision symptoms.
  • Personalized Recommendations: Receive personalized recommendations for reducing eye strain, including prescription eyewear, ergonomic adjustments, and the 20-20-20 rule.

  • Seeking Prevention Strategies: Suitable for individuals seeking proactive strategies to prevent and alleviate computer vision symptoms.

Tips to Reduce Computer Eye Strain

Optimize Your Workspace

  • Rearrange Your Setup: Modify your workspace to minimize external light impact. Close shades to reduce sunlight glare, and position your computer screen to the side rather than in front or behind, decreasing strain from bright sunlight.

Monitor Settings Matter

  • Upgrade Your Monitor: If you’re using an old tube-style monitor, consider upgrading to an LCD screen. Tube monitors have noticeable flicker and glare, contributing to eye strain. LCD screens lack flicker and often come with an anti-reflective surface, enhancing visual comfort.
  • Adjust Display Settings: Optimize brightness, text size, contrast, and color temperature to create a more comfortable visual experience.

Prioritize Regular Eye Exams

  • Essential Eye Care: Regardless of the eye condition, regular eye exams are crucial. For those spending extensive time on computers, initiate an eye exam before starting and continue annually. This allows the eye doctor to monitor changes and address symptoms promptly.
  • Explore Computer Glasses: Consult your eye doctor about custom “computer glasses” designed to alleviate computer eye strain
