Signs of Computer Vision Syndrome

With more people working from home than ever before, the amount of time spent in front of computer screens continues to climb. Although there is a convenience of having this technology, it can affect your vision. More specifically, computer vision syndrome is something that affects many people. At Exquisite Eye Care - Friendswood, we can provide treatment for this condition and tips to avoid it from recurring.

Understanding Computer Vision

Here are some of the most common signs of computer vision:

Severe headaches - Straining the eyes can lead to intense headaches. As people spend more time in front of a screen, it is common to squint to see clearly. You can develop tension headaches from eye strain. If you are routinely getting headaches while working on a computer, you may have computer vision syndrome.

Dry eyes - Staring at a screen for hours at a time can lead to dry eyes because people tend to blink less while using a computer.

Blurred Vision - If you notice blurry vision, you are spending too much time in front of the screen.

Pain in your neck and shoulders - Not all symptoms of computer vision syndrome are necessarily eye-related.

Treating Computer Vision

Treatment for computer vision syndrome could be as simple as adjusting a few habits while using your computer. While you are working on the computer, remember to blink often, take breaks, and reposition your seat. Our eye doctor can also provide blue light blocking glasses that can protect your eyes from specific wavelengths of light that have been known to disrupt sleep patterns.
