Computer Vision Syndrome
Computer Vision is becoming more and more common because so many people work in front of a computer all day and use a computer at home on their personal time. Recent studies indicate that computer vision syndrome affects as many as 75% of computer users. Computer vision syndrome presents when a person spends a good deal of time working on or in front of a computer. This vision condition is not extremely dangerous, and there is no reason to panic if you experience some of the symptoms described in the CVS tab, but know that you can reduce these symptoms with computer vision syndrome by just changing the way you work at your computer.
Presbyopia is a condition that often affects people once they reach their early 40’s. They require glasses to read items such as a newspaper or a menu at a close distance. Your lens loses the ability to focus adequately at the appropriate distances. There currently is no treatment to prevent presbyopia, but regular eye exams can help to ensure that you have the proper reading glasses or contact to help you. Without the proper glasses or contacts you may experience eye strain or headaches that become more harmful to your health.
