Dry Eye Syndrome
The doctors at Tucker-Kudrna-Holec-Young Eye Care Centre are trained in the area of Dry Eye Syndrome as it affects over 60% of our population on a continued basis or as an episode-based condition associated with environment or working conditions. Teenagers are also at risk for this eye condition as it is a growing epidemic and linked to several over the counter medicines.
Computer Vision Syndrome
Because teens are often using computers and video games more and more these days, it is important to consider this impact on vision. 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 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, but know that you can reduce these symptoms with computer vision syndrome by just changing the way you work at your computer.
