What Is Computer Vision Syndrome And How To Fix It?

We live in a fast paced technological world where we cannot imagine our lives without computer, laptops, mobile phones and many other electrical gadgets. It would be right to say that these devices have become an integral part of most of our lives. But, do you know how badly the uninterrupted use of the computer affects our eyes? The very common problem detected among the people who spend most of their time in front of the computer screen is Computer Vision Syndrome.

When we work on a computer screen, our blinking rate goes down. This causes the tear film on our eyes to break and dry up sooner, resulting into red swollen eyes. The computer vision syndrome does not only affect our eyes, but also it has a bad effect on our overall health.

Fatigue, headache, back pain and neck stiffness are the most common problems associated with Computer Vision Syndrome. If you are experiencing any of the above mentioned problems, then it simply means that your eyes are getting fatigued easily with the excessive use of computer or any other digital devices.

Here are some important tips that will help you recover from CVS, but if you don’t see any improvement it is highly recommended to talk to your family eye doctor Brickell.

  • Use high quality anti-glare glasses when working on a computer.
  • Decrease the amount of time you spend on the computer.
  • Give your eyes a relaxing massage every day.
  • Sit properly in front of a computer to avoid back pain and neck stiffness.
  • Get at least 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep for a healthy lifestyle.

Even if you are not suffering from any kind of eye related problems, it is recommended to have an eye exam Brickell at least once a year. At Eyewear Boutique Brickell, we offer a range of branded contact lenses, eyeglasses & prescription glasses Miami at highly competitive prices.
