Computer Vision Syndrome
These days, many of us have jobs that require us to stare at computer screens for hours at a time and that can put a real strain on your eyes.
Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is strain on the eyes that happens when you use a computer or digital device for prolonged periods of time. Anyone who has spent a few hours on the computer has probably felt some of the effects of prolonged use of the computer or other digital technology.
Working adults aren't the only ones affected. Kids who stare at tablets or use computers during the day at school can have issues too.
Computer work also gets harder as you age as the natural lenses in your eyes becomes less flexible. Somewhere around age 40, your ability to focus on near and far objects will start to go away.
Common signs and symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome include:
Neck and shoulder pain
