Signs of Computer Vision Syndrome

Whether you use a computer for work or leisure activities, prolonged use can lead to computer vision syndrome. As a result, you may experience eye strain and blurry vision, which can prevent you from completing certain tasks. At Summit Eyecare in Pocatello, Rexburg, Idaho Falls, and St. Anthony, ID, we provide eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment to help you see more clearly. Before visiting us, take a look at some signs of computer vision syndrome below:

What Are Some Signs of Computer Vision Syndrome?

While it is unclear if computer use damages your eyes in the long term, you can still experience severe discomfort. This discomfort can make it difficult to focus and get enough sleep at night. Some signs of computer vision syndrome include the following:

•             Eye Irritation

•             Headaches

•             Blurry Vision

•             Dry Eyes

•             Back pain or neck pain

•             Double vision

How to Prevent Computer Vision Syndrome

Preventing computer vision syndrome before it happens can lower eye irritation and stress. For instance, it may be necessary to commit to using your devices less often. Some prevention tips our optometrists recommend include:

•             Take regular breaks to reduce eye strain and avoid tension or muscle fatigue

•             Blink more often to keep your eyes moist and prevent eye irritation

•             Schedule regular eye exams, which can help our optometrists detect any conditions early and provide prompt treatment

The Importance of an Eye Exam

When you visit us, our optometrists will perform an eye exam to learn more about your eye health and speak with you about your symptoms. We can also answer any questions you may have regarding computer vision syndrome and offer treatment that will ease your symptoms. Taking care of your vision health should be a top priority, as your eyes are necessary for navigating everyday tasks. While you should have an eye exam every one to two years, our optometrists can suggest how often to visit us, depending on your condition.
