Computer Vision

Computers are an important part of our lives, but that screen time can lead to a condition known as computer vision syndrome (CVS). In addition to eye fatigue, it can cause symptoms like dry eyes and headaches. Serving Idaho Falls, ID, (Merlin Dr. and Pancheri Dr) Pocatello, ID, St. Anthony, ID, and Rexburg, ID, we at Summit Eyecare can provide optical care and help you treat and manage these symptoms.

What Is Computer Vision Syndrome?

The term "computer vision syndrome" is used to refer to a range of symptoms and vision problems caused by extended screen time. While it's frequently caused by computer usage, it can also result from the use of other electronic devices, including cell phones and tablets.

It can cause a range of symptoms and can be a source of significant discomfort. Thankfully, these symptoms can be treated and managed. If you suspect that you have computer vision syndrome, discuss your symptoms with an optometrist on our team.

Symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome

Anyone that spends at least two consecutive hours using a computer or another screen per day could develop symptoms of computer vision syndrome. Some common symptoms include:

  • Eye fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness
  • Pain in the neck and shoulders

Typically, these symptoms appear after a few hours of screen use. Since these symptoms can also be signs of other conditions, you should have your eyes checked by eye doctors.

Managing Digital Eye Strain

Not everyone can avoid screen time, but there are ways to manage symptoms caused by computer vision symptoms. Adjusting the angle of your screen and taking steps to reduce glare can put less strain on your eyes.

In addition, you should make a point of giving your eyes a break throughout the day. Every so often, look away from your screen and stretch. Make a point of blinking so that your eyes can stay lubricated.
