Computer Use And Vision

Computer Screens and Vision

More than half of all computer users experience eyestrain, headaches, blurred vision and other symptoms directly and indirectly related to increased, sustained nearpoint visual stress associated with the use of computers.  Visual stress also may underlie complaints of general body fatigue, reduced efficiency at work and higher error rates as the day progresses.

Most of these symptoms are alleviated through a combination of correcting workstation conditions, posture, stress-relieving lenses prescribed specifically for computer use, and in some cases, through improving vision skills with visual training.
