Computer Vision Syndrome

If you spend a lot of time each day in front of a computer, you are likely to experience symptoms of computer vision syndrome (CVS). CVS is a term used to describe a collection of symptoms caused by prolonged computer use. Symptoms appear because the eyes and brain react differently to words on a computer screen than they do to printed text. With more and more adults and children using computers on a daily basis, CVS has become a common vision complication.

And an increasing number of people are seeking relief from eyestrain and irritation caused by CVS.

Coping with computer vision syndrome

If you are having trouble with your eyes while using a computer, the following tips are worth a try.

  • Consider a pair of computer glasses
  • Blink, breathe and break. Blink more often, take frequent deep breaths, and take a short break every hour
  • Use artificial tears for dry or irritated eyes
  • Reduce screen glare by adjusting light levels
  • Increase font size on your computer screen

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
