Computer vision syndrome glasses

Сomputer vision syndrome glasses

If you have “computer eyes” and suffer from blurry vision when looking at a computer screen, you may want to consider getting special glasses that help with computer vision syndrome. Computer vision syndrome glasses have prescription lenses designed to permit you to work more comfortably at a computer or when using other screen devices.

What causes computer vision syndrome

If you use a computer or other screened device for extended periods without taking breaks, you could develop computer vision syndrome. Symptoms include everything from blurry or double vision to headaches, and the main cause is digital eye strain. Reading text on a screen is more difficult for your eyes than reading a book or magazine for several reasons.

When you read something on a printed page, you often have a light shining on it from behind you.

Because of the brightness of the computer screen, most people don’t use reading lights when using any electronic device like e-readers or smartphones. The bright digital light is hard on your eyes, and you tend to blink less often when reading from a screen. Blinking less can lead to dry, irritated eyes.

Dryness

They may itch and rubbing them makes refocusing and seeing clearly more difficult. You may start to squint because of the glare, which can also irritate your eyes. Taking frequent breaks can help prevent eye strain, but most people also benefit from computer vision syndrome glasses.

Whether computer, smartphone, or notepad, screens are generally not at an ideal distance from your eyes

For a computer screen on a desk, you are often much further away from the text you’re reading than you would be if you read it from a printed page. People hold smartphones and pads at various distances, from a few feet to a few inches from their eyes. Neither extreme is ideal for reading, and watching videos at the wrong distance can strain your eyes, too.

With today’s broad range of electronic screen devices, people often don’t use proper posture to read or watch videos.

Most people sit with the reading material at a comfortable angle and an ideal distance from their eyes when reading a book or magazine. They don’t necessarily use good posture when using electronic devices. Poor posture results in neck muscle strain, headaches, and digital eye strain.

The extensive use of electronic screens of all types causes what's been termed computer vision syndrome, which includes both eye and muscle strain.

Symptoms of digital eye strain include blurry vision, eye pain, headaches, dry or irritated eyes, double vision, neck pain, and fatigue, or even dizziness. Some conditions like poor lighting and extreme air movement can make symptoms worse. Bright overhead lights or strong blue-spectrum backlights can worsen computer vision syndrome, as can air currents from vents or fans. Even if you don't think you see air currents, your eyes react and constantly adjust when air moves in front of brightly lighted screens.

If someone with uncorrected vision problems uses a computer for extended periods, the symptoms of eye strain are compounded and their vision problems can worsen.

Because many people spend hours looking at one type of screen or another, eye strain and other problems are becoming extremely common. Glasses with lenses designed to reduce eye strain can help anyone to prevent or alleviate computer vision syndrome.
