What Is Computer Vision?

Computer vision is a broad term to define the various symptoms associated with the overuse of electronic devices. It's afflicting more people than ever as most jobs rely on computers in a home or traditional offices. While computer vision may not cause permanent damage to your eyes, it can cause a host of unpleasant symptoms that can affect your quality of life and productivity at work.

Symptoms of Computer Vision

Many symptoms could lead to a diagnosis of computer vision. They include:

    • Dry, itchy, and red eyes
    • Blurry vision
    • Headaches and backaches
    • Muscle fatigue
    • Scratchy and tired eyes

Getting a comprehensive eye exam to rule out other eye conditions is essential. Only a qualified eye doctor can make an accurate diagnosis.

Treating Computer Vision

Luckily, computer vision is highly treatable, and you can implement some easy steps to make your eyes feel better. We will start by educating you on some simple environmental changes. These include looking away from your computer after every 20 minutes of work at something 20 feet away for about 20 seconds. The 20-20-20 technique helps keep your eyes comfortable. Other steps involve blinking more often and reducing the glare on your computer screen. It's also good to practice good posture to ease the strain on your back, neck, and shoulders.

Many of our patients also like to invest in a pair of blue light glasses. These special glasses filter out the blue light emitted by your computer screen. The reduction of blue light helps keep the eyes feeling fresh and comfortable. Some patients also benefit from a standard pair of eyeglasses. They may be nearsighted and strain their eyes when looking at the computer. We'll be able to provide you with all your options at our office.
