Computer Vision Syndrome

According to the American Optometric Association, computer vision syndrome, or CVS, is a condition recently diagnosed as more and more individuals spend long hours daily in front of computer screens. The syndrome defines a set of symptoms that occur as a consequence of constantly focusing on computer screens, and may include non-eye-related symptoms such as shoulder and neck pain as well.

What are the symptoms of computer vision syndrome?

Even if you’ve always had perfect or near-perfect vision, you can develop computer vision syndrome if you use a computer for long periods of time. Symptoms include:

  • blurred vision
  • dry or scratchy eyes
  • headaches
  • eye strain or discomfort
  • problems focusing
  • pain in the neck or upper back

Although symptoms might appear mild at first, left untreated, they can quickly worsen over time and cause other vision-related problems to develop. H.C. Deuchler offers comprehensive computer vision services to help patients of all ages effectively manage their symptoms and ensure vision remains as healthy as possible.
