Eyestrain

Do you suffer from:

  • Headaches
  • Burning Eyes
  • Eye Fatigue
  • Blurry Vision
  • Double Vision
  • Red Eyes
  • Squinting

If you have any of the above symptoms, you may be experiencing computer related eyestrain.

The high visual demands of computer work and our computer environment take their toll on our vision. Eye fatigue and headaches occur on a daily basis. Unnoticed visual problems like presbyopia, eye coordination difficulties, and astigmatism become much more apparent with computer use since you are focusing on a light source and not hard print.

Your examination for computer eyestrain will include a specific history related to your computer use. Be prepared to describe the type of computer work you do, the number of hours, hardware positions, and the working distances in your environment. Trial measurements of your visual acuity at the appropriate working distances and an evaluation of your eye coordination and movement skills will be performed.

Prescription lenses made just for your visual demands and computer environment can make your computer work more efficient, improve your focusing ability, and alleviate many of your symptoms.

Computers & Children
Be sure not to forget your children when it comes to computer eyestrain. Millions of children use computers every day for education and recreation, both at school and at home. Their visual demands are much higher than ever before. Video games, handheld devices, and computers have led to more visual strain in our children’s lives.

A child will typically not tell you if they have symptoms, as they may not know the difference between blurry and clear. Eyestrain to them may even feel normal.

A complete yearly vision evaluation is essential for detecting symptoms that affect our children. Take the time to schedule an exam to ensure that their eyesight is crisp and clear now – as well as in the years to come.
