Computer Vision Care
When most of our patients tell us how much they use the computer each day, we almost always get the response “all day.” Significant eyestrain can often result from this long term task; in fact, according to the American Optometric Association, eye and vision problems are the most frequently reported health care problems among computer users. We can work with you to reduce the stress caused by computer use and maximize your comfort and productivity.
Computer vision syndrome involves the many eye and vision problems related to near work that are experienced during or related to computer use. These symptoms include not only eye strain, but also dry eyes and chronic back or neck pain. Optimizing your comfort while working at the computer often involves a combination of the following: utilizing a specialized pair of glasses, altering your work space for maximum ergonomics, re-directing light sources to reduce glare and reflections, taking frequent mini-breaks, and using a humidifier in the office. We at Perspectives Vision Clinic understand the importance of efficiency, productivity, and comfort in the workplace and we will work with you to maximize all of these and more.
