Signs of Computer Vision
People who spend a lot of time working on a computer run the risk of developing digital eye strain or computer vision. Computer vision symptoms range from headaches to dry eye to blurred vision. If you’re having trouble with your eyes, see your optometry specialist at Prudhomme Vision in Manchester for a checkup. The following are some of the most common signs of computer vision.
Focusing on your computer screen for extended periods of time can strain the muscles in your eyes causing them to become tight. This tightness can lead to headaches, blurred vision, and eye fatigue. If work obligations require consistent computer use, be sure to take breaks periodically to rest your eyes.
Staring at a computer screen for hours at a time can blur your sight, making it difficult to concentrate on your job. Blurred vision can also occur by constantly shifting your gaze from the computer screen to the keyboard and back. Computer glasses could help resolve this problem so you can continue to get your work done.
Computer users tend to blink less than normal due to focusing intently on their computer screen. Blinking helps produce tears to moisturize your eyes. Reduced blinking can lead to dry eye. Redness, dryness, itchiness and eye fatigue are all signs of dry eye. Dry eye is a byproduct of computer vision. If you think you may have dry eye, see your eye care specialist for a checkup. We’ll recommend medications to alleviate your symptoms.
Working on a computer under poor lighting can cause headaches and eye strain. Glare off your computer screen can also cause headaches as it forces you to strain your eyes when reading what’s on your monitor. Correcting these problems can eliminate the risk of headaches and protect your eyes.
