Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) also known as digital eye strain is characterized by eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, neck and shoulder pain, that result from prolonged computer, tablet/e-reader and cell phone use.

These symptoms are typically caused by poor lighting, glare on a digital screen, improper viewing distances, poor posture, and uncorrected vision problems.

Since computer monitors are typically 20 to 26 inches from your eyes, your regular glasses may not be the best option for computer work. Computer glasses can be prescribed to meet the unique visual demands of computer viewing. Different lens designs, powers and/or lens tints are available to help maximize visual function and comfort.

CVS or digital eye strain can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye exam with special emphasis on the visual requirements needed for your computer or digital device work station to make sure you are getting a correction specific to your needs.
