Americans are spending far more time in front of one type of device screen or another – up to 10 hours or more each day. Doing so can put a tremendous strain on the eyes, resulting in a range of troublesome symptoms.

What are the Symptoms?

The signs of computer eye strain and computer vision syndrome can include:

  • Sore eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Myopia (Near-Sightedness)
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Tips to Improve Your Vision

There are some steps computer users can take at home to help reduce the physical effects of computer eye strain and computer vision syndrome. These include:

  • Optimal Lighting - Daylight from a window provides the best lighting conditions to work in. For in the evenings, use full spectrum lighting to simulate daylight and minimize eye strain.
  • Reduce Glare - Position your computer or device screen where there will be the least amount of distracting glare on the screen.
  • Take Regular Breaks - Giving your eyes a rest from looking at a computer screen is essential for reducing eye and vision strain. Take breaks throughout the day as well as for extended periods, such as in the evenings or on the weekends.
