Computers and Your Vision

When the hours add up… 60 million people suffer from eye problems due to computer work—and that number is rising by a million a year. Why? All those hours you spend at the computer are straining your eyes, creating a condition known as Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Since the computer is part of your work—and part of your life—the best option is to learn how to help your eyes. What’s it feel like? The symptoms are dry, red, irritated eyes; headaches; back and neck aches; and trouble focusing. Lots of people don’t even know they have CVS. But now that you know what to look for, you can guard against it. Tips to prevent CVS? • Keep your computer screen within 20″-24″ of your eyes • Keep the top of your computer screen slightly below eye level • Minimize the distance between your computer screen and any documents you need to reference while working • Use tear replenishing drops, which can be found over the counter to soothe irritated, dry eyes • Adjust lighting to minimize glare on the screen • Take a break every 15 minutes to focus on a distant object • Blink frequently Dr.Warren Johnson/Dr. Burt Bodan ,
