What is Computer Vision Syndrome?
We all know that life sometimes revolves around technology, and these devices have become our way of communicating to the world. We work at the computer, we play games on them, and even use them to reach out to family and friends on social media. Sometimes it's just for a short 30 minutes; however, more often than most, it's as much as 3-4 hours straight, without getting up to stretch or go outside for some fresh air. As a result, this can cause ‘Computer Vision Syndrome’ which is defined as eye fatigue, strain, discomfort, and dryness that results from prolonged computer use. Our staff at Carolina Vision Care in Greenville wants you to know the signs of computer vision syndrome so you can seek treatment.
