Computer Vision Syndrome Treatment
Many people spend their workday on a computer, which can cause significant changes in a person's vision, comfort and efficiency. This of course can also be extended to looking at our phones. In order to determine if you are experiencing issues from computer vision syndrome, you'll need to have a thorough eye exam. This exam is different from a typical routine eye exam because it's used to detect vision changes in individuals who spend more than two hours per day utilizing their laptop.
If you begin noticing changes in your vision as your work day progresses or your vision becomes blurry or distorted, it may be due to excessive computer use. Various treatments are available to improve your vision and reduce your symptoms. Not only that, but taking frequent breaks and certain eye exercises can also prevent eye fatigue and allow you to focus better.
What to Expect During Your Appointment
When you visit us, we will perform a complete eye exam and review your medical history to have a better understanding of your eye health. If any issues are detected, our optometrists may order more tests or perform an additional exam. Once we have an accurate diagnosis, we will prescribe the necessary vision correction and tailor other recommendations based on your specific needs. We also recommend eyeglasses that can block out blue light and preserve your vision as you are using your computer.
