Computer vision syndrome (CVS) afflicts those who find themselves constantly in front of computer screens. While eye health professionals have yet to find CVS as a cause of any permanent eye damage, the pain and discomfort associated with the problem can affect workplace performance or the enjoyment of home activities. Symptoms include eye irritation, blurred vision, headaches, backaches, muscle fatigue and neck pain.
With a few preventative measures, however, the symptoms associated with CVS can be easily erased. The General Ophthalmology Service at Scheie Eye Institute offers many techniques for preventing CVS.
