What Are the Symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome?
Computer vision syndrome can mimic a lot of other eye conditions, which may make it difficult to realize that this is what you are suffering from at first. In addition to general eye discomfort, those with computer vision syndrome may experience:
What Causes Computer Vision Syndrome?
When you look at a screen all day, you subject your eyes to heavy amounts of blue light or high-energy visible light. These are short-wavelength light rays that are the hardest for the eyes to interpret because of how easily they scatter.
These types of lights also completely reach through your eye and into your retina, which is sensitive to light. The combination of these factors makes looking at screens consistently very hard on your eyes, often resulting in computer vision syndrome symptoms.
How Can Katonah Eye Care + Aesthetics Help?
We have seen a great deal of computer vision syndrome cases at Katonah Eye Care + Aesthetics and know just how to manage them. When you arrive, Dr. Gordon will provide you with a full range of vision and eye health tests to make sure that computer vision syndrome is the likely cause of your symptoms. He will then recommend exercises and offer guidance to help ease the strain on your eyes and allow you to continue your screen-related activities without experiencing such severe negative effects from blue light. In some cases, he may also recommend anti-glare and/or yellow-filter glasses that can offer relief by filtering blue and harsh light. This will allow you to continue your work at the computer without discomfort or eye strain.
