Computer Vision Syndrome Causes & Symptoms Seen By Our Optometrist

If reading a digital screen were as easy as reading a printed page, no one would experience computer vision syndrome. But letters made up of pixels on an illuminated screen offer some challenges to the eyes’s ability to focus and resolve images with clarity. Screen glare, contrast problems, tiny fonts and other factors can force the eyes to work overly hard, especially if you already have a refractive error or other eye condition. After an extended period of staring at your computer monitor or smartphone screen, you may start to experienced blurred vision, eye fatigue and headaches. Since eyes tend to blink less frequently when they’re fixed on digital screens, you may also experience the redness,itching and foreign body sensations of dry eye.

Even the color of the light emitted by modern LCD and LED screens is cause for concern. These devices flood the eye with light in the blue part of the spectrum. A specific band of frequencies known as HEV (high-energy visible) light doesn’t just aggravate your digital eye strain; it’s also believed to increase your long-term risk for macular degeneration, a retinal disease that can lead to partial blindness.
