Computer Vision Syndrome
If you are like most Texans, you spend a significant amount of time staring at computer and phone screens each day. Helping you deal with the problems created by computer vision is one of the specialized optometry services of Today's Vision Atascocita in Humble, TX.
Understand the Problems of Excessive Computer Screen Viewing
Viewing computers screens is now a necessary part of everyday work for many people. Whether at the office or at home, extended viewing of these screens will strain the muscles of your eyes. In the extreme, uninterrupted viewing of a screen or other displays can create what is called Computer Vision Syndrome.
If you are constantly viewing a computer screen or display you may experience symptoms such as:
- Dry and irritated eyes
- Blurred vision
- Vertigo and dizziness
- Polyopia and double vision
If you ignore these symptoms, they can increase in severity and create other problems. Fortunately, there are several proactive steps you can take to lessen the impact of your requirement to spend hours in front of a display. Dr. Bertsch-Smith, our optometrist, is trained and experienced in evaluating your specific situation and developing a personalized approach to your needs.
We find that it is desirable to have an eyewear prescription that provides lenses for computer vision. This will usually be different from the lenses you use for reading and driving. Making it easier to focus on the standard distance to your computer screen lessens the effect by causing less strain on your eye muscles.
An optometry exam can quickly evaluate the correct solution, and you can also get coatings to minimize glare and lighting issues. Using glasses prescribed specifically for computer vision is an important step towards proper eye care and avoiding the symptoms of CVS.
Giving Your Eyes the Personalized Care They Deserve
Of course, our eye care services cover a broad spectrum of vision needs. Our optometrist has experience in evaluating patients for LASIK surgery and providing both pre- and post-procedure care.
With the bright sun we see in this part of Texas it is also important to protect your eyes with quality sunglasses. We specialize in providing fashionable frames that ensure you avoid the harmful effects of being in sunlight.
Sports vision is another important part of comprehensive optometry care. We can evaluate your activities and recommend lenses and frames that not only protect your eyes but also provide enhanced vision performance. Modern optometry provides significant insights into how lighting and other conditions affect sports ranging from hunting to baseball to swimming.
